We stayed at the hotel and was pleased with all the meals we had at the restaurant. It is not a fancy restaurant but the food quality is very much commensurate with the cost. The alpaca appetizer was cooked just right, i.e. not overdone or drenched with sauce that we had in Cusco, and the quinoa arugula salad was also... More

Dinners comprise of vegetable grown on their farm next to the hotel and pastas made every morning fresh and hug in the kitchen to dry. Meals from $10 to $20 US provide a hearty meal. Ambiance like eateries found in Europe.

We loved the location, on station platform of La Albergue; occasional trains pulling in. Very enchanting and romantic. Excellent food, great live music (acoustic stringed instrument and singing), lovely design of the main room, great friendly service. This is a really lovely place, and booking absolutely essential. The walk down to the station from the town is long, quite polluted... More

Didn't expect to find such a cozy restaurant in the train station after our visit to Macchu Picchu. The food and the service are very good. The decor is cozy and the ambiance very warm

Both mains that we add--vegetable lasagne with zucchini and pumpkin stew were excellent and the atmosphere was nice (soft music in the background).. We thought the wine prices were high in relation to the food. Giving 4 stars vs 5 because the service was somewhat indifferent.

Fantastic restaurant with a good atmosphere, craft beer and excellent food. We both had alpaca steak for mains, which were great and presented well with just the right amounts of berry sauce, green mashed potato and vegetable garnish. This left room for dessert and my crème brulee and partner’s brownie tasted good and looked even better. All accompanied with a... More

It's located at the train station, which is a bit isolated from the centre, around 10-15 minutes walk. Different from most restaurants in the town, it offers cosy atmosphere with excellent service and a menu of local dishes with European twist. The prices are not much higher than other restaurants, with a main course being around 30 soles, soups 16-18.

This was a perfect introduction to Peruvian cuisine. Loved the roasted alpaca skewers, great Pisco sours, and the fresh trout. They brought us ceviche samples and had excellent service throughout. In addition we enjoyed the harp/vocalist dressed in traditional garb.

We decided to eat at the hotel restaurant while staying at the El Albergue. Food, service, atmosphere and prices were all excellent. Many vegetarian choices on the menu. Very small, so make a reservation.

Went there with two friends for dinner. Friendly staff despite the high number of clients. Food was tasty and prices were fair. Garden at the back is perfect to relax. Definitely one of the best address in Ollantaytambo!
