Good comfort food Big portions!

After spending 5 days at a resort in the Amazon my boyfriend and I wanted a break from the more traditional Peruvian food. We also wanted more comfort food and hopefully larger portions.

This place will lure you in with signs that say "air conditioning" and "organic foods fresh daily". Don't buy it. My boyfriend and I came here to get a break from all of the amazing Peruvian food and have some home style comfort food. That's not what this is. The food is not even what is advertised on the menu.... More

I went there for breakfast and had a hard time deciding! Went for the french toast which was Texas Size bread, smelled of cinnamon, with lots of brown sugar. For me it was a little sweet, but very tasty. I couldn't finish it all! If you are hungry, try it!

I travel to Iquitos 1-2 times a year and have eaten at the Yellow Rose easily over 100 times including last week. The food is one of the best places for consistently good food with exceptional portions. It might be a tiny bit more expensive than some of the other tourist oriented places, but the portions are significant and you... More

Outdoor seating, huge menu... Off the main road in the city centre this restaurant is a good place to sit, read, write, people watch... Quiet place to sit early in the morning... Nice wait staff, huge menu. A mix of Perúvian and North American food.

We travel a lot with our three kids and, every now and then, they need a "comfort food" type menu. This is a good joint for comfort, both in terms of the dishes as well as in terms of the ambiance. It's a funky/eclectic mix of Texas, NoLo, and other north Americana. Menu is very broad, with many choices, but... More
