We had been told that this restaurant was one of the best places to eat so my wife and I and another couple went there for lunch on May 30. The food was very good as also the Pisco Sours we had before the meal.

The farm-to-table feeling was refreshing when it seems like all of the eateries in Ollantaytambo are serving pizza, pasta and burritos (which I still don't understand). The food was good, not amazing but very good. The veggies were fresh and my quinoa was very good,...More

El Albergue gets great reviews, so probably what happened to me is totally rare. Even the best places can have a bad night, but of all the places we ate in Peru -- we travelled all over the country for a full month, eating just...More

How far is your restaurant from Parwa Guest House? Walkable? How many minutes? I don't drive and depends on public transport.

Response from Julia S | Property representative |
Parwa is located 1km from El Albergue, so about 15 minutes walking.
How do I get to your restaurant after I arrive @ Ollantaytambo train station from AC by train leaving AC @ 6.20 pm? The train arrives one hour later, I think. So I arrive about 7.20 pm. What time should I make the reservation for? After dinner can I walk back to my hotel or are there taxis available?
