Visited for dinner. Had alpaca steak which tasted much better than the previous one I had in Lima. Others had Lomo Saltada and fish which were also excellent. Dinner for 5 with a bottle of wine was about 300 Soles

A special place on Cusco. Would definitely go back again. Kevin was our server and he was great. He even dealt with a crazy person next to us with nothing but a smile....all class.

We went to Marcelo Batata based on food recommendations and it delivered perfectly. Though the food was amazing (we tried the alpaca with honey and garlic, as well as the chicken aguaymanto), we would never have been able to enjoy such a lovely meal without the help of our friend and waiter, Kevin. He was absolutely spot on with food,... More

Small restaurant offering good fine dining!! The meals are excelent, perfect even peruvian wines, service is good!!! The only week point is the music they are providing. It was mostly a contious selection of latin version of the wold pop music - which is what I do not expect in a good restaurant in Peru...

The guidebook spoke highly of this restaurant's terrace and it was right. Stunning views of the city. The food was really good: as vegetarians we were a little perplexed by the green V symbol next to several meat dishes but the waitress explained that they simply remove the meat from certain dishes. We weren't sure but the meals we had... More

We went right after they opened and were able to get a table for 7 without a reservation. The food was extremely good (we particularly loved the alpaca chili con carne and alpaca steak with honey garlic sauce). Our waiter, Kevin, was friendly and took the time to have a shared dish plated as two individual portions. We all enjoyed... More

Description
Our kitchen offers both tradtional and avant garde cuisine, always focusing on rediscovering age-old recipes that allow us to take yesterday's flavors to today's table. Our specialty is Criolle and Andean cuisine where we highlight the essence of this beautiful mix of varieties that provides us with an endless array of flavors and that each Peruvian carries in their veins. In appreciation for all products we utilize we allow ourselves to play with new flavors and sensations based on the immense diversity of native products available: aji (Peruvian chili pepper), distinct passion fruits, avocados, rice and corn varieties are some of our favorites to explore with. Slow cooking dishes and the high flames of our grill are our favorite preparation techniques to use here at Marcelo Batata.
