We went to Aqva on the recommendation of our driver. He said that if we wanted to sample the local river fish, Aqva was our best option. The restaurant itself is relatively unprepossessing. The ambience is warm, but not flashy or pretentious. Lots of wood furnishings and warm colors; simple décor overall. We didn't have a reservation, but got there just enough ahead of the dinner rush to get a table with almost no wait. The food was great. We had two different types of local fish (Dorado and Pacu, as I recall) that were done in imaginative, but uncomplicated preparations that allowed the flavors to really shine. Salads and desserts were solid and the wine list was excellent. We had one of the Rose Malbecs here and fell in love with it. The service was good and unassuming. I had the impression that they really wanted the focus to be on the food. I saw that few people felt that Aqva was overpriced. Maybe. But you'll pay as much or more in Buenos Aires for meals that are this good. And you won't find many places in Puerto Iguazu that measure up. We didn't have better fish during our entire two weeks in country - and this was by far the best meal in Puerto Iguazu.
