The food in this restaurant tasted great but unfortunately the service is really slow. We waited around 40-45 minutes between the starter and the main course. So even if the food is great I can't really recommend the restaurant!

This place is AMAZING! Best steaks you will ever get.. I have visited here three years running on my yearly business trip to cologne and cannot fault it! Food is top class! Ensure you make reservations tough or eat early in it 😀

Save yourself the hassle the attitude is not worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The food was delicious! BUT when it was time to pay they ran my credit card with a blank space for tip. I wrote a 20 tip for my server and added the total to reflect the tip. For some reason the manager or the waiter who has been there... More

Some years ago I used to work in Cologne twice a year and would always make a point of visiting this wonderful place with every visit. However, it's 12 years since I was last there. Myself and five male colleagues were in Cologne last week so I stuck my neck on the block by claiming "Hey, my favourite all-time steakhouse... More

To be honest Steak is not something I would normally order on a meal out. I did pick the most expensive steak on the menu but was not disappointed. By far the best steak I have ever tasted. The meal was pricey but definitely worth it. For that Special Treat a must Try.

We ate here 6 years ago and raved on about the quality of the steaks but were put off by an argument over credit cards. They must decide wether they take credit cards or they don't. This time we were told that their machine was playing up so we would have to pay cash.We said we would leave to which... More

I had a terrible experience at Poncho. I went there for dinner. The place was pretty empty, only three other tables were occupied. The service was horrible. At the table next to mine there were six people that were ordering a lot of alcohol so the waiter decided to concentrate on that table and ignored my table completely. Just to... More
