We had a good evening at Los Balcones de Puno. We arrived at 7.30pm, just in time for the start of the show. For about 2 hours, they successively featured traditional dances (with different costumes each time, colorful and elaborate) and traditional music pieces (guitar and flute). As another reviewer said, the show was full of energy and enthusiasm, quite... More

The show starts promptly at 7:30 every night, we got a reservation 15 minutes prior and it was just perfect. We ate an amazing vegetarian dinner, although they have lots of other options, and tipped generously to both the band and the dancers. Still under 200 soles. The show was beautiful and moving, and lasted for about 90 minutes, well... More

A great evening out. Authentic Peruvian food with dishes such as Cuy (Guinea Pig), alpaca and Trout (from lake titicaka). The food is good quality and tasty. Service is fast and friendly with English speaking. There is also local dancing show with traditional music. This creates a great atmosphere.

We had two different alpaca dishes which were amazing. The desserts (cheesecake and coca mousse) are also highly recommendable. The artists put great effort into their show which was perfect to along with the meal.

This is the first time in my life that I go to a restaurant with show and the food is superb. Normally there is a trade-off between the quality of the food and that of the show but in this case both are great. And, the prices are very reasonanable

I went there on word of mouth by a local pharmacist. What a fabulous find! The food was so good I asked to speak to the owner, everyone is so eager to talk about bad things but not enough people say thank you. I told him that the food was great, Ivonne the server was great, I told Mr. Oscar... More

Was with a tour group and these folkloric evening are usually pretty bad fare - well this one surprised me -- it was actually enjoyable and the FOOD and service were amazing. Everyone enjoyed their dinners and the price is relatively low for very good food and show. Would recommend.

I was expecting a cheesy tourist show. No. The performers were dynamic, talented and passionate. Loved every minute of it. The food was presented in a beautiful way and was also really flavorful. I had the alpaca. The rest of the table really enjoyed their beef and fish too. Definitely check it out!

I reluctantly went to Balcones de Puno, since I don't usually like touristic places with entertainment as it is rarely authentic and the food usually suffers at the expense of the show. But I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. Ok, the show is a bit tacky, but if you take it with a sense of humor, then it could... More
