Good local spot.

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.

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.

I love colombian food. While I realize that no food ever measures up to your mom's cooking, this place's fare is a close comparison. Wonderful empanadas, very good rice and beans and of course, the ajiaco never disappoints. This place is a very casual venue where you can mingle with the locals over a cold cerveza or a glass of...

I come for the breakfasts. Best coffee in town, make sure they put the milk in the milkshake machine to get it nice and frothy first. I order the eggs, peppers and onions with a corn cake with cheese. It is an amazing breakfast. Sometimes I just order the pan de bono which is AMAZING!!!! The servers are very attentive,... More

Balcon De las Americas in Margate is my go to place when I feel like having an amazing well-prepared and tasty latin meal. I especially love the milanesa chicken with rice and beans and my husband loves the bandeja Paisa which is out of this world!! They also make fresh fruit juices and smoothies ( I LOVE their soursop smoothie!)... More

Nice casual restaurant offering fresh food at a reasonable price. Their conch soup was delicious and their cutlets are plentiful and tasty! Good place to come and relax and enjoy!

Food is good when received. It can be an Monday afternoon or mid evening Friday night and service is still extremely slow. I've been to all 4 - best one is in Boca. Fried pork has flavor and cut in pieces, errors made corrected, staff amicable. Two miles north and its better. TRUST ME.
