Excellent, but...

We came for the conchas negras... but they were out. But their ceviche de mero was the best ceviche my girlfriend and I had in Peru. The quality of the fish was excellent, and the food it was served with was delicious too. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 point rating: We got a... read more

The food, dont miss the Parihuela, cebiche and jalea. Awesome place to eat like a god in Mancora. Of course, prices are the best.

Excellent seafood at a good price, just off the main drag away from the beach. Lizbeth y Lizbeth (must be sisters or Very close friends) will take good care of you. S25 with large Brahma.......

We all had different seafood dishes and liked them. Although one person said their ceviche was "overcooked" - in that they let it sit in the lime juice too long. This place had been recommended to us by a local of Piura. The best was probably the ceviche de mero. The service was very slow and we waited more than... More

The food was good, food did not come all at once. There were food that came an hour later than others. That was the main complain not only in our table. They run out of water so the bathrooms were not clean and the dishes were not cleaned properly.

We ate at all of the top restaurants here and this was our favorite. This is where the Peruvians eat, it is not a tourist joint. We ordered black oyster ceviche, fried Mero fish and lobster with the seafood salsa; all of these dishes were amazing. I feel confident saying that you could pick any dish and it would be... More

This is a cevicheria, so basically you need to like fish or seafood! The food was delicious and portions were generous. We had just one ´menu´ between myself and my wife and were satisfied. The 'menu's' are a set meal, with a choice or 2 or 3 starters and 3 or 4 mains, for just 20 soles (less than £5).... More

We were recommended to try this restaurant by a local. At this point in the day, we were hungry and tired and we had no other option as we had just arrived to Mancora. The food was surprisingly very good. My husband had Peruvian rice with seafood (calamari, shrimp, octopus) and I had the steamed lobster with rice. The value... More

My chilean girlfriend and I ate at Las Gemelitas during our week long vacation in Mancora. By the way, I'm a gringo. We are huge peruvian food enthusiasts and wanted to find awesome peruvian food in Mancora. For starters we ate cebiche mixto which was good, but not spectacular. The seafood really did not taste fresh. For our main course... More
