    The kitchen at this rustic-chic restaurant, which is along the tracks heading out of town, turns out high-quality gourmet versions of Peruvian classics such as ají de gallina (creamed chicken) with quail eggs and causa (a potato dish) with salmon tartare. The beautifully presented plates are on the small side, so it's best to order at least two courses, or try the tasting menu of 6, 10, or 15 courses.

    An engaging French-Peruvian couple manage one of the town's best restaurants, whose eclectic decor—think maritime kitsch—is worth a visit on its own. Quiche Lorraine, ginger chicken, and spicy trucha a la macho (trout in hot pepper and wine sauce) are favorites on the Peruvian-French fusion à la carte menu, but the reasonably priced (S/77), prix-fixe, three-course menu is the way to go, offering all the same options plus heavenly homemade bread. It's as good a place for dining with friends as for an intimate dinner for two.

    Go for the awesome craft beer, but stay for the delicious food. Everything—from faster pub fare to full meals such as lomo saltado (beef stir-fry), grilled chicken, and osso buco—is served by a friendly, professional staff in a casual setting along the river. The hardwood tables and chairs and the big-screen TV make it seem more like a bar, but the food is as good as you might find in more upscale or trendy restaurants.

    The restaurant in the Sumaq Hotel is a must-experience for foodies thanks not only to culinary offerings that can easily hold their own against anything Lima's finest restaurants can dish out but also to a first-class setting and the utmost in professional yet warm service. European dishes like ravioli are given an Andean slant by stuffing them with ají de gallina, and traditional Peruvian fare is infused with international flavor. Reservations are a good idea, especially if you plan to opt for the six-course degustation menu, a true gastronomic delight.

    Among the best restaurants in Aguas Calientes, this French-owned bistro offers a welcome change from Peruvian cuisine. The dining room and terrace are a bastion of peace and tranquillity, compared to restaurants on the main thoroughfare. Make sure you save room for the chocolate volcano dessert. They also offer a prix-fixe menu of S/58.

    With an owner-chef who hails directly from Italy, you can be sure to find authentic Mediterranean fare here, as well as house-made pasta and Peruvian cuisine. The large, open space has comfortable seating with a cozy fireplace, and the fair prices, especially on the Italian wines, make this a great value. For those who want something a bit simpler, delicious pizzas are also available. With luck, the dessert offerings will include the chef's fabulous tiramisu.

    Paris's loss is Aguas Calientes' gain with the authentic French pastries served here, as well as coffee, sandwiches on house artisanal bread, quiche, and more. Eat in or take some of the delicious choices to go—the excellent boxed-lunch options are perfect for enjoying in Machu Picchu, and they open at 5 am so you can pick them up on the way to the bus.

    Although this casual café is part of the Supertramp backpacker hostel, the food is first-rate, with burgers, pizzas, and salads that are perfect for satiating an appetite forged by hoofing around Machu Picchu. Unlike at many of the places lining the main streets in town, this restaurant's pizza and burgers are worthy of being included in its name, and both are available with a variety of tasty toppings such as blue cheese and jamon serrano (dry-cured Spanish ham). If you come in the evening, be sure to check out the lively rooftop bar.

    This well-established tourist favorite has long tables set up in the center of its cavernous dining room to accommodate the tour groups that come for the huge buffet lunch. In the evening, grilled dishes like trucha andina (Andean trout), beef, or alpaca—served amid the entertainment of a folkloric music show—are better bets than the buffet items. Grab one of the smaller tables by the window for a river view or out on the shaded front patio for some good people-watching.

    Perched high above the streets of Aguas Calientes, this small, wood-paneled restaurant serves some of the best international cuisine in town. Fresh, local ingredients are the backbone for such dishes like quinua salad with goat cheese, gnocchi with lamb ragout, and Thai brochettes. The intimate candlelit dining room is small, so you may want to make dinner reservations. This is the best choice for a romantic dinner.
