Fantastic experience

You do not have to be an Opera lover to enjoy and evening at the Bel Canto. Not only is the food good and the surroundings very French but the way the waiters bust into song for short periods makes the whole evening a great experience.

A brilliant and well balanced combination of warm welcome, excellent food, amazing opera sung by enthusiastic and engaging professionals, in a pleasant environment. You just can't help but smile and soak up the ambience. I've been twice this year and both occasions have been 'magic'. Thanks Bel Canto! Ps. You don't have to be an opera 'goer' to enjoy this...

This was out first visit to Bel Canto! We had a fabulous evening and the food was exceptional! We were celebrating our 15th Wedding Anniversary, the waiters/waitresses who were singing were amazing! We met 2 other couples also celebrating their Anniversaries and we had a great time getting to know them. Definitely recommend dining here. We will be back!

Located in the basement of the Corus Hotel, Bel Canto was a very pleasant surprise! Like many London restaurants, the tables are very close together (in my view, too close with just 6" between ours and our neighbours!). The format is simple - 4 singers and a pianist doubling as serving staff, supported by others, delivering a 2 or 3... More

This was a different and interesting type of Resturant, opera singing waiters and waitresses that serve you food and stop to sing opera while you eat. Defininatly something to make you smile, good singing good food and someone playing the piano whilst their singing. The singers don't sing for long periods of time which is good. A good night out!
