This restaurant was close to my hotel and as an opera lover I thought it would be fun. There's a prix fixe menu - the food was beautifully presented. The wine list was very pricey for some good moderate wines you might pick up cheaply for sipping at home (one had a 1000% markup on what I had paid in... More

We were expecting Classic FM type popular arias to be performed by am-dram wanna-be celebs, but what we got was a good wide ranging repertoire provided by skilled, passionate and attractive performers.

The service there is warm but still professional, I plan to continue to go with opera loving friends. At £59 for 3 courses it is admittedly not "cheap" but... More
