Myself and my new wife (on our honeymoon) just intended to pop into Balboa and ended up staying there the whole night, til closing time.
The guys behind the bar were great and Andre was a great host for us the whole night. We had great craic with the guys and had a ball.
It's a really cool open place with a really brilliant vibe.
Pizza we got was delicious, and I meant to steal the recipe.
The music was unreal and probably the main reason we called in, to be honest, as we heard it walking around the corner on to the street. Jules Tera was belting out some cracking tunes and he came over to us also for a chat!
We chatted to a few locals drinking there and they were really lovely.
So all in all we are delighted we called into Balboa and you must def call in here for a few nice drinks and soak it up, its a must in Stellenbosch, besides all the wine farms.
Cheers guys and if ever in Belfast we'll take you out for a few Guinness, so give us a shout.

We landed here by chance, recommend by another restaurant. We were meant to just have a drink and move on, but we stayed the whole night. This is really an amazing place and we had a great evening. We enjoyed yummy Nachos followed by the best tasting cocktails in Stellies. The atmosphere was amazing and the bartenders were very charming.

Chilled atmosphere and great staff, the pulled Brisket taco’s are PHENOMENAL, a visit to Stellenbosch is incomplete if you don’t come here and have them

After Vensters, we just tried to stay clear of the student crowds and headed to Balboa for a drink. Loved the vibe and decor and their bar runs quite smoothly- just be warned, they are expensive- but that is how they keep the students out.
