My family and I have spent 4 days in Ollantaytambo, using it as a sort of base camp for various hiking/ruin exploration in the surrounding area. Something we learned quickly is that almost every restaurant in Ollantaytambo has the exact same menu with (pretty much) the exact same prices. They may be mixed around, but the end result is the same number of offerings with the same amount of variety. The only unknown factors are; How good is your chef? And How good are the specials?
This place had great specials (especially for large groups coming back from Machu Picchu or the Ollantaytambo ruins, and had an above average chef. Our server seemed to be the eldest son (about 7) of the couple that owned the restaurant and while he was not very efficient, he was very friendly and guided us through (in Spanish) the different specials and what was good/not good.
All told, my family of 4 had enough food for about 8 people without realizing and the bill came out to about 92 sols. (A little under $30 USD).
My only word of warning is for anyone using a CREDIT CARD. Businesses in the area (this one included) will push trough your charge in USD if you don’t specify. You will incur a 3.5% additional charge and a terrible conversion rate. If you pay with a card, make sure to pay in Soles.
