“Discovering LATAM music, dances, and meat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a very touristy attraction, but I wouldn't call it a tourist trap. The show lasts about 2 hours, and spans through many of the typical dances of South America. The meat was delicious, and if you've never been, it's certainly entertaining. They also have a non-meal option, if you wanted to see just the show and not eat there as of 10:30PM

“Excellent Show!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

A show that covers entertainment from all the latino american parts of the world. Show is in portugese. You have a buffett dinner but you are seated where they put you so you may not have a good view. We were very far back but I stood at a good place and managed to get loads of photos. Food is included in the price but you have to pay for your drinks and when they give you your bill at the end, check it only has the drinks you've drank as they offer free cocktails but add it onto your bill regardless of whether you drink it but if you query it they take it off your bill.. ;-)

“Perhaps worth it for the experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This is a churrascaria buffet dinner with a live variety show. They don't bring the meats around on skewers, instead you just go up to the buffet stations and get your meats there. The food variety in the buffet was rather overwhelming. Most of the traditional brazilian dishes were interesting, but their rendition of other international staples like pastas and potato salads were a bit off target or at least overcooked. you sit family style in these rows of tables along with all the other diners and when it's a packed house it can be quite a zoo. Waiters are clearly stressed and busy (they dropped off beer bottles for us without opening it and it took another ten minutes to flag down someone to open it for us). The show was a collection of their renditions of other countries' singing and dancing performances - sort of a like an international tribute. The dancers were okay, not great, and some dancers clearly better than others. Not surprisingly their best performance was when they did traditional Brazilian performances, like their Capoeira. All put together it was a fun night out and interesting to experience. The pricetag though was pretty steep. It was US $75 per person not including drinks, but given where you are located, there does not appear to be a lot of other options for "a night out" in Foz do Iguazu!

“DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

These people are crooks! The food is MEDIOCRE to POOR, all the meat is overcooked, all the Italian food is dry, and you share the buffet with 300-500 people jam packed into a room.

Important tip - If you do go, Be careful the waiter will bring you more drinks and open them up for you. THEN, the will pass out read champagne drinks and the announcer will tell everybody to take them and drink together once the mood is cheerful. YOU will find all these drinks on your bill, if you don't drink it don't pay!

This place is very deceitful and one of the biggest tourist traps you will find.

The show is ok, kind of awkward, slightly boring, with some hints of goodness. But to pay 180 R$ for 2 people, you can have quality food and a feast for kings, don't waste it here.
