We stayed at the Ponce Hilton and concierge recommend this restaurant. The food was espectacular. The service was good. The restaurant is a bit pricey, but worth it. I definitely come back.

El Negocio de Panchi is a very unique venue. Although it is high end cuisine the setting is very unassuming. Located in what seems like a very small house on the south side of hwy 14 in Ponce it provides a cozy setting inside. informal/contemporary. Panchy (owner & chef) will come out and greet you to ensure the food is... More

When you think about a small restaurant housed in what almost looks like a "casita Massó" next to an industrial machinery lot in front of a huge strip mall and with such a plain and unimaginative name as "El Negocio de Panchi" (Panchi's Business"), the first thing that comes to mind is a typical Puerto Rican chinchorro (a small, no...

For Ponce I gotta to say the best place I have visited. Ordered the rodaballo and it was perfectly cooked but lacked seasoning. My partner ordered the steak and it was nothing beyond this world, it was cooked well. Enjoyed the service, from beginning to end, very attentive and courteous. Very pricey for a good meal, nothing spectacular. I was... More

Outstanding. Great service, great food. I was trying to see why someone would give this place a 1 star review but couldn't find it. Hats off to Panchi!

The best osso buco ever! The rodaballo was cooked to perfection with a delicious malanga puree. The ambience is excellent and the service, outstanding; this is a very good team. The price is according to the quality of the food. Delicious dessert by the chef (white chocolate cheesecake). Highly recommended! Reserve in advance.

Visited Panchi with my husband and children for Sunday lunch. The food was delicious, the service was smart and the ambiance nice. The cheese empanadillas with the pimento mayo were to die for. The duck, the pork and the fish were all tasty! The crepes with blueberry sauce and the coffee were the perfect ending to a delicious Sunday lunch!... More

Started with a healthy, light and savory spinach salad. Then, main course: halibut and blackened salmon. Finished with a delicious bread puddin and an apple cake. Awesome! Great experience! Outstanding service! We highly recommend it!!

What a find this place is! It was rather hard to find, GPS isn't the greatest in Ponce, it's across the street from the Walmart, actually the Pizza Hut to be more exact! The foie gras was superb, I believe it was grilled and served with a delicious fruit chutney like creation and toasted bread slices. My roasted duck entrée... More
