Truly amazing experience. Of course it's not cheap at £187 per seat in the stalls and £138 for lunch (including 2 glasses of Champagne) but sometimes you just have to do these things. The sets at ROH are so realistic, the shopping arcades, cafe and...More

Dinner at the Balconies Restaurant was superb. First rate service (it's great that you can make a request of anyone passing by and know it will be attended to promptly), delicious food, a decent (if rather pricey) wine list, and a lovely environment. OK, so...More

Went to see Don Guovanni. Gorgeous! The atmosphere is friendly. Seat in the amphitheatre not that bad. We could actually stand 3hours of sitting which could be a nightmare in some places! Beautiful bar and restaurant with lots of light coming through the glass ceiling....More

I expected it to be boring and loud, however I couldn't have been further from the truth! It was so entertaining, funny and a truly incredible experience. Although the ampitheatre was steep and I couldn't have watched it without subtitles, it was brilliant!

First visit to the ROH and was not disappointed! Sets, costumes, music and ballet corp were all excellent! Service at the bar was a bit hectic during intermissions; by the time you were served, you had to quickly finish beverages/food before returning to seats.

I sat stalls circle right A90 for Carmen and although not central, it was an excellent, clear view. Got fantastic advice from the box office, so I recommend booking through them for expert help. Enjoy!
