Ate here twice with my husband. Both times the waitress has been very friendly and helpful in choosing something from the menu and generally chatting. Food is lovely and a good choice of wine.
The first time we felt the lighting was too bright but the waitress dimmed the lights which made the atmosphere better. Would generally recommend this restaurant as nice to have something different in the area and not another Mediterranean restaurant.

First visit since it opened and was not disappointed. Staff were great and attentive. The menu was small but there was something for every pallet and the food was amazing.
Thoroughly recommend this and will be back.
3 courses and drinks came to £50 a head. The sharing platter is fantastic but you do need to order sides with it.

A welcome addition to Welling’s somewhat sparse restaurant community. Amazing food and extremely generous portions. Service was friendly and efficient. We’ll definitely be back to try more of the menu.

The waitress was friendly, polite and very attentive.
We ordered the fried Squid for a starter and I can honestly say it was the best I have ever had.
The food was really nice and the cocktails were absolutely amazing.
I can’t wait to go back

Wow ! Amazing Cuban food in Welling !
We had a mixture starters all good portion size and very tasty.
Decided to go for a burger as first visit and were really surprised at quality .Excellent .
Much better than famous burger gourmet chains and for size with homemade chips good value.
We will definitely come back to try sharing platter.

Booked for mother’s day and given Buck’s Fizz on arrival. Good choice on menu and the best mussels I’ve had for a while. Staff were attentive and friendly. There was themed music in the background which was good. Only thing I would say is drinks a bit pricey.

Will be booking again though as great atmosphere.

My husband and daughter took me here for Mother's Day lunch. What a wonderful choice! We will definitely be back and will bring friends. Do book as they are not overstaffed and it's a small restaurant. Just so delighted that Balseros is in our neighbourhood. Definitely deserves local support. The staff is delightful, the decor and music fun and inviting, good drink selection at near enough London prices, but the margaritas were truly delicious and not watered down. The beer on tap choice is modest but good quality. The food is outstanding. We shared a few small plates to start - black bean hummus, fried chilies, and the meat empanadas - all incredibly fresh ingredients and the empanadas, particularly, were delicious. The fried chilies had the added fun of a 'russian roulette' of who would get the very spicy ones. My daughter and I both had the seabass with crushed potatoes, greens and tomato salsa, which was delicious, perfectly cooked, again all with the freshest and tastiest ingredients. My husband had the burnt end burger, which arrived in a cloche!, and said he can't wait to go back and order it again. Just truly outstanding. Thank you!!

This is the second time that I have eaten here and again it did not disappoint me. The staff are very friendly the food was first class. We had the filet steak and all I want to know is, who supplies the beef? The quality is fantastic and so reasonably priced
For a local restaurant you can’t do much better and I would encourage anyone to support it.
Will definitely be going back, and soon

Our 2nd visit and a really enjoyable meal again. I'd reccomend the Brazilian croquettes as a starter. Its always a really good menu offer. We experienced very nice service and our waitress remembered us from previously which is a nice touch. The ambience needs to improve for 5 stars, the space is quite open and sound can travel easily from tables with large groups and it can get quite noisy.

Good value for money with a latin flavour to it. But, I would expect more Cuban food being categorised a Cuban restaurant

Adventurous menu with a number of authentic Cuban dishes on offer. Please give this restaurant a try, I promise you’ll not be disappointed. We had patacones (fried plantains Cuban style) these are very moorish 😋 and my husband had the flaming chorizo from the specials board. For mains we both had the slow cooked beef rib with roasted veg and thick cut chips. I cannot emphasise enough how delicious and plentiful this dish was. The beef was beautifully soft and flavoursome and a excellent (and abundant) selection of roasted veg. The thick cut potatoes are sublime and cooked to perfection. I can honestly say we have found our new favourite local.

Friendly and attentive staff and the decor is fresh and modern. Highly recommended!

The food was really slow to come out, although there were just 4 tables dining. The same food was not so good in quality, and the oil used to fry croquettes was really old.

Food was really good. The plates are rather tricky to eat off as you end up chasing your food. I would recommend this to everyone.
