A Quick Overview

Due to the mountainside location of Machu Picchu there is limited space for restaurants. Therefore, options for eating at Machu Picchu are also rather limited. In fact there are just 2 options: the Tinkuy Restaurant at the Sanctuary Lodge Hotel and the Machu Picchu snack bar. All other restaurants are located in the village of Aguas Calientes 30-40 minutes from Machu Picchu. Eating inside the archaeological site is strictly prohibited, but visitors can use the small area close to the entrance to eat a box lunch. Some hotels and certain restaurants/patisseries offer freshly prepared box lunches. The La Boulangerie de Paris (see below) owned by a talented and charismatic French ex-pat is one such place.
