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.

    Very enjoyable lunch, in most pleasant surroundings, great attentive service, and value for money.

  • ((((( 17 July 2017 by Audrey from London

    Beautifully presented dishes (I was very smitten with my dessert, a delicious mousse with chocolate "leaf"), delicious sauces and everything just a little different. Very pleasant staff, attentive but never intrusive. The restaurant is delightful, luxurious but in a very dignified way. Nothing I (or the friend I was with) would have wished to be differnet

    Good food and lovely surroundings

    Hi. It was my wife's Birthday' and we booked the free pouring Champange Tea Service. I most say that I expected a little bit more from the Sandwich choice' although they tasted lovely
    I think that the 3 Sandwiches each were not sufficient' as we were expecting a little more from the Tea Experience. The Sandwiches could have been slightly more due to the fact that we were have Champange' and it was quite a leisurely amount of time spent at the Balcon.
