The food, the service, the atmosphere were all impeccable! I am not a foodie but I do appreciate good food. And this is the type of restaurant that does everything well so they absolve you of any fussy food anxieties. Well done-- I recommended it to other travelers on their way to Cusco.

We walked across the street from our Hotel Monesterio to the MAP cafe for dinner and a quick tour of the Museum. The price fix menu was excellent as was the service! This is hardly a cafe.

what a great restaurant -- absolutely gorgeous location inside the precolombian art museum, and the food is divine. we had a luchuma (sp) gazpacho which was heaven -- the flavors, the colors - and that's just one of the many dishes. staff warm and pleasant. not inexpensive, but worth it if you want a splurge.

This restaurant is part of the pre columbian museum and the atmosphere and food are great. The deserts really stand out and the menu has a large variety from meat to fish to vegetarian. It is right near Hotel Monasterio in Peru. Reservations are recommended

Nested inside the Pre-Columbian Art Museum, the MAP Cafe was definitely a refreshing culinary surprise to us. The restaurant was like a glass container and the ambience was nice. Service was great. Food was delicious with sophisticated presentation. Never expect this kind of restaurant at Cusco and the MAP Cafe is definitely not to be missed.
