Best meal in cusco! The sites were amazing, the food was great, service was superb and the drinks were, well, yummy as well! Can't beat this place. It's the only place with this kind of view.

A bustling and lively place to eat, with outdoor seating as well as indoors. Lovely servers, friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent, especially the soups. Great wine list and cocktails.

We had a really nice meal here after a long day of walking around town. It was recommended by our hotel, and did not disappoint. Very nice high-end Peruvian dishes, with a great view from the rooftop and surprisingly good service. We really enjoyed the drinks, and had a few rounds. Even the dessert was excellent and very well presented.... More

I lived for a year and a half in Peru and one of my hobbies, like many other Peruvians', was eating. So, in Cuzco we went, thanks to a recommendation, to Marcelo Batata and I will never regret it. The food was delicious.

We stumbled upon this little gem and were quite surprised. We sat on the rooftop and had an amazing view of Cuzco and the surrounding mountains. Then they brought out the food and we were floored with how much, high quality, food that your dollar went for. Absolute must if you near it, best to stop in after touring the... More

The food was absolutely delicious! As we were getting ready for the attitude, we avoided drinking wine, hence made plans to return and enjoy the excellent food and service with some... More

We went to this restaurant highly ranked expecting good food and good service and we were extremely disappointed. It was our worst meal in Cusco, we left even without wanting to taste the dessert. There is an open kitchen where you can see the lack of order and communication between the kitchen and the staff where they are yelling and... More

My wife and I booked reservations for dinner. Excellent choice... we were so glad that we did. They took exceptional care of us. The food is excellent! Try the Alpaca tenderloin in the spicy sauce. It will blow you way!!!

I have been in this restaurant but I could't taste any of their plates: the staff allowed me and my partner to take a table on the terrace, where another couple was sit, but then they left us there for almost 30 minutes, without even bringing us the menu. Result: we decided to leave for a better attended place. This... More

We had dinner here on a cold winter night, the place was packed ad they only had a table...outside! However, there were heaters all over the place, and they provided us with warm blankets.The food was good and well presented, we even tried the pizza (which we normally don't, since we are Italian...) ad it was pretty good. Nice service... More

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.
