This eatery is cheap and popular but the food is no better than average and the staff rush you in and out to make space for those waiting. It's not a relaxing place. An entree and a main served at the same time means one or other is cold by the time you get to it.

I love Peru's lunch specials all around the country and El Huasai is a great place for it. For 15 soles you get a full course lunch and it is very delicious and when you arrive you will notice that the place is very popular. Try the cebada drink!

The restaurant is recommended by tourists and locals alike, and that was why we went. They have a special menu that is very inexpensive but it is all in Spanish. However, the waitress was really nice to explain to us what it consist of. The portions were huge and we couldn't finish eating it. Location wise, it is very close... More

No wifi makes you look around and feel the real act between people, mostly locals and some tourist The serving girls there are very very gentle and careful. I visit the place many times during my 2 weeks. In food way you get what you pay for. Good homemade food with no gringo feeling like in other places. Thank You//... More

This place is popular with locals for their breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and the price is right! Sandwiches are simple but good, and they have a nice lunch fixed-price

Went to Huasai with a big group, and was amazed at the ability of the staff and kitchen who handled it extremely well. The ceviche (only 15 Soles!) was full of fresh fish, strong and spicy (how I like it,) and came with yucca and potato. All things considered, it was one of the best ceviches I've had anywhere in...

This restaurant is set about half a block away from the Plaza des Armas. It is mid-sized and air conditioned. At 12:30, the restaurant was sparsely attended. For 14 soles, you are given an entree, main, and drink. There are three entrees and a handful of mains, mostly pork, chicken, or fish dishes, with one vegetarian option. I ordered a... More

Nice place to have lunches in Iquitos. Just pay 13 soles for an appetizer, entree, and juice. Was a nice way to try some local food in Iquitos.

This is one of my favorite places to have lunch in Iquitos. The food is excellent and priced well. Fast friendly service and is Peruvian owned. I am fairly regular eating there. Highly recommended!!!
