The burgers were tasty and not too big. They had an electronic menu in 3 languages which made it easy to order. The menu was reasonably priced and the restaurant has great ambiance. What more could you want?

Lovely to sit outside as there are a few tables on the pavement. The portions were very generous. Especially loved the doncella fish dish. Nice service.

Had the urge for a cheeseburger, these folks came thru for me. Great people watching along the malecon. They say there are Belgium beers, maybe so, but I didn't see them.

In the last two years this has become my favourite place to eat in Iquitos: breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is a good range with a sort of French/Belgium bistro feel.

Excellent location on the malecon (preferred spot for the 'gringo' bars in Iquitos) the Amazon Bistro is nicely furnished/decorated over two floors (upstairs is hotter) and has a good screen downstairs to watch sports and other programmes. There is a pretty unique menu for this town (smoked salmon club sandwich anyone ?) which doesn't always deliver quite as advertised but... More

They have a good international selection and the place itself is wonderful, service is good. We went there twice, but boy, the spaghetti and meatball at the second visit was... I must say, really not that great. The burger I think was the safest choice. There were couple other dishes that were ok. I think it was the sausage with... More

This is personally mine and many of my friends favorite place to eat in Iquitos. You can get a good, actual coffee. The food is more expensive but it tastes great. There is also upstairs and outdoor seating options. Very clean. There's also a cat that comes and hangs out with you (or steals your seat to nap in).

Calme place with delicious food. You can choose international food and have a great calme relax time seeing the river (second floor).

I waited over half an hour for a crappy, dry burger on a stale bun and then another 5 minutes for ketchup to make the stale, dry fries palatable. Disappointed.

Great place offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great service also has limited outdoor seating. Nice ambience. Real expresso - a hard thing to find in Iquitos. I especially like the American breakfast with an omelette with cheese, ham mushrooms on onions served with fresh baguette toast. For lunch or dinner the Campesino Burger with cheese and bacon including a side... More
