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 on the Itaya River. 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 includes traditional dishes such as patarashca (a fish filet topped with herbs and garlic and roasted in a bijao leaf), and inventive dishes like ravioles
loretanos, raviolis stuffed with cecina (smoked pork) topped with a tender filet of doncella (Amazon catfish) and a leek cream sauce. If fish isn't your thing, consider the steak with cassava gnocchi and onion marmalade. The restaurant has a small swimming pool and deck, making it a pleasant place to spend an afternoon (bring a bathing suit and towel), whereas the view of the city lights makes it equally appealing at night (bring insect repellent).
