“Very good food every time”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

La casita del Chef offers great Puerto Rican and continental cuisine. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked. I particularly enjoy the fresh fish of the day with either garlic, cilantro or escagot sauce. The black bean soup is the best. The sides of mogongo are also excellent.

“Delicious food!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

A great place to have real "comida criolla", and the sangria is good, the only thing I don't like is the waiting time for the food.

“Great food, elegant service. A must”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

This is where old and new money comes together in Ponce. Fillet Mignon, extraordinary. Only a bit pricy on the menu, but overall would definate worth it.

“Best meal in months ”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

Truly excellent. The seafood salad (hot) was like a fine bouillabaisse and the meringue was amazing. Even the mafungo was good.

“Our best meal in while in Ponce”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

A new acquaintance in Puerto Rico recommended La Casa Del Chef to my companion and me while on a vacation/business trip to Ponce. Several in our group enjoyed dining here and came back with big smiles and happy stories. We decided to visit during the lunch hour to dine leisurely. Our trunk fish and lobster appetizers were tasty and the Spanish ham and bean soup very flavorful. I decided on the grouper filet with cilantro sauce and my companion the sea bass with escargot salsa. Both were excellent, but the sea bass coated in buttery escargot was delicioso. For desert I couldn't pass on the meringue and she enjoyed the orange cake. We finished off our superb meal with a cappucino and an espresso, respectively. The waiters were friendly and attentive, and the room decor simple but comfortable, full of hanging artwork. La Casa Del Chef is a hidden gem in a corner of the parking lot at Centro del Sur Mall. Do not pass it by.
