A must visit restaurant!!

Looking for a restaurant to celebrate Mother's Day, we found this very good one in Ponce. Service is awesome, food is great, very clean and competitive prices. We recommend Panchi, the Chef, and his restaurant!!

Location: I know the area where the restaurant is located pretty well but had trouble identifing their exact location from directions given. Their sign is very close to the entrance so you can go pass it if you don't pay vey close attention. It is not a big deal, but turning around in that street can be a hassle at... More

The attention to detail from the owner, the service was impeccable, the presentation was beautiful and the taste...well I am still salivating over his veal appetizer. Thank you for such a wonderful meal with my wife, and three children (ages 10, 9 and 10 months).

The service of this restaurant is excellent. The presentation and quality of the food can compete with the best restaurants. I have been in El Bulli, Charlie Trotter and French Laundry among others. Unfortunately the decoration is so poor. I understand the building was recently re-done. I cannot belief a good chef does not pays attention to the hold dinning... More

Corned beef and Amarillo rissotto Escargot Petit filet, tuna, with stuffed mushroom and grilled octopus. Fine wine and clean professional atmosphere, a must in Ponce!

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews on tripadvisor. The chef personally explained the menu to us, as it was in Spanish. The service was attentive. Our three appetizers and main courses were outstanding. We shared a dessert which was delicious. We certainly do recommend it to anyone.

Excellent food from the "empanadas de queso", to the duck, rissoto, and the nutella pastry in the dessert. Family owned and operated, caring people in charge. A must in Ponce.

Got to tell you that this is a MUST place to eat if you are anywhere near Ponce. It started as soon as we walked in. This place is very clean and every member there from the hostess to the servers were OUSTANDING! The service and quality of the food reminded me of Trattoria Vittorino in Santurce. While they are...
