This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but certainly somewhere to visit whilst in Cusco - and not just for the (very excellent) alpaca steaks, but also for some classic Peruvian wine, as well. Recommended.

We went as a large group here and maybe that is why the service was not very good. As an example they did not offer coffee or desert to anyone. That being said, several of us selected one of the several alpaca tenderloin meals they...More

Prime location in the historic district. Highly recommend the choclo con fondue appetizer. I would best describe it as Peruvian Mac & Cheese. Big pieces of corn with a cheesy sauce & cheese curds. Extremely comforting. I tried the papa rellena clasica and although i...More

When we first got here, we were a little turned off by the appearance of the restaurant and I almost asked my husband to leave but I am SO glad we stayed. We sat on the roof, with an amazing 360 degree view of Cusco....More

A very good restaurant, fresh products, very good choices of pisco sour. You have to ask for the terasse as it is an amazing view of the city, especially at night.

Amazing food. Great service. They make chosing a vegetarian meal very easy - they simply mark dishes which can be turned into its vegegarian versions. They offer homemade potato chips with delicious salsa made of local herb (the waiter was kind enough to repeat the...More

We had a large group and reserved an upstairs table. But it looked like there were plenty of walk-in tables available.

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.
