The desserts were so yummy and it was the only place in town were we found the Sacred Valley Brewing beer. (also very yummy, best beer to date after 4 months in South America) Their menu looked heavenly and we wished we had been hungry enough to eat another meal. Unfortunately, it was our last night in town and we... More

Had a nice glass of wine and a piece of brownie. They have a descent selection of desert and beer and wine. You can sit inside or outside looking at the plaza. Free wifi is good as well. Worth the stop.

I thought this place is great after having pretty decent bread. The carrot cake was a disappointed. It could be better. I went here on one evening just to have a desert. May be desert is not their speciality, I assumed as they are well rated bakey. Understandable that I had a wrong expectation.

Our hosts at Casa de Wow raved about tbe fresh salads here, which is why we came. After looking at the menu though, we opted for a delicious chicken dinner with a ginger carrot soup. This along with a cup of fresh ginger and lemon tea was a great way to end our day of exploring Ollantaytambo. The desserts looked... More

Came here on our first night in Ollantayambo and as we were a bit down with the altitude we ate light. Enjoyed the vegetable soup with homemade croutons. The owner (I presume he was the owner) was very friendly and offered us mate de coca for the altitude. We had hoped to return and try some of their delicious sounding... More

It was a quick, light lunch. My partner had a sandwich, and I their soup of the day. Both great choices. Peruvian beer choices abound, too.

We had the fajitas and a beef sandwich. Both were great. Owner is really friendly. The bakery items were also excellent and some of the best coffee we have had in Peru.

My husband, son and I had several meals at this restaurant. The food was good and we especially enjoyed the friendliness of the owner. I had a local dish of chicken with peanut sauce one night and a BLT with avocado another time. Both meals were very good. My husband and son enjoyed their meals too. The restaurant has a... More

We weren't very hungry, so just had soup for dinner. The carrot ginger was especially good. The young man that waited on us was very friendly and we had fun visiting with him for quite awhile. Even though we didn't have any, the baked goods looked yummy.
