We enjoyed a good variety of fresh vegetables with pork and chicken delights. A very nice and artsy restaurant right at the train terminal. Food was outstanding.

Had lunch here in the outside terrace, which faces a small garden. Much more pleasant than the dark interior I think, but the weather was also nice out. Wait staff spoke excellent English and were very polite. Menus were also in English. The food was decent. Simple but not amazing. We had trout (fresh although the skin was a bit... More

Amazing food. Best food in town. Must visit. We didn't find a meal we didn't love. Staff is great, they speak good English, and they take visa.

The greens here are produced behind the hotel in their own farm. Then the greens are washed with distilled water. They make their own pasta and everything is from scratch. Muy delicioso!

The restaurant definitely lived up to its reputation. The food was incredibly fresh, healthy and tasty. They make their own chicha morada (traditional purple corn drink) and were able to bring me one without any added sugar. We paid less here than we paid for many other meals and were completely "wowed." We ate dinner and breakfast as we were... More

Great food and service. Some useful information. - The restaurant is inside the train station; - There is an outside area on the opposite side of the station. Ask for a table there. Really nice. I ordered: - Orange and Papaya juice - very good but no ice. - Veggie lasagna - not what i had in mind but it... More

Great local food in a nice ambience. Many (all?) of the vegetables are grown in the neighbouring organic farm. this restaurant deserves its high ranking in Ollantaytambo, even though it is located at the Railway Station, rather than near the village centre - it's just a 2 Sol ride in a mototaxi away. Great breakfast, as well as dinner.

My Swiss chard quiche and green salad was fantastic and only 11 soles! So affordable and delicious. My husband had the chorizo sandwich which he really enjoyed. We tried the local drink Chicha Morada, a purple corn juice, but it way to sweet for us. Suggest if you have a sweet tooth to give this drink a try. Overall a... More

We love this restaurant! The food was delicious and fresh. Most of the vegetables came straight from their own farm which is only two minutes away from the restaurant. After eating the delicious food ( especially the best carrot soup in the world!) we took a private tour of the farm. The farm gave us glimpse of all the fresh... More

We dinned here since we also were staying 2 nights at the El Albergue hotel. We managed to snag the last table for 2 and never regretted it. The alpaca burger and skewers were amazing and prices were reasonable considering the great quality and excellent presentation of the food.
