    It was a nice evening but nothing too special or unique. The cocktails were a bit bland, the chocolate dessert was dry and the service was haphazard.

    Beyond the delicious food and the terrific menu, is the service. It was particularly busy, and yet the staff where attentive and helpful. With a group, it was very easy to place ourselves in the hands of the obviously experienced waitstaff, who checked with the table on any dietary issues and preferences and then bought an amazing array of courses and dishes to the table to the satisfaction of all.

    Food was very nice, best Spanish restaurant we’ve had in sydney so far. We ordered the croquettes, sardine, jamon, octopus and donuts, and no dish was disappointing. portion is a bit small with price up there (we didn’t have any main though). Overall a cozy place with amazing food for all kinds of occasion.

    The staff were lovely. Food to table was in good timing. Good quality food, tapas style for each meal. Didn’t mean e feeling hungry. Menu was limited due to covid, I would return once full menu is back up too

    The food and service experience at BALCON once again failed to disappoint! Delicious entrees and mains were served with excellent presentation, and the wines recommend by our knowledgeable waiter according to our indication of what style we wanted, paired perfectly with our dishes! The only small but key fly in the ointment was however that the 30% discount from booking online meant we were limited to seating in the front section of the restaurant close to the front door, which unfortunately detracted from the ambience somewhat. It would have been good to know when booking online beforehand, that the discount entailed this key relegation of seating. But overall a great dining experience! Well done BALCON!

    Good food - the chicken and the steak were in particular, excellent. The wine list uses a slightly tricky coding scheme which isn't the easiest to navigate. Service was good.

    I dined here with my family including 3 teens. Something for everyone on the menu and the tapas allowed them to try things they might not normally risk. Service was friendly but efficient. Overall value was very good too. Thanks for a good evening.

    Very sad to say that the food was unwhelming and menu selection a little smaller than expected. Service was great. I prefer their sister restaurant (Born by Tapavino).
