Food is delicious and portions are big. They have a large selection of dishes and the fruit juices are amazing! Nice decoration and lively music, good spot for a couple of drinks. Cocktails are good but not great.

There is a nice USA country feel here. The staff have nice matching uniforms and are polite as well as welcoming. The menu is extensive, I order steamed veggies for my aya retreat. Which were cooked fine and yes you can very well get this wrong. It's a bit pricy but most western style restaurants are here.

Had cocktails here on our arrival in Iquitos and decided to return for lunch the next day before our cruise. The menu is extensive and includes both local and Texas favorites. We had local fare and enjoyed it. The prices were reasonable. We happened to be sitting next the owner and founder, a former UT Longhorns baseball star. Since we're... More

The best thing about this place are the waitresses they are fun and a barrel of laughs especially if you can speak some spanish. The food is over priced and not as good compared to other places in iquitos.

I had initially avoided this restaurant as the exterior to me looked very tacky and I assumed that the food would be over-priced. However, I decided to try it out with two friends after a number of people we met, including Peruvians, recommended it. Indeed, the restaurant is fantastic. While service is not the best, the food is excellent and... More

I love the upstairs couches and seating, food is very good, waitresses are always checking to make sure you're ok. Upstairs doesn't open until 4 pm though but worth the wait!

Visited June 2, 2016 and we enjoyed the wonderful variety of food and atmosphere. Huge fried alligator bite with yucca, heavenly chicken soup and escabeche de pollo. For my picky daughter, American fried chicken and papa fritas. Server was very attentive and accommodating, bringing more of the wonderful hot sauce and recommending the lemon pie. Excellent spot to cool off... More

This was the go to place for me when I was out late or early in the morning and most other places were closed. Great environment and food! They have a large, varied menu.
