We had amazing service. The cocktails were fantastic (as is the Canitas beer). And each of the entrees was quite good, with a coconut curry as a real solid standout.

Went to DR for the first time in 5 years, and was exited to go to Balicana again, as it always was my favourite restaurant there. And of course , it didn't disappoint 👌 Food still delicious , drinks amazing (especially the passion fruit Caipirinha), and the desserts are just wow (fried cheese cake roll with apple and ice cream.......

We had beef in oyster sauce and a green Malaysian curry. Both were delicious and had good veggies, which we were sorely craving! They warned us that the curry was very spicy but I wouldn't agree. It was easy to eat. Great poolside location.

The food and drinks were great. Service was a little slow. Great location by the pool and luckily there wasn't tons of noise from the pool. The menu has a variety of Asian cuisine. Prices weren't bad at all. Most definitely recommend this place to all.

Lovely setting when there aren't any kids jumping in the pool ! Best service we experienced in Punta Cana. My beef rendang was really tasty ( yes I have been to SE Asia several times). My sister recommends the chocolate mousse for dessert.

We had a beautiful pool side dinner, with some of the best asian food we have eaten. Traditional starters, a mixed plata, followed by green Thai curry and some beautiful chutneys. The reastaurant is situated very close to Los Corales beach and its funky beach bars. Well worth a visit !

We've eaten here twice now and it's been great both times. It's right next to the pool which is pretty and can also mean you have kids splashing and playing while you eat. The food is very well prepared and the staff is friendly. I highly recommend the food. As with many places you may eat here be prepared for... More

Loved this place. Beautiful poolside dining in a unique and lovely local village. Food was great! We're not usually inclined toward Asian food, but this was one of our vacation favorites. Definitely will return if I'm in the DR again!

Between 2 weeks each visit during Christmas 2015 and Christmas 2016, we have eaten here about 8 times and have yet to have a bad meal. The mosquitos are intense at times but I guess they follow good food too, so with a little repellent, we continue to venture forth. Excellent value for the quality of the food.

We decided to stop at Balicana for a drink and appetizer before dinner. Sat down at a table and listened to a mother yelling at her kid across the pool a couple of times- so much for a relaxing zenlike atmosphere. Kids were diving and we were worried about getting wet. After about 10 or more minutes, the waitress brought... More
