Loving everything about La Patarashcha!

My friends and I have stayed at La Patarashca several times. We love the food at the cafe and the restaurant, the kind staff, and the breezy rooms. This hotel is not the fanciest, but is very tranquil and in the heart of Tarapoto. My only complaint is that the parrots can sometimes substitute for... read more

If you're looking for a good restaurant to taste jungle food, this is your choice in Tarapoto. This is the best Tacacho con Cecina I've had in my life, and the Grape Juice is just amazing.

Expensive for what it is and although teh setting is nice it lacks a bit of charm as table very far apart. The food was OK. You can savour amazonian food but it is certainly not gourmet and service is VERY slow.

I had dinner here one night I really enjoyed the local food. I had their signature dish and it was really delicious! It's a very pretty restaurant with a great open patio feel upstairs. The waitress I had was a little bit non existent and no the friendlest of person ever come across, but that would be the only negative.... More

Good prices, really nice plates and generous portions. The staff was helpful and well mannered but management could hire an extra person to help. Nice location too.

I had read about La Patarashca but didn't expect the food to be so good. The whole family enjoyed the patarashca with "langostinos", and different types of "tacachos". The prices, compared to restaurants in Lima, were low. Not to be missed if you enjoy food and love to try local options.

This is probably the best place to 'land' in Tara (tarapoto). Not only it preserves the rainforest 'feeling' to it (not as other thousand places that want to pretend to be 'urban' when one wants nature while visiting the rainforest.... but it is actually part of a family run business including a small rainforest style hotel (now with a nice...

I ate a lovely patarashca de doncella (local river fish). Perfectly cooked and well seasoned sauce/juice. Our waiter and the young woman at the entrance were very friendly and welcoming. Great atmosphere also. Best dining experience in Tarapoto of our 3 days stay.
