Today's insider tip comes from Custom Travel Planner Kim Guth.
Indio Feliz Bistro came recommended to me as the best restaurant in Aguas Calientes, although from the outside it looked like just another basic place to have a bite. Talk about not judging a book by its cover! This place was amazing. Each of the eight tables downstairs was immaculately set with crisp linens and a vase of lilies, hibiscus and other beautiful flowers. In one corner was a working fireplace. Everything I sampled would not have been out of place in a fine Parisian restaurant — minus the prices and attitude, of course. The meal was a dream. Fresh bread and red Chilean wine rounded out the experience. A bit of France in Machu Picchu — who knew!
