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 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.

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.

I visited the one located in Sunrise and paid with my Visa from Banco de Bogota. They did not accepted the card. Says due to the expiration day. The explanation I received is that their system is limited.

The food is good but it's not my favorite. I like it when they have karaoke night and the music is contagious.
