We opted to pre book from the menu and this worked really well for us as we had a relaxed meal before the show. You are able to choose courses before the and in the interval. This works well if you do starter and main before the show as the interval is 25 mins. Food was to die for, service... More

Very occasional visitors to ROH we again ate at The Amphitheatre Restaurant and this proved even better on this occasion given the length of Die Meistersinger. The food was very good but the star of the evening was the service in general and our waiter in particular. It felt (and appeared) that nothing was too much trouble with the service... More

I was sceptical about having a three course meal split over intervals at the ROH but they are very efficient and do it really well. What is more, the food is actually very good and the waitresses are very committed to ensuring everyone gets the most out of the evening.

This is a busy place, and serves drinks and snacks before curtain up and during intervals of performances. Staff are personable and keen. Not cheap but good quality

We went to see Meistersingers from Nuremberg yesterday and hoped to eat in the Crush Bar which turned out to be completely full. We wandered up to the Amphitheatre and found a table for two. My wife had Sea Bass and I had Steak both of which were excellent as were the vegetables. We had fruit wine and coffee and... More

This place is a great way to eat before and in the intervals of the opera performance at the Royal Opera House. You order your meal in advance and arrive in good time, some one and half hours before the start. You can choose when you eat the minimum two courses you have ordered. Great choice of dishes and drinks.... More

Flawless service by a wonderful French waiter, his name was "Maurice" if I remember correctly. He was charming and made our night so special. Can't wait to go back!
