Winner of the Coveted Silver Fork Award "Panza's creative International Cuisine, attentive and friendly service is an elegant ambiance" El Nuevo dia Newspaper - 2007
Condé Nast Traveler "In newly energized Viejo San Juan, Panza is a contemporary take on civilized chic. In the Hotel The Cervantes, a restored eighteenth-century building, the restaurant is warm and cozy despite its high ceilings, polished marble and stone and metallic accents. Its subtle tasty cuisine combines meat and seafood with flavors: lobster bisque with coconut; fried calamari in salad of frisée and banana with a miso-orange vinaigrette; and roasted boar chop with white-bean chili in a plantain basket"
