Nice place bad service

Despite it's a beautiful restaurant in La Balconada beach, with a great view to the ocean, the staff is obviously not prepared to receive visits as you would expect to. I would recomment visiting the beach, but to have lunch or dinner I would recommend other excellent restaurants near to Punto Sur.

We went there hoping it would be a nice place to have some drinks and eat something while watching the sunset. So, we ordered beer and caipirinha, both great. Some crab and fries, both tasty, yet expensive. Sunset; check. Fresh air:check. The issue was that the service is by far the worst in La Paloma. The waitress tought he was... More
