Such a wonderful experience! The food, drinks, service and the attention to every detail! Panchi personally explained to us the menu! Who does that?

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...

Wow! I just left the restaurant extremely happy & satisfied. It surpassed my expectations by far. The service is top, so is the food. The chef demonstrates expertise & skills in exquisite dishes.

Around Ponce, there aren't as much dinner options as San Juan, so this one stands out as one of the best. I had duck with marmalade sauce. The duck medallions were perfectly crispy. Bit too much the sweet from marmalade and not enough of the savory I thought. Also, seemingly there's very small selection for wine by the glass.

I've heard so many good reviews of the restaurant that I had to try it, they weren't wrong. It's one of the best, if not the best, in Ponce. It's a small place so reservations is sometimes needed, it's also a bit pricey, but the food is excellent.

Small restaurant, very noisy, parking is a mess, service can be improved, but the food is the best in Ponce and one of the best in the island. I have been to this restaurant multiple times, and every dish I have tried has been very good, perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked.
