All my friends that went to Iquitos recommended me to check out Karma cafe. It has amazing meals, and vibe. What is personaly best for me is that it has amazing night scene with live music almost every night and day with many different musicians. Check it out, you will not regret it

Soup to die for! The food here is hearty and not overly expensive. We liked it so much we ate here twice - for lunch and dinner on the same day!

Though they don't have a good area for outdoor seating we came here anyway. I was glad we did! It feels very cozy inside with couches, etc. The guacamole with warm chips was so good we had two orders! The also have great smoothie and nice cold pilsners. I wish we could have gone back as the menu looked great!

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.

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
