This is the best vegan restaurant in Iquitos. Walter (owner, chef, and waiter) cooks a delicious 3-course-menu (salat, soup, main) for 15 soles mostly from fresh local ingredients. The place is not fancy and pretty small, but the quality and taste of the food and the lovelyness of Walter (who speaks very good English by the way) makes it definetly the best place in town for vegans!

This cafe is run run single-handedly by Walter - he has a great imagination for 'Veganising' traditional Peruvian food. He will stop and chat (English and Spanish) with his customers. The three-course lunches of the day were fantastic. On one of our days in Iquitos we went on a full day trip and we weren't able to get to 'Bananas' before closing time. Not a problem - he told us to knock on the door whatever time we returned. This we did and he prepared us another great 3 course lunch. The place is nothing fancy but you're not there for plush decorations, you're there for amazing vegan food

Friendly and personable owner who speaks perfect English.

The dishes served were delicious and original.

My set menu included a starter salad with Yuka cheese, a peanut soup which was delicious and a main course of a bean burger topped with guac.

Whether vegan or not, it's worth having a trip down this mystical pathway to experience the treasures at the end...
