The town of Aguas Calientes near Machu Picchu has numerous restaurants, each offering its own (often not authentic) take on traveler-tested and approved plates like pizza, Mexican, and Chinese, as well as typical Andean food. Andean fusion, a gourmet play on traditional Peruvian fare, is available at better restaurants, as is the case throughout Peru. The busiest hours are between 1 and 3 and then again when dinner begins around 7 and tour groups tend to be gathering. Nevertheless, most places are open all afternoon if you wish to eat in between those times. Things typically start winding down around 9.
