“Great food, terrible taxi ride back to hotel”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

After a long day at the falls, I was looking for a better restaurant than the one at my hotel, which was 20 minutes out of town. I found that better restaurant at Dona Maria. I ordered an orange juice (yummy!), grilled vegetables and an entree. All were very good. The grilled vegetables were more than one person could eat! While waiting for the entree and vegetables (which did take too long to come) I was given a complimentary empanada, which was delicious, and perhaps one of the best I'd had in my 2 weeks in Argentina. After my meal, I asked the man (I think his name was Christian?) who stood at the entrance to greet patrons (and encourage others to try the restaurant) to get a taxi for me. He told me he called a personal friend to take me back to my hotel. The taxi driver took me unnecessarily down back roads, away from the main road (scary as a single female traveler) and then attempted (unsuccessfully)to charge me nearly double the standard rate for the trip! Thanks Christian and your friend, the taxi driver, for a poor ending to an otherwise lovely evening and giving me the only negative experience in an otherwise fraud-free trip to Argentina!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

I absolutely recommend this restaurant! Amazing service, amazing food, good prices: we chose the buffet with salads, breads, cheeses, soups, etc, as well as home made pasta and all types of meats upon order, dessert included: 51 dollars for both my boyfriend and I. It was the best of 4 well-recommended restaurants we tried in Iguazu.
