We went to eat at Sanctuary Lodge after our morning guided tour. The buffet served up a wide range of cold cuts and hot entrees. On that day we had salmon, roast beef and seafood for the hot meals. The cold platters had cheese, fruit and a variety of roasted vegetables and salads. The breads were fresh and offered whole... More

After hiking to the top of huaynu picchu and back down, my husband and I were famished. The little sandwich things they were selling outside the ruins were not gonna cut it. We debated on doing the buffet as we aren't much for buffets and $40 a person was steep but honestly we were starving and wanted to stuff our... More

When you are touring Machu Picchu, there is only one place to eat - - the buffet at Sanctuary Lodge. Considering the remoteness of the location, we were pleasantly surprised at the selection and quality of the food. This was included as part of our tour package, so I don't know about the prices. You had a large selection of... More

After a long and wonderful day of touring Machu Pichu, the restaurant in the Sanctuary Lodge is a welcome respite. The food is very good, the service is great, the chairs are comfortable and the bar tender knows what he is doing. What more could you ask for. We loved it and will come back the next time we're in... More

Good food selections at the entrance of Machu Picchu. Service is fine. It's always crowded at lunch time. It's perfect for those who need a good lunch at Machu Picchu because there is no food available once you are inside Machu Picchu.

It's an expensive place with poor options of food; really is a waste of time to eat there (we did it only because our agency had already booked it). There are better options of food with more decent prices in 'Aguas Calientes', all you have to do is take the bus down the hill. A shame to say the least.

This was a bad experience from start to finish... They herd travel groups in one small group at a time as people leave, it is noisy and overcrowded and the kind of food that has lots of stuff but nothing tastes very good. It was a part of our small group tour package, or I would have declined. To top... More

We were hungry and we thought the food was good. I have no idea how much the meal cost since it was included in the tour package. Maybe if I knew the cost my opinion would be different as it was standard cafeteria style fare, nothing fancy. But there was lots of variety and the wait staff was very attentive.

The food is local in flavor, yet up to date. Wait staff are outstanding and attentive to any request. Ask for Juan.
