“Very nice dinner”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Upon the recommendation of Christian at the Mi Tierra Hotel we had dinner at the el Balcon. We were given a voucher for a free cocktail, and the restuarant was a short walk from the hotel. My wife and I shared the house special fish with white sauce, which I thoroughly enjoyed. We ate early, and had a table right in front of the open window where we could people watch. Service was great. High marks for this restuarant!
