“THE BEST RESTAURANT AROUND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

We eat at El Balcon de las Americas very very very often, in fact our kids tease us because we go there so often, and we are not even Columbian or Hespanic for that matter. The food here is always fresh and tasty. We have never had a bad meal there and there cakes, cookies and coffee are delicious. P.S. The atmosphere is awesome, feels like home.

“Yummy Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2010

The food is delicous here and the prices very reasonable. The yummy meat pies and great meals make this a great place for lunch or dinner. The staff has always been great too. Every day there is a special, and it is always very filling.

“Best Colombian food around!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2010

I highly recommend this resturaunt to all who desire a unique experience in terms of food. After visiting Colombia, and enjoying the delicious food there, I was craving a taste of Colombia once more. I discovered "El Balcon De Las Americas", where I was able to enjoy one of the most delicious meals. Despite the flawed atmosphere, and hidden location, it was a joy to feast on such wondrous foods. The food was as good, if not better than what I had at Colombia. There is also an area where you can purchase snacks to bring home, all confined to this one resturaunt. I can assure you, you wont find similar food anywhere else. I recommend the "churrasco", it's always fresh. Nice people too.
