Never fails to disappoint me. It is fine dining restaurant with a special occasion feel to the place. Prices are very reasonable for what you are served. This is a restaurant perfect for many occasions where a more formal atmosphere is required. It would be hard not to open a bottle of wine with your meal here! Delicious food with... More

The combination of a fine dining experience, the prompt and attentive service and most of all the performance of young artists with opera aria's during diner has given us a more than memorable evening.

We had a great time there, most entertaining, and the food was surprisingly good. Much like the singing, the service was outstanding. We look forward to our next visit.

"How do you celebrate a Wedding Anniversary? This year not even landing on Comet 69p beats this! And it took them 10 years to get there. You have to walk a long way to find a restaurant as cool, truly great, perhaps a whole lifetime, as is my case. At Bel Conto, the waiters and waitresses switched roles to sing... More

I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. After a number of emails it was arranged that it would be done in Bel Canto on a Saturday night, we arrived and were greeted by name, shown to our table which had a red rose on it and was covered in rose petals. My girlfriend had no idea of what was to... More

Our first visit to Bel Canto which we generally enjoyed - the ambiance was certainly warm and the opera singers were brilliant and engaging. However, the restaurant part of the operation let the side down. We had a charmless and insincere waitress who seemed to see us as an irritating inconvenience; our cover included bread that was well past its... More

A wonderful evening. I had visited before and took a friend as a birthday surprise. He just loved it. The food is excellent and we had a great waitress ( irena ? From Lithuania). The singing was superb and we left smiling at the end of our visit.

We had a wonderful time and would recommend this experience to all. Its such a unique experience in a small setting where the performers are truly engaged with their audience. All staff are friendly and keen to please. We enjoyed the collective toast during one of the songs, this was a nice touch. It was our wedding anniversary and they... More
