Having experienced buffet style restaurants I was slightly dubious but this was excellent. Beautifully displayed food and plenty cooked to order with a different theme each night. Fresh fruit at breakfast was exceptional

We are in the Balafon a few times. Each meal was amazing. The service was fantastic as was the setting. We were served quality wine with our meals. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
