We were a group of 16 people and we had great food. Very simple place, no music, but steaks and parilla were very good. If for you food is more important than ambient, this is the place for you

HORRIBLE restaurant. If you don’t want to spoil your whole trip, DON’T go there! The waiters are extremely rude and even aggressive sometimes and the restrooms were the dirtiest I’ve ever seen!

There are many places to eat in Puerto Iguazu which are aimed at tourists. El Patio (on Av Victoria Aguirre, not to be confused to with a fancier French Restaurant of the same name which is attached to a hotel) tries to draw in tourists, but is still frequented by locals, and is not as fancy as the more tourist-aimed...
