Located just a few minutes from Lancaster Gate tube station, Bel Canto is suitable for all events and celebrations including birthdays and romantic evenings. Our opera restaurant attracts everyone from opera enthusiasts to curious tourists and culinary explorers. The classic French menu changes seasonally, and is complemented by a diverse selection of both French and Italian wines. Bel Canto has approximately 60 artists on rotation. Every evening 4 singers and a pianist will perform a variety of arias from celebrated operas. The talented waiting staff will belt out everything from Verdi to Wagner while serving fine French cuisine! During the evening you will receive a glass prosecco to join in with the artists to toast with them for the "Libiamo" of the "Traviatta"! Bel Canto is an intimate Restaurant and is decorated with ruby red wallpaper, ornate opera costumes and crisp white linens. Bel Canto offers truly unique and intimate dining experience - the whole team cannot wait to share with you!

We recently came to Bel Canto to celebrate my father's 80th birthday and we all thought the food and the service were very good and the performances were great. If I had any criticism at all I would say that it's a pity that there were not some round tables as some of our party had their backs to the... More

This was such a wonderful treat! My friend and I weren't sure what to expect and we were presented with happy, friendly staff, DIVINE voices and scrumptious food all in a beautiful setting.

We first discovered Bel Canto several years ago when I brought my partner here for his birthday. I wasn't expecting a great deal as I'd been to a few other restaurants which purported to have opera singers and frankly the quality wasn't high but Bel Canto is a whole other experience ! The singers are uniformly great and on several... More
