Visited the restaurant several times, mostly for business dinner, and all have been good experiences.
Food is awesome, fresh, on time and has great quality. Also you'll find a nice selection of wines.
Chef Panchi will come to visitors' table to ensure dishes are as expected.
Recommend to ask for the "hidden menu"; it is chef's creation of the day.
In my opinion the restaurant is one of the best in Ponce and south coast of Puerto Rico.

Sincerely,
Melvin

We went to this restaurant for the first time last Sunday, before visiting the Museo de Arte de Ponce. The staff was friendly even before we got there, when we called to ask for directions. The place is very clean and has a comfortable environment. The food was delicious and original. Great appetizers such as stuffed mushrooms, crabcakes and escargots. For the main course there were fine fish plates (salmon and codfish) as well as wonderful shrimp crepes. We hardly had room left for dessert but we had to try the cheesecake which was worth all the calories. Definitely hope to return to Panchis. It is perfect for a day trip from the San Juan area, combined with a visit to any of Ponce's tourist attractions.

This place got me speechless... There's variety in the menu. The food is absolutely delicious. The service is great; the waiters are very nice, helpful and attentive. The place is casual, but it has an elegant touch. It also has a nice atmosphere. I highly recommend visiting this place, it totally worth it.

We have visited El Negocio de Panchi on no less than 10 occasions and every single time it has been outstanding. World class dining. This time I had tomato soup and blackened tuna in a tamarind sauce from the specials of the day, and both were absolutely scrumptious. The staff is very cordial and Panchi (the chef/owner) made a point of stopping by every table. Wonderful dining experience.
