We kind of gave this one a try as "okay, we'll give one more place that purports to offer good regional cooking a go", and were completely surprised. Excellent service, beautiful space, excellent food - easily the best we ate while in Iquitos. Portions are huge, no, enormous. We were full after finishing our appetizers and barely managed to dent our excellent main courses. Given that, while initially the place seems expensive, I'd honestly recommend splitting one appetizer and one main course per two people, and only order more if you're still hungry - making it a great value.

I've eaten at La Gran Maloca a couple times and must say it is an unusual restaurant with delicious food. The building is from the rubber-boom era, but the decor is unusual mix posters of American bands/movie stars and local art of native people. The menu is extensive and the portions large. I enjoyed my chicken dish as did my fiancee enjoyed his patarashca fish dish. He said it was the best one he had while in Iquitos. The restaurant wasn't terribly busy, but we were the only foreigners in the place. It is 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas, and directly in front of the BBVA Continental bank on Sargento Lores. Frankly the few times we walked passed it, I thought it was closed, but it is open for lunch and dinner. Food was delicious and the meals were approximately 30-40 soles a plate.
