The yellow Rose of Texas is a well placed resto/bar in the center of Iquitos at the first block of Putumayo with a sidewalk terrace area, Some dishes were OK, the overall service is average to mediocre. Back in 2009, It used to be a popular gringo joint. Since then, it seems to struggle on meeting the price/quality service standards... More

The Yellow Rose is one of the better known restaurants around Iquitos. They have good food and many things on the menu you won't any where else. Gerald is a great person and very knowledgable about Iquitos. So you can enjoy a good meal and find much information about Iquitos while there. It's a wonderful place to meet and converse... More

This is a great little restaurant with an excellent variety of very affordable dishes, all served promptly and with a smile. Highly recommend for a quick snack when you are in Iquitos. There is also Ari's burgers nearby, but Yellow Rose has more comfortable seating and you can eat sitting outside.

The Yellow Rose is world renown as a main place for gringos to meet and eat. If looking for friends in the area, this is one of two places to find them. The staff will grab you off the street. The menu is a mix of western and local options.

we actually went upstairs to the Margaritaville sports bar with the same menu as the Yellow Rose downstairs. The food was great, the beer very cold and the service excellent. I would recommend it to anyone.

Having just finished in the jungle, myself and 2 friends were looking for a lively spot to watch the opening matches of the World Cup. This is definitely the place. Loads of screens, comfy chairs and a decent selection of local and imported beers. If you're looking for a place to catch a game then would definitely recommend here! The... More

This restaurant would be a better fit as a rest stop along an interstate. Lots of quirky decorations and americana. It doesn't fit in Iquitos but we were happy with the fact that they have an upstairs sports bar where we were able to catch the champions league football final. By reading the various notes the owner has posted on... More

We had a very nice lunch at Yellow Rose after returning from an excellent stay at the Explorama Lodge on the Napo river. While the huge menu included many North American dishes, the local dishes were excellent. Patarashca, fish cooked in banana leaves, was our favorite as was deep fried alligator appetizer. Recommended!

I have eaten at the Yellow Rose numerous times while in Iquitos. The food is always good and safe. I recommend the Lomo Saltado! Both the food and drink are safe to consume.
