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.

The food was ok. Singers good. Everything was overcharged especially the 'service charge'. We were given about 25cl of preseco which we thought was complimentory to toast the singers, but was then charged £7 for each. They also charge £4 ahead if you go on Saturday! The manager, as others have said, was a total arrogant so and so and... More

We had a wonderful evening thank you, shame we had to rush off to catch the last train home missing the 'Finale' - everything great, except wasn't expecting such a high service charge on the final bill. Thank you.

This was a special birthday for my daughter. We'd been to Paris Bel Canto and we were mightily impressed. London did not let us down. We all loved the total experience. Unless you go, whether you like opera or not, you cannot imagine the context of eating your dinner, whilst operatic singers serve you with food, fine wine and well-known... More

I treated an old friend to a meal at Bel Canto, my guest was thrilled by the experience. I thought I would get similar entertainment as 1st visit last year, it turned out apart from two popular songs, everything was different. Food quality was equally impressive.
