If you have little time a buffet is always a good choice. This place had a decent enough buffet and lots of desserts. But the waiter was clumsy, pouring red wine over my friends white jacket. And then he said it was not his fault, although we all saw how it had happened. In the end the restaurant did pay... More

Too weary to explore, so we opted for the hotel restauant. Buffet looked better that it was. Steak from the parrilla was included. Not very tender or flavorful for Lomo. Good wine list at a reasonable price.

Very good family restaurant and conveniently located right across from the bus station. Varied buffet and recommendable although the barbecue is ok. Everything else is great. The service is very good. The hostess Carla was very welcoming. I’ve been in retail for many years and customer service is a must. Where other host/hostess promoting the restaurant just tell you to... More

This is a reasonably priced buffet with a lot of choices. We ate there on a Sunday night. The meat was good but nothing like some of the other parilla restaurants. You will get a large range of options and the bread was great. The dessert that comes with the buffet is great. I do not think I would recommend... More

Prior to catching the night bus from Iguazu, we stopped at this restaurant. The service was prompt and the server generously brought us extra bread (which was fresh and yummy). The main courses were generous, the tenderloin with peppercorn sauce was a particular favourite, although I would recommend trying Surubi, the local fish.The passion fruit mousse was a real hit...

We ate here December 22nd on our first night in Iguazu. The steak was unbelievably tough, though the grilled vegetables were fantastic.

As part of the buffet deal 120 pesos per person, the grill steak and fish was indelible/disgusting, the salad bar was average looked much better than it tasted, though the desert was nice. The service was excellent and the ambience good, but rarely is a meal depressing but this was.

Had dinner here our first night- two adults and two small kids-- and staff was extremely helpful and accomodating of the children especially.

Buffet included wide selection of fresh salads, meats.and cheeses. Grill was as good as anywhere in town. But the attraction of this place is that you can taste a little of everything without hesitation as its all inclusive but.for.your.drinks. Overall easy convenient well priced all you can eat buffet.
