The map is wrong

I ate for dinner and the the guacamole and garlic bread, a falafel, and ice green tea. Everything was good and I enjoyed it. The map is wrong though. The restaurant is right by the plaza de armas. The map places it 5 blocks away from the plaza.

I ordered the chicken noodle soup and bread, after an Aya retreat this food was amazing, fresh not over seasoned and very wholesome. The decor is great and I love the artwork and colourful masks on the walls. It's the perfect chill out space.

Really nice place to have dinner right in the center of Iquitos main square. We tried the currys and they were excellent, the place also had live music which was nice. Overall a very good experience

They have the best green iced tea I've ever had! Went back just for the tea and also got dinner. If you're looking for something tasty and not Peruvian this is the place to go. The atmosphere is relaxed and sometimes they have live music.

I went here several times while in Iquitos Peru. Lots of locals and people from around the planet. They support an artist that somehow puts on paper what you experience when you experience Ayahuasca. His prints are not cheap however in a nutshell his prints somehow relates what you experienced during your journey with ayahuasca

I have been going to the karma Cafe since it originally opened when Stacey was the owner. The food, service and laid back atmosphere has not changed. It is a gem of a place with fantastic food, great live music and incredible art work throughout. They make wonderful authentic Indian and Thai curries as well as great sandwiches. Attention to...

This was our favorite hangout spot in Iquitos by far. They have great food for all diets (and some amazing Thai food I had been craving for months!) and the staff all speak English. Free wifi and a great, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend it!

One of the best nights of my life. Went here with new friends I had met on a shamanic retreat. Coffee was excellent. A great little place to pop into on a late night. Warm and friendly atmosphere. If you want to hang out and listen to local music or people watch, this is the place to do it. Visited... More
