At Bel Canto in Bayswater French cuisine and opera come together for London’s best unique dining experience!
Set in the Corus Hotel in Lancaster Gate, Bel Canto is suitable for all events and celebrations including birthdays and romantic evenings. Our opera restaurant attracts everyone from opera enthusiasts to curious tourists and culinary explorers. The modern French menu changes seasonally, and is complemented by a diverse selection of both French and Italian wines.
Bel Canto has approximately 60 artists on rotation. Every evening 4 singers and a pianist will perform a variety of arias from celebrated operas. The talented waiting staff will belt out everything from Verdi to Wagner while serving fine French cuisine!
During the evening you will receive a glass prosecco to join in with the artists to toast with them for the “Libiamo” of the “Traviatta”!
We attended Bel Canto following a favourable review and recommendation by a friend. We weren’t disappointed. Not cheap but excellent value for money and a truly memorable experience. Highly recommend.
We had a most memorable and delightful evening at Bel Canto with our family. The food was excellent, along with our chosen wine, and the opera.... well that was sensational. Our favourite excerpts from all the popular operas sung sensitively and emotionally by the student/ waitressing team! Many songs brought tears to my eyes... and the Drinking Song from La Traviata had everyone joining in with gusto and glass raising in time with the tempo!! The young woman playing the piano all evening without interuption, added to the relaxing ambience of the restaurant. An exceptional evening. Thank you.
Fabulous singing Fabulous food
We had a fantastic experience - The opera singers were outstanding and the service and ambience was second to none.
The food was of a good quality - it would be nice to have a wider variety on the menu.
Thank you for a wonderful birthday experience!
Since I own it It was great
Completely unexpected...and amazing! I don’t consider myself an opera buff - but this place was the perfect chance to sample the best of the best. Did I mention the points scored with the missus?
Opera was amazing, fantastic atmosphere and worth spending a night there
Intimate, attractive restaurant with excellent service from the manager, singers who waited table and other staff.
Food was delicious and very well presented. Set menu of two courses was pricey but the price included wonderful extracts from well known operas accompanied by a very good pianist.
A unique concept to enjoy food and entertainment of such a good standard.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and when next in London we will definitely book again.
Bravo and Brava.
Table 25 was perfect!
Beautiful singing and lovely atmosphere. Food a bit pricey for what you get but I suppose you are also paying for the singers. Great selection of songs and a good mixture of duets, solos and group pieces. had to ask for our water to be refilled a few times and not the most attentive wait staff but I prefer that to ones that do not leave you alone.
This was my second visit with son and daughter in law but it was the first at the London one for my husband. (Our first time had been in Paris for his 80th).
As previously we cannot find fault with anything and would visit again in the future.
Otrima l idea di combinare musica e cibo. Il menu è limitato qualità discreta. L ambiente ricorda il palcoscenico di un teatro. I cantanti sono bravi. Certamente una serata diversa. La musica è classica le canzoni da opere famase
Amazing experience with great food and excellent performance
It was nice , the concept is nice the music is amazing but the restaurant itself can do with a bit of change of decor and the lights should be dimmed a bit .
The experience from beginning to end was marvellous. My girlfriend loved it.
Wonderful evening, great performance by very charismatic opera singers. Lovely setting, very attentive staff.
As always fantastic singing great food and service. We both enjoyed the evening so much
Hidden jewel of a restaurant. Service, food, staff outstanding. The Opera singing is a real treat, very professional. My third visit, highest recommendation.
We had a wonderful evening at Bel Canto. The music was just beautiful!
The wait staff is made up of young opera singers, and very good ones. The food is excellent. The experience is unique --- to hear great arias, duets, quartets, sung very well in an intimate space. The singers were clearly having a good time and we loved the whole thing.
Do not miss this wonderful experience. Beautiful voices and outstanding food.
A superb evening of good food and exceptional talented operatic singers. A truly wonderful evening was enjoyed by all!!
Bel Canto is a magnificent find in London. Elegant decor, warm and gracious greeting, delightful personnel, efficient service, delicious and beautifully-served food, and music to die for! There is no way that I can think of that the experience could be any better. Clearly, this is a well thought-out and wonderfully imagined and executed concept. I've attended similar experiences in other cities, but Bel Canto is truly THE BEST! Quick - make an Open Table reservation -- then anticipate (and enjoy) an evening of food, music, and a delight to your soul.
Love the opera, the food and the staff are just lovely. Did not expert the food to have such standard.m and cant wait to listen to the bel canto Cd I got
Excellent evening in this small restaurant where we enjoyed fully the performance of the opera singers. Relaxing, impressive and touching : a fantastic experience !
A favorite place each time we come to London. Outstanding talent
Thought I would try Bel Canto for dinner and was very happy with the experience. The singers were fantastic and it really felt like we were at a show, just really close up and eating dinner at the same time. I would recommend to others.
It was as always wonderful an intoxicating mixture of great food wonderful staff and incredible singing
The singing was excellent but the food was very overpriced. Probably won’t be going back
This is our favorite place to eat in London. We came across this place by happenstance five years ago when we reunited:) we just came back for a visit and came back here for dinner. The experience was as good as we remembered. So special. The entertainment is amazing, the service is world class and the food is great.
Amazing evening.....highly recommend
What a wonderful surprise for our date night with my husband. The music was magical and loved the performances.
We had the most wonderful time here. The food was excellent and the singers incredibly talented. We would thoroughly recommend this place and we can’t wait to come back!
Excellent performers that are multitasking with providing good service and all under the perfect management of Ilyia. Keep up the great job !
Wonderful evening as always
Loved the music
How brilliant to dine and have live opera within metres of the table
Food was fine if a little pricey for 2 courses and a bit limited fir vegetariand, but when you add in live opera at no extra cost at regular intervals throughout the evening it was very special
Excellent atmosphere. Singers were a delight. Fabulous. However would love more cocktails on the menu.
Booked as a result of an evening at BelCanto Paris.
London has nowhere near the same level of ambience, choice of menu and was much
The limited food was well cooked but the wine list while comprehensive was for lottery winners only.
The artistes saved the day. They were excellent and the top "C" in Nessum Dorma was not achieved in
A final tip:- don't sit too near the piano.
A very pleasant evening with good food and good entertainment. We shall be visiting this restaurant again on our next trip to London.
Superb food, service and singing. An absolute delight from start to finish
A very spectacular evening that all my party of 4 are raving about. Superb value for money, and the food is first class.
The restaurant is intimate enough to feel that you are having your own private opera gala.
Don’t hesitate to try it out. I’m going back!
