Great Local Spot, Best Ceviche in Iquitos!

Went to Huasai with a big group, and was amazed at the ability of the staff and kitchen who handled it extremely well. The ceviche (only 15 Soles!) was full of fresh fish, strong and spicy (how I like it,) and came with yucca and potato. All things considered, it was one of the best ceviches I've... read more

This place is popular with locals for their breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and the price is right! Sandwiches are simple but good, and they have a nice lunch fixed-price

This restaurant is set about half a block away from the Plaza des Armas. It is mid-sized and air conditioned. At 12:30, the restaurant was sparsely attended. For 14 soles, you are given an entree, main, and drink. There are three entrees and a handful of mains, mostly pork, chicken, or fish dishes, with one vegetarian option. I ordered a... More

Nice place to have lunches in Iquitos. Just pay 13 soles for an appetizer, entree, and juice. Was a nice way to try some local food in Iquitos.

This is one of my favorite places to have lunch in Iquitos. The food is excellent and priced well. Fast friendly service and is Peruvian owned. I am fairly regular eating there. Highly recommended!!!

A tasty lunch at a very reasonable price, including a hug of fresh fruit juice. Need to get there early for lunch as often packed.

This place was located right next door to my hotel and on the next to last day, after being tired of breakfast at my hotel, I decided to have breakfast here. I was not disappointed and wished I had breakfast here each day in Iquitos. I would go out on a limb and say it is the best breakfast place... More

I went here various times. For breakfast they offer tasty sandwiches with various options. The juice-variety is not that big, but tasty. For lunch they offer a menu for 13 Soles with a drink included and optional dessert. You can choose between three options for starter and four options for the man plate and there is a vegetarian option. The... More

If you want real Amazonian, not-super-touristy food, GO HERE! 13 solas por almuerzo!!! 13 solas for lunch! Juice, appetizer, tons of food. Will feed you for the day. It was perfect. Can be crowded at times because it is so good, so go early. The service is fast and efficient. SO GOOD!
