Enjoyed eating here and during my time in Iquitos went there a few times. The breakfast omelet was great, dinner selection plentiful, close to the hotel, I definitely recommend it. The owner, a Texan living in Iquitos most of the year will come to your table and see how you're doing. The best place I ate at while there.

3 stars only because it is a tad expensive for what you get, in that area of town. The food was really nice, service was good and quick, staff were friendly, really good but expensive we thought.

We ate at this restaurant several different times during our trip to Iquitos with the kids. The food was always top quality. They have such a wide variety that there is surely something that everyone will enjoy. The owner Gerald and his wife Pamela were very nice and accommodating. They put their customers first.

Nothing special but they have a large menu (inc. English) and the combo meals are well priced. For example, this morning i had an omelet, coffee, toast, and fresh orange juice for s/ 15. Yesterday i had the stir fried spaghetti with vegetables and chicken for s/ 24 which is not particularly inexpensive for Peru but it was yummy and... More

Right away you will be greeted by a staff that makes you feel like you are part of the family - and then during the course of your meal - you will realize that everyone there is genuinely happy and friendly. At The Yellow Rose of Texas you have your choice of an indoor or outdoor dining area. There is... More

Not sure the outside signage of the best restaurant in Iquitos was achieved with the food and atmosphere. If you like American rock and roll, lots of American pictures and other things that remind you of Texas, this is the place. Service was average for our large group and the food was very typical 'bar' food. Nothing wrong with the... More

This is the first place I ate at after I arrived in Iquitos. The atmosphere is great, the service is efficient and all the staff are friendly. I highly recommend The Yellow rose, and I'll definitely be coming here again when I return to Iquitos.

Here, there were claims of being the best rated restaurant in Iquitos on the signage outside. Not sure what that means for other restaurants but this one was distinctly average - a 3.5*. But, it is well placed next to the Plaza de Armas, close to the waterfront and very visible with its bright awning and signage. Inside it is... More

I rated this restaurant as very good because it has good food, great location, efficient staff, and a fun atmosphere. Be aware there are items on the menu that you should not have, example Alligator, and the English numbers and Spanish numbers do not line up, which means you might end up with the wrong dish if you can't speak...
