The best meal inside the park, a value of only R$: 79.00 you have released a buffet with international food, varied where you find everything you want, you have access to an incredible amount of international wines. Loved the food. Loved the restaurant. I loved the service.

Open buffet with good food. The pear in passionfruit sauce was really something. But the dessert table is waaay below standard: better have a little more of the excellent lamb and skip the cheap-tasting desserts.

We visited the park on a Friday and Tamboril was the only open restaurant. As soon as we got there The hostess offered us a table and used the word "refined" several times to describe the restaurant and its food. Quite the contrary it is not refined at all. It is just a normal restaurant where customers are valued proportionally... More

Excellent food in beautiful setting. Healthy fare, cooked with pride and attention to detail using local ingredients. For both vegetarians and non-vegetarians, one always finds something delicious. Open for lunch only, buffet style. Excellent choice of local beers. Friendly service. English not spoken fluently. My favorite table is outside, next to the gardens.
