First visit to Bel Canto, just fantastic food and entertainment Highly recommended.
My sister and I were floored by the music, food (presentation!), and service! We were so touched by the aria selections that we cried almost every time the singers went up! Their professionalism was outstanding and they were so kind and warm to the patrons. I wish you’d open a Bel Canto in Florida, where I live! I’ll be back🥰
Lovely birthday memories, twice already. Enjoyed the opera and the interaction between the performers and guests. Highly recommended.
Operatic brilliance with superb food ! Had such a fantastic evening and didn’t know what to expect! Food was excellent!! Singing was passionate and brilliant!! Would really recommend
Absolutely fantastic! Superb family evening out, everybody wants to go back again as soon as possible. The menu might not be wide, but the quality is good. You don’t need to order extra side dishes as there is plenty of food served. However, it’s not the food you go for, it’s the entertainment, and we’re we entertained? Holy Moly were we ever! The opera singing started off good, and rapidly passed excellent on it’s unrelenting journey towards amazing that it burst through by the third set reaching BELLISIMO and beyond from there on in. Cost? We looked at it like this. For the same money we might have sat in a cramped theatre seat some distance from the stage and managed an expensive glass of wine after a long wait during the interval. Instead we enjoyed a delightful meal in a cosy atmosphere with plenty of space but right there in the centre with the action all around. Singers serenaded tables, interacted with diners, gave simply amazing performances. To sum up; If you like opera, you’ll love Bel Canto. Possibly that last sentence is all you need to know about this place.
Overall, such a great idea and cool concept. But the value for money is no good at the moment. The starting price is £45 for only a two course meal. That made our meal last about 40 minutes in the entire 3 hours we were there. Of course we had the option of adding desert as an extra, which we did, otherwise we would have been sitting with nothing in front of us for 2 hours and 20 minutes. You can say the extra are optional, but the very nature of this particular restaurant is to make the dinner lasts (unless one only wants to hear a maximum of three songs in the whole evening). Add on top of that a tea/coffee (only two choices of tea, extremely poor considering this restaurant is located at the heart of London), a £5 charge for a simple glass of water, plus services charges, and we ended up with a bill of about is £70 each without even alcohol. On top of that the singers left a tipping jar on the piano. Normally, I would’ve been happy to encourage them, since the performances were amazing, but at a certain point it felt like I was constantly being asked for more and more money throughout the evening. My suggestion would be: I’d personally prefer a starting price maybe a little higher, but that includes a decent evening package: 3 course meal, tea/coffee/water included.
Wow ! It is such a privilege to have opera singers performing in such an intimate environment. It’s like being invited to an after party. Oh - and you get great food too. If you think you don’t like opera then think again. Bel Canto is a fabulous unforgettable evening !!
Bel Canto delivered again😀. Tasteful food, and 5 fantastic artists in a brilliant combination. If you enjoy this combination, this is the place to bring your friends for an evening you will never forget. We will be back👏. Thanks again to the artists.
The opera arias were awesome, they were really good. And the selection of the arias was made to entertain even the novice opera fans, they were mostly the most famous arias. I would definitely go there again for a special occasion. However, the price should have included a drink and a dessert. In a classy place that I listen to the arias and paying a lot of money, I would expect it a 3 course meal or at least a drink. I guess the restaurant is not including this just to make a couple of extra pounds. However, by doing so, it is reducing the class of the restaurant. My suggestion would be making it £50 and including drink+dessert.
Really enjoy hearing the singers and the meal was good overall. May be helpful for you to advertise as a cultural experience and offer as packages to the many travel companies that do “theatre and cultural” tours etc... perhaps a midweek event. Bios of the singers/ entertainers as well. Always nice to know-similar to a theatre program. Doesn’t have to be excessive. Simple write up on each table. Singers and songs chosen? Advertising in other theatre programs...have at local events staff singing and handing out info on your unique establishment.
