I was surprised when found this place. Very classy, with a beautiful sunset river view, mahogany and marble everywhere; and great international food!! The menu comes in a tablet!!! I tried the Carbonara meat...it was really good, and before I ordered an amazing Salmon and Quinoa salad; food was so good as the Belgium beer I ordered (not cheap at all).

Came here for a meal and had the Kobe burger. Was very good (a bit buttery) and the chips it came with were nice - the only issue for one of us was that the burger were quite rare (which I liked but my mate didn´t). We were given olives and bread while we waited and there was good service and it was quite quick. Nice night

My wife and I visited the Amazon Bistro the week before last. It had a great ambiance and a nice vibe but we did not have a positive experience with the food or service. We waited a long time for service and when I got my sandwich it did not smell good. A person seated at the bar came over apparently the owner or perhaps the manager and he offered great customer service in offering something else. He also said he was having a bad night due to a cook and a server not showing up.

So...take my review with a grain of salt but for us, for the one night we visited, it was not at all good except the owner or manager offered good customer service.

Croque-Monsieur to best French standards. Drinks? Caipirinha to best Brazilian standards, Service? To best Peruvian standards of courtesy and amiability, As an extra, a Belgian Bande Dessinée to read (in Anglo, approx = comics), called Spirou. Nice décor inside, space outside to be with friends and relax in the evening. But definitely more burgers than local dishes.

This well-appointed cafe situated on the waterfront may not feature local or traditional Peruvian dishes but has a lot of character and a relaxing dining area. It's the closest one can get to a Parisian cafe in Iquitos and indeed French radio is played there most mornings to accompany the home made croissants. The menu has a lot of new dishes mostly inspired to French, British or American cuisine. Free wifi. It would be excellent if they offered some local dishes too.
