“A Must for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Altho you can enjoy lunch at Celeste's we found ourselves enjoying breakfasts there. It's a great local place and that's an enjoyable element of the place. They were very friendly and it was a clean open air place. Everyday a set special breakfast was the breakfast...pancakes/waffles one morning, eggs another. It's a relatively inexpensive place and the food very good. Everything was prepared fresh from the kitchen. Celeste's has a few resident parrots that hang out and "talk" to you. One morning one actually landed on my boyfriends shoulder "begging" for food while he ate! He proceeded to walk down his arm onto the table and waited to be fed some of the breakfast burrito he was eating! Like I said...a local place and that's what we loo for!

“Good food, excellent atmosphere and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

My wife and I have been to Celeste's twice. Both times the service was excellent and the food (baleadas) was great. The place is quaint with outdoor charm including gekhos endeavoring to keep the mosquitos to a minimum (the tables are under a wooden structure but it is otherwise open air.)

“Good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

My girlfriend and I had pulled pork and shrimp baleada's at Celeste's Island Cuisine. They were tasty. Our waiter Marlon was a friendly guy. Celeste happened to be there while we were eating and she was very friendly too. She showed us a picture of the baby dolphin at the Anthony's Key Resort...cute. The parrots were there at the restaurant. They are funny but were a little pushy trying to get to our food. Fortunately Celeste kept them at bay.

“Looking for great food? Look no further....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you are looking for great local food, this is a must visit place. We have eaten here several times and it is always good. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has always been very clean when we were there. If you haven't tried their banana pancakes, you don't know what you are missing. They had several very healthy options now as well. They have a big pot of coffee early in the morning and it is very good coffee.

Also, if you want a different atmosphere, they had very funny parrots to talk to and even feed. They do have a cute bar with nice cold beer and lots of drink options as well with fresh fruit juice.

“What's that sound?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We heard a stranged noise while walking up to the market as we got closer we realized it was parrots talking so we decided we would go for dinner. While we missed the birds (they were in bed already) we did have a great meal with a good host. While having dinner we were visited by two animals one a stray cat who my wife just had to feed and the other a bit more exotic at first i thought it was a cat with out a tail after closer inspection it was a large rodent (not the gross kind) it turns out it was a agouti (related to the guinea pig) pretty cool little animal running around apartently they live on the property. We plan to go for breakfast with the birds over the next couple days. The food was a great value cheaper then we paid for lunch on the beach. Check this place out.
