This is any thing but gourmet. It's a cafeteria with some hit and miss choices. Being at Michu Picchu, it fills a need and from that stand point it's fine.

Expensive, but very convenient and relaxing after hiking the ruins. Full buffet with dozens of choices and carving stations. Lots of desserts too! We were rejuvenated and went back into the ruins and walked the Incan trail up to the Sun Gate.

The lunch buffet at Sanctuary Lodge was excellent. If you consider that it is a tourist trap it would be easy to cut corners on quality and variety and how hard it is to truck everything uphill every day! The buffet was excellent. There was a huge salads bar area, a huge veggies and hot foods area, 2 carving stations,... More

If you enter after the crowds and tour groups have left (around 2pm) you'll feel like you're getting better value for your money (us$40). It's a buffet so when it's quieter you can take your time have a proper refreshing meal and a few soft drinks readying yourself for the quietest hours in the ruins and letting the bus queues...

After a morning hike we were starved and the buffet at Sanctuary Lodge was a perfect choice. Seafood, meat, soup, salad, fresh fruits and small desserts. Very satisfied and ready for the afternoon hike.

Didn't stay at the hotel, rather bought a package including lunch at the Belmond's buffet. Actually requested it from the travel agent and paid a supplement. Imagined serene surroundings, a well made cocktail perhaps, pleasing outlook over Machu Picchu. Oh my. What an extraordinary betrayal of a brand. Think prison mess with cheap pine furniture (really!), extra chaos and ever... More

At $40 per person, this buffet restaurant is okay for those who have just visited MP and am feeling hungry and wish not to spent 45 minutes going down to eat their meals at the town below at half or 1/3 the price . Truth be told, the food around MP area and the town below is just meant to... More

This was a good buffet and the service was great. We enjoyed a lunch as we arrived at the hotel Sanctuary Lodge, which hosts this restaurant. Only this restaurant and one other snack bar have anything to eat at Machu Picchu.

This buffet had a great variety of items to choose from. Everything I tried was very good. This is your chance to try something new. Very busy, but wait staff was quick to get what you needed or answer questions. Clean and items were replenished in a timely manner. A little expensive for a buffet.
