Located near Hyde Park, this opera-themed restaurant with its classic French cuisine and divine wine, offers an exceptional fine dining experience. Highly skilled, singing waiters provide a unique table service; from Wednesday to Saturdays the restaurant serves up world-class operatic entertainment.
Claret coloured drapes and walls, a wooden bar and floor provide a sense of warmth and intimacy to this basement restaurant. Begin your evening with a glass of 2004 Dom Perignon or an aperitif with a selection of mixed olives and freshly toasted bread before moving on to traditionally prepared duck Foie Gras, Opera salad or tartar.
For your main course, try the Corn-Fed Chicken, Char-Grilled Salmon fillet or Pork Cheek served with caramelised carrots, crushed potatoes and the all important red wine jus. For vegetarians, a platter of seasonal vegetables comes with potatoes and mixed herbs, melted buffalo mozzarella, pesto sauce and a drizzle of truffle oil.
Kay & Co recommends the Panna Cotta for a light creamy dessert or the indulgent hot chocolate fondant served with salted caramel ice cream if you’re venturing to the dark side of all things sweet! For something tangy and refreshingly different, try the Strawberry Soup - strawberries in their own juices, serviced with a raspberry sorbet, a biscuit flavoured with thyme and a flourish of basil pesto. End your gastronomic journey with a selection of cheeses (served with chutney) and dessert wine or port.
The ‘Opera Packages’ include a memorable combination of exceptional singing, food and drink and if you’d like updates on Bel Canto offers, events and news join their Opera Diners Club. This Operatic establishment also hires their talented artists for private and corporate occasions; a sure way to create an impression and keep your guests entertained.
