“Cheap + Great variety + Fresh Food = WIN!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I can go on and on about how much I enjoy eating at this restaurant!

Their skewers are great (even all veggie ones too) but the secret is their lemon meringue pie. No, it's not as good as a fine bakery in the States or Europe but for the middle of the Peruvian Amazon - not too shabby!

Just wish they could do something about the constant roar of traffic outside. But such is Iquitos and you take the great with the bad.

“Cheap, funky and great food”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

El Sitio is small, funky, a little noisy but the empanadas are just great and all the food there shows it was prepared with skill and care. It's inexpensive, staff are always smiling and the service is spot on. Definitely worth a visit.

“The best kabobs and good empanadas - cheap!!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

This is a simple place but its much cleaner than many other places in the city. The staff is friendly and wow are the kabobs good! Huge variety of kabobs cooked to order. Get an empanadas and a Spanish pie to go with your steak kabob- one of my favorite places in Iquitos .

“You will like the brochettes!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Something different in Iquitos, with the chef cooking on a barbecue outside the "brochettes" you will choose. Served with a fresh salad, really really nice place!
