As I was visiting from Argentina I couldn't bring a picnic lunch to the park due to customs regulations (no meat, fruit etc) so I decided to have lunch at the buffet which was right next to the river. It is winter and not peak season but the park was busy and there was a constant number of people eating,... More

This restaurant is called- Restaurante Porto Canoas. Yes, it is located within the park, at the last stop. Brazilians love buffets! This was no exception. We were able to sit outside and view the Argentina side of the falls while enjoying lunch! It was a nice buffet and the waiters were prompt. I think, the price was about R$50 per... More

We stopped here for lunch, caught the elevator after final view of the falls. Best buffet lunch with a great variety of food that is constantly kept warm. Good price for all you can eat (just under 50 reals). Dessert is not included in the price but absolutely worth having.

We stopped here after walking the long path down to the falls. We decided to catch the elevator back up to the restaurant. The buffet was very good. A nice variety and constantly refilled. Get a table so you can sit and watch the falls if you can, but either way you will enjoy and delicious and filling lunch. The... More

Inside the Cataratas Park, it was a really pleasure moment with an incredible view during my lunch time. The weather was warm and the view sounds more than perfect due to the blue sky. You need to include this place in your trip, at least once. Don't forget to take as pictures as you can. Enjoy it!

Try to stay at the balcony. The view is fantastic. The rest of the review has to take into account the following considerations: it is the only restaurant in a sensational and highly touristic place; it is self-service buffet food. That said, food is quite good, with a nice sample of Brazilian food and good international food as well, the... More

Only open during the day when the park is open. Huge buffet overlooking the Falls, great choice, great value and super cooking. Well worth a stop for a late lunch and then have a snack for dinner. Far better food than at Hotel Das Cataractas nearby.

The food selections were fantastic. Don't expect typical American food, this is South America, so expect food preparations to be such. So many interesting choices.

You know, a buffet dish is seldom very good. Those (both hot and cold) in Porto Canoas are just good but the variety is worth mentioning. It is not expensive either, if you take into account that you are facing Iguaçu Falls (about US$ 22 per person). It may get crowded (and in such a case you may have to... More
