Was recommended this place by somebody who knew the area well. It is interesting and reflects the owners personality but the food was bland and relatively expensive. Did not bother to go back again.

A group of us (10 people), showed up for dinner. We ordered our food and waited a long time for it to be served, which happened at very different times for each person. I ordered what I thought would probably be the best dish in the house, definitely one of the more expensive, the "fillet mignon charcoal". I expected it... More

We ate here twice and enjoyed it both times. We didn't find the food that expensive and the service was good. It is a quirky and interesting restaurant in a convenient location.

Horrible food and way too expensive. We couldn't even eat what we ordered. We met the owner on a previous visit and he was so racist. I'm not sure why we ate here except that it had air conditioning.

I went everyday to this restaurant, it is 24/7 Restaurant. Waiters doesn't speak English and they take too long to get your food on your table even when there's no people there. I do like better the Bar Second floor. Food is Ok. No great food, but you can get better drinks here.

We ate here one night just to try something different than the other places we'd been going and it was pretty disgusting. I couldn't actually eat mine, and I never not eat food. I had to get a snack on the way home. I wouldn't mind but for Iquitos it was pretty expensive too. Service was fine, but that can't... More

The food is is so-so. By the time mine got to me, it was cold. I had to ask the waitress to go check on it so I could get it. They couldn't take my AmEx for some unknown reason. The waitresses all pretend, or actually do not know, English. Service is very slow. This place may be OK to... More

I think this place attracts a lot of foreigners because it's right on the plaza. However the food and service are terrible. There are definitely better places to eat in Iquitos so you shouldn't need to go here ever really!

This restaurant is easy to find just off the plaza and near the river. The restaurant has a lot of very good reviews and we would agree with those reviews. We ate at this restaurant several times and always had great food and excellent service. On one visit , my wife told our server (and we are so SORRY we... More

If you like giving money to an old racist leftover from the oil days.......Gerald is the guy. He is known in town as the evil guy who pokes starving kids with needles.... to shoo them away from his restaurant...... which illegally takes up the entire public sidewalk. It gets better as he has 3 seperate law suits against him for... More
