Al Frío y al Fuego Review

Step through the unassuming doorway on Avenida La Marina, descend the long stairway to the dock, and a boat will ferry you to this floating restaurant. At first glance, the thatched structure on a balsa-log raft belies the fine service and excellent Peruvian fusion cuisine that await you. The menu offers innovations on traditional dishes using local ingredients, from tiradito (marinated fish strips) in a cocona (jungle fruit) sauce to pescado a la Loretana, a tender filet of doncella (a river fish) in a sweet chili cream sauce served with chonta (shredded palm heart) and tacacho (fried plantain-and-pork dumplings). If fish isn't your thing, try the steak with cassava gnocchi and onion marmalade. The restaurant's floating swimming pool is a great place to spend an afternoon (bring a bathing suit and towel), whereas the view of the city lights makes it equally appealing at night.
