The steaks were to die for, cooked to perfection no need to say more! Make sure you try the corn on the cob too, delicious.

I think that Cologne has some of the best Argentinian steakhouses. This one in Salzgasse in the old town is no exception. Basement location, decked out to look like an original, waiters dressed in national dress and outstanding steak with excellent seasoning, a good range of starters, large salads and good value house wine. With friendly and efficient service, it... More

Went on a Sunday night. Cosy little place, could do with a decor revamp but none of that matters when you taste their food. The fillet steak with peppercorn sauce is possibly the nicest piece of meat I've ever eaten!! Melts in the mouth. Waiters are very very friendly and overall enjoyable night.

Had a fun evening here, tony the waiter was really fun and the steaks were absolutely fantastic. Service time was fine but it was very busy. Not cheap but worth it for the meat.

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
