We decided to stop here on our way from Fajardo to Rincon- we had not made reservations and we weren't even sure we could find it... Luckily we did and it was the best dinner decision we made all trip! The wait staff are so sweet and nice, they actually give you time to enjoy your drink before your meal-... More

The restaurant selection is Ponce is limited. This place is a gem! Food and service were outstanding - 5++. Food prepared perfectly and served with a smile. It is clearly a local favorite, the diners seemed to all know each other. Would have given this 5 stars but for the noise level in the restaurant. They moved into a new... More

I've been to the place every time a visit ponce, since i first went with co-workers. The menu is hand selected by the owner ana it changes regularly, so there is always something new. Their foie-gras is unique in the area and their have renovated to accomodate more people due to it's success. I go as often as i can.

We had trouble finding this place and called for help. The owner gave us directions and stayed on the phone until we were by. The owner/chef translated the menu for us (was in Spanish) and we were just amazed at this level of service. We let him know we were delighted with the food and service and that the building... More

Take a moment to plan your evening dining experience and make reservations. This small restaurant with 8 tables plus a bar fills up fast and is worth taking the time. Prepare to be in for a treat, even for the biggest foodie! We started with the soup of the day - tomato and it was fantastic, garnished with fresh cherry... More

At Negocio de Panchi everything is delicious -- creative nuances to old favorites are simply amazing and unique creations made brand new. The owner/chef, Panchi, is truly an artist – a true genius with food and he is a nice guy. Try it. You will run back. Thanks Panchi for a wonderful experience! St. Louis Girl 2014

We were served an excellent bean soup and scallops for appetizers. The fish we ordered for our main entree was superb--flakey and absolutely fresh. This is clearly a top Ponce restaurant.

The menu was so interesting I wanted to order everything. We tried the tomato soup, mushrooms stuffed with manchego cheese and prosciutto, chicken breast stuffed with queso del país and ham, and the... More
