Was recommended this restaurant by a friend and was not disappointed. Our server was great and the food was quick and the drinks were delicious!

I was welcomed at the door by Eric. A man of charm and and excellence. The service was flawless. I ordered a burrito and exceeded all other burritos of my life by quite a stretch! Also I was told tonight it was 2-4-1 and they...have kindly offered to wrap my second (though I’m at the table debating whether or not to go for round 2!) the atmosphere oozes with chilled, bohemian, vibes and my cocoa tail is outstanding too. Quite possibly my favourite restaurant in Peru. Many many thanks to Wric and all the wonderful staff! Top drawer stuff!More

We went twice and the 1st time no one even attended us despite we waited on the table for more tan 15 mins (and the place was not even crowded!). The 2nd time it took them 45 mins to bring the order and the Nachos...we ordered for entries came last. Instead of burritos we received something like crêpes with little protein (we ordered both chicken and beef... And veggies) and beans and rice. Onions were tasty thought. In a country where customer service is so poor unless you are attended by Venezuelan staff, this one was even poorer.More

Highly recommend. Really awesome service from Eric and the team. We were a party of eight and everyone enjoyed their meal. We had a mix of burritos, nachos, tuna, steak and fajitas.

BBQ ribs were just one piece with loads of bone and cartilage. Soggy fries. Pork dry and not good. I had worse but for Peru seriously bad!

The Borrito was average and i woke up with stomach pains. Mancora is a dirty place, quality is few and far between.

I like the hidden location of this restorant. Nice to be away from the main road. Nice atmosphere and good service. Burritos is very tasty.

This is still some of the best TexMex I've had in Peru after all of these years. It's also fun to find such an out-of-the-way place that feels like a delicious secret for those who know. I had a chicken burrito this time that met...all of my expectations.More

A Tex-Méx food, never disappoints. Every time I go back to Máncora I take my mototaxi for S/ 3.00 soles and spent couple hours to this restaurant.

Despite some of the negative comments on here, my boyfriends and I decided to try out the mexi restaurant. We shared the burrito and I am honestly blown away. Best burrito I have ever had. Very flavoursome and quite big. Also the best mojito ever...if you don't like the pungent taste of alcohol in strong ones.More
