I had a "Bistec Encebollado" (Beeksteak drowning in onions) to die for and my friend had a "Mofongo Relleno de Pollo en salsa de zetas" (Mashed Plantains filled with chicken and in a mushroom sauce) that she loved.

Hilton Resort is a great place, but El Bohio Restaurant is not near the Hilton. Is a small familiar restaurant, but with great food! If you are in Ponce, go to El Bohio. You will enjoy the experience.
