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.

Staff lovely. Starter lovely. Main was not great as I had a plate full of lamb fat rather than meat. If I was asked how my main was I would have told them. Desert was late but the staff gave us an extra pudding to compensate. Nice gesture but just too much pudding in the end

Visited 'Balcon' with friends for lunch on the 3 course with champagne offer, very warm atmosphere with excellent staff , this was our second visit and although very good value our mains of whole plaice fillet and slow cooked lamb were both dry, and then the kitchen ran out of souffle when we came to order dessert and then waited a full 20 mins for alternatives to arrive, so left us a little disappointed .

Good service and excellent food, an improvement on when I was last here four years ago and now I can thoroughly recommend it. Sadly no five star Tokai assu available despite being on the wine list.

Lovely restaurant decor and a warm welcome. Foie gras was fine and elevated by the gooseberry jellies. Belly pork was even better, with plenty of jus ( which is often on the inadequate side in fine dining). I'm not really a pudding person but that was the best course of all.

Very nice restaurant. Beautiful building and nicely decorated. The food was excellent. I really enjoyed the tartare steak and the pork belly dish. Desserts were to die for.
