The location was a challenge to get to, but once there was very nice -- floating in the middle of the river. The food was good; but not really that much better than we had elsewhere in Iquitos. It's quite expensive compared to other restaurants.

The waiter we had insisted and basically chased us to get their tip in cash. It almost ruined the whole experience!

The restaurant location and view is awesome, day and night.
The food was good but I was a little disappointed that we asked for a amazonian fruit juice that was in the menu and they told us they ran out of all juices but one. We are talking about amazonian fruits and we were in the amazon river, how come they ran out of most of them?
At the end of the meal we asked for an espresso, and we specifically asked for an espresso machine (sometimes people think espresso is just strong coffee) they said they have it but what they brought was american coffee in an espresso cup.
I would have give them an average review but the decoration and the views were son nice I think it is not fair.

What a place this floating restaurant is a unique spot, but the food was average, i have been there a few years ago and it was better. Also very expensive, during the day you can enjoy the pool a romantic spot at night for couples.

No question it's creative cooking, and certainly the setting and the presentation is a step up from anywhere else we ate in Iquitos, but, much of it is superficial. We didn't think anything was particularly exciting in terms of flavor, certainly not equal to the way the dishes looked - things lacked seasoning, and three out of four dishes arrived missing one or more components that were promised on the menu. While service was friendly and swift, the response to that was simply to shrug, and only once offer to go get the missing ingredient, a sort of useless approach to offering food that's supposed to be something different. The setting is beautiful, and it's worth it in the afternoon if you want to take advantage of the floating pool attached to the restaurant - bring bathing suit and towel. We were surprised that the restaurant allowed people to simply come and use the pool in exchange for ordering a bottle or two of water or soda, without dining there - it may be good public relations with locals who can't afford to actually eat there, but isn't with the diners paying the freight.
