Delicious!

I was staying at this Hotel in 2009 for a few days. I had a few meals at this restaurant. One night they even had a live musician! I tried most things on the menu and would recommend everything.

This restaurant is located at the train station (literally on the train platform) Eating at this restaurant was one of our favorite experiences in Ollantaytambo and is totally worth the 10 minute walk from town. The food was excellent, and the upscale atmosphere right next to the trains entering and exiting the station was next to none in town. From... More

We were staying at the hotel so ate dinner here twice. I would recommend this as one of the best restaurants in the area and worth getting off the train from Aguas Callientes for. The drinks were good and I can particularly recommend the locally brewed IPA. This is not a cheap restaurant but the food is tasty and pleasantly... More

Instead of the Farmlunch we opted for their normal restaurant. We had a great lunch here; alpaca burger and pasta with grilled fresh veggies. Food was delicious, juices were great and the service was spot on as well.

I had the alpaca steak and it was magnificent. Great ambience and right next to the train station in Ollantaytambo. Wonderful staff and they even turned the lights out for 10 minutes to save energy (or to help the world as they put it). Very quaint and beautiful. A must visit if you're there!

The ancient Inca empire did not eat this good of organic food. We stayed here two nights and ate at the Inn. So glad we did. A good location for the getting the train up... the train station is at the front door. The food was really good. Staff was great. Love the harpist who played one night.

The food was amazing! Considering we weren't expecting over the top dining in the Sacred Valley we were pleasantly surprised. Freshly prepared meals with wonderful local flavors and organic produce. The pasta is homemade and delicious!! We ate here three nights in a row. Normally we like to try new places but every time we decided to go back. All... More

We stayed in the hotel and basically had all our meals from the El Albergue restaurant while we were in Ollantaytambe. Everything was excellent, especially the service. Miguel fed us every night and was up to greet us for breakfast each morning. We also ordered their box lunches to bring with us to Machu Picchu and they were wonderful and... More

Delicious, fresh and innovative food. The atmosphere was great. we had a waitress in training but the service was good. Prices were cheap by American standards, but at the high end for Ollantaytombo.
