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.

    Excellent food for both of us for all three coursees - thoughtfully prepared and presented, Very enjoyable flavours. Complimentary glass of prosecco was generous and quality dry chilled.

    Service was first class, from a friendly and professional team, including Alison the Manager, who went out of her way arranging for the inappropriate disco-thump loop soundtrack (not especially elegant or lunchtime-friendly) to be turned down. Interesting that the overall management doesn't give staff the scope to choose suitable ambient background music, but impose an inaccessible electro-loop tape that runs for 20 hours!

    I booked a 3 course dinner with champagne from the 'offer' meals and was charged for desert (8GBP) which should have been included!

    As a frequent visitor to Le Balcon I am pleased to report that it maintains its' high standards. The Menu deal gave good choice - I had "sardines" which appeared as a single boned. grilled sardine on sourdough toast plus some grilled pepper and a few leaves - cooking and portion size perfect for me. The "bubbles" with the deal were prosecco (oh, not again and so un-French), Very charming service from young French waiters and waitresses. Main was Roast chicken on a bed of sweet potato. Half a Poussin very freshly roasted with sweet potato flavoured with thyme and sage to take the edge of the sweetness. Very successful (my companion usually hates sweet potato but liked this). Desserts are their forte. Rhubarb tarte tatin was indeed "tart" but balanced by vanilla ice cream and my Macaron with honey ice-cream and honeycomb (like a crunchie bar) was very professional, beautifully presented as an upright wheel - slightly less crisp than ideal.
    The surroundings are art deco and the atmosphere restful (very faint music). Perfect after a visit to the Galleries in Trafalgar square.

    We had a very good dinner at the Balcon: very nice décor, good service and good food. However, the wine is very expensive which meant that, instead of ordering two bottles as we would normally have done, we limited ourselves to only one. Something for the managers to rethink?
