We stayed at the Inkaterra Hotel, which is an excellent eco friendly resort. The restaurant adjoining the rail line is at the base of the resort and has to be one of the best dining options in Aquas Callientes at the base of Machu Picchu.

Nestled between the train tracks, next to the Urubamba River, at the foot of Machu Picchu. With that as the backdrop, what else could you do but create a marvelous dining experience. Great food and service. Delightful and unforgettable.

Nice lunch menu with delicious choices. Try the pisco sour and the beef tenderloin and you will not be disappointed.

Delicious food with a Peruvian flavor - fresh fruits and vegetables. Dinner and breakfasts were included in the price of the rooms.

The food, the service, the setting....a little slice of luxury on our adventure and not terribly expensive. Next time we will also stay at this hotel.

This cafe is set at the train station. Tracks of PeruRail go by on each side of the triangle-shaped restaurant. Fun location as the trains pulled into the Machu Picchu Station. Three course lunch here, plated and served by great staff. Restaurant and rest rooms were immaculate. Service and food were excellent.

This is the right place to end your trip before taking the train, which is couple minutes away. You'll find yourself in a very confortable place, with... More

We went to Cafe Inkaterra after an amazing day up at Machu Picchu. After a day like that, feeling euphoric, it would be pretty easy to like any meal. But this was a really nice one. The restaurant is pretty and the staff really went out of their way to be helpful. Food was solid with everyone enjoying their meals.... More
