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.

“Went back for seconds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We were so impressed with menu, the ambiance, the service, and the food ! The rooftop view was delightful, then we returned to enjoy the artistic dining room. Did not find a better fusion of local delights in Cusco, or even Lima.

“Great food and ambience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

My friend and I had an excellent meal seated on the rooftop dining area of this restaurant. The views of Cusco and Plaza de Arma were spectacular and the service excellent.

“Fancy and tasty cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Great and fancy place for lunch or dinner! Definitely not the cheapest option around, maybe a little too touristic menu (lots of fusion I think) but the food is excellent and tasty - nothing to add here. Inside the restaurant all was very beautiful. The rooftop terrace is scenic, even afterdark with all those lights in the mountains. The waiter was fluent in English too. Great place to take pictures and have a decent meal. The night was a little cold though (been there in end of June), even if they got heaters you might want to bring warmer clothes.

Marcelo restaurant make everything for you to diving in another world, the world of Marcelo batata, the atmosphere is colorfull and warmer. Also I was on the roof top to smoke a cigarette and he offer you a gret view of the city center I will come back to chill out with a delicious glass of Wine.

Finaly Marcelo Batata is great choice for people want to have a great time with great food for resonable price.

Thanks Marcelo and thanks at all the staff for this moment.

“Cooking Class At Marcelo Batata”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

My boyfriend and I really enjoy cooking and learning and trying new foods. The cooking class offered here satisfied all of these things! Chef Ebelin was knowledgeable, personable, a great teacher and most importantly, a fantastic chef! While she was teaching us about all of the native grains, potatoes, corn, etc. that grow in Peru, appetizers were brought in for us to try. They were incredible and made the experience so enjoyable. If you have time and enjoy cooking, i highly recommend this class. Five hours sounds like a long time, but honestly, it flies by.
