Celebrate Joyce DiDonato’s appearance in Handel’s masterpiece with a table in Balconies restaurant, where stunning seafood options await. Enjoy classic fish soup with rouille, or a contemporary salad of Dorset crab with chicory and apple, before moving onto lemon sole grenobloise or sea bass with spiced tomato salad. Prefer meat? You’ll love our fillet of beef with wild mushrooms, jerusalem artichokes and Madeira, while truffled celeriac tarte fine is sure to thrill vegetarians.
If you feel a classic Mozart opera demands a classic Covent Garden setting, join us in the Crush Room. There you’ll find traditional specialities such as Oscietra caviar with blinis, and smoked salmon with all the trimmings. We’ll also be celebrating autumn’s arrival with mushroom and Madeira soup, elegant game terrine with onion marmalade, and a heavenly blackberry and sloe gin trifle. Prefer something richer to finish? How about Frangelico and dark chocolate tart.
Have you visited the glamorous new Piazza Terrace Bar and Restaurant yet? It’s the perfect way to toast the return of Kenneth Macmillan’s romantic ballet, with a sensuous menu of light Italian dishes. Revel in a plate of creamy burrata cheese with artichoke and marinated olives, or the zingy freshness of chargrilled squid with chilli and rocket. Can’t resist a pudding? We have an elegant panna cotta with honey roast figs and the devilish pick-me-up tiramisu.
A table in the Piazza Terrace Bar and Restaurant offers a wonderful way to dine around the performance, with a sumptuous menu of Italian nibbles, antipasto, fresh homemade pasta and hearty mains. Seasonal produce stars in dishes such as Speck Trentino with radicchio and aged balsamic vinegar, and wild mushroom and Gorgonzola tortellini. Feeling the chill? Enjoy rich porchetta with lentils and salsa rossa then finish with pear and almond tart or our artisan cheese selection.
Balconies restaurant is the place to enjoy elegant dining beneath the iconic ironwork of the Paul Hamlyn Hall. For Don Pasquale the menu sings with fine fresh produce, including fennel, salsify, beetroot and wild mushrooms. Don’t miss stuffed roast quail with choucroute, or the plum and almond pavlova. If the downstairs Champagne Bar is more to your taste, try silky celeriac soup with hazelnuts or butternut squash with kale and tahini dressing.
The flexible menu of our relaxed Piazza Terrace is a great way to make the most of this mixed programme. Nibble on arancini, focaccia and olives while pondering the wide choice of dishes glistening with authentic Italian ingredients. Gorgeous pumpkin and sage tortelloni appear alongside a vegan radicchio and red wine risotto. Game lovers can enjoy roast pheasant while fans of fish should look to the sea bass baked in a bag with porcini and vermouth.
