A real shame this place has gone so far downhill. Wonderful decor, nice ambiance, food is now terrible though. This used to be THE place for good, clean aya food. Now it's the same menu but food thrown together without any love. Sorry to see what has happened to this place.

I popped in for lunch after a day out and about in Iquitos. Had the lomos saltado on recommendation of the waiter. It was ok. Nothing outstanding but fine. Good service though. Friendly staff. Worth popping in ...if a little pricey for what it was.

Black cod to die for. Never felt rushed. Ambience and water light show spectacular. Excellent value.

Ok so almost everyone comes here prior to some kind of ayahuasca retreat. So you get to meet all kinds of open minded people and chat about your experiences. The cafe itself is clean and has some amazing ayahuasca artwork on the walls. The food is great, they cater for pretty much everyone as well as the ayahuasca diet. The... More

I have eaten here quite a few times. The prices are high and the food is consistently tasty. The staff are friendly and speak English well. The service is somewhat slow. As of December of 2016, a page of the menu is dedicated to the ayahuasca diet. Comparing this menu to that of the Dawn on the Amazon (the other... More

The open doors and eclectic mix of art and furniture appeared quite inviting so stopped here for a quick lunch. The staff were polite but when my colleague went to take a photo of one of the pieces of art they became quite aggressive and rude. Service was good and the food was ok.

This cafe has a nice, varied menu of food and drinks, and nice art on the walls. The seats have lots of pillows for relaxing on, and bean bags on the floor invite even more relaxation.

Great cafe, good food & amazing artwork. So easy to find yourself spending the better part of a day hanging out here with the other wanderers that trickle in.
