This was recommended by some fellow travellers we met along the way. Later we found it is very well known for its llama meat. Friendly atmosphere and the llama meats were divine. Good large portions and presentation was immaculate. We actually came back a second time we loved it so much. The menu is varied and the pisco spurs are... More

We started with the tamales and had the Alpaca tenderloin with a mushroom... More

Great restaurant - if you can, get a table on the rooftop terrace for lunch, or early dinner. Book ahead, it fills up fast!

My life partner and I were in search of a place to celebrate the end of our inka trail hike and fresh engagement. We were not aware that one needed a reservation, but the hostess was kind enough to fit us in. We ordered the humus with roasted eggplant and zuccini as an appetizer, maracuya Pasco sours, followed by the... More

The place get busy at night. But we managed to get a seat. The food very tasty. Al Paca steak is a must try delicacy. Yummy homemade potato chip was served as starter. I loved the homemade sauces. Overall was very happy with the meal.

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.
