This place has an amazing menu with a lot of variety, including an Ayahuasca menu! The atmosphere is great, only surpassed by the food and it’s presentation. One of the nicer restaurants in Iquitos by far! 🙏💜🌎

I am sad to write this as I love the place and I have eaten there a good few times now, always with pleasure. Because of this I didn't hesitate to book a "once off" meal there as the (fixed)menu promised exciting and adventurous food...More

20+ soles for a small salad is quite ridiculous considering what it was....plain pasta with a few super bland veggies on top. I understand the ayahuasca diet excludes many seasonings, but you can still make tasty dishes. The juices looked nice, but are expensive too,...More

Karma Cafe was a great find in Iquitos. The Cafe is nicely located near to the waterside and other tourist bars and cafes. The food was great. Ingredients are fresh and food is made to order. The Cafe is "tourist friendly" with familiar food and...More
