I am so glad we found this little gem of a restaurant. During our 4 day stay in Ollantaytambo, we went there for lunch, dinner and anytime in between we just could. We were so glad we coukd find that place among the numerous pasta &pizza bistro-like eateries in the village, where you just step in and want to step... More

I have no doubt that this was the best restaurant in Ollanta. Delicious meal but be prepared for the service to be a little bit slow. You get the sense at the height of dinner there's very limited bandwith for the number of diners.

All of the food was delicious. We tried the local foods and loved them, the stew, alpaca steak, hamburger, pasta with vegetables and the green chili pepper. The brownie was ok. Breakfast buffet has many choices.

The happy hour is 2 for 1 until 7pm. The maracuya pisco sour was yummy and the bar snacks spicy. Great atmosphere and nice people.

Try to make a reservation in advance as this place is small and they fill up fast. The power went out when we arrived before the 1st seating and they lit lots of candles everywhere for an amazing romantic dinner. Live harp/vocal folk musician was fantastic and the food was excellent, prepared in a small kitchen adjacent to the dining... More

We had a quick lunch here after checking into the great hotel. I ordered the chicken avocado mango chutney sandwich with salad, my wife had the quinoa soup. They were both very fresh, although the soup broth could've used some more flavoring. Overall though the food is excellent.

This place utilizes two inca terraces to farm their own organic vegetables and quinoa. We ate a breakfast, lunch and dinner here. all were excellent and fresh. The service is great and a nice open kitchen really give a homey feel to this place.

The reviews below made me keen to try the restaurant but I was left disappointed. The kitchen was overwhelmed and our food staggered out in drips and drabs so none of us were eating at the same time. The room was incredibly noisy and dark so I could not see or hear my dining companions. The food was average and... More
