We went to el balcon yesterday evening, and it's a nice little restaurant overlooking plaza san diego in Cartagena. We had four drinks, including exotic fruit mojitos, cocodka and the house special drink, balconazzo or something. All very nice and plenty of alcohol. Happy hour from 6-9 pm which made the drinks cheap as well as tasty. We had a starter of "sexviche" (yes, that's correct), which was a tasty little, spicy shrimp cocktail with salsa and avocado. For mains we had the green curry and seafood with plantanes. Curry was excellent and spicy, the seafood was lacking salt, otherwise fine. Lovely and kind service from both owners and staff who all speak English as well as Spanish.
Reasonable prices. We paid Cop 100.000 including service for the above.
Would definitely return to el balcón if ever back in wonderful Cartagena.
