Amazing Food, Great Service

I ate at El Albergue Restaurant after a long day of hiking Machu Picchu. We ordered a pasta dish, a salad, and a burger all to share. The food was absolutely amazing and the staff was so friendly. The pasta with mushrooms is definitely a dish I would recommend to all. This place is a must try... read more

Ate here twice and the food was good, fresh, not weird and nicely presented. Very atmospheric and great service. I especially liked the fresh salads with leaves from their own gardens. We have been quite horrified at most of the food we've had in Peru so we were overjoyed to find this place.

This is hands down the best place in Ollantaytambo! We loved Peruvian food! El Albergue did not disappoint. It was superb! A couple of quick tips....Make a reservation. Also make a little effort to dress nicer. We were backpacking and stuck out a bit. The location was tricky in the dark...We walked toward the train station but stopped at the... More

We so enjoyed our dinner here the night we arrived in Ollantaytambo that we went back the next night and even had coffee here while waiting for the train to Machu Picchu. The food was unexpectedly sophisticated for such a tiny town and the waitstaff was both professional and warm. I would call the food Organic Peruvian as much comes... More

this is is... this is the only restaurant NOT to miss out when you're staying in OllantayTambo. I've tried the local restaurant, but... this is by far the best. great atmosphere, great service. reasonable price, Organic all the way... Peruvian. They have their own garden. Manual, our waiter (who I believe is no longer there) is one of the locals... More

Breakfast was either a la cart or you had the option of ordering from the menu. The Peruvian meals we ordered were very good and reasonably priced.

I highly recommend the alpaca steak and maracuya (passion fruit) sour specifically. El Albergue was one of the best restaurants I visited in my trip to Peru. The ambience is great, food is incredible and the staff is very friendly.

Went there once during our stay in Ollantaytambo based on the reviews from trip advisor but we had a very average meal. The food was a bit tasteless and service was really slow.However the ambience is very nice,such a shame about the food.

This restaurant fills up fast, it’s best to have the reservation. It opens for dinner at 6 pm. We arrived just before 6 to secure the table without a reservation. My husband loved his alpaca steak; my trout was good, but not great. The portions are on the smaller side. The service was slow. One of the waiters was browsing... More

Olly being a small town, this is probably one of the nicest restaurant in town (in terms of ambiance). We had lunch there twice. The wild mushroom fettuccine was made with fresh fettuccine, lots of organic vegetable which was delicious. I ordered this twice because the flavor was excellent, and nothing else on the menu appealed to me. Just wish... More
