Nice friendly place
I’ve had better Paella. The Red sangria tasted like medicine. The margarita was much better (I tasted my daughter’s). The waiter was not very attentive and took a while to ask if we needed anything.
Great ceviche and lomo saltado. Service was spotty. The Peruvian rice pudding was the worst I've ever had. Stay away from it.
Excellent, authentic Peruvian cuisine. Highly recommended!
Quiet, corner restaurant. Unpretentious decor. Hearty food. Good value. Nice windows onto Avenue First.
Small place. Big plates and worth the price. Just not the best Peruvian cuisine. The steak was okay, the rice was terrible. Probably won’t be back.
IT took 45minutes to get our drinks. There was one waiter for the whole restaurant. The ceviche was good but the rest of the food was not what we expected, seafood rice (was tomato sauce and barboiled rice with seafood thown in top) and the salmon dish was too well done and mashed potatoes where boxed mashed potatoes mix with green food coloring).
The pisco sour was good.
Food was not great , very simple no flavor which is hard to do cause is Peruvian and they have a lot flavor in their food. But not this place, I don't think I will ever visit again.
Great food and drinks! Did I say great food!
This restaurant was better 4yrs ago. Maybe they changed chefs, I don't know. But I remember the food was much better and they had more sangria choices. Also, the new bar with the disco lights is kind of tacky. I liked it better when they remained somewhat authentic to a Peruvian restaurant.
Since I've eaten here before and have had good experiences, I'm guessing this night was an off night? Service was horrendous. Was seated at a table without any place setting. My boyfriend ordered before me as I wasn't ready but the waiter never came back to get my order. Other tables were given plantain chips but not us. It was a very bad experience.
It was closed!!!!! How can I make a reservation, have it confirmed and then show up to a totally closed restaurant? This was among friends, but I use open table to book for work all the time, and this would have been super embarrassing in a professional setting. Would love to know how this happened.
We had a huge party for the place 15 people and they were able to accommodate us. The food was great. having two vegetarian entree options at a Peruvian place was unexpected and much appreciated. The plantain chips at the table were delicious. When one person in our party's food took longer than everyone else's to come out of the kitchen, they made it right with a free drink for him. We really appreciated the service and had an amazing time there. The desserts are amazing btw, the chocolate empanadas are a must try.
From the dishes that I had (ceviche mancora, anticuchos, seco de cordero) they did not taste as good as they could have. The food is not bad but it does not live up to the flavor of Peruvian cuisine. Ceviche is usually made with corvina no red snapper and you should ask if the table wants with aji or without ají. The seco was good but everything else was average. The service was good and the pisco sour was very good. A note on the anticucho is that it came out a little cold and it was a very thing piece of cow heart which usually anticuchos are a bit thicker.
Amazing Ceviches, we really enjoy them, Mancora and Classic one. Mancora Ceviche was delicious. Pisco Sour also very good, expensive but good.
We were on Saturday nigh to had dinner and it was very noise, maybe during the week is less noisy.
The worst Peruvian food I've ever had.
Great food, cheap and high Quality Seafood . Very good!!!!!!!!
This visit the yuca wasnt on point and the food wasnt as amazing as always but usually I love this place. Mainly the prices are great and the staff treats me like family each time I go. They always are accommodating and they have a great happy hour!
If you are craving Peruvian it's a good spot. A little rough around the edges in terms of cleanliness (bathroom) and service was a bit hit or miss, but overall it's a unique, authentic spot.
My favorite nabe. Modest surroundings, but delicious and nicely presented dishes. And a terrific staff.
Wonderful and authentic Peruvian food. Brought back happy memories of my trip to Peru last summer.
Celebrated a friend's birthday here, and with 14 people that is often challenging to pull off in the East Village. Mancora was more than accommodating, and we had a great wait staff that was patient with us as we continued to order tapas to the table. Food was above average - nothing amazing, but very good - and it allowed us to enjoy and have a great time with all of our friends. Additionally, I appreciated that the restaurant allowed our party to be seated in waves; we had people coming from all over and it was nice to be able to ease into the evening as opposed to having to wait for the entire party before being seated.
All in all, a very positive experience. Definitely would go again with a large group.
This is one of our favorite spots in the East Village. We've been here many times with friends for brunch, dinner with families, and happy hour with coworkers. Great food, service, and value for food and drinks.
Mancora is my favorite nabe, but I recommend it to everyone from any area. Delicious food, friendly and efficient service, and a homey ambience.
Excellent service; very good atmosphere though loud, and comfortable food
Wish the AC was better!
Great value for the money! I would go again. Really nice atmosphere where the French doors being open and a nice breeze blowing in.
Mancora is my favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. The service is friendly, unpretentious and highly efficient. All things taken into consideration, Mancora is a real gem.
Food was just ok service needs much improvement
Five people had a get together. There was a varied menu which allowed everyone to enjoy what they wanted. The sangria was very good. The service was excellent, however the noise level was high.
