Aguas Calientes Near Machu Pichu

Hey hounds. What is the best restaurant here? There is nothing on the board about it except to "be careful" about where you eat. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  1. I was only there for a day, but I had lunch at Indio Feliz, and it was pretty good. (From what I heard, great food is hard to find there.) The food was fresh and really pretty. I'm vegetarian, and I was with a group with all different diets, and everyone found food they liked.

    The portions were much larger than I expected, but I also had a low appetite at the altitude.

    1. agreed, for a sit down place, Indo Feliz is your best bet. If you are more into the "local" fare there is a market near the square center and if you go up the stairs there are market food stalls having the usual Peruvian fare arroz y pollo and juice bars. Across the bridge by the soccer field there are some food vendors set up there.
