“Good buffet and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Very good family restaurant and conveniently located right across from the bus station. Varied buffet and recommendable although the barbecue is ok. Everything else is great. The service is very good. The hostess Carla was very welcoming. I’ve been in retail for many years and customer service is a must. Where other host/hostess promoting the restaurant just tell you to look at the menu, here they are very attentive, welcoming and explain everything in detail.

“Nice Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is a reasonably priced buffet with a lot of choices. We ate there on a Sunday night.

The meat was good but nothing like some of the other parilla restaurants. You will get a large range of options and the bread was great. The dessert that comes with the buffet is great.

I do not think I would recommend this over some of the other restaurants on the street but if you are here for a longer stay the buffet is a nice way to try a variety of Argentine dishes.

“Delicious Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Prior to catching the night bus from Iguazu, we stopped at this restaurant. The service was prompt and the server generously brought us extra bread (which was fresh and yummy). The main courses were generous, the tenderloin with peppercorn sauce was a particular favourite, although I would recommend trying Surubi, the local fish.The passion fruit mousse was a real hit with my son, being up there on his list of memorable desserts.It was right across from the bus depot, so very conveniently located.

“Inedible buffet”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

As part of the buffet deal 120 pesos per person, the grill steak and fish was indelible/disgusting, the salad bar was average looked much better than it tasted, though the desert was nice. The service was excellent and the ambience good, but rarely is a meal depressing but this was.
