“Delightful interesting meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Peruvian dining is growing on us. MAP is a very fine dining experience, blending Peruvian flavors via new textures and combinations. We loved our dinner. The service was better than excellent, and the price was quite reasonable ... 150USD for two, we each had three courses and drinks. When in Cusco dining here is a must.

“super gourmet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Lovely setting, highly reviewed, a bit fancier than we thought it would be and a little pricier than we expected. They had a price fix that night, which was more food than we needed, so we ordered one price fix and another main and shared. We arrived early and were the only ones there, with overly attentive wait staff.(straightening out our forks and knives...) food was beautiful, fresh, very well prepared, even if a little over priced. Lovely, peaceful, quiet ambiance in colonial courtyard off of Museum of PreColumbian Art

“Seriously, best restaurant in Cuzco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

OK, if you had told me that a museum cafe would out-shine the 5 to 7 star hotel restaurants where I also had meals, I would have scoffed. But really, it is true. Excellent, excellent food and the best service I received in Cuzco (where service is generally very, very good).

“What a Great Multi-course Dinner in a Glass Box!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

I had read how good the MAP Cafe was on Trip Advisor, and made a reservation based on the positive reviews- and was not disappointed. This turned out to be my favorite dinner in Peru. The menu was only offered as a three course meal with you choice of an appetizer, main, and dessert for 165 soles. You had the choice of 5 or 6 selections in each category. Yes, the most expensive meal of my visit in Peru, but a bargain by US standards. The service was world class, each dish perfection, and the surroundings, a glass box inside a colonial mansion's courtyard, was so magical. A very special dinner.
