My wife & dined at Panchi's on a recent visit to Ponce. The chef, Panchi, made a point to fit is in on a busy night then took the time to personally walk us through the menu since the menu descriptions were a bit beyond our beginner Spanish. The food was excellent, the staff helpful, & the prices quite reasonable.... More

We were returning home to San Juan from a business trip from the west coast. We decided to stop in this restaurant it was 5:00pm, To our surprise the food at the restaurant was excellent, the appetizers and main dishes done to perfection. Overall an excellent fine dining experience in the South.

Excellent dining experience in a small local spot, with great food. Been there twice and each time has been great. Small menu with attention to detail. El negocio de Panchi is a must if you are in Ponce!

We gathered to celebrate Dad's 85 birthday! The staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent! We were allowed to bring our own and favorite birthday cake!! Wine and liquor selection is second to none, the food was well-prepared and the ingredients were definitely fresh! Reservation are a must, we wish they are open more often!

The food was excellent, the atmosphere not very good. The place is small and noisy. The service was so so. They seemed inexperienced. Prices were aprox. 30 to 40% higher than competition.
