We went to this restaurant today after reading a number of good reviews that indicated a good choice of dishes on the menu, including the menu of the day. We were very disappointed in the choice of dishes on the menu of the day as two out of the three mains the dishes were English (sausages and mash and steak... More

This restaurant has an excellent chef, who is a past master at flavour, sauces, gravies etc. Every item on their menu is good, you do not know which one to pick. But the steak is beautifully cooked, tender and moist, yumm. Highly recommended. Also they have a lunchtime menu for 10 euros, three courses. It is excellent value. Front of... More

We had an excellent value lunch at 10 euros each for 3 courses. Great food imaginatively cooked and served, I cannot imagine a more enjoyable lunch at this price. the service is attentive and friendly. The position of the restaurant is beside the road but there are views over the valley from some tables.

We have been to the Balcon quite a few times over the years but over the last year they have redeveloped themselves. The menu is perfect and the hospitality first class. I agree with other comments that value for money, the lunchtime menu is brilliant value and the portions are perfect. Very clean, with a wonderful wine list. Please stop... More

We'd been umming and arring about this place all week. I'd read the previous reviews which are positive but every time we drove by it looked quiet which is always a bit of a red light for me, of course it is a much quieter time generally for us hordes of tourists . On our last night in Frigiliana I... More

Having eaten their at both lunchtime and in an evening I would definitely suggest its a lunchtime venue with an amazing value/quality €10 menu del dia. The evening menu pretty much replicates that of lunch time but more expensive providing less value for money. Fantastic attentive waiter, very pleasant We will definitely visit again.
