Bel Canto Restaurant combines French fine dining with the splendour of the opera. Performing alongside a talented pianist, the team of flamboyant and lively waiting staff are professionally trained opera singers.

Next to stunning Hyde Park, Bel Canto restaurant offers an elegantly decorated dining room, and decadent dishes. To start, there’s classic foie gras with brioche and fig chutney, or the shallots tatin covered with feta cheese. Main courses at Bel Canto Lancaster Gate offer an array of rich flavours, like wild mushroom risotto with shaved parmesan, or succulent, prune-stuffed chicken wrapped in pancetta.

Bel Canto’s wine list offers a well-chosen variety, from light and crisp ‘soprano’ whites, to heavier, ‘bariton’ reds. The desserts at Bel Canto London are great for a sweet tooth, with melting chocolate fondant, or the tangy apple tart with blackcurrant sorbet.

Within an impressive building just 2 minutes’ walk from Lancaster Gate Tube Station, Bel Canto Restaurant offers sumptuous French cuisine and a vibrant taste of the opera.

    Seated near the piano, we had the best opportunity to enjoy the playing of the pianist and the opera performances, both of which were very good. The food was of a good standard, the wine was good but expensive for what it was. The evening was a well constructed combination of music with a meal which was good but not outstanding but which, together, made for a happy, rewarding and memorable evening. One very enjoyable aspect was the conversations we were able to have with the performers, who discussed their training, achievements and ambitions. We arrived at 7.00 and stayed for the whole evening until 11.00 and went home with this evening of music running round our mind for the whole journey. An unusual but very enjoyable evening.

    Very enjoyable evening, excellent singers and superb food. However drink prices expensive and servicecharge, 12.5%, too high.
    1 bottle of wine plus the service charge came to nearly £100! This would put me off going again.
    Otherwise a great experience. Thank you Bel Canto!
