Pure dining splendour is showcased with effortless chic at The Balcon. Combining traditional elegance with contemporary flair, this blend of London and Parisian grand brasserie boasts a champagne balcony and restaurant.

Fabulous blends of styles complement one another beautifully at The Balcon London. Dual spiral staircases make up the striking champagne balcony, which offers a select range of bottles that include Dom Perignon. Sweeping arches and crisp whites are set off by dark stained wood and leather furnishings.

The Balcon menu is a diverse blend of the finest traditional dishes given premium contemporary additions.

Also featuring an accomplished wine list and selection of spirits, The Balcon in St James's is just a 5-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    Good place for dinner with friends. Nice atmosphere, attentive and friendly service, good value deal and excellent food with notably generous portions. We particularly enjoyed the duck and all three desserts (creme brulee, chocolate souffle and apple tart). No complaints at all and would definitely return.

    Another excellent evening at the Balcon, this is our 4th time to dine here. The food is consistently good, we went on the 3 course offer with a glass of champagne and coffee, excellent choice unlike some menus. The staff are lovely and the ambience is good. We shall return!
