The food here is just absolutely top class and a great variety of the lesser known Peruvian dishes. Don't worry, because it's a little bit upmarket doesn't mean you'll get less on your plate - the portions are large just the way Peruvians love it. Yes, this is a popular attraction with tourists but people come back for more if... More

We loved this restaurant and went back a second night and had two of the same things. We loved the paiche patarashca, the sudado de gamitana and the ensalada de chontas. For food of this quality and finesse we did not think it overpriced, in fact we felt it was extraordinary value for money. Only problem is we are now... More

If you go there you have no choice but trying their EXCELENT Patarashca. This dish freshly prepared will make travel around an explosion of spices and the fresh fish. Great food (a bit expensive) very fresh but the service was a bit dissapointed. I was welcomed by a smily guy who explained to me the dish and gave some suggestions.However,... More

Title pretty much covers it. We ordered a mixed grill plate including several of the local meat varieties. The food was average at best. Our waiter was good and the drinks reasonably stiff, still nothing really to go out of one's way for.

We went in group of 8 people, as soon as we came we ordered as we knew what we wanted, I had to buy something so walked 3 block to the supermarket and took a while shopping and walking back (not least than 30 min), still when I came back no food was served and just started serving after another...

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.

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 an alarm clock, but even... More

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
