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.

    It was a very enjoyable evening , waiters & waitresses were helpful & friendly. Disappointed that they did not have 'Pimms'.

    The evening was a really lovely experience.

    My third excellent evening at Bel Canto with overseas visitors in the last three years and as always a fun evening. The singing waiters and waitresses were brilliant and extremely friendly. Highly recommended for a different meal out.

    I loved the moody ambience of the basement setting. The beetroot and goats cheese starter was excellent. The salmon was also well presented. The best thing was the entertainment. Singing waiting team meandering amongst the diners was awesome! Definitely will be going back.

    Absolutely amazing! What a gem in the middle of Paddington. Would suggest you book one of the early tables, as it is yours for the evening so you can stay until the end and hear all the wonderful music. The ambience is lovely, with costumes and posters from opera and the curtains giving a stage feel. The singers were outstanding. The food was perfect. The wine and other drinks were amazing. The serving staff (non-singers as well) were impeccable. My best friend and I had just the most wonderful evening and would absolutely go back the next time we are in London.

    Booked this as a meal to celebrate our son's 29th. Turned out to be a good meal and a great experience. Drawn from some 60 performers, the artists performing on our night were excellent. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Want to try something a little different? Give Bel Canto a try. I'm sure you won't be disappointed
