Out of the way but a taste of paradise

Grass hits, beautiful windows, right on the river. Excellent service. Delicious food, had a great lunch for family of 6.

I had lunch here and it was amazing! I had the fish and it was so tasty -- moist and very flavourful! My mom had the chicken and it too was amazing! Would definitely recommend eating here!

The food and setting here are special, but the service is terrible. 3/4 of our party got appetizers and then we waited 30 mins for rest of party. It came only after multiple requests. The service in the bar had been exactly the same. I really wanted this to be good, but it just plain was not. Alas.

This was the best place to eat we found in Aguas Calientes. We were their for 5 days and this place had the best atmosphere and view. It sits at the entrance to the town and the railroad splits and goes around the restaurant. The food is excellent and the service can't be beat. In addition there is a hummingbird... More

Not only did we have a great meal here but they were so helpful in moving us around to a cool spot due to altitude sickness.

We were scheduled for lunch at the Inkaterra Cafe as part of our Macchu Pichu tour. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was filled with other tour groups, so they sent us up the hill to the restaurant in the hotel. The setting was lovely, our service was excellent, and the food delicious and beautiful to behold. Only caveat:... More

We had lunch here as soon as we arrived in town. The Decor is quite fine and chic', even though we are in the middle of a rainforest at the base of Macchu Picchu. The strangest thing about it is that it is located on a strip of land right after the railroad track splits, allowing trains to pass along... More

As part of our tour we had a complimentary lunch at this restaurant. It is beautifull and refine but it has a great problem. The drinks prices are not listed in the tourist menu.They never tell you how much their drinks are. We Ordered 4 pisco sours thinking they were the average price of about 5 soles the equivalent of...

The food and service were great. The lengthy time the dinner took was a bit too much, as we had to get up very early for Machu Picchu.

Our travel company made a mistake and to make up for it they booked our lunch here. WOW!, Service was the greatest and the food was the best on our trip. Probably the best place to eat in town.
