Porto Canoas has a great location absolutely adjacent to the Brasil side of the falls, and it also offers a plentiful buffet with huge variety. The emphasis though is on something for everyone (and plenty of it), not on quality food. Many dishes were quite bland, and most of the hot offerings were only just warm despite being in bain marie's. We initially tried eating outside on the inviting deck overlooking the river/falls, but were challenged by the wasps attracted by the food. Inside was better and the live music provided by a solo male singer was very good. Drink prices were very reasonable for a touristy location, but the range fairly limited. We assumed paying by credit card would be acceptable, but our credit card was declined despite it being perfectly good everywhere else in over a month in Sth America. In all fairness the staff were very good and eventually resolved the problem, although by then we had reached the car park in search of a back up credit card. So, while we might query their technology, there is no doubt that you will find a huge quantity (perhaps not quality) of food to suit at Porto Canoas in a very spectacular location indeed.

We visited this restaurant during our visit to the area, it was recommended by a family member, and we weren’t disappointed. The service and food were first class, also there was a lady singing traditional songs accompanied by a very good guitarist. The position of this restaurant provides stunning views of the area. So good food and wine, good service, good entertainment, and great scenery. What more could one possibly want? Not cheap but worth every penny, recommended.

You are at the top of the amazing Iguassu falls. A lovely buffet for lunch with lots of the local favourite dishes.

If you arrive around 1 pm this place will be packed but if you arrive around 3 pm It will be less busy and you will enjoy it better. It's a buffet and you will for sure find something you like. I loved their fish!

The view is really nice so I recommend to try a table outside.

After seeing the marvelous Iguaçu falls in the Brazilian side, in the end of the trail there is this restaurant, with good food and a scenic landscape: the falls, the river. You can chose to be inside the restaurant, or outside, seeing the river. The food is good, served in the system all you can eat with a fixed price which does not include beverages nor dessert. There are many options: beef, fish, chicken, the traditional rice and beans, salads.
