“Treasure In The Jungle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Located right inside the national park for the falls, this buffet restaurant has everything you could ever want for lunch. The food and service are excellent and the prices are very reasonable. They have a/c in the hot jungle which comes as a relief after walking around in the heat and humidity.

“Extremely Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

We read that we should pack a lunch but didn't heed the warnings. Everything in the park is extremely overpriced and La Selva is no exception. It is "tenedor libre" (all you can eat) but still not worth the price for the average quality. Save your money and appetite for Pescaderia Barbarita in town where you can get some great local river fish for half the price!

“Great Variety! Great Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

We loved the self service restaurant with such a range of food - we especially liked the BBQ meat and the wonderful sauces! Not too packed and very good service - we enjoyed our cheeky waiter!

“A good buffet and Parrilla (BBQ)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

On our first day we ate here, it is a good place for buffet food, but the restaurant located at the second tier of the park is better in my opinion, close to the look out tower
