The inside of the restaurant is fun and full of energy. The restaurant owner is very welcoming and explains the menu to you. Wine selection is great and so is the food! They have wifi too which is a nice plus so you can share your eating adventures. Great place to check out after a day at the falls

the available plates are a very shortened version of the full menu. the food was mediocre and they charge "cubierto" or service charge on top of the published plate price.

The food was pretty dreadful although the owner enjoyed positioning it as a family restaurant with a carefully selected menu. Instead, all the the food was not properly cooked and lacked flavor. The wine was decent although they did not cook that.

This restaurant is excellent. The owner was extremely friendly, spoke english, and he explained the whole menu very well. On top of that we had a nice conversation about his history. Overall a great service. The food was fantastic, I almost forgot that I was in Argentina not in Italy. I also really recommend the vino tinto de la casa... More

The owner of this restaurant was just as delicious as the food. He loved that we were American's trying to speak Spanish and encouraged it. He made amazing suggestions on the menu to make sure we got the best possible experience. There was a difficult woman in the restaurant and he handled her very gracefully. Definitely Eat Here!!

There really isn't that much to say that hasn't already been said by other reviews. The food was excellent (be sure to have the garlic prawns) and the service was too.

Great reviews got us there the last night of our stay. The owner loves his work. The menu was extensive but most was not available and that was fine as our most restrictive eater was given what suited at almost half price. Every meal was very very well done. There was even the recognition that Argentinian portions are too large... More

This restaurant is small but cosy, the waiter and the chef are the owners of the place. It's a friendly and colorful environment. The menu changes everyday, having more or less 8 options per day. You can have the menu in Portuguese, Spanish and English, but waiter can only speak the first two languages. We ordered the shrimps and the... More

Such a great find in Iguaza. We had such an amazing meal. They only have a few options each night which means what you have is delicious. If available make sure you get the prawns and the melted cheese & grapes, all absolutely delicious. The man who owns it is so lovely and helps you through the menu. Couldn't recommend... More

We were greeted by the owner Alberto who made us feel right at home. He carefully reviewed all the offerings of the day and made helpful suggestions of plates that are big enough to share. The bife de chorizo is among the best we have ever had. The gnocchi were perfection -- so light and the sauce was just right.... More
