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.

We arrived a little early to this restaurant but the owner kindly opened the place up for us! The food was superb and the owner was able to recommend dishes to us. We ate gnocchi, pork and chocolate mousse for dessert. We would recommend all 3 for the quality and price. A great find in Iguazú!

We came back from our 10hs at the Cataratas Nacional Park starving and we found this wonderful place open at 19.15 (unlike many other restaurants), they served us a nice little entree while we were deciding what to order and then the food was great. Homemade and fresh. The pasta is made by the owner who lived in Italy for... More

This is a very cute family run restaurant just a hundred meters away from the main hub of restaurants. Prices are better and food is home made! I had Bife de chorizo, a popular argentinian steak and it was delicious! Juicy, a bit pinkish inside as I requested and with good portion of fatty edge (if you prefer it). My... More

La Vaca Enamorada is a very different sort of restaurant, but one that is well worth visiting! The host, Alberto, is incredibly passionate and enthusiastic about food and having guests at his place. Despite the pretty big language barrier, this passion shone through clearly, and made for a pretty amazing experience for our group. Unlike the rest of the restaurants... More

Wouldnt recommend this restaurant. Had to wait ages for menu and for dishes. Only three dishes available on a Wednesday night - pasta, fish or rump steak. We opted for 2 rump steaks which were ok but were overcharged 140ARS by host when bill came because they were big pieces he claimed. Also forgot to bring second glass of wine... More
