We found this restaurant in Iguazu which is not the most interesting of towns but thanks to the owner Alberto and the chef (his wife) we had a lovely evening and a nice meal

We came to the restaurant because of its high ratings on TripAdvisor. The owner is charming and very talkative, but he does not speak English. He explained the menu to us verbally, because they don't offer all of it every night. He was able to cook something off the menu for one of our group (vegetarian limitations). Food quality was...

I spent 6 months in Buenos Aires making small trips here and there, and La Vaca Enamorada is in my top 5 meals I had in the country. The service was impeccable, the owner is clearly very passionate about his food, and that shows in everything from how he explains the menu to the dishes he suggests for you.The pastas... More

We decided to try here after reading the reviews. It is a small restaurant of about ten tables, when we arrived there were three free tables. The man that people have described as Basil Faulty in previous reviews seated us and asked us to wait for ten minutes as he tended to other tables. Thirty minutes later we still hadn't... More

So I read about this restaurant on Trip and we stumbled across it trying to find somewhere else. It wasn't busy so we went in. Alberto sat us down - there were 3 or 4 other tables occupied. He was the only one serving. Alberto is the owner and front of house, his lady is the chef and there is... More

I am writing this after a lovely night at Alberto's restaurant. I was a little apprehensive when entering as the restaurant was quiet with only a couple of other tables occupied, but this feeling quickly dissipated after the first course arrived. We chose grapes with fondue - sounds a bit weird but if it is available, I highly recommend this.... More

This special restaurant is all about its owner, who is a sweet heart who spends time with each guest. He also shows the dishes to other tables before he serves them. Very cute. I don't think they have everything on the menu but he will tell you what they have. The food was good, we had steak and pasta, while... More

The host was unbelievably welcoming, gave us a short menu with some of the best food/sauces I've ever had the privilege of tasting. We ordered about 4/5 plates between 6 people with two bottles of wine and were STUFFED. Total for each person was about $16USD. Unreal price for the kind of food we got. Please please go if you...

We were warmly received by Alberto, the host and server. He sat down with us and explained the choices for dinner enthusiastically and in good 'portuñol'. We ordered without even looking at a menu, but he brought us one nonetheless. We were in the mood for a cold white wine and he recommended a tasty sauvignon blanc that was just... More
