Beautiful view and tasty meal

We enjoyed our lunch here after our Machu Picchu visit. The restaurant was an easy walk from the train station. We sat at a table with a very nice view of the river. The lunch was a 3 course set menu. We had the fish. It was very fresh and tasty. The wait staff was very attentive and polite... read more

Went with an extended family of 10 (including some very sophisticated diners) and nothing but good reviews from the group about both the food and service; enough said in my opinion.

We dined here as part of our tour package, and LOVED the appetizers, entrees and desserts. Many local flavors, gluten-free and vegetarian offerings. Portion sizes were perfect, and service was attentive.

This restaurant is not only part of a unique eco-resort but it is in an old train station between two train tracks. While you're eating you can watch the trains go by and wave at the people on them. In addition the food is excellent with lots of fresh, local food.

We had a pleasant lunch here after a visit to Machu Picchu and found the food and service to be very good. This café has a nice interior and gives the feeling more like being in a tropical resort. It is a bit pricy, but that is not unusual for Aquas Calientes.

The food and service are excellent here, and the location couldn't be more convenient either coming or going to Machu Picchu by train.

Based on reviews, we tried to go to Inkaterra for lunch. The waiter was very kind, but said the only thing offered was a pre-fixe for about 50 sles per person. He did suggest we go to the bar for sandwiches or burgers, but that isn't what I was looking for. Maybe the food is great, or maybe we hit... More
