    De La Fonte

    This exquisite hotel restaurant, domain of a maverick creative talent, is super-strong on presentation, whether homemade pasta or inventive creations with a touch of molecular gastronomy. The imagination on display presents local tropical flavors seamlessly intertwined with prime cuts of carefully sourced fish or meat. The homemade bread is a delight. The degustation menu (AR$1250) showcases great culinary ability: leave room for dessert.

    La Rueda

    A mainstay of upmarket eating in Puerto Iguazú, this culinary heavyweight still packs a punch. The salads are inventive and delicious, as are the imaginative river-fish (mostly pacú and surubí) creations. Meat with a variety of sauce options is reliably good; the homemade pasta is cheaper but doesn’t disappoint. Service is good but slow. The wine list has a high flagfall.

    La Dama Juana

    Offering a compact interior and pleasant balcony terrace, this is more informal than most of this strip and offers significant value. Service comes with a smile; abundant meat or fish plates with innovative sauces, and colorful salads, make for pleasant dining. While prices for mains are similar to elsewhere, it often has specials and the pastas dishes are well priced.

    Terra

    Chalked signatures of myriad satisfied customers mark the walls of this chilled bar-restaurant that specializes in wok dishes, with teriyaki salmon, pasta and salads as other options. Dishes are solid rather than spectacular and portions can be a little small, but it remains a good choice if you're looking for some variety. The streetside terrace fills fast.

    Feria

    A really nice place to eat or have a beer is this market in the north of town. It’s full of stalls selling Argentine wines, sausages, olives and cheese to visiting Brazilians, and several of them put out picadas, grilled meats, other simple regional dishes and cold beer. There's folk music some nights and a good evening atmosphere.

    Color

    This popular indoor-outdoor pizza 'n’ parrilla packs them into its tightly spaced tables, so don’t discuss state secrets. Prices are OK for this strip, and the meat comes out redolent of wood smoke; the wood-oven pizzas and empanadas are also very toothsome. You'll have to wait for a seat during high season, or reserve online.

    Aqva

    Solicitous service and plenty of flavor keep this split-level corner bungalow filled with the buzz of contented diners. The quality of the meat is excellent, and there's also an ample river fish selection, though the salmon is better. Starters offer plenty of variety, from lamb carpaccio to a tasty sampler plate of local specialties.

    Tatu Carreta

    Located in a big barn-like structure a block away from the main restaurant strip, this popular grill serves up big portions to a mostly Argentine crowd. The outside terrace seating fills up first and is a good place to down some beers and watch the grill masters at work. Make sure to order some of the house special potato skins.

    Bocamora

    A romantic location overlooking two rivers and three nations is reason enough to come to this place just down the hill from the Argentine border marker. It specializes in grilled meats and well-prepared plates of river fish; the food is competent, service is very hospitable and the view is just breathtaking.

    La Misionera

    A good budget option in the heart of town, this per-kilo buffet has a small but tasty selection of hot dishes alongside pastas, salads and great vegetable pies. Every time you visit the buffet take the plate to the counter to be weighed and it'll be added to your bill. Staff are very friendly.

    One of few decent cafes in Puerto Iguazú, this offers good fresh juices, good coffee, delicious sweet temptations, sandwiches, pizzas and tasty savory tarts. Beers, mojitos and caipirinhas are also available.

    La Mamma

    For a budget-friendly filling meal head to this informal little place for fresh homemade pastas, tortillas and pies. At first glance it doesn't look like a restaurant at all – most of their business is selling raw pasta – but tucked away in the kitchen there's a chef ready to knock out whatever combination you desire.

  • Restaurants in Parque Nacional Iguazú

    La Selva

    During your visit, this restaurant, close to the Parque Nacional Iguazú's main entrance, will get talked up so much you’ll fear the worst, but it’s actually OK, with a buffet of hot and cold dishes that includes parrillada. It’s pricey but information kiosks give out vouchers offering a substantial discount depending on how busy they are, so head there first.

    Fortín

    Well located near the Paseos Inferior and Superior falls walkways, this offers a mediocre and overpriced buffet spread with parrilla choices. A beer on the deck is a decent alternative.
