Great restaurant in Mary Brickell Village.
We had dinner with my family and the food was outstanding.
Full of flavor and with perfect portions.
We had Tuna tartare so fresh and delicious to start and we had the lamb chop, the salmon and the sea bass for entree. Just spectacular!
Everything in a nice atmosphere with a European service that put customer first.
Can’t wait to go back there.
P.S: The crazy pea&mint sponge cake with wasabi sorbet is hidden gem.

I had been here before and sat at the bar, got the sea bass and remembered loving it. I made a reservation to return again, and this time around unfortunately my experience was not the same. Balan’s dropped the ball. I ordered an appetizer to start, then ordered the sea bass. It took over 45 minutes for my app to come out, which was just a crab cake. Not only did it take that long for my app to come out, they sent my sea bass out directly after!!! I barely even had a second bite of my appetizer, before it was placed in front of me. I had waited so long and now they are rushing my food out, which I absolutely hate. In addition the sea bass wasn’t as I remembered. It was suuuuper tough to cut into. Definitely something was up with the kitchen. Sad for the experience, it makes me not want to go back even though I enjoyed it so well the first time.

Service was terrible. We waited 40 min to get our silverware. The food arrived at the table and we didn’t even had silverware.
And it was not even busy… we were the first table to arrive. Very poor!

Love this place! Everything about the experience was awesome. From our charming Mexican host Victor, you are super friendly waitress Michelle, and the funny but cool manager Julio, these guys teamed up to make my date a special experience.

Not only is the service and the food grade, but they bring in performers and awesome DJs on the weekends that’s a perfect vibe. Plus, it’s centrally located in Brickell so it’s a perfect starting or ending point to your night.

Definitely recommend it, and definitely going back.

The service was extremely slow and subpar. Our waiter forgot about us for a solid 20 mins after we asked for just another minute deciding what we wanted to order. All of our food came out together even though we requested our first dish to be shared, and my entree was cold!
