Picasso, Dalí… Eating at Boutique Hotel de la Fonte

Matteo Lagostena is an international chef who has devoted his life to discovering aromas and getting to know flavors. He has become a scholar of local products in Misiones and he uses them to elaborate each dish at his own restaurant.

Immersed in a tropical environment, 400 meters away from the triple border milestone and downtown Puerto Iguazú, this impeccable restaurant makes customers wish they would never have to leave. Its architectural and landscape beauty contribute to this, not to mention the dishes and creations of the author who has passionately confessed more than once that when it comes to cooking, he gets his inspiration from nothing less than Picasso, Dalí and Pollock.

Inside the Iguazú Jungle Lodge venue, Romántica is a true paradise to have dinner at Puerto Iguazú.

Besides boasting candlelit tables, customers may enjoy the moonlight and the stars resting on an endless pool. The cuisine deserves a whole paragraph.

Desserts are incredible and assistance is surprisingly good. First-comers will certainly want to eat here again.

María Preta, A Place with Roots

There is no doubt that the courtesy, the joy and the personality of the owner have impregnated this relatively new site in town. It opened up in July, 2009 and, as a result of good will, creativity and innovation, it has already become a classic among the neighbors. María Preta has been named after a tree. When the Portuguese colonized Brazil, they gave this name to a typical plant that covers the entire rainforest area and blossoms from September to November.

Here, dishes are based on local fish, such as the pacú, the surubí and the dorado, combined with excellent sauces made with roquefort, mustard and wine. Meat and pasta are other great options customers may choose. Of course grilled meat is a must. But the main protagonist at María Preta is the yacaré, which offers one of the most delicious and particular meats in the word. It has an exceptional flavor. It is served in many ways, but two recipes get all the credit: yacaré with green onion cream and fried mandioca sticks, or yacaré a la María Preta with chipá Guazú accompanied by Paraguayan soup. Both of them are really exquisite.
The venue closes when the last customer leaves. There is always room for one more customer, even after midnight. The music, the live shows and the constant joy turn this site into a classic where visitors can spend memorable moments at Puerto Iguazú.
