The uniqueness of this restaurant is that it is in the Itaya River. Arrival necessitates a short boat ride. The embarkation point has a number of steps to get to the boat, but there are handrails, which were helpful. The boat is a good size...and provides life jackets. The ride is just a few minutes. The restaurant itself has a first and second floor and an area around a small pool. The pool requires spending Sol 60. The food is beautifully presented and the service is excellent. There is a good variety of menu choices. The fish was delicious.More

They don't answer the phone for reservations and when they eventually do they hang up on you.. Also say it is smoking and it is not. Nowhere in the entire place (all of which is outdoors) can you smoke.

Once we arrive with boat we are told we can not come even near swimming pool with our kid, and that was main purpose of visit. They claim it is government rule which is bshit. So we get overpriced food and forced service charge and...they demand a tip on top of that, after waiting half an hour to do the payment. First and last time.More

this is a good restaurant to go out for a meal, it is a floating restaurant with a swimming pool and great river views, the meals are nicely prepared and a free boat takes people there and back

The emphasis here is on fish (the restaurant is moored offshore in the River Itaya), Which was the reason for my fourth visit in as many years. Only to be told that the fish was off - apart from for cebiche - for reasons which...were wholly unconvincing. The grading given above is therefore extremely generous but of course the ambience is outstanding, particularly at night looking back to the lights of the city. Service was courteous and swift. Notes for visitors: Take the restaurant ferry boat from the embarkation point at 138 Avenida La Marina and know that a minimum spend of S/.60 per head Is required (easily achieved) if you want to use the pool. At weekends you will be extremely unlikely to get a poolside table, much to the detriment of your swimming experience, although there does seem to be a system for reservations. Alternatively, visit during the week (and even ring first to see if they have any fish ...).More

This a floating restaurant with a nice boat ride out to it. It has a beautiful pool attached as well. Options to sit under the thatched roof on either floor and view the rivers that become the Amazon or to sit on the deck at...water level. The atmosphere and vibe is unduplicated! The food is authentic regional, presented beautifully, and absolutely tremendous! Really cool to be there at sunset and sip a pisco sour.More

This restaurant floats in the middle of the river with great views. The access is by boat from it's own location in Iquitos. We went late in the afternoon and had a great meal of local fish steamed in some large leaves with great spices...and heart of palm salad. Given its great location and good food it is moderately priced.More

Just go there! It’s the best place. Remember to book a table by the pool before your visit - otherwise you might not be able to swim in the pool.

The place aspires to be top notch kind of venue, as both the design and prices indicate. Service was excellent, however the most important bit - food - simply average and well overpriced. I don’t mind paying a lot for a good meal, unfortunately none...of the dishes that arrived passed the test. That’s a great pity.More

This was really a fun experience from the moment you wait for the boat to take you to the restaurant. To the pool in the middle of this floating restuarant. The food is great, prices are reasonable and its a good vibe for friends and...family.More

Probably the best setting in Iquitos. Food was also amazing. Definitely worth the boat ride which is included in the price of your meal. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for!!
