“Backstage tour !”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We went for a backstage tour of The Royal Opera House .......you have to book this in advance as they are only on certain days and for a limited amount of people.
The tour took us to see the main auditorium , the lighting dept and the ballet training and rest area amongst other parts.
It was interesting and informative .........well worth a visit !

“Puccini Manon Lescaut”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Superb venue for a night at the Opera. Great food in the Amphitheatre Restaurant.We were very well looked after once again. The service is very efficient. The stage itself is amazing as is the theatre. If you are visiting London & love the Opera then this is a must!

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Not really an opera fan but happy to have visited and seen a performance live.
The main restaurant is very good. Friendly helpful staff .
Food excellent.A good selection of plain food well cooked and presented. Lamb with fresh veg and new potatoes superb. Vegitarian in the party spoke highly ofthe mushroom risotto.The champagne starter recommended.The wine list was comprehensive.
Expensive but for the location,Central London, and the iconic venue it was good value for money

Very rarely disappointed in the productions, however I have been disappointed with the food in the Crush Bar (Conservatory). The main restaurant however was fantastic.

“Saw 2 productions, one excellent, one bad”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We saw a production of Lady Macbeth of Minsk that was just excellent. The costumes, set, performances, lighting, and everything else was spot on. Then we saw a production of Don Juan that was boring and offensive. But the venue is nice. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable. I recommend that you read a few reviews before you go.
