The setting is very nice and tropical. Fans help blow the Mosquitos away in outdoor seating. Menu is varied, with Thai, Malay, Chinese, and other Asian dishes. The curries are excellent. Service is attentive, and prices are reasonable.

Another trip to Punta Cana, another great dinner at Balicana! Just the ambiance alone is worth a visit – the soft lighting, the pool in the background (and they float tealights in the water after dark) …. It’s such a nice place! The food is always great too. Between our group of 4, we ordered 2 of the ‘combo’ appetizers,... More

What do I mean by it all? ambiance, attentive staff, and the most excellent food you could wish for. They even have a pool! Prices are excellent for the quality and portions of the food. The only thing I dislike about Balicana is that it is over 190 kms from me. If you visit Bavaro, you HAVE to pay them... More

I went to this restaurant on a package deal with a local spa. I received a massage and lunch for $70. The food was REALLY good, and I was skeptical because it was Thai, and hello, i'm in the DR! But for lunch they had an option where you could choose your base (rice, fried rice, noodles), your meat (chicken,... More

I've been to Balicana at least 10 times. The food (Asian inspired) is awesome and well priced! We always get the fried veggies and spring rolls for an appetizer. My favorite main dish is the sweet and spicy chicken (they do it with pork as well). My husband swears by the Pad Thai chicken. We had 2 appetizers, 2 meals,... More

For years I have been hearing about Balicana, I have vacation property here and my friends could not believe I had not tried it out, considering it is a short distance from my condo. Four of us went out, we had six spring roll appetizers, we each had a cocktail, bottled water and then the main courses for 2800 pesos.... More

My boyfriend and I checked out this place and we were presently surprised! There is no signage, so we had to ask the guard where the restaurant was. There was an abundance of parking and the ambience next to the pool is great! The drinks were great, food was delicious, and service was awesome! It is a great restaurant to... More

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
