Description: 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.

Amazing food. The quinoa soup is one of the best that I've ever had, and the lamb was cooked to perfection. The service could've been a bit better, we kept going to look for the server when we needed something, but once we got a hold of them, they were very nice.

I went to this restaurant with some newly acquired Inca trek friends as it was recommended by our Inca trek guide. For starters, we were recommended to try the smoked guinea pig ham (S/.19) which my friends ordered & enjoyed. I shared the Andean twice baked potato (S/. 17) with another-it was very good. For mains, one of the group... More

Cozy restaurant, friendly staff and delicious food for a very reasonable price. I loved the place and the food is so spectacular that I'd recommend this one to anyone who is staying in Cusco.

This is a very nice restaurant. Ideal for lunchtime (if weather permits), since you have an upper terrace with nice views over cuzco city centre. If you go there with some friends you could share some different dishes, all of them with good presentation. The kitchen is visible from a part of the restaurant, which gives you confidence about the... More

Found this place through trip advisor and was really glad we did. Atmosphere was good, the value was excellent for what you get, and the food was the best in cusco. We had a very nice meal for $53 dollars including appetizers, wine, and dessert. Would have gone back multiple times if I had a longer stay in cusco

Marcelo Batata has an amazing selection of foods, a great atmosphere, awesome drinks, and really good service. I visited Marcelo Batata several times during different occasions, and although they took off the menu my favorite items, they complimented for other new ones. A great thing they have is that many plates can be made vegetarian, and all of them are... More

What a delightful meal and experience I had at Marcelo Batata for dinner this evening. Dining solo, the kind staff made me feel very welcome and encouraged mi pobre Espanol. The food is creative and wonderfully tasty. I enjoyed the smoky charred thinly-sliced octopus appetizer (served with an olive tapenade and Peruvian aioli), followed by the house specialty, a perfectly-grilled... More

The food was really good. I had the lemongrass soup and the chicken in yellow pepper souce, both were delicious. However, I would put more than $ for this place as it's not that cheap but worth the price.

Incredible and authentic food. And our super nice waiter, Edson, even arranged with the kitchen to bring out a little cake with a candle for my boyfriend's birthday. Would definitely recommend this place!
