Wow, that was one hell of a great time I had there. My friend took me there for my birthday and she didn't tell me where were we going. I was shocked when the first waitress, after serving our starter which was a lovely soup, bursted into a wonderful aria! Then all the other waitresses and waiters took turn to... More

We celebrated my hubby's 50th. The performers were amazing! Food - average (sorry) and served way too fast, like in McDonalds!

Dined here on a Saturday night. Restaurant ambiance was nice.

Everyone was attentive, smiley, and made our dining experience enjoyable and unforgettable. The food was very good. Fixed menu with selection of starter,... More

I invited my friends to a Bel Canto and it was my second time there. I enjoyed it more this time as I reserved the best table. The performers were amazing and service and food were amazing too. My friends from Australia and Ireland enjoyed it to the max. Its not a place to miss then in London.

What a treat an evening at bel canto is! Super for that special occasion, or just a fab night out. The singers are all so brilliant. Food is freshly cooked, nicely presented and very tasty. BUT it is the operatic singers who really make the evening a great success!

We were celebrating a birthday and we had an absolutely amazing experience. The food was wonderful, but the wait staff/opera singers were beyond anything we expected. It was absolutely lovely evening and we made reservations to return before our London vacation is over. Thank you!

Although the menu was slightly restrictive the food was very good and most enjoyable. The entertainment was unique, enthralling and wonderful. The only "downside" was that all the wines were heavily overpriced !! Nevertheless, the four of us will, most certainly go again to hear such fantastic opera singing.
