Great food with delicious accommodation for Aya dieters, vegan, etc. And beyond the wonderful menu, you'll feel wonderfully at-home among fellow travelers Skyping home on the free WiFi and sharing tips and tales. Super-nice folks: Staff and customers alike. Gorgeous view. Reasonable prices.

We enjoyed eating here several times during three days in Iquitos. Service lovely, food and drink generous, tasty and reasonable. View over the river and people watching stellar. Don't miss.

The food and service is excellent. We enjoyed it so much that we ended up eating here a half-dozen times. The location is great, right on the malecon, with a bit of a breeze off the river. Outdoor seating is great for people watching and...More

Due to being an the Ayahuasca diet, this was a Godsend. I could order something from their special menu and know it was compatible. It wasn't the best food but the diet is very bland so they do their best. I gave four stars because...More

Dawn on the Amazon Cafe easily accommodated all the dietary quirks of our group: vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian, and omnivore.
