With chic European café style and a buzzing bohemian ambience, Balans Soho Society Seven Dials Café serves up an eclectic all-day menu of gourmet international dishes, popular brunches, and all kinds of signature cocktails.

Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and morale boosting cocktails, the Balans Soho Society menu reflects the restaurant’s libertine outlook. Savour the pulled pork wrap with bourbon-flamed barbecue sauce and triple-cooked chips, Cornish crab linguine with chilli, or the Infamous Balans Burger, packed with Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, dill pickle and red onion. Brunches here are hugely popular, with classic recipes like eggs Benedict sitting alongside more contemporary options, like Cornish crab with pink grapefruit, squid ink crackers, avocado purée, and wood sorrel.

The plush interior at Balans Soho Society in Covent Garden provides the perfect spot to sample something indulgent from the eclectic cocktail list. Alongside the fine wine selection at the bar, there are a great selection of wonderfully inventive signature cocktails.

A stylish, bustling eatery in one of London's most vibrant areas, Balans Soho Society Seven Dials Café is a 3-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Really interesting veggie starter with tofu and tasted delicious, veggie mains also good and the curlingly sweet little donuts for pud. Very nice food, great waiting staff and good atmosphere, also right opposite the theatre.

    We ate hear after a theatre matinee on Saturday. The service was attentive and the menu great for a quick dinner. The adults had burgers which were large and good. Our children had the all day brunch and fish & chips. The chunky chips were a bit too chunky and under cooked, but otherwise the food was good. Drinks menu was extensive, but would be good to have a non-craft lager on the menu. Note there is no specific children's menu. Overall, enjoyed our experience.

    Service good, attentive and friendly.
    Food tasty, well prepared.
    A bit quiet, maybe we ate early and it was Sunday?

    Great atmosphere but slow and non-attentive waitress. Majority of food was delicious but we got no table bread, halloumi fish cakes were very disappointing and only the size of a starter and when we ordered quick sides to bulk it up, they didnt arrive for 30 minutes until meals were finished. We also had half of our finished plates cleared and 20 mins before a different waiter came to clear the rest.

    Amazing huge burgers and a tasty chicken risotto dish all efficiently served by friendly staff
    Take care when booking as I had booked the nearby cafe but we showed up at the restaurant instead not realising both were options.However the staff still found us a table .
    If you’re easily offended by provocative pictures its maybe not for you -I used my napkin to hide the naked man on my table!
