If you want to taste a good exotic food from this region, this restaurant is the best you can find in the city. Good food and drink are available from Monday to Saturday. They do not open on Sunday.

If you are looking for authentic local food this is the place to go. The restaurant was recommended by three separate friends who are from Iquitos and I can see why. This place was packed with locals but had fast and efficient turnaround so we...More

This is the best place where you can have local dishes. I loved the cecina (bacon) with patacones (fried plantain). Camucamu juice is also the best drink you can ever have.

We liked this place. We were the only tourists there. Very reasonably priced. Head's up, all the food is brown, fried, and/or steamed. Lots of yucca and plantains. It was pretty salty but tasted good. Juice was delicious.

A very popular and therefore jammed place with local folk, Blanquita's specializes in local dishes and does a very good job with them. It's a bit out of the way from the tourist district, not within walking distance, but a kidney-jouncing ride in a moto-taxi...More
