We like how restaurants go out of their way to create something more than just a selection of dishes. This is the case with Celeste y Don Carlos, a family restaurant near Alicante’s historic center that always strives to provide a unique dining experience.
Celeste y Don Carlos is the type of restaurant where you may breathe a family environment while also enjoying great cuisine, transforming your visit into a true culinary experience.
In a previous post, we introduced you to this restaurant which has become one of our favorites in the province of Alicante, and today we’d like to show you some of their most popular dishes.
We’ll put you in the picture for those of you who don’t already know. Celeste y Don Carlos opened in 1985 and is innovatively divided into two unique sections: the fine-dining part “Celeste” in the back and the more informal, walk-in area “Don Carlos” providing tapas in the front.
It is presently handled by the second generation, chef Jorge Jurado, who aims to make guests feel relaxed and entirely at ease with his considerable culinary experience.
The fine-dining section of the restaurant has been recommended in the Michelin Guide and Conde Traveller, and has received the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for the years 2016-2019. One of the nicest aspects of this incredible restaurant is that the pricing is relatively reasonable, especially given that it is haute cuisine and that each meal comes with a specifically selected wine pairing.
Now let’s talk about the food. The restaurant offers International cuisine always serving creative tasting menus that change periodically.
Here below are some of their finest creations.
Sea bream tartar, mango, avocado and beetroot cream with its juice
Roasted salmon taco with creamy cauliflower, almonds, and quinoa
Tomato jam with basil and goat cheese
Sea bass on red peppers and red onions
Carpaccio of pineapple, coriander, and mascarpone ice cream
