Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best part on this side has to be the pleasant stroll along the elevated boardwalk that spans the river. Spend a lot of time admiring the view from the platform above the Falls.

The girl from Ipanema is now 71 years old but the song and the restaurant are a part of history. 2 blocks from the beach is this iconic restaurant with pictures in the wall showing the girl the song was written about when she was...27. The food was great, service excellent and pizza a great competitor of what we can find in the states.More

I did not expect much, but the food was very good and the service, particularly from Nicolas, was highly attentive...top, top shelf. Both breakfast and dinner were enjoyable, and the wine menu was pretty good! It's lucky that the restaurant is at this level, because...there is nowhere else to go that is anywhere close to the Melia hotel (formerly the Sheraton).More

The Garganta Del Diablo is the restaurant in the Sheraton Internacional Iguazu (see separate review) at the Iguazu Falls National Park (Argentina side). The restaurant is named after one of the signature views of the Falls, the Devil’s Throat (see separate Iguazu Falls review). While...the views are great and the convenience to the park is terrific (and the air-conditioning most appreciated), the food is pretty lackluster. We were on a pre-paid package from Buenos Aires through Silversea Cruises, as an add-on excursion to our Antarctica cruise. As a result, our meals at the Garganta were already paid for and so we really do not have an idea how expensive the restaurant was. However, we were aware that the hotel was much more basic than the price we paid, so it makes sense the same would hold true for the restaurant. You are paying for the views and the convenience. We ate all three meals at the restaurant. At lunch, we could order off the menu and all of us had the club sandwich or the Caesar salad with chicken. With our package, we also got a glass of wine and water with our meal. With our tour package, we got the buffet dinner and a glass of wine/water. It was a pretty extensive buffet, and one of us did okay with it. One of us was quite sick with a respiratory flu and didn’t feel like eating anything and nothing looks appetizing to the sick. The one not-sick got plenty of cheese and fish (smoked salmon and sea bass), and nice rare steak. The sick one picked at some cheese, carrots, potato salad, and some ridiculously salty ham/chicken alfredo spaghetti. There was a dessert buffet as well, and we tried the flan, cheesecake, and German chocolate cake, all passable. We did order a bottle of wine from room service and it was about $30 (too high for its quality at the going Argentinean rates). We thought the breakfast was the best offering of the bunch, again with a buffet. We got eggs, bacon, fried potatoes, juice, and some excellent fruit (pineapple, papaya). They also gave us a box lunch for our trip to the airport as part of our package. It was a very bleak ham/cheese sandwich, an apple, some cake, and a bottle of water. If we had known how much the meals were, we would probably have been shocked and offended. As it was, ignorance was best, even if not bliss. The restaurant was convenient, air-conditioned, had a great view, and was close to our room. It was just right for us under the circumstances.More

Because it's in the National Park, staying at the Iguazu Sheraton means that you're pretty much a captive audience of their restaurant Garganta del Diablo. The good news is that it's a very good one. The breakfast buffet was excellent, their dinner dishes were very...good or excellent, the only slight let down was their dinner buffet: excellent variety, but not all great. Their desert table was excellent. No hesitation in recommending it as part of the hotel stay.More

If you are in the Sheraton hotel in Iguatzù probably money is not your problem. The restaurant of the hotel is just the same. Good service with a lot of waiters attending to your needs. The food is quite good, portions are generous. At lunch...the view on the Garganta is something special; at night instead there's a musician playing the harp that gives a relaxing atmosphere. The prices are very high even compared with the hotel, much more compared with what you are eating. Taking a taxi to Puerto Iguazù will cost you anyway in money and time (about 700 pesos and 1 hour to go and way back).More

The staff are so nice that I'll give this an average rating rather than poor, and really: there are not a lot of options around here. But the food is old-fashioned and average. I had a risotto special with some fried fish which was OK....The sauteed vegetables were hilariously old-fashioned, julienned and cooked in butter. My better half had a risotto that was very, very salty and I think had more mozarella than parmesan which made for messy eating. I kind of liked my starter, with eggs and a sort of cooked beef tartare, but the lemon tart for dessert was all kinds of wrong: too sweet, too many combinations of something or other. Breakfast buffet selection, however, was excellent and should offer you anything you desire. Also: the harp player was giving a fine performance.More

Excellent food quality and service to be expected from a Sheraton. We stayed at the Sheraton and had a light evening meal one night and lunch after walking the falls. Both were outstanding meals perhaps a little expensive, but found that the prices in town...(for dinner) were the same but in town quality was no match. If I were to do it again, I would stay put at the Sheraton and soak in the service. At the bar, Langostrenos Crocantes--Fried Shrimp tempuras about 12-16 little sticks: awesome with the sauce and your favorite beverage. The Empanadas de Carne (spicy beef empanadas) were very good as well (for the second beverage). For lunch, Crema de Palmito--cream of palm soup: a little misleading as this is not cream as in milk in the west, but rather the cream of the palm tree/stalk itself. Absolutely outstanding--A dash of tabasco for those wanting a spice kick (like I do). A must try is the "surubi" : salmon and shrimp with saffron over rice--Brilliant. BTW, the servings are quite large. We requested for the soup and the salmon to be split by two and the staff helped us with extra plates/bowls. Perfect!!! And you get to do this with the views (partial) of the falls.More

We didn't stay at the Sheraton during our visit to the falls. We had lunch at the Sheraton restaurant. It was a fantastic midday break as we ate without getting harassed by coatis and as far as I'm aware, it's the only air conditioned restaurant...in the park - a bonus when you want to cool and dry off after walking in 34 degrees heat. They had a varied menu, food was great, decent portions, reasonably priced considering we were at a 5* establishment and the staff were all friendly. For roughly A$500, we had deep fried prawns with sweet soy dip as a starter to share, mains were: wild mushroom risotto and a penne bolognese, a couple of drinks in between. The restaurant was not so busy at the time (13:00), we were able to get a table with a view of the falls.More
