Closed down

The Balcony is presently closed. Not exactly sure why. The outside canopy has been removed and the front of the place is boarded up. No idea when they might reopen if at all. Was always a lively place and there always were girls trying to make a living mostly for the late crowd.

Went here a few times to meet friends. The food was really good value, 24 hours, could get a bit seedy, and constant prostitutes looking for business, didn't bother me, but think it would upset a lot of people - I noticed though that they would go away if you just said no. 2 guys miming to records, well I...

Open 24 hours, the drinks are average price, the food they serve is excellent and a very good price. We chose the filet mignon, which you cook for yourself on a hot plate brought to your table, 5 large steaks with chips and rice, and the price worked out £12 in Sterling, fantastic. Warning, any male not accompanied by a... More

Visited this bar a few times and always received large portions of excellent food. Prices were very reasonable, usuallly went in the afternoon or early evening, but noticed that the later it got, there would be many prostitutes about.

We dropped in for a few beers and to catch some sports on TV. It was very busy, lively and noisy. We were able to watch the hockey game and to people watch. With respect to food, we tried one of their pizzas and it was nothing to write home about.

This bar is open 365 days a year and 24 hours a day. You therefore know the picture! If you want a burger for about $6 US then you will get it. It won't win any 'burger of the year award' but it will be freshly cooked and it will be substantial. Local drinks can be on the 'expensive' side... More

We eat here two times. First time a burger, it was nothing special. Second time a sandwich with french fries. The fries were not cooked long enough. The sandwich was nothing special.

If you are looking to watch a particular match that you must see then this is a busy bar that will accommodate you. (Estonian v England) was my game. Bottled beer expensive, food was average. I was there during the day and I can only imagine what it would be like at 3am.... lively I'd expect. Working girls were mingling... More

We had lunch there. We ordered burritos and waited for an hour for our food. We inquired twice on what happened to our food before we got finally served. The food was alright when finally delivered but I was simply too hungry and annoyed to enjoy fully. Our order must have gone missing. To be fair the waitress did apologised... More

My boyfriend and I were just looking for a place to eat along Copacabana and found this place across the street. They have lots of specials for great prices. For lunch we had fillet mignon, which they brought a hot-plate to our table so we could cook it to how we wanted, garlic mashed potatoes and salad...it was WONDERFUL. They... More
