this place is in the middle of the town slightly away from the visitors area. The staff don't speak English but we did OK. We ordered a 600 gram steak which we shared between two two people and it was done the way we wanted...More

I should have gone with gut instinct and left immediately. This place is really grubby. The food was average at best and the service was poor. This was the worst place we have been to in Argentina, having now travelled for two weeks.

I had one meal here, dinner, on my last night. Being a vegetarian is not always easy in meat rich countries so I appreciated the good lasagna. Service was great and was able to have a single glass of wine.

We stayed in Iguazu for 5 days and visited this restaurant 3 times. All the restaurants serve pretty much the same thing and we are not steak connoisseurs so decided on this slightly cheaper option that does a range of meat and pasta. We did...More

We actually wound up eating here twice because fish was available and fresh, and prices were cheap. I mean, we're talking cocktails that cost not much more than water. So all in all, it wasn't so bad. But not everything is good, and it's all...More
