Local on Lincoln Road

Great food any night and every time you go. The Family feel in this restaurant makes it romantic by itself but the food, prices and ambience make it a favorite. Look into the specials, Wines Monday nights half price etc.

We went there to have a late lunch and it was perfect. The drinks (with and without alcohol), the crab linguine and salmon pasta, and dessert. And the price was better than we imagine. Very good. The waitress was very courteous.

We walked in and walked right back out. Filthy place, bathroom doors at the upper level were left swinging open. There were many dirty drink glasses piled up at the bar. The bar itself was dirty and gross and everyone was just standing around like it was ok. I will NEVER eat there.

Balan's is a wonderful spot for a weekend brunch on Miami Beach. It sits on Lincoln Rd and has great scope for watching passers by while eating. Even on the hottest day, the large umbrellas keep it cool outdoors and is well ventilated for indoor air conditioned comfort as well. I recommend this spot to visitors and locals of Miami... More

inside is nice and clean comfortable and very nice bar outside is nice but they need to improve a little on chairs and tables, even when for sure they have exterior material but looks like they need to change it snacks and cocktails for happy hour are very good and reasonable prices

We ate here for Brunch Sunday morning and it was fabulous. I had the Eggs Benedict with Crab Cakes. It was only $16 and they gave you two crab cakes and hash browns with it. It was definitely the best meal while we were there.
