The food is simple, nothing amazing, but solid and dependable. Good chicken, excellent fish, and ropa was great. But what makes this an experience is the view. What a view!! If all you do is stop by to have a beer, DO IT!

We stopped here for lunch on our day tour of Vinales. Our guide, Lisandra B. with havanatur.cu arranged delicious vegetarian meals for us including soup, rices and vegetables, fresh fruits and coffees. The views here are simply amazing. We had a wonderful meal.

Do go there with a taxi for the view, but skip the meal and do not order anything but drinks or a fruit plate. On the whole, the food is very bland, lacks freshness and taste. Vinales has much, much better restaurants to offer.

Typical Cuban food, most of it produced by the restaurant not different to anywhere else, but organic and served with a smile. Lovely view of the valley

We had a 3 km walk up to see the view point (which is about 500m from teh restaurant) and for the dinner in this restaurant. It was absolutely worth it and I recommend that! We had a sunset dinner with a huge plate of delicious shrimps. The photos really show how it is there. Worth going in the evening!

Only stopped for a drink but this must be the best view in the whole valley! You can see why the tours bring people here - although we didn't try the food. Best view in the valley.

Great food and spectacular views -- the decks are built out over the valley. Be sure to be there for the sunset.

I traveled to Cuba with a group of friends & we asked our host to help us organize a day trip to Viñales. After our visit to Cueva del Indio some of the group wanted to go horseback riding & while they went the rest of us stayed behind at Balcon del Valle. There's no menu as this is a... More

Ok, to be fair...Cuba is not known for good food. Yes, that is everywhere! We are foodies and adjusted our palates to this reality very quickly. Enjoy the food and a bad bottle of Chilean wine. The service is friendly and the views are spectacular!
