    The restaurant accommodated me adding extra people to the booking twice. They were very helpful with my nut allergy and once again the food was amazing. They have an amazing selection of wine and the service was fabulous.

    Food and service are excellent! We went to celebrate my friend’s birthday and got a great service from waitress - I forgot to ask her name but she is tall and has curly hair. Also the food is yummy. I will definitely go back again. Highly recommend the restaurant to anyone.

    Wonderful meal, very friendly service. If it's your first time visiting, do get them to explain how they recommend to order, as certain parts of the menu they bring out at different times and the dishes are meant to be shared on the table

    The food is above average but unfortunately the staff and their lack of service can ruin the experience. They don’t listen to the order properly and bring food out at times that don’t make sense. We had to literally wave our arms about for their attention even though the room was only half full and they weren’t doing anything- this was to make our first order and every other request after that.

    Love the extensive wine list. The somm was helpful in recommending a bottle for us and the waitress was very attentive. The food was pretty good and very filling. My favourite was the olive oil ice cream

    We sat at the front of the restaurant with a Window view on to the street. The staff were very attentive and helpful with the menu and topping up our water. The starters were expensive for what you got $5 for one cod croquette and the chorizo and egg bread tasted a bit strange. For the main course we ordered lamb which was delicious and melt in your mouth but was served lukewarm. The fried potatoes with garlic were amazing so crispy and delicious. Limited tapas menu offered for the 30% discount.

    Seriously good food. We shared the chicken wing entree which was lucky as it was a huge dish. My lamb rump was delicious, tender and again, generous. Husband loved his chicken dish. Reluctantly declined dessert as we were too full. Definitely would recommend. Close enough to the Opera House to be a pre show meal destination.

    Excellent experience with delicious food and very good service. On the downside the plates are a bit small, but overall we had a wonderful night. Would definitely recommend Balcon.

    Love this place. Food, drink, ambience all faultless. Only one criticism - the few times we have booked here on a special, it has never been automatically reflected in the bill. If we point it out, the staff always apologise and apply the advertised special and give us a new bill. A few times we have not pointed it out and walked out paying full price. Annoying to realise after you have left.
