Love La Esquina

I lived in the Sacred Valley for 5 months. I lived in Urubamba, but traveled to Ollantaytambo a few times a week for volunteer work. I gave up on trying new restaurants in town because I always wished I had just gone back to La Esquina. I don't even know how many times I ate there. It was a lot.... read more

Great spot for soup and sandwich located on the main square in Ollantaytambo. I had the carrot and ginger soup with a grilled cheese and green apple. I'm describing my meal to let you know that this is not a simple little diner. Very friendly owner

This was a truly great spot. Very atypical for Peru though, I have to say, meaning the vibe was different, the food was not typical Peruvian, etc. But that's not a bad thing! Different is good especially when you're eating Peruvian food all day every day for a year. I loved the food here and the atmosphere was great. Nice... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice - and are planning on eating here again tomorrow. I can't say we've sampled the whole menu, but she's had the soup which was delicious, and I've had the salad bowl twice. We were really needing some good food with fresh vegetables and stopped in here. We left satisfied. The baked goods... More

I had several meals here and was very satisfied with the quantity and quality of the food. The soup came with a basket of delicious croutons, which I devoured. The owner is very friendly and helpful. I especially liked the baked goods and drifted by to pick some up quite a few times.

Found this quaint little place for a late afternoon coffee whilst exploring this little town. Once again like my other coffee shop reviews the cakes are to die for. Another little gem of a place.

A couple of years ago I visited this restaurant when I was in town for the solstice. We actually ate there twice on our visit. The set menu was such a value--fresh, sufficiently served and with a to-die-for brownie that we took to-go because we were so full from the soup and entree. When I visited again in December it...

What a lovely mellow place this is!!! Had a lovely ginger carrots soup, with a bacon, lettuce and tomatoes sandwich, enriched with delicious guacamole; absolutely yummy!!! A great local beer and warm hospitality on top. Salad mix (tabbouleh, chicken and avocado) was excellent too. So: indulge at very mild prices!!

We stopped in for a light snack and I wish we would have been hungrier. The menu had an assortment of creative sandwiches, salads and desserts. We tried the grilled cheese and apple sandwich with zucchini chutney and it was excellent. Cafe con leche was perfect--with just the right amount of frothy steamed milk. All with a fantastic view of... More
