We went there for dinner. The show is very nice, specially if you are not Brazilian or south american. You have the chance to know about typical dances. The buffet is too diverse. You can get from BBQ to Japanese sushi and Peruvian ceviche. Give it a try.

We went for the Iguassu by Night Program which took us to one of the most typical places of the city - the Rafian Show. We enjoyed buffet dinner - traditional “gaucho” barbecue - coupled with a show that covered three cultures and identities of the countries of the area. Brazil with the Gauchos folk, Argentina with Tango, and Paraguay... More

After the buffet (it was okay but with plenty of choices) the folklore show began. It was very colorful and fast paced as they showcased several traditional styles of music and costumes. Pan flutes to Mexican to Carnivale was performed. We loved it all!

It was a large with great air conditioning that we felt comfortable. Staff were hospitable. It was neat and clean, specially dishes and bathroom. They served varied food in a self service fashion that nearly everyone could find the preferred meal for sure.

Had lunch here with my tour group. We didn't have the chance to watch the cultural show since it is only shown during dinnertime . They offer a nice buffet selection ,with extensive choices for the pasta dishes, cold food items, desserts etc. Of course the highlight are the barbecue meat items done gaucho style. I liked the food that... More

One of my best experience. All you can eat with a reasonable price although you need to pay for drink separately. There is a big table for cold cold food and another for desert and a big BBQ with what ever you want. Also you may enjoy the show with all type latin America's dance. Totally recommended:).

This is not a restaurant I would have chosen as I do tend to avoid buffets as I've had bad experiences with food poisoning and terrible dishes in the past, however our tour group came here and I'm glad we did. There was a large variety of meats, pasta, salad and traditional Brazilian dishes as well as desserts. The place... More

Varied menu. This restaurant does not open only on Sunday night and in some special holidays. It has one of the best buffets in Foz do Iguaçu. At night, there are dinner shows with folkloric music and dance. There is barbecue, salads, typical food, pastas, eastern food and dessert included. I highly recommend for anyone who loves good food.

The dinner is a buffet style, the food is plenty but that night the quality was average, and I speculated that it was because Brazil lost 7 to 1 to Germany in the World Cup soccer. The show has a variety of cultural performance, ending in the traditional Brazil dance, but i would not say it is a "must" to... More
