I've been to Fitzcarraldo a couple of times - once in 2013, once in 2014. The Ceviche and other regional dishes are very good. The atmosphere is good, and can provide you with an escape from the business of Iquitos. It's a fine place, and I will dine there again. It's not a regular hangout for me, perhaps because it...

I stumbled upon Fitzcarraldo because it was the only restaurant that was still open passed 10:30pm on the riverfront. The portion were big, the refresher drink was tasty, the view of the lively river front at night was inviting, and service was prompt. Overall decent experience.

Not bad at all but not sure why there is so much hype about this being one of the best restaurants in Peru. We were the only customers and I got a local fish dish which was good but expensive. My sister got pizza which was inexpensive but bland. Much quieter than Karma cafe which is why we choose. I'd... More

It has a good menu with international and national food. There’s great fish variety. Some of the international dishes like Italian pastas are very poor though. It has great views over the Itaya river and the malecón.

We ate twice at this location. First I ordered a pizza which is quite inexpensive but was on a preformed platform (not sure what else to call the dough) with adequate toppings. Would not order it again. Other meals were OK and the limonade is recommended. There is an airconditioned section.

Chose this spot out of convenience and based on location. Service was pretty average and food was decent. Nothing crazy spectacular but a good option. Also has tables with A/C inside which is nice for when you're still adjusting to the Iquitos humidity.

We were a large group and we enjoyed the most delicious fish, a kind of catfish I believe, called dorado. We had a choice of hearts of palm or caprese salad, which I had - very good. I was so delighted to find my favorite tropical juice offered here, sweet/tart jugo de arazat! We had smiling, patient servers and our... More

Food ordinary, beer very expensive by local standards. We had a pizza which came with a soggy crust and not much topping other than an overkill of mozzarella. Definitely one of the poorer eateries in the immediate area.

Went in a party of 9 people for dinner. Menu mostly local fish, which was freshly prepared,and truly delicious. Conveniently situated on waterfront. Service excellent, very patient and friendly. Recommend to us by a local, and I would thoroughly recommend it.

This place was recommended to us by several people our first night in Iquitos for local fare. On that front, it didn't disappoint (though I think I will make it a point to never eat suri again, I had to try them once). The food was fresh, well prepared, and tasty. Service however, couldn't have been more lackluster and disinterested.... More
