Really lovely restaurant with delicious food. selection of fresh pastas, great salads, and tasty meats. I would highly recommend coming to this restaurant for a tasty and relaxing meal. We ordered the puttanesca pasta and lamb with chimichurri. Both were absolutely delicious. Well prepared, and well seasoned. It is located within the train station so you pass by the initial...

We stayed at El Albergue hotel and had a fantastic dinner on a site. Great cousine. Excellent food presentation and creativity. Music by old Indian guy was awesome. Outstanding eco friendly quality of the meals. They used some of the products from their own farm and gardens. Beautiful décor. Outstanding service. We enjoyed every minute we spent in this restaurant.

We really enjoyed dinner here: the train station decor and excellent food and wine made for a memorable evening. After a long day at Machu Picchu, this sated our appetite. The salad and vegetables were very fresh, and are grown on site. In fact one can visit the agricultural area, and see coffee roasting and and emerging distillery. Good wines... More

This gem is truly the best we've found in Ollamtaytambo. A nice, classic dignified space serving up their take on local dishes as well as the local spin on standard fare. The food is locally sourced, with much coming from their own organic farm. The presentation was top notch, ad the food was delicious. Service was attentive but not intrusive.... More

The quality of the food and service were excellent. We got the lamb chops and the pepper steak along with drinks and strudel with ice cream for dessert. The food was excellent and the bill was about half of what one might pay in the US.

We had made and confirmed a dinner reservation weeks in advance. When we arrived they had no table for us, they were expecting a large party. After I pointed out the reservation again they managed to find a table. Just as we started to eat, a tour group came in and took over every table surrounding us. Bumping our chairs... More

We were staying in the hotel and tossed up whether to eat their as well but so glad we did. Great and diverse menu with something for everyone. We have 4 fussy teenagers and they were happy while those who wanted to branch out had excellent meals. The alpaca skewers were so delicious and the spaghetti puttanesca excellent. The local...

Very tasteful place, with a nice menu and good service. We enjoyed our dinner and the quick walk to our hotel. This is the nicest place to eat in Ollantaytambo. Walking through the tourist-trap train scrum is a little annoying, but that's business in Peru.
