After the long walk through the Brazilian side of the Iguazu Falls, which is an amazing experience. We hit Porto Canoas where we found a rich buffet with several types of dishes to provide for all tastes ranging from Italian and other international dishes as well as the famous Brazilian feijoada. Everything was perfect and there even was a band... More

This place is really amazing for lunch. The menu is completed. You can eat everything and the price is right about all the things you can eat it. By the way, the most amazing thing is place: very close to the river and it's possible to see the Argentinean side of the waterfalls.

Located at the head of the Falls on the Brazilian side, this restaurant is really the only restaurant at the falls- apart from a hotel one. We purchased lunch as part of a selection of tours and options through our hotel. Large and varied buffet of fresh foods including desserts. Service for drinks was prompt despite them being very busy... More

Massive, ... but it is the only spot unless you want to lunch at nearby Hotel Das Cataratas - which is worth doing.
