One of the Better Restos Visited in Ollanta

I came here to eat twice, once with a friend and once with a group of 6, including a local. The food was pretty good, prices on the more reasonable side, and the service on the slow side. Slow service seems to be the pattern in Peru, based on my experience, and we were in no rush, so I didn't... read more

Lucky for us our hostel was right next door. We got guacamole and the usual Lomo Saltado. Great food, and ambiance as well as service.

Puka Rumi was highly rated on trip adviser, so I went to check it out. Honestly, this place seems like a more expensive local restaurant. They do a good job gearing the food towards gringo tourists, with wood-fired pizza, pasta, and “burritos.” But honestly, the place was quite expensive, and pretty underwhelming. The pasta was described as “freshly made,” but... More

We were recommended Uchucuta at the hostel, but it was full so ended up here. Intersting mix of peruvian, pizzas and mexican food. The aji de gallina was very good they were a bit slower when it got crowded but were up to it anyway.

After arriving late to ollanyantambo, we decided to head out for a quick pizza. We order one type of pizza and were brought another with no explanation. It wasn't that great. Then they didn't bring the rest of the order. Which was neither here nor there since the pizza we were eating wasn't that good and we felt it was... More

It was not very busy when we arrived but a table of 8 was just ordering and this set the kitchen way back. Two other tables entered after we did and the waitress took their orders first - I think she was just overwhelmed. This service issue is echoed in other reviews. Anyway, the food we had was good.

This restaurant is run by the same family as the hostel below, Los Andenes. The food is really good, try the different soups or the burrito (really big), everything is good. The staff is applied, portions were quite big. The price is correct (for a touristic restaurant). If you dine here, do not forget a little coat, as it tends... More

This was very close to our hostel (Ollantaytampu Hostel) and was recommended to us so why not? We tried the alpaca steak which was a little overdone but I suppose that's how it's supposed to be prepared. The sauce that came with the mashed yuca/potatoes was quite good. The margherita pizza had the right amount of fragrant basil but lacked... More

As another review mentioned, there was only one woman working as hostess, waitress, and chef. (Super impressive) This wasn't a problem for us, because we were the only people in the restaurant. we went during the off season, so we assume that there is more staff when the restaurant is busier. the food was amazing, we recommend the burrito and...

I couldn't give this place more than three stars due to the incredibly slow service on the night we visited. There was only one woman working, both cooking and serving - later on someone else joined her and things sped up a bit. Anyway, I would give the burrito five stars! ABsolutely elicious, and so much fun to assemble your... More
