From Our Editors

The Balcon London brings the timeless charm of French cuisine to the West End. The Michelin-listed restaurant is situated on Pall Mall, minutes from Charing Cross, Piccadilly Circus and St. James’s Park. The kitchen prepares continental and English breakfasts, Gallic steaks, roasted fish fillets and a host of vegetarian dishes, all crafted using local and organic ingredients where possible. The art deco inspired dining area features chandeliers, high ceilings and a distinctive winding staircase. The Charcuterie Bar offers platters of fine French and Welsh produce while the St James Bar is styled after a 1920s Parisian apartment. Guests can enjoy afternoon tea in the Rose Lounge or perhaps book a private dining experience for up to 16 guests. A harpist plays in the Rose Lounge from 3-6pm every day.

Lovely hotel, the staff were really friendly and they were happy for us to go in for our afternoon tea earlier than we had booked. The afternoon tea was great value for money. Would go again. The rose room looked nice although we didn't use it, but felt if there was only a couple of you in there it would lack atmosphere.

Its a fantastic venue. The staff were exceptional. It was great value for money. We have told friends and family about it, and will definitely be going back there soon ourselves. The bar area and the Rose Lounge look great too.

We had a "meh" experience with afternoon tea, would have been a 2 star if not for one member of staff who tried to help! Location and ambience is great, and may be we were just unlucky but have had better experiences elsewhere - gutted

We reserved an afternoon tea at The Balcon for a birthday. The whole experience was fantastic. We got 4 finger sandwiches (very tasty), 3 scones, absolutely delicious, lemon curd, clotted cream, jam and a smoothie. The two French patisserie were superb. The staff were very friendly and professional. To our surprise, as we mentioned that it was for a birthday, they brought out a lovely platter of cakes with coulis. We couldnt eat all and they gave us a box to take home the leftovers. I was expecting to pay a service charge but we didnt. I would recommend using Groupon to book the Balcon as you wont be disappointed.

We were 6 people using 3 vouchers at lunch time. By the end, we couldn't finish all the desserts. But it was very delicious and the staff were courteous and friendly.
