185 Malecon Maldonado, Iquitos, Peru

Serves meat, vegan options available. Extensive and varied menu with large vegetarian range, some of which are vegan, but vegan dishes are not marked; staff is accommodating with identifying ingredients and making changes to dishes if requested. Located by the water. Lots of outdoor seating. Excellent English spoken. Wi-fi for a small price. Open Mon-Sat 7:30am-10:00pm.

First Review by Dave_Thespooncarver

Good vegan options! - Edit

Was nice to go somewhere with quite a few vegan options (and lots of veggie ones!). I had the fajita without sour cream. They didn’t have avocados when I went so couldn’t have guacamole but the fajita was good! My papaya juice wasn’t that tasty. They have soya milk too for coffee!

Pros: Clearly labelled vegan options, Speak very good english, Soya milk

Cons: Only sorbet for vegan dessert

Nice food but expensive by local prices - Edit

They have a wide range of foods and food that is vegan is marked so with vegan options also often available. The food is really nice - the breakfasts and smoothies at least from what I tried and ingredients are fresh. But it is quite expensive by local prices. Nevertheless it seems like quite a go to place for tourists and with the provision of the Aya diet quite a safe place to go. Didn't find it very friendly i.e. not easy to find yourself chatting to folk. Unfortunately it is not veg*n and I'd rather support other places that are.

Pros: Tasty fresh food

Cons: Not veg*n, Expensive by Peruvian standards, Not as friendly as it perhaps could be

Really expensive sandwich with salad - Edit

Ordered a sandwich with hummus and it tasted od but was too small for the price, my boyfriend ordered a sandwich which ended up being just a small flat bread with salad, it was quite dry and tasteless. Coffee was also expensive and not really good. Atmosphere is not nice, people are at the door trying to sell you things all the time and inside the tables were really close together. It also didn't feel very clean. .

Cons: Expensive, Small portions that do not match up the price, Bad atmosphere

Clear vegan options but nothing special - Edit

Visited in June 2016.

Although the menu has vegan (or veganizable) dishes clearly marked; I found the dishes to be quite simple. The taste was good; but definitely not a highlight of my trip.
There is a good selection of drinks and juices, though.

The staff was very polite and attentive; and the service was rather quick.
If sitting on the terrace, you get a nice view of the river (but also people may come try sell you stuff, or, people may smoke next to you).

To be honest, the only reason I went is because it was the only place in Iquitos I found that has clearly labeled vegan food; so I was happy to eat a vegan meal without worries. However, it wouldn't hurt if they could improve their vegan selection a bit.

Pros: vegan options clearly marked, good service

Cons: food lacks creativity
