It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in Ollantaytambo and we took a stroll down to the railroad station that we would be travelling from in the upcoming days. We stopped in to the El Albergue interested in a dessert and cool beverage. We were greeted...More

Fresh and flavourful Peruvian cuisine. Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Was never bored with the breakfast choices. Lots of healthy food combinations for meat or non meat eaters.

Lasagna was fresh but veggies were undercooked and it was not baked. We had lunch here also, alpaca burger and tenderloin sandwich were...More

As per title - this spot serves up the ‘best’ food, but is therefore more expensive than the smaller and more basic places in the town. Had a delicious quinoa salad for lunch, and a super filling aji gallina for dinner. Coffee is very good....More

We had dinner at this nice restaurant. The food was great, with lots of veggie/vegan options. Also the background music from a local Inca was very charming (and not at all disturbing). The staff was very friendly. Getting there at the same time as an...More
