Best coffee in Iquitos! Clean and cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and free wi-fi. It was a nice oasis of flavor after returning from the jungle.

The best European style food, breads and coffee in the Amazon jungle city of Iquitos. This would be a great restaurant anywhere in Europe and here it is in the middle of the Amazon. Fantastic menu choices every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, great food with wonderful views and atmosphere set in a beautiful surroundings. One can order from... More

We had a very nice lunch here, thought like most food in Iquitos I suppose, it wasn't anything special. They have a fixed price menú for lunch as well as an extensive menu of sandwiches and other heavier options. Reasonably priced. I can't speak to the breakfast or coffee, which is what most people here seem to rave about, but... More

There was a lot on the menu and a great choice of drinks as well. Good safe food after you have been in the amazon or on the road eating stranger things. Price is too high for what you get but nice relaxing surroundings.

What can be said about the Bistro- It's a time-capsule to a classy Parisian cafe, complete with cappuccinos and chocolate croissants (yes, they are amazing,) yet situated on the banks of the Amazon. To simply find a well made espresso drink in Peru is enough of a challenge, let alone a real, fresh croissant- the Bistro offers both, plus a... More

This is my pick for best in Iquitos. It's how I start my day. A lovely atmosphere located on the quiet section of the riverfront, the Bistro serves the best coffee in town. Their in-house baguettes are amazing (make sure they don't overtoast!), and since I was last here they have started offering croissants (both regular and chocolate, also made... More

Great food and coffee! I've had breakfast, brunch, snack, lunch and dinner at Amazon Bistro, and I've been there for drinks too, at different hours in different occasions and have never been disappointed. For me, it's still my favorite place to eat out when tired of local food. Price/quality wise, hard to beat, sure you can compare with food you've... More

This restaurant is rated number 1 on trip advisor- and I don't necessarily disagree, but considering this, and the fact that it's not cheap, I had expectations. I drink a lot of coffee: The coffee grinder was set far too hot, and the beans burnt- such an easy problem to change! My english breakfast was very good- considering its very... More

I've happily eaten here quite a few times, perhaps ten so far, and everything has been quite good, the place is old world lovely inside and has a few pleasant outside tables overlooking the Amazon. Friday night the French onion soup was authentic and among the best I've ever had (quite a lot. Fridays only, Saturdays if some is left).... More
