Situated in the heart of Theatreland, just off the Covent Garden plaza, Balthazar is perfect for both pre and post theatre dining. They offer a range of French inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as delicate pastries, artisan breads and cakes that are made in-house in their Boulangerie next door. Drinks range from draught beers and glasses of wine to cocktails, liqueurs and champagne.

The decor has a classy but ambient touch, though the food prices aren't extortionate and the service is exceptional. For parties and other special occasions, you can book a private dining experience in their first floor dining room for up to 60 guests for a seated dinner or 80 guests for standing receptions. Here, diners can have their specific needs catered for. If you're looking for something a little different, somewhere to chat before or after a night at the theatre, then Balthazar is the place to be.

Had a salted caramel peanut butter tartlet from the bakery. Really, really tasty, I ended up buying some as birthday presents! Friendly staff, tasty food, good location. Recommended. Macaroons good too.
