The restaurant was recomended to us by our tour guide/driver and is apparently rated high by some of its clients. We went there for dinner recently as there are very few alternatives that are recomended and are not working in the rodizio style. The place is nice and clean and close to anything in the town center. We ordered steaks... More

I came here based on previous tripadvisor reviews and was truly disapointed. The restaurant has the atmosphere (and the food) of an industrial canteen in the sixties. I ordered the beef fillet and what came to the table had no resemblance to anything like fillet. On my remark the restaurant undertook a second attempt, albeit without much more success: What...

This is by far the best restaurant we visited during our stay in Foz do Iguacu. Excellent meet, good wine selection and good service. Definitely much better then any other highly ranked restaurant on tripadvisor in Foz do Iguacu

This is a somewhat advanced type of "pay by weight" (the food on your plate) restaurant which is typical for Brasil, but the price is disproportionally high compared to other similar. It would have been more proper for this otherwise quite sophisticated restaurant to charge a fixed amount for the buffet.

Very good, like a buffet where you can take any kind of food you like but pay by weight (price for kilos). You can find many salads, rice, beans, pasta, soups, steak, ribs, cheese, etc. Drinks are not included and pay them later.

I went as part of a group. The menu was fixed with a choice of entre. The food except for the main course was excellent. Well prepared and served. Unfortunately, the meat that was served was a large chunk of meat put on a plate. It had the texture and appearance that it it had been chemically tenderized. It also... More

Brazilian food from the marvelous steak to the "moquecas" from the north of the country. Good location and huge saloon with enough waiters to help you in your orders and needs. Located at the Triple Border (Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina) help you to have an international experience as well with people that use to frequent it.
