The only choice in Ollanta!

We visited here twice when we were in Ollanta. The family running the place were extremely friendly and the menu has a great range of options, particularly for veggies. The food each time was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend the BLT sandwich!

A great restaurant for any traveler and local. Very fresh and delicious food, lots of options. Does lean towards more "American" dishes, but with a great Peruvian flair. Definitely recommend.

Stopped here for a quick lunch-in the middle of the main square in Ollantaytambo. My sandwich was hot and tasty and my soup (Carrot ginger) tasted homemade and fresh and was very good (including garlic herb croutons). Very nice, friendlyservice.

Excellent find. The plaza in Ollantaytambo is filled with the tourist restaurants with people begging you on the sidewalk to come in for marginal food - like most of the main Plazas in Peru. La Esquina, though 50 yards away, is not the case. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet with good music. The staff is... More

Fantastic bread is used on the bacon, lettuce, tomato & avocado sandwich, as well as on the apple cheese sandwich. Both were delish. The quinoa & tabbouleh salad was good size & delish. The Sacared Valley brewery IPA Stout was awesome, along with the other brews. Lemonade was very, very good, too. Bought breakfast items for tomorrow's train trip that... More

Honestly, I'm torn. La Esquina offers some great food (awesome carrot-ginger soup, tomato-pesto grilled cheese, and a bunch of other delicious things,) craft beer from Sacred Valley brewing, and a nice location right on the main square. Yet the owner/main server is totally dismal, and downright depressing. After visiting several times, I've never seen the guy never smile once. He... More

We stumbled upon this place after one of the most disgusting meals of our lives at another place on the main square and like it so much that we went back each day for a meal or hot chocolate. :) Speaking of the hot chocolate-It was amazing, as was most of the food. We found that all of their cakes,... More

They make a great hot chocolate! My friend had a cappucino and really enjoyed it as well. Recommend anything in their little bakery window as well!
