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).

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... Flavors are a good mix between homemade and chef food. Take your prevision to order with anticipation. Although the place is very small, if two or three tables are occupied,... More

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.

Heard great things about this place and my boyfriend and i thought the food was very average. Certainly wouldn't bother going back and the ceviche in particular was very sharp and not at all special! Thankfully it wasn't too expensive and service was ok!

It is unfortunate you found the ceviche 'sharp'. I suppose that accounts for the acidity of the lemons--which varies sometimes. Hope you had a chance to taste other dishes, and if not we hope you come back. More

I barely can make out your comment. I guess your complaint is that the dish was too small and/or pricey. Our menu has prices from 6-34 soles. The specials on the board can range upwards, depending on the size of the whole fish or lobster or the cost of special ingredients. Our average main dish costs S/.28 or about USD$10.... More
