The steaks were great but do not order medium rare unless you like raw meat. I took a medium+ and it was perfect. Do look at the "wine list" and choose the Malbec or one of the priceier. The house wine is undrinkable and makes me sneeze.

We had a booking for 14 people during a business trip to Cologne. Steakhouse Ponchos got it SPOT ON! The service was fantastic (the head waiter was brilliant with quite a rowdy English sales team), the food was incredible and everyone agreed we would go back next year when attending the same event. To sum up how good the food was, we had two South Africans dining with us...one said it was the best steak he'd had since leaving South Africa 15 years ago, and the other said it was the best steak he'd EVER had. Quite the compliment! Bravo Steakhouse Ponchos!

Visited here for the 3rd time, very busy, good idea to book if its a big Messe event.

Get the mince empanadas, these with the hot sauce are outstanding.

Apart from that is Steak all the way, these come in thick slabs.

Best tip for anyone is on Wine, they dont have a list, just offer you 2 to 3 bottles which are not cheap. They do sell Carafes of a very acceptable Red for far cheaper price. Just ask for them!

One of the best steaks we've had - beautifully tender and full flavoured. If we'd been staying in Cologne for longer, we would have made a return visit.

We were seated 20 min after our reservation time. Ordered pretty quickly as we were starving but then waited 2 hrs for our food. On top of this were the waiters very rude and kept lying telling us the food was 10 min away.
To top it off the waiter asked for a tip and got angry when we refused. What a joke of a place.
I am pretty sure neither from our group will ever go ther again.

STAY AWAY from these arrogant people!
