One of the reason to stay at Hotelier was the food and this restaurant. One time during my stay there, I thought that it worth if I would take a walk to the town and try other different things but my laziness could more so I remained at the hotel and I have no regrets. I tried almost everything and... More

We wandered along the beach and came along this pretty spot for a drink. We ended up enjoying a fabulous dinner...service was attentive, meal was best we've had yet in Mancora (tuna tartare & tuna medallions with spinach--incredibly fresh & tasty), view was gorgeous & we received a specialty cocktail (maracuya sour) on the house--que rico! Definitely recommend stopping in... More

I was staying in Hotel Casa de Playa and based on my research, Donde Teresa was only a short walk away. I decided to try it out for lunch and ended up being a real treat. Javier - the owner and cook - was there when I arrived and he was really friendly. I ordered the traditional ceviche (I'm not... More

I was so happy that I happened to be staying at a hotel that also had such a great restaurant! Especially since it rained the entire day making going into town something undesirable. For dinner I ordered the veggie/garlic/parmesan pasta and it was so tasty. That day for lunch I had the chicken milanese with mashed potatoes (big thanks for... More

Food here is delicious and restaurant is located right on the beach so gorgeous views. It's located out of Mancora in Pocitas so you don't have the noise and craziness of Mancora town.

Donde Teresa is a destination. Situated on the beach, about five kilometers south of Mancora, you must KNOW about it, otherwise you will hardly stumble upon it. I'd read about Donde Teresa's researching dining in Mancora. Simply put: Outstanding.We pulled up to the gated enclosure about 1 PM. I rang the bell and was buzzed in. After several "Holas," with...

Great restaurant on the beach, be careful of the night time bugs though. The food was good and the staff very friendly. The prices are also reasonable!

It is difficult for me to believe this restaurant is not in the top ten restaurants in or near Mancora. The location is fabulous, as is the food. We stayed at the Hotelier on the same property so ate here several times. Always enjoyed our meal and the view. Highly recommended!

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
