If you are vegetarian and traveling, you know how hard it is to find food! Even if you arent Vegetarian this restuarant offers great HEALTHY and Fresh Food! The culture in Iquitos seemed driven a lot by meats and fish and I, for one, dont feel comfortable supporting the meat industry in any country. The owner told us that she... More

It's hard to find vegetarian meals in Iquitos.. We came here after a day in the city and I'm glad I did. It's a tiny, low key restaurant and the lady who runs it is so sweet. She said that nobody local will eat there because people don't want to eat food without meat. There wasn't a menu, she just... More

There are very few vegetarian restaurants in Iquitos, and I've been to them all. The Happy Cow web site is a good resource to find the other two that I know about here in Iquitos. This is the best one, taking everything into consideration. The price in December 2012 is 10 soles for the meal of the day. It isn't... More

El Rinconcito Vegetariano (The Vegetarian Hydeaway) is by far the best vegetarian restaurant in Iquitos! And not just because it is the only one! You will find it at Jirón San Martín 169, just off of Prospero. A menu (soup and main course, with a salad and a glass of refresco) is just 10 soles, but they also have a... More

This is such a wonderful restaurant. Be prepared to be nourished on EVERY level. The food is amazing, and the family who owns this amazing little restaurant have stolen my heart forever. They quickly became family, opening their arms to everyone who enters and making sure to fill everyones stomachs and hearts with the most nourishment

The family of owners are very sweet people, and the food reflects it. Everything is made carefully, and the prices are even super low. A friend of mine who ate there with us recently said their food even tasted better than the most expensive restaurant in town. Our favorite dishes are the seitan hamburger, which we always ask for doubled... More

This little restaurant opened in January 2012, run by a friendly Seventh-Day-Adventist family. To my knowledge, it is the only vegetarian oasis in this jungle city of 400,000. The set lunch (8 soles/US$3) includes soup, a choice of entree (usually with rice), and a cool fruit drink. You can also order off the menu, which includes veggie burgers, salads, sandwiches,...
