We walked in without a reservation at 6 pm, and were seated in the cafe, but that was not a problem at all, as it was quite amusing to watch the trains load and unload. Also, the menu was the same as the restaurant. Service was outstanding! Very rapid, quick to respond to questions, as well as clear plates. We did not feel rushed with this, in fact, this is what we prefer.
The food was quite delicious. We had grilled steak with chimichurri sauce and mashed potatoes (that must have had basil and some other herbs (very tasty), as well as Aji de Gallina (pulled chicken with yellow pepper sauce - very mild and delicious). We then splurged on dessert and loved the apple strudel, and mocha cake. My first drink was a mojito made with their own distilled spirit from cane sugar and it was awesome, so I ordered an "Irish coffee" made with the same spirit, but it wasn't nearly as good.
If we were to stay in Olly longer, we definitely would go back here.

We managed to get a table here on our one night stay in Ollantaytambo. The food was fabulous, I had a starter of humous and vegetables which was delicious but did fill me up and I couldn't do justice to my main course of chicken with chilli and peanut sauce. Again a beautiful dish but a very large portion. We would definitely go again but possibly once we have acclimatised to the altitude more as this also affected our appetites.

The cuy was crunchy with amazing sauces and potatoes, the alpaca carpaccio was tasty, one of the best locro (pumpikin based peruvian dish).
We were a party of 6 and we really enjoy it

Had a delicious supper here a few nights ago. Every dish was so tasty and most of the food is from their property, including the meat dishes. My friend had the rabbit and it was great. Desserts are especially good.
