To those who have a problem with this wonderful local place I can only think that you are part of the "new Village" Mancora is The restaurant for the rest of us, those of us who want good food served by a very genuine staff. Food is great and the atmosphere is real. That will scare off some of the reviewers but these are the people who feel that they had an "Italian" experience if they went to an Italian Rest.

I was leery of coming here after reading the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had the Tamalito De Pollo and the shrimp ceviche. Both were quite good. The mojito was a little sweet for me (or maybe they are just too sweet in general?). The wait and bar staff were very friendly and attentive. Even though the place was packed (it was a Thursday night), the service was very good. The decor is cozy; the prices reasonable. I wouldn't mind coming back to try the brunch.

Came here for the lunch special. Not so good...food was bland and of poor quality. As inexpensive as it is, there are better options in the neighborhood.

Ive been to Mancora about three times now and I really enjoy the food! My only complaint is that they do not serve any peruvian wine. I dont understand how this restaurant serves Chilean wine but nothing from their own country. I go to other peruvian restaurants and they make sure to offer authentic peruvian wine to their customers. Delicious food but a glass of Peru's finest wine would be fantastic!! The pisco sour is excellent as well!

The only good thing you'll get here is the Spanish language. Everything is pre frozen accept for a few vegetables. And the only Peruvian you'll find here are the names of the dishes, that's all.

I have never been in a Peruvian restaurant that serve you a Papa Rellena the size of a lime and that the Relleno is 25 raisins and no meat, I have never had a tamal that I had to eat it with a spoon cause it was like arroz con leche an on top of the unappetizing taste meat was place outside of it like a topping, totally not Peruvian at all, the Arroz Chaufa was actually with so much Sesame oil that I was under the impression that I was in a Japanese or Chinese restaurant. When they bring the grill meats to the table they have to open the door cause they bring the plate to your table on a hot plate that causes smoke in the whole restaurant, Worst of all the Anticucho was 4 dollar coin size pieces of the meat with no taste at all and it was not even grill it was boil. This is not a Peruvian Restaurant at all don't let them fool you.

Can't comment on the service or atmosphere as I haven't been in. Tried to order delivery and they won't go half a block below Houston on Norfolk. They will go to C or 3rd avenues however. I would think they (and many other local restaurants) would be willing to compromise a bit more as long as the distance is the same or less. so fed up after so many years of dealing with this.
