I have lived outside of Iquitos for around 14 - 15 years. And traveled there since 1996. For my day time eating this restaurant is #1 on my list. Excellent food, good prices, excellent service and great view of the Amazon jungle and the river Itaya. While there jump on the boat at the huecuito and go visit the village Tamshiyacu. You won't be disappointed.

It is an OK restaurant with a lot to choose from, including fish. Nevertheless I would not say that it fully justifies their prices. You get a feeling that there is some pretension to be a top-end restaurant but food and service still need to be improved. Good view of the river.

Typical Iquitos/Jungle food but done pretty well--a step up from the majority. Service is better than average in Iquitos and the views of the river are quite nice. You can eat outside or inside with air conditioning. Lots of glass to look over the river.

Popped in here for lunch and was so glad we did. The fish was outstanding, the heart of palm - jungle spaghetti - was amazing, as was everything else we ate. The dinning room sits overlooking the river and the views and breeze are beautiful! A must if you are in Iquitos.

We had lunch here twice and the food is very good and we enjoyed watching the river while we ate. The fish was the best but we also had the pork which was also very tasty.
