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 classic 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”!
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!
Amazing time with my fiance. Loved the restaurant, the food, the ambience and the artists.
Not our first visit but still so enthralled and enchanted as though we had just walked in for the first time. Food was great!
Great food and music! Treated my mum for her birthday and she loved it!
The experience of Bel Canto is delightful and completely unique. It does not fall into any normal category but is unforgettable from the viewpoint of music, service, contact with people of great talent,and the agreeable combination of good food and wine. One comes away as though from a dinner party with friends whose imagination, humour and ability to delight is boundless. Thanks to everyone in your team for two wonderful evenings.
Great experience all over! Wonderful food and singing
A second wonderful evening spent at Bel Canto. This time took some friends along and they thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you to everyone at Bel Canto for a wonderful time. Food and wine were good but the service and entertainment is where Bel Canto comes into it's own - unique and enjoyable and loved by all who attended. Will definitely be back in the near future.
Another excellent evening of opera and food and wine
I loved everything about it and so did my dinner partners. It was an early birthday celebration for me and the nice food, wine and absolutely excellent singing was amazing. Leaving the restaurant, I felt like I was smiling inside. I'm definitely going back for another evening of fun and would wholly recommend this to anyone,
We have been at Belcanto many times and find the prices going up and going up. In particular the wine list is very expensive putting people off from ordering bottles. Wonderful wine list but perhaps not everybody wants such super wines.
The Menu was restricted with many add ons to the set price,
The pianist this time kept disappearing and we felt we had less music as a whole than in previous occasions.
It's one of our favorite place in London. Singers and staff are so friendly and the singing is amazing.
We enjoyed the experience but it was not cheap.
Would have benefited by giving info re music rather than relying on singers giving individual table info if asked.
This was my first visit, was recommended by a friend so had huge expectations. The staffs was great, helpful and friendly. The opera singers were great, fabulous voices and great performers. I thought there was not much options in regards to the menu and quite pricey for the food. However the performance made it worthwhile. My only grudge was that I asked for a birthday song for my partner while booking the table but this did not take place.
