Excellent regional food!!

Maybe the place it´s not a fancy restaurant, but the quality of the regional food they serve there worth it... cheap and good.

Don't judge a place for how it look like... it's an small place with a delicious regional food. In my humble opinion the 'Juane' with 'Gallina Regional' is one of the best dishes in this place and the 'Arroz Chaufa' is the worst (OK! it tastes nice but it's not really good!). Don't forget to taste 'ají charapita', they gives... More

ENGLISH: Tipical regional cuisine, one of my favourit places to eat dinner in Iquitos. It's a great place to take your friends and newcomers for the full experience. It's simple and clean, the portions are well served and the service is friendly. A must for anyone living or visiting Iquitos. ESPAÑOL: La tipica comida regional loretana, siempre fué uno de...

Perhaps more oriented to local customers it is not a touristical place, but very recommendable. Wide offer of "Juane" and other local dishes. The only negative point for me is they don't have dessert.

Came here for dinner following the good reviews. Since it was one of my first days in Iquitos I was not aware that fish tends to be rather uninteresting everywhere you go. The juane de yuca was very good. I guess the review would be more positive if I would have chosen meat.

Great place to try local jungle specialties. Clean restaurant setting that is less intimidating than trying to score a plate of food at the Belen or Nanay markets, but still a very local establishment with Spanish-only menu. I'm a sucker for anything cooked in a leaf, so it's hard for me to resist their multiple leaf-ed offerings. I like the... More

For 30 cents, you will have the best tamale you will ever have!!!! Truly local, no English menu, I wish I learned some Spanish before coming here because we had a big problem of ordering the same fish dish that other tables are ordering. Other than the language barrier, good food! Their jerky (cecina) is a bit on the salty... More

I wish we had gone here *after* we had learned more (and tasted more) of the local food (what juanes are, for instance) instead of before. Even so, it may not be to everyone’s taste. This is truly a local haunt without an English menu or English-speaking waitstaff, and the food, while interesting, is simple and unadorned, and there is... More
