Flight from Lima to Iquitos was delayed so we arrived for lunch at 2 p.m. I had the wild pork with vegetables and rice. It was more than excellent. My wife had the gator/camen with tapioca root fried. Also excellent. No sauces available except hot green sauce and siriochi sauce.
For salads/Appitizer I had the baked river fish with palm, it was wonderful. Wife had a fish salad photos here
Then they brought out a fruit ice cream over a cut fruit. It was very good. It was orange colored like an avocado texture in bitesized chunks.

After looking and looking for a place to eat something exclusive from the area I decided to try "El Meson". Very close to "el malecon" and other important sites, they have very original dishes in their menu. I went for the "crocodrile" and I have to say that it tastes just like chicken. My lemonade was cold and delicious. I also had a "cusqueña" which in my opinion is the best peruvian beer you can have. They also have wifi available to their customers. I left very happy.

Great stop for lunch- there is a set menu at lunch time which offers salad or soup followed by a main with a small jug of juice with each for s/16 (around £3.50), which was nice, the service was good and food was lovely it's just on the riverfront. Just make sure to have sugar with the refresco because it's a bit bitter without and you can pay with visa.

Sat out on the walkway for lunch. Service was a little slow, but only one gal was working. Prices were reasonable and the food was good!
