The food was good. It really depends on taste. I expected it to be a little more spicy, but it was not. Like a little kick to my food. Something that makes me say Wow. However, the servers and rest of the staff was very nice and friendly.

Separate building, tropical landscape with patio; looks more like it should be on hwy. #2 in Puerto Rico. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. The waitresses all tall and beautiful, in white tops, and pants with long legs. The inside has tables, air conditioning, a great menu and a picture of a house with a beautiful balcony. Susan & I...

In this place it seems that the customer is subject to eat whatever the waitress want to serve it instead of you making your own selection from the menu. They have sancocho with comes with the meat and yuca, potato and all the other good stuf... More

I have been eating at "El Balcon De Las Americas" for the past 15 years at this location and their other family owned locations. I usually eat there with my family at least once a week or every other week. The food and service is excellent I recommend that you try the Bandeja Paisa or the whole fried snapper. Empanadas...

Lively place at night. Food is acceptable. Live band may play on weekends. Food may be greasy. Located on the main street, though it is part of the shopping plaza. Better food found at Tumi Peruvian restaurant.

Food has good flavor. Lots of seating available indoors or out. Different selections to pick from on the menu. Service can be a little slow at times. I would come back.
