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.

Great food and staff

The food was excellent. The staff was nice especially the manager Pablo. He was very attentive and gave us great advice on the menu as well as things to do in the city. I highly recommend Marcelo Batata.

We just stopped by this place to have a drink because we heard they had a rooftop garden. What a beautiful view!! There are only three tables, though, so your timing is critical. Our two glasses of wine and great potato chips cost less than we paid elsewhere.

We have been travelling for 2 months now (Colombia, ecuador, peru) and this place definitely stands out. My gf and I had the alpaca stake (spicy) and lomo saltado, both exceeded our boldest expectations! Excellent staff and a stellar view from the rooftop. Highly recommended!

The food was great we... More

The place was packed but we decided to wait, and boy we were not disapointed ! This is simply the best restaurant we have been in our 2 weeks trip in Peru. The atmosphere was trendy but warm, the service top notch and the staff very friendly. Menu is really original, greatmix of Peruvian style with a modern fusion touch.... More

Don't let the look inside fool you, the service is very friendly and professional. The food is beautifully presented (many customers were taking pictures of their dishes) and the taste was incredibly flavorful. Our family had a real good time and bellies more than full with wonderful food!

We had a delicious lunch: Sesame-Chicken "Causa", Alpaca Steak with "Quinoto" and salad and tried a "Chicha Sour", instead of the traditional Pisco Sour. It is one of the best restaurants we have tried!!! Also, the waitress was amazing: she even explained the process of making the Chicha Sour! We highly recommend it.
