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.

    When I booked a table I requested a nice table as it was a very special celebration for us and we were not disappointed. My husband and I were seated at an amazing table on the balcony and received an additional treat at the end to mark it. We had such a wonderful night because the food was incredible and the service from every team member was fantastic. The care, enthusiasm and desire to make it a special night for us was deeply appreciated.

    Lovely staff, lovely restaurant

    Excellent food although as someone on a dairy free diet I would expect more offerings from trained chefs than sorbet or fruit salad

    Excellent. Great French ambience with friendly and most efficient service. The food was delicious and the champagne flowing. It was not our first visit. We will continue to go.

    This was a delightful experience for the five of us who had lunch here this week. Both in terms of quality of food and service, which were to a high standard.
