Balthazar London


The original Balthazar opened in downtown New York's Spring Street in 1997. Balthazar London is situated in the heart of Covent Garden, just across from the Royal Opera House. Housed in the old Theatre Museum, Balthazar shares The Flower Cellars building with The London Film Museum. (The permanent flower market was originally built for the Covent Garden flower sellers in 1870 and this space was used for storage.)

Founder Keith McNally has endeavoured to remain as true to the New York original as possible, where bistro food, good wine and friendly service are the order of the day. Balthazar London has the egalitarian appeal of the brasserie – something for everyone all day long: breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, as well as weekend brunch.

The plan was to come here for a late Saturday Brunch and get some eggs. We arrived to find a queue but had looking booked, so we went straight through. After we walked in and were seated I managed to glimpse so amazing dishes which made me think twice about the original plan. I ended up going for the burger. Cooked to preference, with a great homemade sauce and bun. It also came swimming in a...more

grilled langoustines (yabbies) with green tomato salsa, chives and aromatic oil served with Jacob's Creek Reserve Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2013 - a very light white wine that makes it a great companion to shellfish and white meat seafood - I think I just came up with the term, white meat seafood. I am thinking sea bream, bass, monkfish and halibut. Probably mackarel and tuna would be too...more

Balthazar is so difficult to book for dinner and brave it by trying to get a table for walk-in. We ended up waiting ovee two hours for a table! So i do recommend to get a table booking.

I knew coming to London I had to try Balthazar's. I wasn't able to make it to the one in NYC, so why not? We made a reservation for 8pm and when we got there it was packed! We ended up waiting for about an extra 20 minutes for our table. The restaurant kept apologizing for the wait and were kind enough to offer a bottle of champagne while we waited for our table to clear out(bonus!). I was...more
