Good Steak

This was a very good steak and cooked medium as requested. I would certainly eat here again. Only go here if you like steak.

This was my first visit to Ponchos, and hopefully wont be my last on visits to Cologne. Had a 300 g Fillet Steak cooked to perfection., and paid a very fair price for a great meal, dont think I could get anything like this back in the UK. Went there mid week about 8-30 pm, and the resurante was moderately... More

Great food, quite pricey but the Steak was worth it. Cool setting, it did get quite hot in there as it is in a basement. Only bad thing is that you need to buy sides otherwise it is only a piece of steak on a plate. Service was really good.

The best steaks in Cologne- great family owed argentine steakhouse, papa cooks, kids wait tables, it's that simple. Fine dinning this is not, fine steak this is 110%. Even on a Monday night the normal German eateries were empty, this place was rammed, don't be put off by the outside look, and the decent to the bowels of a non-descrip... More

The food is good, price high accordingly, but the service is really slow and the place is definitely too hot! The fillet is very tasty

We have been to Ponchos a few times now when we're in Cologne on business, we have also taken many customers here and have never had a bad meal. Everybody who we go with always gushes about how good the steaks are. The fillets are a generous size and always cooked to perfection. The sauces are lovely and everything is... More

Great Steaks and Atmosphere..., this restaurant was highly recommended to me, and it really didn't disappoint, our steaks were perfect, and the general ambience would be appealing to medium to large business groups. It can get quite hot in this subterranean restaurant. However, I had feedback from a friend who visited two days earlier, they were stuck by the kitchen,... More

Best restaurant we ate at in Cologne. The bread served with chimichurri/salsa and garlic sauces to start was amazing. Empanadas were very good. Steak was great and the best baked potato of my life--I never knew a jacket potato could taste so good. Grilled corn was also very good. I put the garlic sauce on everything. Service was friendly and... More

It could have been that we were early to eat but the service was slow. The steak however was excellent and worth the wait. It was cooked just right for me and melted in the mouth and tasted perfect with its seasoning. My starter of garlic mushrooms was substantial and very tasty. Beer and wine were good value. The restaurant... More

I usually visit Poncho once a year when I am travelling for work in Cologne. It is an amazing steak house with beef coming directly from Argentina. If you are a meat eater this is the place to go. The steak are very big and tender. Unfortunately the service sometimes can get a little bit slow and really the only... More
