Balicana is our favourite restaurant in Bavaro! The food was great, staff very attentive and the place itself looks fantastic. We spent wonderful evening there. The prices are reasonable. Comparing to other restaurants in Bavaro (often overpriced) it is a great value for money. We loved it! Please note that it's closed on Sundays.

One of my favorite restaurants in Punta Cana. The environment is not fancy at all but warm and friendly, you go to balicana specially for the amazing flavors you will taste there. My favorite dish: curry coconut chicken.

First time visiting Balicana and we love it. The food was very good and the pool, which you can swim while you wait for your meal, is absolutely fabulous. The beach is a few steps from Balicana. The total experience was lovely. I totally recommend this place.

Balicana is one of my favorite places to eat when I go to the Punta Cana area, the place is very casual, but the food is delicious. the staff is also very helpful. the restaurant doesn`t have air conditioner, i would recommend this place better for dinner, since I can be too warm during the day.

We stayed at a nearby condo last November when Balicana was still under construction, we are back and visited the bar for lunch. The service was very good and the chicken strips were good, not great, but good. We will come back

Balicana has a cozy, private, and magical atmosphere The location and decor were beautiful, but the food was less than stellar. Ate here for dinner and everyone in my party, there were five of us, ordered a different entree yet no one liked their meal.

Not only is the food good but the price is good. I dined here 2 times on my one week vacation and I would return again for the value.
