Wonderful food interspersed with excellent performances by singers that double up as waiters. A bit pricey but well worth it. Definitely recommended

What a fantastic meal, with first class entertainment. I took my wife here for our anniversary and was not disappointed. The food was excellent and it was served up by fantastic operatic waiters and waitresses who, at regular intervals, burst in memorable operatic acts. I could not recommend it as a gastronomic and entertainment treat, and neither could my wife,... More

What a lovely restaurant! Buried beneath the Corus hotel, opposite Hyde Park, this was the perfect place for my friends and I to celebrate a special birthday. Menu is relatively limited and, if honest, my main course wAs disappointing but everything else was great. More than anything, the young opera singing waiters were WAY better than we'd expected. Very professional... More

This is one of the hardest reviews I have written, as I love’d it, but and there was a very big BUT, and it puts a bit of a dampener on the whole ensemble! Firstly we took up and offer on Travelzoo, the evening started off costing £54. Add to that the additional costs of the evening which of course... More

We were informed they had run out of chicken (saturday) night. I explained to the manager ilya that due to religious reasons I... More

I am not at all surprised to see this review. This lady booked a table on Friday evening for Saturday night at 8.30. She immediately complained about the table on arrival despite it being close to the performance with a good view of piano, took offence to a clean and tidy service table with a mis-en-place plate on it (which...

We came as a party of 8 and had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant offers a limited menu with about 5 choices for each course but all meals on our table were delicious. My fish soup starter was full of intense flavour and the chocolate fondant was cooked to perfection . Of course this restaurant offers so much more... More
