My girlfriend and I ate dinner here and were blown away. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was outstanding. We loved the chocolate stout and the lamb chimichuri, medium rare, was the best we've ever had. The ambiance was charming with trains going by and live harp music. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

I enjoyed my lamb medallions but it was way over priced. The service is excellent with a good atmosphere. But the plate was small and over priced. I paid about 80 soles for 1 person with no alcoholic beverages. I still was hungry after dinner. first time that has happened at a restaurant.

We stayed at the hotel here and ate at this restaurant for both lunch and evening meals. The beauty being you step off the train from Machu Piccu into this delightful quaint piece of history. The food is cooked in an open kitchen so nothing hidden and the waiters are warm and friendly. Food typically Peruvien producing wonderful flavours that... More

This restaurant has an excellent menu and food to match. The service is very good also. But what made the evening for us was a blind, Peruvian Arpa player who serenaded us throughout the meal.. I actually didn't like it at first. But as my ear attuned to the style of music, I enjoyed him immensely and he added another... More

Stepping through the train station and onto the platform one could be forgiven for thinking this was the famous Harry Potter movie but No it's a terrific find in Ollyantambo Peru where the food is outstanding. Veggies and produce are grown organically here and opportunities to visit the farm are available. Organic chicken beast with summer vegetables was cooked gently... More

Elegant dining, great bar on the train tracks, truly delicious food and sourced from a farm just up the path. Beats the overpriced hotel it's attached to by far!

Very characterful restaurant on railway station. We both ate pasta which was pretty good and (unusually in South America) came with lots of fresh grilled vegetables. Fresh fruit juice was disappointing compared to other places.

Every thing is so very fresh and tastes wonderful. Good variety as there is food for carnivores, vegetarians, fish, and chicken, Nice wine selection. Even good wine by the glass. Recommend the restaurant! Wish I could be there right now.

This was one of the best meals we had during our 10 day stay in Peru. I had the pasta with cream sauce and my boyfriend had the alpaca steak and they were both excellent. If you are staying in Ollantatambo you must eat at this restaurant at least once! I agree with some of the other reviews that it... More
