The super high rating brought me in alone; I even left my friends at a nice Thai place (that I'd eaten at before) to try Bel Canto. I'm am delighted that I did. The atmosphere, the food, the drink, the patrons - all beautiful! Go out of your way to visit this place!

I've been several times to Bel Canto on a Groupon and loved it each time. It's a set menu, but you come for the opera. As said in the headline, I'm not a big fan. I sometimes go with my girlfriend to the ROH to please her. But here the waiters and waitresses sing famous songs in between the meals... More

Whilst I am not an opera buff, the singers and piano playing is worth the cost on their own , but when you realise that the food is included in the price it becomes a bargain.

I don't usually do repeat reviews but this is an exceptional place. We took guests on this occasion to see why we made such a fuss and it did not disappoint. Great singers, wonderful pianist and a nice ambience make it a memorable evening. meal not quite up to the standard of previous visits but enjoyable none the less Couldn't... More

Wow!!! Food amazing, service incredible and as for the opera singers, I was totally and utterly blown away. Such a different experience given by such a talented group of people. I've never listened to opera before but these performers delivered an incredible performance that blew me away. Definitely recommend

This is a unique dining experience: singing waiters and superb cuisine. In other establishments, the singing interferes with eating or the eating interferes with appreciating the singing: this in not the case at Bel Canto. The balance between savouring the food and the company of one's friends and relatives and appreciating the dramatic and vocal talents of the 'waiters' is... More

Enjoy the experience but keep the noise down was the feeling we left with. This underground operatic experience is a fun thing to do, in groups too, but not for a catch up and a natter. The waiting staff are trained operatic singers who burst into song between, and during courses actually. We took my mum to dine with family... More

Really fun evening. The food was excellent - a lot of choices on the set menu. And the singing was impressive. The waiters sing arias between serving the food. The restaurant is located in the basement of a hotel near Lancaster Gate - very convenient to get to. We had a very enjoyable evening here! We bought groupon voucher -... More

My husband surprised me with a reservation at Bel Canto as a celebration of the 30th Anniversary of our first date. As we were visiting London, I can't imagine a more perfect place to go. The wait staff sings opera, which makes for a wonderful evening. The menu is limited, but we enjoyed everything we ordered. The highlight of the... More
