We stopped in at this restaurant as part of a bird-watching tour. Our guide arranged for us to sample several methods of preparing the fish. All were excellent. The restaurant was open air and served cerveza.

This is a really hip and wonderfully decorated restaurant that serves cayman or largatos (animals in the crocodile family). They have local beer (nothing artisanal), lots of seating, live music on occasion and great artwork on the walls. I really recommend eating a cayman dish!

This restaurant is beautifully furnished with furniture made of raw wood. Gives a very local look fitting for a place in the Amazon. You can get alligator meat and of course lots of good local food which is mainly beef and fish.

Delicious, special dishes, like crocodile in copuazu sauce. Very simple settings, but good food, for very decent prices.

Thank Johan B
