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.

Awesome place! I bring ALL my family and guests from as far away as Manila, Philippines there. I also arranged our office Christmas party there and everyone loved it. My son loves the Bandeja Paisa, my hubby the chuleta calena and for me, the fried snapper works! GO!

We have been going to El Balcon for years. The food is excellent especially the carne asada. The service is a bit impersonal however the ambience is great if you like Karaoke and the Latin scene.

The food at El Balcon is very fresh and most of it is tasty. Sadly, the service is very slow. We were a group of 6, everyone was served at a different time. The pork chop was truly delicious, the white rice was ... white rice, nothing special. The meal was listed on the menu with red beans. When the... More

You can try this for sure. Their choices of fried food is not huge, but is typical. For lunch choices are very nice and taste is definitively close to Colombian food, you will enjoy it. You can order salads, soups, meats and some fast food. It is a good value for the money as definitively there prices are good. Plenty... More
