My new wife and I shared an intimate, quite dinner at this secluded restaurant. Very reasonably priced. It is not a place that is packed out and the atmosphere here was romantic and perfect for our dinner. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. They serve cuisine from Asia and Thia and have other meals as well. A must... More

Brilliant evening. We heard rumours that this was a great place so all trouped in. My veg green curry was fragrant and the table looked so interesting with all the colours. No one was disappointed. It got very busy by 9.30 so don't leave it too late. Good service, real taste. Don't miss a night here.

Here’s a tip for this restaurant: don’t go on your last night in town – there is so much food that you *will* have leftovers! We over-ordered and got appetizers but the entrees were plenty big enough that we didn’t need to get the apps. Everything was tasty and the atmosphere is great, a quiet little place tucked in the...

Excellent Thai food just had to try it as it's my big thing. Thai green curry can be vastly different and this was delicious. Served quickly and seated around the pool, it was a nice evening spent with friendly people.

My sister and I visited Balicana last night for dinner. When we arrived around 7:30 we were only the second table, but by the time we left around 9pm the restaurant was almost full. We had a beautiful spot by the pool. The food here is delicious and comes out fairly quick. Our waiter, whose name I unfortunately don't know,... More

I used to visit Balicana with my wife twice at month, I can confirm their food and services area tremendous. The prices are liable and you get into a very quiet environment.

First night in Bavaro we checked out Balicana. We were the only patrons at the time and enjoyed having the place by the pool to ourselves. Staff was extremely friendly. Food came out fast and was excellent. They can make all of their dishes vegetarian, and the green curry with tofu was quite good. Not exactly true Thai style food,... More

Excellent thai food with great service and great ambiance. Very good desserts and very cold beers. We sat right next to the pool by the moon light.

The atmosphere here is very nice. The food is good and the staff is very honest too!!! I left my credit card there on a Saturday night. They were closed Sunday. Monday I returned and my card was waiting. It doesn't get better than that.

Once we found the place it was great. You can't park right by it. It is right by a pool and a spa with massage tables nearby. There was also a little playground for my 3 year old so that was enough to make it a good place:) We had good drinks and the food was quality. The pad thai... More
