The food was outstanding but probably one of the more expensive restaurants in Tarapoto. We had Paiche (big fresh water fish specific to the Amazon area) dishes, fried, in Passion fruit sauce and grilled. Fried bananas were with each dish. We also had Chontas Salad - from inside a tree. Juanes is another very special dish they had.The juane usually... More

This place has a very nice view and the food is great. My friend and I keep coming here for many days during our 10 day trip in Tarapoto, even at night. Because food was great, at a fair price and service was tops, 100% recommended!!!

Although the restaurant is not well maintained, the location has a great view. Some trash on the floor. The soft drinks were OK not the greatest. The food was good. Fish had a lot of fish-bones. The surrounding areas are a bit sketchy if you are deciding to go walking!!!

This is a typical amazonic restaurant. It has a nice view but the food was better. Also the size of the dishes are smaller than before. Finally, its food os not as tasty as it was years ago. Hope they improve.

The first lunch in 2016 we had in La Collpa. We went to several restaurants around town and they have the fastest service ever and affordable prices. The cebiche de paiche was the best!

I suggest you to go for lunh or early souper. The view is amazing! I ordered the Paiche,river fish uniue of the amazonian side and I was greatly surprised. It was a fresh and very generous dish. It is served with a white souce since it is a dry meat fish.

We came to Collpa twice during our brief stay in Tarapoto, mostly due to the restaurant's ambiance and view. Most of the restaurant is open air and it looks out onto a huge hill covered in [what looked to me like] native flora and some local settlements/their small farms. The food was pretty good too, but on the pricey side.... More
