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.

“amazing pervuian food!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

If you are looking for typical Peruvian cuisine, I would strongly recommend "Marcelo Batata" with its great menu with lots of really delicious dishes. The place and the terrace view is also amazing! We stayed 5 days in Cuzco and the best food I've tasted during those days was in Marcelo Batata. Their dishes of alpaca or lamb tastes amazing! People who work there are really kind and friendly as well. If we go there once again one day, we'll be only eating in Marcelo B for sure! :)

“very nice!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I visited the restaurant in June 2012. I found that service was good, although as a single diner I was seated at a rather odd table facing the grill and felt a little out of place. The waiters walking by also caused the table to wobble on occasions. Apart from this everything was superb. I had a really enjoyable pisco-politan cocktail and have Tripadvisor to thank for my food choice. Before I visited I saw here that someone had recommended the cheese and apple sandwich. Its not something that I normally would have chosen, but it was absolutely delicious! Would definitely go back. Would be good for a group meal too I think as there is a nice, laidback feel to the place!

“Wonderfully delicious food with an awesome atmosphere”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Came here for a cooking class but also tried at what the restaurant had to offer as well. They've got a nice bar with rows and rows of piscos they've infused themselves (with loads of interesting flavors like rosemary, mint, fruits, etc.). This restaurant is just full of fun - it had the best atmosphere of any restaurant we dined at in Cusco (we pretty much ate our way around Cusco). Erick and his wife are wonderful to just chat with. You can tell the both of them have a genuine love for their country and culture (and its cuisine).

There's a cool rooftop deck to check out as well (it's the only one in Cusco so better go)! We enjoyed the view with some amazing cocktails. Do yourself a favor and GO HERE! Loved this restaurant - it was certainly one my top 3.

“Delcious!! Awesome Atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who had visited Cusco. We were immediately impressed with the friendly knowledgable staff. They suggested appetizers and yummy drinks while we looked at the menu. Our first trip we were a threesome, checking it out. We were impressed enough to come back with some other friends and were not disappointed. The food was delcious and the decor warm and inviting. We felt well taken care of and left happy and satisfied. Highly recommend!!
