There are few eating options in the park, but lunch here was thoroughly enjoyable. The restaurant (near the entrance/exit) was quiet when we visited out of season but provided a much needed resting place after a wonderful 5 hours viewing these fabulous waterfalls. We enjoyed the personal attention of waiter Jorge Ledesua who served us despite the buffet arrangement and... More

Dinner here was part of our full moon tour package. The varieties of meats/sausages was delicious. My husband likes to try new and different things and the chef tried to explain to him what it was in Spanish. He loved everything he tried. Excellent and attentive service. Everything was so good we decided to return a second night. Second night... More

Problem is there are no options. Hence we had to eat here. This park needs more restaurants. Urgent. Bhagwan.

During our one-day tour of the Iguazu Falls, our tour included an all you can eat buffet at La Selva, which is the big table service restaurant in the food area. There are several sandwich and self serve places there, but this may be the only place with waiters. Like all parilla grills, the whole place smells like grilled meat... More

All the dishes except the meats were tasty and there was a lot of variety. The meats were tough and lacked flavor. The restaurant provided a welcome chance to relax and cool off. Service was very good.

After a rather long morning of queuing for trains and hiking to the falls in the rain, we decided the best option to eat other than fast food was the buffet restaurant . It was such a relief to rest here. The staff were attentive. The variety of food was delicious and freshly made. The salad bar was delicious and... More

Good restaurant inside the park. A bit expensive, without views from the waterfalls. Remember to ask for a discount voucher in one of the information desks.

Once you're in the Iguazu National Park, there aren't too many food options, but La Selva is a decent one. They have a buffet style lunch with an included parilla (grilled meats that you can choose from). The food is good, but it's a lot of food. Don't go here unless you're really hungry because you're paying for a buffet... More
