The food was fast and so tasty. I loved the staff and the service. We were so surprised to find this in such a small village. If we lived here we would be there all the time. Thanks again

We couldn't believe this restaurant existed in Ollantaytambo. The food, atmosphere, quality of the cuisine and service were excellent. We came there twice for dinner over 5 nights. It is one of the two places we would recommend to eat fabulous dinner in Ollantaytambo. Thank you for being there Panaka Grill!

Panaka Grill certainly seems to be one of the higher end places in Ollantaytambo. The decor is beautiful and the setting is relaxing (unless one of their big groups are in). They have a set menu for 25 PEN, another for 35 PEN, and then you can order from the menu too. The Lomo Saltado was decent, though not as good as we've had in the cities, the Aji de Gallina was pretty thick and not great. The Quinoa soup was quite good, and we were full after eating it. They seem to have pretty decent desserts.

We enjoyed our meal at Panaka Grill, and can recommend to others to try this place. Pickings are slim in backpacker-hostel-land Ollantaytambo, but this is a cut above, in particular just for the classy, comfortable decor.

I have eaten here a few times and its always a treat. The decor and ambience here is just miles ahead of anywhere else in Ollantaytambo, with lots of interesting photos on the walls taken by Martin Chambi and local art. Even the tables are painted. All very tasteful. There is a balcony with a really excellent view of the plaza, a great place to people watch, especially during the many fiestas Ollantaytambo enjoys, and a couple of tables outside too right on the plaza. There are lots of sofas inside, most unusual here!

The grills are highly recommended, very tasty, and the tiradito I tried was really excellent too, the best ceviche for miles. The cuisine is partly Peruvian and partly International, with something for everyone, some interesting combinations of local ingredients and the service is very professional too. There is a much better range of desserts that is common in Peru. The kitchen is very clean, I have never heard of one of my guests get sick here, which I cant say for any other place in town. The coffee and hot chocolate is good too, and the wine list is really extensive.

Panaka Grill is a beautifully designed restaurant where you walk in and immediately feel relaxed as if you were in the comfort of your own home. Panaka Grill has a diverse menu with many local favourites as well as more familiar western options. The staff are kind, helpful, and eager to make your visit a memorable one. Be sure to sip some delicious coffee on one of the patios with a great view of the main square. There are even games to occupy younger travellers.
