We started late and did the sun-gate walk, by the time we got down it was around midday and my 10 year old daughter was burnt out. We had pre-booked the buffet with peru rail, walked right in, not busy. Food was just what you needed, plenty of it and good selection, local band played and we sat in the... More

Good buffet, nice atmosphere. A perfect end to a long day after touring the ruins. You do build up an appetite after lots of walking and climbing.

The location at the entrance is probably the most luring quality - you can easily rest and regain your composure after walking through Machu Picchu or hiking up/down Huayna Picchu, or any of the trails before jumping on the bus back down to Aguas Calientes. What can you say about a buffet? Light sampling of some Peruvian style cuisine. Disappointed... More

I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant. In the pictures it shows that it has these wonderful views overlooking Machu Picchu, well that is not the case. It is located at the entrance of Machu Picchu, but it does not have the views it shows on the web. The food was nothing special. There were a few things in the... More

We decided to include lunch when purchasing our train tickets and are glad we did. After a half day of hiking Machupicchu and Huaynapicchu we were ready for some nourishment and this buffet lunch did not disappoint. The buffet had a wide variety of main, side dishes, salads and desserts. Everything I tasted was very good and what a treat... More

We came to the restaurant as it was booked by our tour. I am not usually fond of buffet dining and this was no exception. There was a long lineup to get into the restaurant, all the while standing in the hot sun. Once we were inside it was packed and very difficult to find seating. Once we were able... More

We purchased a prepaid lunch as part of a special offer with the Vistadome tickets - the cost ended up being an additional US$37 / person. We had heard that food options were limited at Machu Picchu and decided to give it a go. While the food was nothing fancy we were quite enjoying it (amazing what a 3 hour... More

Well, that was booked for us by our travel agent and he had best intentions but if I 'd do it again I wouldn't go there. First of all it is very expensive - as everything at MP. Second - we had to wait till it was open at 11:30 AM and our tour was over by 9:30 Am (we... More

Buffet lunch here is actually very good. The beef stew was excellent. Sadly we arrived at 2.30 and the buffet ends at 3.00 and there weren't any vegetables left, but there was still plenty of salad, meats, desserts and grains. There was a huge queue at 12.30 when we walked by as there aren't any other food options nearby, so... More

They are still ripping you off for bottled water and canned soda. Yes, a $4 coke. When you seat yourself the waiter appears with a tray of beer and soft drinks. We expected to pay for beer but were told ahead of time that soft drinks were free. Some of our party ordered water, some a soda. We learned too... More
