Ate dinner here tonight and enjoyed it. I had the grilled trout, which was nice, along with some steamed veggies. The show is nice to watch and I think families with kids would especially enjoy the show (although none were in attendance tonight).

Good seafood. We had the locally caught trout. The meals were well prepared and reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful staff.

The idea of a dinnershow with panflute music might sound nice, but this is defintely not the best place. The dance and music was sloppy, and worst of all the food was plain bad. Tough cevice followed by a cuy that was more bone than...More

Every day from 7.30 Pm until 9 Pm you can enjoy festive folk show of multiple Peruvian bands. Amazing cultural experience accompanied with great meals and perfect service. You can go just for the show or get the whole dinner with many dining options prepared...More

Being a peruvian, I was quite uneasy while I watched their dance show and try their food. Granted, peruvian culture is so vast that I always feel like a tourist when visit places in my own country, but my comparison and expectations are surely different...More

I had the confit Cuy (Guinea pig) and it was very tasty. Probably different from the other versions you've tried in Peru. There was a live show of dance and music. Although interesting, it was so loud that you had to yell to have a...More

The food is ok, very big selection, not surprising, but just ok local food. The music and dancing is lovely and is interesting to see and this justify choosing this place for dinner on your one or two nights in Puno

Stopped in for traditional Peruvian food and for the dance show! This was a super fun part of our trip to Peru - it was pretty touristy, but if the shoe fits... Glad we made time for this on our trip! Reservations recommended.

We are interested in going to Balcones de Puno, but can't find information on the dinner/show. Is it a restaurant with a free show, or a show that serves a meal? Is there a set time to attend the show and you order once you arrive? Is the show a separate price and then you pay for a meal, too? How much is an average price per person? Thanks!

The show is included in the price of the meal. The show starts at 7:30 (verify to make sure this is still true today). We left at 9:00 and it was still going on, but I think it is only scheduled to last for an hour. It was... More
