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.

    Fabulous place. The staff were friendly and helpful, the decor stunning and the food delicious. The cocktails, however, stole the show. We didn't want them to end!

    Lovely lunch in elegant surroundings and close to the theatres,
    Delicious three course meal accompanied by lovely bread. Bread may only be an accompaniment but if the same quality is applied, it says it all.

    Good food, good service and a wonderful ambiance overall. This was our 5th visit to the Balcon and we have not been disappointed at any time.

    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
