The food at Balcones de Puno is not bad and not overpriced considering the show is the draw. Service is a little slow, but this is understandable given that pretty much everyone is ordering at the same time (showtime). It's lots of fun watching the waiters running up and down the stairs to and from the kitchen. The show was great--I commend the dancers who really looked like they were enjoying themselves and not just going through the motions. The band was excellent too. Have some soles on hand if you stay until the end of the show as the dancers go table to table looking for (well-deserved) tips. Reserve ahead. Glad we did this.

You must go to “Balcones de Puno”, a great restaurant with a great folkloric dance show. Excellent food, clean, and good service. I highly recommend you reserve your table even though they tell you is not necessary.

The music and dancing were very entertaining and the food was delicious. We enjoyed Peruvian music and dance for over 2 hours while we ate a 3 course Peruvian meal.although the table next to us had the traditional Peruvian dish of guinea pig, we chose instead pork and loved it.

We visited this restaurant because it was the best restaurant in town, so went with a group dinner here. It was very busy because all the tables were occupied. There were tables and chairs buried. This evening there was also a music and dance group. Nice show, very cozy. Our waiter was very good and took our order and brought bread, salads and drinks. Then came the menu and desserts, these were very tasty. A very pleasant and successful evening. Recommended.

I was wary of going to a restaurant with a tourist floor show, but my fears were misplaced.

The food was good and prices were OK. The band was definitely the best we heard in Peru. The dancing was entertaining with impressive costumes.
