As the old saying goes "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me". Managed to wait for food for over 2 hours not once but TWICE in this place, the first time 3.5 hours for satay chicken kebabs - a pretty simple dish that should take no longer than 15 minutes. While the food is VERY... More

Yes it is a touristy place, yes it's not super cheap but it's also not that expensive, especially not for what you get. We ate different salads (great!), veggie and normal burgers (tasty and huuge) and the red curry (unfortunately quite disappointing). The crowd hanging around there is definitely 'different', very hippie and there was often live music taking away... More

Good food although my steak was slightly underdone, it was tasty and the beer was cold. Not very busy and in a convenient location to the centre of town.

The Karma Cafe is a cool place, the food is very tasty and has a nice atmosphere. The crowd is mostly people in town to do ayahuasca at one of the centers in or near Iquitos. The hummus is tasty, very good guacamole, and nice satay. They also have a menu for the ayahuasca diet. Juices are generous and tasty.... More

Like the Dawn of the Amazon its very tourists friendly and priced as such. You'll find mostly tourists in here although the staff don't speak English like DoTA, so better take a spanish speaker with you if you're not conversant. Some of the menu is better than others. I would avoid anything with fries anywhere in Iquitos because they use... More

This is a good place to hide out from the craziness of Iquitos. Chill vibe, friendly staff, decent food. I haven't been so crazy about some of the more ambitious menu items but the salads and toasted sandwiches are reliably yummy (the karma salad and the toasted mozzarella/tomato sandwich are my faves). The couches are pretty uncomfortable - why so... More
