Sacred Valley:

  • Huacatay: With a menu based on typical products such as alpaca meat, quinoa, tarwi, corn, vegetables and spices from the Sacred Valley, El Huacatay is a sophisticated proposal with a Cusco touch in the heart of Urubamba. With a warm atmosphere and a pretty garden, it is a small restaurant that developed long before the Peruvian gastronomy boom and its cuisine is considered one of the most creative in Cusco.
  • 3 KEROS / AV. TORRECHAYOC, URUBAMBA Good atmosphere, good food! Delicious trout and shrimp ceviche and quinoa mushroom risotto!!!! Umm deli! I recommend it... Oh and it's open every day! 
  • TUNUPA VALLE / URUBAMBA Set in a superb hacienda, on the banks of the Urubamba River, Tunupa offers one of the best buffet lunches in the Sacred Valley. 
  • MANTAY / OLLANTAYTAMBO Mantay is our restaurant located in Ollantaytambo, a historic neighborhood known as the living Inca town, about 200 m. from the Ollantaytambo archaeological park.  

Aguas Calientes

  • INDIO FELIZ / LLOQUE YUPANQUI 4-12 Without a doubt, the best restaurant in the area. At Indio Feliz, you'll find original but simple cuisine, based on fresh, local products. The portions are generous and will satisfy you after (or before!) visiting Machu Picchu. We highly recommend the experience.
