We stayed at El Albergue Hotel so we ended up eating at the restaurant three nights! Yes, it was that good. The menu has so many options (all great) that we had plenty of choices. Many of their vegetables come from El Albergue's organic garden....More

The restaurant seems to be part of the train station, which is a bit bizarre, but also convenient for those about to take a train. We came, with our guide (Max from Enigma Travel), because the travel agency highly recommended it, and with good cause....More

The chef at this restaurant should be in a five star one in Paris or London - the food is amazing and beautifully presented - we didn't try anywhere else and indeed, why would we. The vegetables and herbs are grown in their own local...More

Much more comfortable than the waiting room. Good eats, including items one might not expect in Peru. Good friendly service.

Right at the train station this restaurant was a welcome surprise. They have their own organic garden right there and the food is very fresh and original. Service was a little slow to get started but once we did have a waiter things went quite...More

Located in the Ollataytambo train station one would not expect an excellent restaurant with good service that also serves locally grown foods. They also roast their own local coffee, have an organic farm and have a distillery. Nice harp music at dinner time too.

We loved this hotel and the restaurant did not disappoint. Two out of our party of 3 had a fabulous meal. One that had pasta just said very good. We had cocktails and desert so it was more pricy than typical Peru meals, but we...More

While it may be one of the pricier options in town, if you're going to spend money on a meal en route to Machu Picchu - especially if you're on your way to spend a night or two in the culinary bereft Aguas Calientes -...More

Of all the choices we saw in town, the El Albergue seemed like the best. We were staying at the hotel so it was an easy choice. On the other hand, it's located in a train station so it made us wonder. We had dinner...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How far is your restaurant from Parwa Guest House? Walkable? How many minutes? I don't drive and depends on public transport.

Response from Julia S | Property representative |
Parwa is located 1km from El Albergue, so about 15 minutes walking.
How do I get to your restaurant after I arrive @ Ollantaytambo train station from AC by train leaving AC @ 6.20 pm? The train arrives one hour later, I think. So I arrive about 7.20 pm. What time should I make the reservation for? After dinner can I walk back to my hotel or are there taxis available?
