I booked this restaurant to celebrate our 30th. wedding anniversary as my wife has always wanted to go to the opera - I'm not that keen and thought this would be a good compromise. I booked through buyagift.com and got a good deal, which included a 2-course meal with a glass of prosecco each. Every 15 minutes the waiters/waitresses burst... More

We visited Bel Canto on a Friday evening early September with a Groupon voucher which cost £49 (April 15 price) For this we received a Kir Royal cocktail upon arrival, a two course meal plus a glass of prosecco for the toast. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the live opera brilliant! It was my husband's birthday which... More

Our 5th visit, a fabulous evening of great food and even better entertainment. Every time we go we'd get mostly different singers, and that's what makes it special, the diversity of styles. Mr Ivanov (the manager) always makes it very special for us and we do plan to return for visit number 6. Thank you all for a fabulous evening.

You do not have to be an Opera lover to enjoy and evening at the Bel Canto. Not only is the food good and the surroundings very French but the way the waiters bust into song for short periods makes the whole evening a great experience.

You just can't help but smile and soak up the ambience. I've been twice this year and both occasions have been 'magic'. Thanks Bel Canto! Ps. You don't have to be an opera 'goer' to enjoy this...
