We went here based on a local friend's recommendation and although sceptical about its location on the train station platform we were not disappointed and actually very pleasantly surprised! The restaurant is cosy and very atmospheric - you fight through an often busy platform to get into the restaurant but the blissful smells, service and ambiance is worth it! The... More

The food here was simply amazing. The dinner menu was impressive and much of the fresh produce is grown in the gardens behind the restaurant and hotel. Well presented, delicious and of a standard that outshines the rest.

After reading reviews on this site we decided to make a reservation at this location the night before our Machu Picchu trek. If not staying at the hotel note you do have to enter through the train station which can be a bit hectic if there is a train boarding. We found the restaurant to be quaint and cozy with... More

Our guide recommended the El Albergue because we were not impressed with our hotel’s restaurant. To get to this restaurant one has to enter Ollantaytambo station as the restaurant is situated adjacent to the platform from where you can watch the trains traveling between Cuzco and Aguas Calientes whilst you eat. This is a pleasant and interesting setting serving good... More

Probably the best restaurant in the area. A bit pricey, but very good, although not the best Pisco's I had in Peru. Alpaca with berry sauce was amazing!

My wife and I visited El Arbegue on the last day of our one week stay in Peru. We had vegetarian dishes- the stuffed green pepper, a Peruvian stew and stir fry vegetables. All the dishes were excellent made with fresh vegetables from their very own organic garden. The location is great as it is right on the train station.... More

After returning from Machu Picchu on the train, we ate at this fabulous restaurant. It was recommended on Tripadvisor and well worth it. My husband loved his 4 cheese pasta dish so much he asked to see the chef and shake his hand. Restaurant is right at train station so very convenient.

We had a late lunch after checking in and a few breakfasts there. The lunch was ok and breakfasts so-so. The food is good quality and the menu while short, is more interesting that what you find at most places in town. Not cheap for sure.

if you're looking for a place to eat in Ollantaytambo, look no further! Amazing dishes can be had at this adorable little restaurant right at the train station. We enjoyed quinoa salad, zucchini soup (from their garden) and alpaca burgers- yum! The portions are very large compared to what we're used to in New York so I couldn't finish it,... More

An extraordinary meal of fresh, organic ingredients that were prepared by a top-flight chef. One of the best bistro experiences of all of my travels abroad.
