Delicious and enjoyable

The restaurant definitely lived up to its reputation. The food was incredibly fresh, healthy and tasty. They make their own chicha morada (traditional purple corn drink) and were able to bring me one without any added sugar. We paid less here than we paid for many other meals and were completely... read more

I ordered: - Orange and Papaya juice - very good but no ice. - Veggie lasagna - not what i had in mind but it... More

Great local food in a nice ambience. Many (all?) of the vegetables are grown in the neighbouring organic farm. this restaurant deserves its high ranking in Ollantaytambo, even though it is located at the Railway Station, rather than near the village centre - it's just a 2 Sol ride in a mototaxi away. Great breakfast, as well as dinner.

My Swiss chard quiche and green salad was fantastic and only 11 soles! So affordable and delicious. My husband had the chorizo sandwich which he really enjoyed. We tried the local drink Chicha Morada, a purple corn juice, but it way to sweet for us. Suggest if you have a sweet tooth to give this drink a try. Overall a... More

We love this restaurant! The food was delicious and fresh. Most of the vegetables came straight from their own farm which is only two minutes away from the restaurant. After eating the delicious food ( especially the best carrot soup in the world!) we took a private tour of the farm. The farm gave us glimpse of all the fresh... More

We dinned here since we also were staying 2 nights at the El Albergue hotel. We managed to snag the last table for 2 and never regretted it. The alpaca burger and skewers were amazing and prices were reasonable considering the great quality and excellent presentation of the food.

I only regret not having stayed in El Albergue on my way back from Machu Picchu to Cusco when wrecked after the Inca trail. It would haven been a matter of jumping out of the train and walk a few meters to reach the bar. Instead, we had to spend 2 more hours in the train till we finally arrived... More

The waitress was extremely rude to us. When we entered the restaurant it was completely empty but were barred from sitting down at certain tables because they had been designated reserved, even though there was no place card saying so. After we were allowed a table in the corner, at the behest of the waitress who wanted us to sit... More
