My 16 year old son and I had just finished a hike on Huayna Picchu and were exhausted and famished when we went into the Tinkuy Buffet. While my expectations were high because of the Belmond location and the price of admission, the fact that it was a buffet, did temper those expectations. While the food did strike me as... More

After a long morning walking around Machu Picchu it was great for the family to sit down and take our time eating and drinking. The desserts were very good and everyone found something they liked. It also had clean bathrooms for everyone. We booked it along with a package so I am not sure how much it costs, but after... More

You can bundle this restaurant with your train ticket for just $10 - otherwise it's $45 once you get to Machu Picchu and you realize what a gauging nightmare that place is. By all means make reservations ahead of time and enjoy it as it's one of only TWO places to eat at Machu Picchu. Food at the Sanctuary Lodge... More

we had lunch their two days in a row, cost is about $45 per person. A lot of selection but good taste was average, soda beverages and water fountains were there that made it easy to get drinks and refills, this was very helpful as the place gets very busy at lunch time.

We purchased the train tics w/ the buffet option, so around $35 for the buffet?!? I was contemplating this since the reviews were mixed. But since I was traveling with my adult sons so it made sense to eat here, as they will be starving after a very early breakfast and climbing MP. Lots of good variety- from pork loin,... More

A lot of food choices at this buffet, and great Peruvian food. Our meal was covered by our tour company, so unclear whether or not the price is worth it, for those who paid for a ticket.

Great location, just before the entrance to Machu Picchu. Lots of international food choices. Food was great and was very well presented. The price is expensive but for someone who is tired and hungry, this place is of great help!....also if you know you are going to eat here at the end of your tour and you need to use... More

While not a lover of buffet style restaurants, this restaurant is located in the Sanctuary Hotel and is one of the few casual options immediately near Machu Picchu. Selection is good (both hot and cold) and is a reliable option vs the adjacent a la carte option.
