I don't have any regrets of this restaurant, it's a traditional restaurant you could find the real typical food anytime.. It's delicious. Go and enjoy with friends or family.

I went here for a dinner. Locals suggested to me this place to try their most famous fish - arapaima or as they cal it 'paiche'. You can eat a fish filet here for reasonable price and it's very tasty. I enter this place without any expectations because it didn't look something special, but at the end I was satisfied... More

Very tasty traditional style Iquitos food at local prices. Big meal and drink for under 15 soles. Well cooked food. Lots of fresh fish options. Also serve chicken, beef and pork. Friendly staff. Reasonable clean, open grill kitchen with quick/efficient service. Only open at night from 6pm.

We arrived at this restaurant somewhat late and they ran out of some dishes and drinks. But we were able to try other dishes from Iquitos and I thought everything was great.

Our mototaxi driver suggested this little place. When we got there, it was heaving with locals; always a good sign. The food was delicious. They serve freshly cooked chicken, fish, beef heart skewers, seafood and homemade sauces - all reasonably priced.

Let's be honest, this place doesn't look good at first sight but we're talking about food right? Food was good and the prices were ok, it's a good option if you're in Iquitos!

Blanquita just didn't work for us. Maybe our expectations were too high based on others reviews. We were very excited when we walked in. This is just the kind of place we like. Lots of locals and lots of energy. We ordered two different whole grilled fish. Both were very dried out and had been sitting around for a long... More

Don't judge a place for how it look like... it's an small place with a delicious regional food. In my humble opinion the 'Juane' with 'Gallina Regional' is one of the best dishes in this place and the 'Arroz Chaufa' is the worst (OK! it tastes nice but it's not really good!). Don't forget to taste 'ají charapita', they gives... More
