Not a place for a romantic dinner but recommended by a local restaurant owner (whose place was closed, as restaurants in Ponce often are on Mondays or Tuesdays).... The service is casual, not very fluent in English, and somewhat amateurish. But then, the food arrives, and it is great! Homestyle, unpretentious, simply delicious. The plantain stuffed chicken breast wrapped in... More

There were five of us celebrating my son's fortieth birthday. We ordered drinks and appetizers ffor all plus a main local dish each. The food was great, the service very good and the price very reasonable.

My wife and daughter had the mofongo filled with conch, I had breast of chicken a la Yuya and my son had the breaded chicken. We also had rice and beans and salad sides. All was very good. Eat everything. We will certainly go back again.

This is a small restaurant, not in a main street.. a little bit difficult to find. Once you enter in El Bohio will discover great flavors and delicious food. They serve a delicious onion steak, like my grandmothers recipe! The service is great, very friendly, attentive... Visit them and you'll enjoy your experience!

I usually visit this restaurant because the food is excellent. They serve a variety of selections at an affordable price. The place is clean, comfortable and accessible. My favorite is: Bohio Special: a chicken breast filled with prosciutto and peppers, covered with cheese served over a mushroom sauce. Mmmmm and then, ask for a home made custard. You will remember...

This is a great bar outside near the pool at the Hilton. They have a bar menu and I had, over the course of several days, the octopus ceviche once (outstanding!), the burger (huge and good), the shrimp (nice portion and very good!) and the calamari---also very good. They make a drink called the Caribbean Stinger if I remember right.... More
