Flavors are a good mix between homemade and chef food

Restaurant is located in front of the beach and is nicely musicalized during the day accordingly. Food is good, acceptable price, but do not expect to get served a lot...

Love this place - brought my daughter here - great food - and one of the only places with seaside dining AFAICT - highly recommended - why go eat on a dusty traffic filled road in mancora when you can come here and eat by the ocean? To get there take a moto taxi to Las Pocitas (5 min tops)... More

We are on our last night of 3 in Mancora. Due to a communications problem we did not stay at The Hotelier, but at the nearby Sausalito Hotel. The first day here we went to Donde Teresa for lunch and have followed it up with 2 dinners and another lunch. And are returning for our last dinner tonight. We have... More

We expected more from Donde Teresa after reading about the credited chef, but he doesnt seem to set the standard for his employees. We both had pasta in a fusion style with seafood. This was nothing special and too salty. Staff were friendly but did little more than they had to. The barman had a cap with a moustache mounted... More

Teresa Ocampo's cooking legacy lives on through this wonderful beachside restaurant as created by one of her son's, Javier. I arrived in Mancoria wanting to explore the area and did finally motivate for a dinner up north at Punta Sal, but the highlights of my trip were really in the relaxing at the Donde Teresa restaurant. The trago peruano that... More

This little beach side restaurant does not look much but the tuna coated in black sesame seeds was so unbelievably good I went 3 times (at lunch time). Tuna was cooked to perfection. The staff were really friendly, even the chef who I spoke to on the beach one day! The restaurant is on las pocitas beach so takes about... More

Food was not fresh and served cold. The dishes look alright on the menu but the taste is average. You can get great food for 35 soles anywhere in Peru, not here though. Try La Sirena in Mancora, we had causa with fresh tuna and ravioles de camote( 25 soles).

Dinner at this place is a must. The restaurant is part of Hotelier Hotel. Nothing fancy, it has a very laid back and artistic environment right in front of the sea at Las Pocitas. Try the "brochetas de langostinos al ajillo". Also "Causa a dos tiempos" is awesome and their "Atun sellado" should be internationally rewarded.
