We were a little cold but did not care we wanted a table in this very cool patio. Some of the drinks are served in a whole coconut or pineapple... our caipirinhas traditional... More

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.

The restaurant offers a buffet service with a vast variety of dishes. Drinks and desserts are expensive and not included. The view is spectacular and the place is very clean and quiet. A few staff members can speak English.

Enjoyed our lunch while watching the beauty of the falls. Staff is friendly. Don't forget to look at the other side of the falls from here... coz you can see the Argentinian boarder with their flag from here.

Their buffet is definitely a deal. Numerous options and pretty economic. Food has a decent quality @ the flat price of $12-15/person. Alcohol and beverages aren't included in the flat price. My friends and I arrived here around 3 pm, super hungry after a long day at the falls. Food was tasty, the black beans soup was my favorite. You... More
