This was the best price we could find for a 'pick me up' Espresso @ S. 4 each. Quite a lively bar and I'm sure popular with the younger crowd. For us the coffee was mediocre, but served it's need.

To start with there were dead flies on the windows. Then some stray cats were hanging out on the empty tables. The service was soooooo slow. Not including our party of 6 there were only 4 other people. How long does it take to make a pizza?? The oven is burning all day. It took forever even to get the... More

We landed in Ollantaytambo in the afternoon and were immediately drawn to the stunning views of the archeological sites built against the mountains and couldn't wait to get there. Unfortunately, we hadn't eaten yet and neither of us wanted to climb the site on an empty stomach and so we stopped by for a quick sandwich and a drink. The... More

Our waiter took the time to explain all the dishes and ingredients to us. The food presentation and delicious flavor made us come back the next day.

Stumbled in here after a grueling hike to the top of the ruins and were desperate for a drink. Killer Pisco sours in a fun, relaxing environment. Remember Pisco sours take something like 10-15 minutes to make, so order a beer while you wait! The tequemos (tacquitos) with guacamole are out of this world!!! Went back for dinner which was...

We tried Tawachaki a couple times because we really liked the relaxing feel of the courtyard, but our impressions never got any better. It says it is a pizzeria, but both nights we went, they were out of pizza. We did try the empanadas and tacos, but the food was disappointing; I'm quite sure empanadas are supposed to have more...

Plenty of space, seats inside or in the garden, excellent food, a good place for lunch or evening meal. Reasonable prices.
