This is a fantastic restaurant! We went here on our first night in Cologne and it was a great welcome to the city. They staff were friendly and welcoming and more than happy to help when looking at the menu. We were recommended medium rare which is what I had and I have to say it is one of the... More

Don't go there if you're in a group! You will wait a long time before you get your order! If you want to have tap water, you'll wait a long time... And don't get it in the end (the 7 euros water bottle will came faster but beer will be cheaper). In the end, if you want to pay separately,... More

Great steak, good service. Do not go during a trade fair if possible. The artichoke salad with pepper steak is a great combination.m With a few Kolsch beers your on the way for a great evening. Finish the night with a brew with some vibes at papa joes around the corner and a night cap at the Fruh.

Eight of us visited Ponchos when we were on our football tour to Cologne, we read the great reviews on Tripadvisor and decided we had to try it out and we were blown away. We were going to go back the night after with the entire team but they were closed (it was a Sunday evening). The steaks were delicious... More

The steaks were great but do not order medium rare unless you like raw meat. I took a medium+ and it was perfect. Do look at the "wine list" and choose the Malbec or one of the priceier. The house wine is undrinkable and makes me sneeze.

We had a booking for 14 people during a business trip to Cologne. Steakhouse Ponchos got it SPOT ON! The service was fantastic (the head waiter was brilliant with quite a rowdy English sales team), the food was incredible and everyone agreed we would go back next year when attending the same event. To sum up how good the food... More

One of the best steaks we've had - beautifully tender and full flavoured. If we'd been staying in Cologne for longer, we would have made a return visit.

We were seated 20 min after our reservation time. Ordered pretty quickly as we were starving but then waited 2 hrs for our food. On top of this were the waiters very rude and kept lying telling us the food was 10 min away. To top it off the waiter asked for a tip and got angry when we refused.... More

We felt like a steak on our first night in Cologne, and so I did a Trip Advisor search and found Ponchos. We were a bit sceptical, but considering how tired we were, we decided to just give it a try. There are a whole heap of Argentinian places down by the water – but lucky we found a review... More
