Balicana has great Asian food and service. Balicana is tucked in off the street. Balicana was a highlight of the restaurants we went to on Bavaro.

All items of the menu I have tried taste like cheap soy sauce. Food is not creative nor authentic. Not worth paying for it. One time I went with a group of over 20 people for a company dinner and nobody liked the food. The service is mostly terrible, as you have to wait forever for everything, and staff act... More

Balicana is a great little spot with an authentic vibe due to the decor. There is a small pool just off of the dining area and the location is very relaxing.... More

If you are staying at the Now Larimar Hotel, this restaurant is right next door. And it's a must visit. The food is amazing and it's a welcome relief from the all-inclusive food. The location is also peaceful.

We ate dinner here on our last night. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. Unless you are very hungry share an order. The portions are huge. We had Spring rolls along with shrimp. We enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone visiting in the area.
