We enjoyed the opera singers and the waiter service was attentive. The food was sadly just above average, if they worked on this it would be somewhere I would definitely have chosen to return. We used a groupon voucher (may girlfriend bought me as a Christmas gift) but were a little disappointed that there were multiple add-ons for example £4... More

My daughters treated their father to a night at Bel Canto for a Christmas present. My husband was so impressed we returned taking his mother who is 94 and a former classically trained singer and my eldest son (23) who is more a fan of XFM than opera. Without exception we all loved the evening. 4 young singers who delighted... More

What a great evening! The food was very nice. It would have been better if there had been a choice of vegetarian dishes, but there was one starter and one main, and both were very good. It is expensive for the food alone, but that is compensated for by the quality of the operatic singing. The night we were there... More

This is a fabulous restaurant that has opera singing waiting staff. Bel Canto is certainly not cheap. We managed to get a prepaid Voucher for 3 courses for 2 people for £54 but the regular price is £59 per person. However, the food was much better than I expected with plenty of choice. The wine was expensive too with the... More

Everything about my evening at Bel Canto was 5 stars! From the staff, the food, the performances and the setting of the restaurant itself. Everything that my boyfriend and I ordered was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the lobster bisque for a starter, and then either the duck or steak for main, and definitely the chocolate fondant for dessert. Everything... More

A real revelation! From our arrival to our departure the evening was excellent. The service was prompt and efficient and the food was of a very high standard. What, of course, made the evening was the standard of singing by the four soloists who were also waiting staff. They were all very friendly and happy to talk to the diners.... More

The idea of being serenaded whilst eating adds that little bit extra to what is already a fine dining experience. This venue ticks all the boxes for value and entertainment and would certainly return. The whole evening ran just like clockwork and the waiters were always there when needed and to be congratulated on their performance in every respect. We... More

I picked this venue after searching for an opera experience and reviewing comments on social media and videos on You Tube.

I had no reservations for the day, the restaurant was completely full and the management had no choice but to let us go. However, that same night, we recieved a special invitation to dinner the next night. They were extremely gentle and considerate. Besides that, the food is great. And the performers are a must see.
