I wanted to try cuy with my wife, and this seemed like a good place to do so. It was located right behind our hotel, but due to the spelling being slightly different than TA, our hotel pointed us in the to l wrong way. It is past the main square, opposite direction of the train station, near Hostal Iskay.... More

Everything we ordered was wonderful. Meals are a very decent size and well presented. The service was a little slow but to be fair the night we were there they were very busy with groups of 8 and 9 arriving throughout the evening. And they did warn us that the kitchen was being slammed and to bear with them.

We loved the family feel of the place and enjoyed conversing with other guests meanwhile our "cuy" was prepared. We also loved their quinoa soup and rocotto relleno. The cuy also came with some alpaca meat. We are now recommending the place to anybody heading to Ollantaytambo.

We went here on the recommendation of our Inca Trail guide since we wanted to get some good local Cuy (guinea pig) while in the highlands. The place is a little hard to find, we went for dinner and its definitely in the more local part of Olly-- we got a little lost in the dark walking there but got... More

I've been here several times now and also send clients there (I own a tour oeprator). El Huacatay never disappoints in surprising myself and my clients with super original, enormously tasty dishes born from the creativity of the owner and the chef. All-Peruvian ingredients, but in combinations that I never see anywhere else. Not the cheapest place, but very, very... More

Authentic Peruvian food is delicious and inexpensive. This is does not have either. Our food was bland and it cost s/20-s/25 per meal. Down the street at Sergio's we had the Menu of the Day (soup, main and drink) for s/6 per person.

We got dinner here simply because it was right behind our B&B (Hostal Iskay), and it was deserted, the waitress was slow and a bit clueless, and we waited forever. But then... it was so good! The guacamole with yuca sticks was huge, super-fresh and delicious, and the lomo (sirloin) with Huacatay sauce (served separately) was top-notch: big chunks of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the meals that we spent at El Huatacay! It is not easily found but once we found it (by chance), we kept craving their food. Try the guacamole with yucca sticks (?) for dipping. It is great. The owners have the cutest little daughter who greeted us and kept us entertained. We loved the stuffed peppers, the... More

Our hotel staff recommended this place. We were the only diners, which was a downer. Excellent stuffed peppers and Yucca chips. Friendly service. Not too sure about the squealing caged guinea pigs (cuy) in the yard on the way in...are they being fattened up for the tourists?
