At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.

Good lunch

Yummy goat cheese sandwich, delicious baguette pizza. The quiche had a little too much salmon but was otherwise ok. Decor is relaxed and the ambiance very pleasant. Prices were very reasonable. All in all, you won't be disappointed.

Skip this one. The food was average at best. Healthy food is not always tasty food. The quiche I ordered was too eggy - no cheese at all. I couldn't eat it so had to order some bread. The wait staff was very young and not well trained.

I had been a fan of Ponce way back when they were at their original location in Manchester. After not having eaten there for a couple of years I stopped for a quick lunch with a friend and was not disappointed. Excellent salad and great service with patio seating. Will go back for sure.

You will have a hard time selecting what to eat. All sound tempting and all the two of us tried were delicious. Be sure to leave room for the generous, melt-in-your-mouth portion of bread pudding at the end.

After a meeting in E. Dorset, I had breakfast here awaiting the opening of the shops in Manchester. I was going next door to the Little Rooster, but the do not accept credit cards, so I gave the Ponce Bistro a try. A European feeling warmed to the place, along with the sight of fresh bakery items. I chose the... More

The stars say it all...Ponce Bistro is just average. My husband and I ate here for our anniversary dinner; we live in the area and wanted to try something new. The food was just okay, neither of us thought it was worth the money. The worst part was having to listen to one of the waitresses (not ours) chew her... More

The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was very good! We were given ample time to peruse the menu and our questions about specific items were answered by a friendly waitstaff. We had plenty of time to chat and enjoy a glass of wine while our meals were prepared. The dessert choices were small but the meal was so good... More

My wife and I had the egg salad with paprika on a croissant. Came with a side salad, which was good. Egg salad one of the best ever and the croissant ps were heated. My daughter had the berry and nut salad, which she enjoyed. Desserts looked good, but we did not indulge.

We stopped in at Ponce Bistro for lunch while shopping in Manchester. The restaurant was tastefully decked out for the holidays and a fire was going which added nice ambience on a cold winter day. The service was very good and we were prompted offered a choice of sitting at a table or sofa and chair area. We chose the... More

We ate at here last night and the food was delicious! Ponce is a must when in Manchester. The restaurant is so comfortable and inviting with great music. We cannot wait to go back this weekend for the live jazz.
