Bel Canto restaurant in Paris brings you a grand helping of lyric opera with your meal. Decorated in traditional red and gold with the air of a 19th century opera house, a grand piano in pride of place, opera posters and mannequins sporting costumes from the Paris Opera, Bel Canto is one restaurant where the world really is a stage. Students of the world-famous Paris Conservatory – who are also the waiters -- burst into song several times an evening, performing the arias you adore from Puccini, Verdi, Mozart and more. The three-course meal changes seasonally. The wine list is almost entirely Italian, lapsing into French only among the grand crus. Fabulous location on the Seine near the Hotel de Ville.
