Delicious Food in a Unique Setting

After an exhausting trek around Machu Picchu we were delighted to find this haven from the bustling tourist crowds. Its location between the railway tracks at the end if the station did not seem promising from the outside, but inside it is another world under a soaring thatched roof. The... read more

You can;t say Inkaterra is on the wrong side of the tracks; it's between them. The room is quite pleasant and my dining companions agreed that the food was good, despite the occasional wafting of fumes from the trainyard.

After spending two days in Machu Picchu, we were on a later afternoon train and decided to have lunch at the Cafe of the hotel where we had been staying. We clearly chose well! I've read some reviews that they thought their fixed price menu was expensive but at 58 Sol (or $18) to get three courses seems like a... More

Kind of pricey (for Peru) with a set menu. They were great to work with though! I have Celiac and my husband can't eat dairy. They worked with us and even had Gluten Free bread!!! Neither of us got sick and the food was really good. Cool atmosphere right by the train tracks as well.

We had a group lunch here as part of a National Geographic Tour. The restaurant is located between the railroad tracks so you can watch the trains come and go. We all had the chicken dish and some rice/sides which were very good. The service was quick considering our size. It would be interesting to go back and try some... More

We spent three nights at the Inkaterra and dined in the Cafe two of the three evenings. Everything was delicious. Great service and food. I highly recommend Café Inkaterra.

Dinner at Cafe Inkaterra was a great way to end the day at Machu Picchu. It is a quiet room, good service, an excellent menu and an adequate wine list. In sum, it's a different level than many of the MP offerings. One member of our group (3 couples) had the guinea pig which was made into a stew. A... More

The atmosphere at the restaurant is relaxing and beautiful, just like the hotel. The staff is attentive and helpful. The menu offers just enough variety without being overwhelming.

Nice restaurant located within the Inkaterra Hotel. The food is worth you staying around and avoiding heading into town. I can't comment on the price due to the fact that I was with a tour group and it was included. None the less, the food is worth eating there. Just like the hotel, great atmosphere and even better service.

The restaurant was average. Some good dishes. I was there with my two college age children and they found the menu a little limited.
