4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

What a magical evening. A warm cosy atmosphere, lovely food and then 4 wonderful opera singers bursting into song every 15 minutes, right next to you. It made you tingle all over. What a way to have. dinner

Four singers and a pianist perform arias or duets between dinner courses in a basement supper club environment. Dinner selections are limited, but of good quality. The stars of the evening are the singer servers. Prices are a little high, but covering the talent with 50 diners is a tall order. The experience is worth the price.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. I had been a little concerned that the food or the service may suffer because of the singing but both were excellent as was the singing! The food was well presented. I had pork cheeks for main which was gorgeous. A little stingy with the vegatables I thought which were £3.50 extra and came in a... More

We have been here several times now and last night - our anniversary- was just as brilliant, as always. Lovely food, amazing singing and very friendly, chatty waiters (the singers). Special mention for Emily. This was our first visit since it had changed Manager, but the evening flowed as well as other visits. Must mention the brilliant pianist. Have recommended... More

Visiting Bel Canto is a must for anyone wanting a meal with a difference in Central London (it's only 50 metres from Lancaster Gate tube station on the Central Line) First of all, the food is excellent (I had a delicious fish soup, followed by an excellent main course of pork cheek with mash & veg while my partner had...

I thought that the Opera experience was really good as it was every 15 minutes for few minutes it didn't get too boring. The food was really good, we had the beef and pork which were good to perfection. Would recommend if you have not been to opera or not to keen on opera as you would get a sample.

My partner and I had a most amazing evening at this beautiful restaurant. Food was delicious, service excellent and Roberto's voice brought me to the tears! It was like sitting in the opera and be able to eat while watching it;) Ideal! Singer's performance was top notch(while serving the food)...and it was definitely worth to experience that!
