I lived in Foz de Iguazú a few years and with certainty the Confitera Jauense makes the best chicken leg with cheese from the three borders (Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina) tried by the majority of people visiting the city. This confectionery makes the best pies, crackers, and snacks in town. It has it's own parking, and a tea salon with 70 seats. Friends usually meet here to enjoy the delights, and chat in the evening.
This is a restaurant, in function room style, which is super close to the Iguazu Falls. At night they have big shows where tourists can enjoy numerous performances of all types of Latin dances. The show is very colorful. The food is buffet, but it is all rich. They make incredible mojitos.
The Buffalo Branco is a known grillhouse in Foz, where you can enjoy local specialties like steak or grilled meat. The restaurant is usually filled with foreigners, which is normal. It works this way: there is a (65 reais on top of which they gave me a discount) fixed price that includes many types of vegetables, salads, hot dishes, but mostly includes meat, which is unlimited. While vegetables are at the buffet, the waiters constantly pass with the most diverse meat specialties served on a sword. I counted at least 10, including roast chicken and grilled heart. All very good! Drinks are separate. Another table has desserts and fruit. You will notice a very different level of service and quality from most of the other places, so the price is more than justified.
The vast majority of tourists visiting Foz do Iguaçu have no idea that here is where the largest islamic community in Brazil resides. It's nice that the tradition of the Arab culture is present in a hotel in the city that receives an many international events. As I am a native of Foz, I already knew the hotel restaurant Foz do Iguaçu and its good reputation, but it was also in the famous and traditional Quinta. It was Arabic when I went there. Located in the city center, it is open to the public, not only for hotel guests. The restaurant is an optimal option for lovers of authentic Arabic cuisine, and for a reasonable price.
The Puerto Kattamaram is part of The route with panoramic view of the Hidroelectric Power Plant in Itaipu. With a spring cover, and a wide view of the dam that forms the beautiful Lake Itaipu, the restaurant is an option for both visitors to the plant, as well as those who want something different and more sophisticated in Foz do Iguaçu. With heating, it's very nice and has excellent service. The buffet, available only on weekends, has a good quality / price ratio at R $ 45 per person. The house also offers various dishes a la carte.
You know those places where you can feel the affection in every detail? This is one of them. In a touristic city like Foz, the importance of an environment that unites culture and leisure is almost essential, but I didn't know I'd find it here. The Emporio com Arte café emerged out of an innovative proposal to encourage local and national Brazilian artists to work on the details from beautiful tableware, to rustic furniture that decorate the place - everything seems to have been handpicked. Several artists are invited to exhibit their work and best of all, all the work exhibited is for sale. The menu is varied slightly, but guarantees exotic and different combinations, taking quality to a select audience in a city that lacks this kind of place.
