Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: In 2011 we started a small organic farm. We produce many of our own vegetables, quinua and potatoes. Our farm is worked without agrochemicals or synthetic fertilizers, using many traditional techniques (plowing with oxen, rotating crops and biological controllers for pests & disease). A traditional Incan meal cooked on hot rocks, the Pachamanca Lunch includes a tour of our hotel, farm, Canazo distillery and coffee roastery. Lunch includes chicken, pork, and lamb, potatoes, organic vegetables and salad, and chicha morada. It is served at covered picnic tables with views of the mountains, glaciers and archeological sites. We accommodate most dietary restrictions. For guests not staying with us, we ask for a 50% deposit in advance. Cancellations or modifications must be made before 8pm the day prior to the reservation, otherwise we charge the full amount of the deposit as a cancellation fee. Daily at 11am, 1pm, & 3pm; $40USD (Adult), $30USD (Child); total duration: approx. 2 hours.

The setting of this restaurant, at the train station to Machu Picchu, is wonderful. You can feel the excitement of the train passengers passing to and fro. Our food was also very good, with all the ingredients sourced locally. If only our waiter had checked on us occasionally we might have given this place five stars!

We spent a great afternoon at the farm learning about the produce, followed by a BBQ that was made with century old technique; with meat and vegetables laid to rest directly on heated stones, then covered by cloth, then dirt.

This was a very nice meal prepared in an earth covered oven on super-heated rocks. It was amazing to watch the process and the food was excellent!

The food was great but it is not so much about the food as the experience. It is a glimpse into the history, culture and traditions of Peru. It is an education in science and art in one . It is the beauty of nature all around you and how elements of fire and earth can be combined to create a meal to sustain one. Enjoy it with your family and friends.It is truly an experience to remember and I for one will always cherish this memory.
