Machu Picchu Restuarant Recommendation: Indio Feliz

Nestled in a small alley of Aguas Calientes, 1,000 feet below the Machu Picchu ruins, lies Indio Feliz, one of the culinary treasures of the Cusco area. We highly recommend a visit to this quirky restaurant.


The restaurant features a pirate theme; upon entering, you will want to take a moment to explore the different rooms. Entirely painted by hand, you will find many unique portraits, paintings, and designs that cover every possible inch of space on the walls and ceiling. The rooms are comfortable, some even feature a fireplace for those chilly Machu Picchu evenings. Once you’ve picked your desired table, you can turn your focus to food, which is where the real magic happens.

A French-Peruvian fusion, Indio Feliz serves a variety of creative dishes. We recommend that you order their s./55 “menu,” which includes an appetizer, entree, and dessert. It will be hard to find something that you don’t enjoy, but if you’re stuck between options, we recommend that you try the french onion soup (comes with a bowl of Andean cheese on the side), the beef brochettes (which are tender and flavorful), and the orange pie for dessert (which is really the only way to end the meal).

I lived in Peru for 3 years between 2010 - 2014. During that time I researched and wrote full-time about traveling and living in Peru. I've owned and operated Destination Peru since 2012. I've always had a special interest in the Peruvian Amazon, not only because I think it has so much to offer, but because my wife's family is from the Loreto area. My favorite food of all-time is Peruvian Ceviche. Please feel free to reach out anytime: #PeruIsWaitingForYou
