We even went back the day after but then it was closed:/ then we went to La rudea 1975 wich was horrible in comparison. Antonio and... More

We went to eat at the vaca enamorada upon tripadvisor rating and we only can share the good feedbacks. The owner explained the food ich made it hard to decide. the shrimps were jucy, the meat was tender and the sauces delicious. the homemade cake at the end not too heavy.

I don't often review places, but this restaurant was fantastic. The owner personally introduces himself and tells you about the food and how his wife is the chef. They put love into their food and you can tell. Visit this restaurant...You won't be sorry. Thanks for a wonderful dinner.

We were looking for a restaurant where I can get a nice vegetarian meal, while my husband can try the famous argentinian steak. A difficult combination, but: La "vaca enamorada" met all our needs! There were some vegetarian propositions, the veggie food was tasty, and the steak was nice as well (according to my husband). As others wrote already, -... More

We had four nights in Iguazu and each evening went to a different, highly rated restaurant. Thankfully on night three we took the walk over to La Vaca Enamorada! Intimate, amazing personal service, excellent dishes and wine. So good, in fact, that we went back on night four wishing we had a few more nights to experience here. One great... More

The owner is fantastic but most importantly the food matches. In this remote part of Argentina come and be delighted by such a wonderful selection cooked to perfection. A great selection of tasty meals cooked for your delight. We'll be back.!

We ate with 6 persons in La Vaca Enamorada. I've travelled around the world and ate in a lot of nice restaurants, but nothing, nothing can beat this wonderful restaurant, the food is amazingly well balanced and the owner Alberto is the best host I've ever encountered. His passion for the food is amazing, his wifes cooking as well! We've... More

This place is incredible! The location makes it look like it's a hipp burger place somewhere, don't let that fool you! The owner is very sweet and will tell you which options on the menu are available tonight (only a few will be). After a starter I had the pork filet and can honestly say that I have not had... More

255/5000 Alberto is extremely friendly and explains his work with detail and pleasure. I really enjoyed the entrance of green grapes and especially the pork. The gnocchi also wonderful, with a tasty and fresh sauce. I wish success and long life to the Cow in Love

Lovely man but average food. There are better options. The pasta was delicious but the steak was tough. Meal was not memorable and service was slow.
