The service was bad. Our waiter was very unfriendly. Food was served to us cold (all three of us had dishes that weren't hot). Unacceptable in such a high-end restaurant. The setting however is undeniably beautiful.

Very enchanting atmosphere. We were seated so that we could see the whole restaurant. Very nice touch. Food was great and there was plenty of it. Staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. We would definetily come back and recommend to others.

I took the lunch formula. Really well welcomed. Quite simple in composition but really subtile and enthusiatic in execution first course, second course was a little skiny with no special taste (only one scallop on rice with with vegetables), dessert was nice, fresh warm baked bread and nice attentions from the waiter. really pleasant lunch in a beautiful space.

Delicious food, grrat location and atmosphere... Poor service. Very disappointed by the server. We prcered the 7 course menu, wanted wine, cognac, in few words: Enjoy a high end meal but the waiter never stepped at to the level of the cuisine.

This is the second time I have been to La Balsa. The first time was excellent. This time we showed up late due to an error by a taxi driver, which probably explains why our food - almost all of it - was undercooked. Since none of our fav. starters were available - we ordered the salmon main as one of our starters. We like undercooked food, so it wasn't such a problem that the fish was fairly raw, but both of our steaks were served blood rare instead of punto. Worse, we couldn't get a waiter to come to the table so we both starting eating. The meat is excellent, so the taste was quite good, but half way through you simply get a bad stomach, and we both looked at eachother and stopped. The staff was fine about it and credited us for one of the steaks and free cofee, but we both suffered from indigestion - perhaps our own fault for continuing to nibble.

Because they were so kind, we'll go back, but we hope that the chef is not in such a rush next time.
