Description: La Rueda fue inaugurada en 1975 y su nombre proviene de una rueda de carro que fue regalada por un granjero local a los duenos, la familia Bauza, cuando llegaron a la tierra de las Cataratas. Nuestra carta contiene una amplia seleccion de platos personalizados que combinan exoticos productos de la region con base en la cocina internacional. Las especialidades de la casa son los pescados de rio, como el surubi, dorado y pacu, tambien nuestras carnes Premium asadas a fuego vivo p parrilla (tipica coccion Argentina) y las mejores pastas con ancestrales recetas italianas amasadas diariamente . Para maridar nuestros deliciosos platos, podemos sugerir dentro de nuestra cava, una excelente botella de vino de etiquetas nacionales de diferentes regiones del pais. La Rueda, icono gastronomico de la region por cuatro decadas, es un vivo testimonio de los tipicos sabores argentinos, manteniendo la esencia y calidez de la tradicion familiar desde 1975.-

I visited Rueda 1975 having read good reviews both here and in Lonely Planet, and was not disappointed. The restaurant has a sophisticated ambience, the staff are friendly and the food was beautifully presented and delicious. I can also highly recommend the house Malbec which is sold by the (very large) glass - delicious.

I had the langoustines with surabi followed by the fillet steak with Malbec sauce. Both delicious and huge portions. The steak was admittedly less tender than I’ve had elsewhere but it was well cooked and tasty. The dessert menu also looked very good but I couldn’t manage to eat any more! The bill for 2 courses plus wine and water (and complementary bread basket) came to 800 pesos - around £30. Well worth it for quality of food, service and atmosphere.

As it was just before Easter, we ordered a bottle of the blended red "Judas" as a joke but turned out to be super if a bt expensive. The bife chorizo was well-cooked but not very tasty. The berenjenas was decent, nothing special. I thought it was expensive for what you got.

We stayed in Puerto Iguazu for several days and what a shame we only discovered La Rueda on our last evening! The staff was fantastic and the service was very high quality. We had ribeye steak and ravioli and both were wonderful. Even the dessert was really special - flambe of pineapple, chocolate and ice cream. Highly recommend!

Our Argentinian friends had brought mutual friends to this restaurant a few years ago and recommending it highly.
We had flown into Iguazu late that afternoon and had had no time to make a booking so we went early in Argentinean time at 8: 15 pm. We were told that we would have to wait 40 minutes or more for a table for four. Seeing that we were about to leave for somewhere else we were offered two tables for two alongside each other but were told in no uncertain terms that we could not move the tables 2ft closer together and that we would have to be billed separately. Laughing at the absurbity we took them. When the waiter appeared about ten minutes later our friends explained what we had been told, he also laughed out loud and much to the chagrin of the girl who had given us these orders he moved the tables together.

We ordered appetizers and main course expecting the appetizers to be delivered in about 15 minutes . They took over an hour to appear. Meanwhile the waiter brought us two lots of breads which we fell on because we were so hungry.

The appetizers were good. Our mains less so. My wife's chicken rolls under the Thai listing meant to be a speciality was inedible: the chicken was tough and the sauce over reduced. Two of us had the grilled fish with vegetables that was very good.

Wine was in the main expensive.

Could do a lot better.
