This has quickly developed into Puerto Maldonado’s stand-out restaurant...
There has long been need of a restaurant like this in the town center: large, airy, courteous and serving up regional goodies with an emphasis on fish...
It may have no name, street number or phone number but this place is far from unknown by the locals, who flock here for great fish with rice and plátano . Food is prepared on a grill outside and tables fill up fast.
The Peruvian Amazon version of Chinese food is actually quite tasty. This place is the most locally popular joint to try it out. Closing time is officially 11pm, though the place often stays open much later.
For a sweet treat or the best ice cream in town, drop in to this French-owned patisserie with a pleasant courtyard at the rear. Sandwiches, cakes and drinks are dished up, and local objets d’art are on sale.
This is the place to feast on great freshwater ceviche (raw seafood marinated in lime juice), as the contingent of local dignitaries clearly think: there’s a nice decked seating area out back with river views.
It’s become a tad complacent, but this cafe is still decent enough to stand out against most: it serves varied breakfasts, tamales, great juices, snacks and Puerto Maldonado’s best coffee.
This popular but dimly lit hangout on the Plaza de Armas serves pasta and amply sized, wood-fired pizzas − the best in town.
This place is popular at lunch for its ceviche (seafood marinated in lime juice). Other local fish dishes are also offered.
