This restaurant is INCREDIBLE!! They have an amazing mix of American, European, even African/Indian foods with traditional Peruvian mixes/accents. The decor is enough to make anyone fall in love with this locale alone. I found it because it was featured in the new edition of Lonely Planet and the food and drinks are to die for. It was by far my favorite restaurant in Cusco; I even went there twice! Absolutely delicious.

The best alpaca

The place was amazing, the service was great and the food was delicious. The alpaca I tried was tender and flavourful (best meat ever). Excellent pisco and drinks.

An entertaining afternoon and very interesting introduction to the Peruvian kitchen. And it is much more then potatoes and pisco sour! A mix of history, cooking, presentation and own experiences with the tips of the cook!

The food wasn't bad, but there was too much reliance on heavy sauces and the portion sizes were huge. Too much sauce and carbs (potatoes and quinoa) for our taste. That said, they had an awesome chicken soup that was more Thai than anything else. Also, the service was exceptional. They bent over backwards for our picky eater tween.

It was our first night in Cuzco, and we had a long list of to-dos, Alpaca steaks, Cuay, Pisco Sours and worrying about the altitude. MB was like an oasis on a quiet dark cold wintery Cuzco night. The cocktails mixed perfectly, the atmosphere cozy, the food spectacular and the service outstanding. The steaks were great, not a fan of... More

Had dinner here a few nights ago, service was great and the food was too. Try the alpaca steak, it was beautifully cooked and very well presented. One of my best meals in South America and not too pricey.

One of the more pricier restaurants in the area, however the food is tasty and the servers are attentive and friendly. The portions were generous: we had alpaca steak and spaghetti with pesto. Although the food is good, we have had equally as delicious meals at cheaper restaurants.
