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.

    The restaurant's interior design was lovely and so was the atmosphere.

    Best dish was the 3 variety of scones: chocolate, plain and raisin with clotted cream, lemon curd and rose strawberry jam.

    Please note that this was not unlimited afternoon tea which was strange as most London afternoon teas (offers or no offers) give an unlimited supply.
