This gourmet restaurant, right at the beach, is run by Javier. He learned from his mom, the TV Chef and legend Teresa Ocampo who was the first female chef to have a TV Show (What Will I Cook?) for over 30 years. Teresa taught many home chefs the basic ingredients that must be in every dish: ‘Love! Cook with Love’.
Her son Javier certainly continues the family’s culinary tradition; he surely loves to cook with love! The refined menu of traditional and modern Peruvian dishes is his tribute to the legacy of his mom.
Advice: Allow yourself some time to take in the menu card. You will surely find that you would like to order more than can be eaten.
I had a hard time choosing one thing. Every dish seems to come in different variations. There are four ceviches and the tuna comes in a variety of ways: carpaccio, tartar, sashimi, steak, or have it as a hamburger. Wow!
Having trouble choosing which causa to order?
A day at the beach is not complete without ice cream, and at Donde Teresa they serve big scoops of artisanal ice cream. Have your pick of two flavors for S/12, including classic vanilla or exotics like algarrobina and lúcuma chips ice cream.
The cocktails and the good wine selection are good reasons on their own to stay at the affiliated hotel, Hotelier Arte & Cocina. Enjoy the food and the booze at Donde Teresa and have no need to drive or be in a moto-taxi afterwards.
