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.

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...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.

Service was slow and erratic. My guests and I could hear the owners fighting in the kitchen. When our food finally arrived the sides were rubber and tasted as if they had been made well ahead of time and microwaved for service. Not worth the...More

Spending some time riding motorcycles on the back roads and came across this gem. Had a sandwich for lunch, fresh bread and great meats. You will not want to miss his one.

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.
