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.

Very good food in a lively atmosphere. The place picks up considerably after 7:30 pm, so go later for a more convivial evening.

one of my recent discoveries (sorry we haven't met before), got a table on the rooftop on a sunny day and let me tell you it's quite an experience!, great food, nice view, good service, if there is a place you can feel the energy of the city, this is it!

I visited this restaurant with a friend on 17th April and was very very impressed with the quality of the food as well as the attentiveness of the service. I had the Alpaca kebab with lime and mango sauce and the tastes just blew me away. Service here is also second to none. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Really enjoyed our meal here, we sat on the terrace and had nice evening views of Cusco. The menu is quite small and if you don't like Alpaca steak you may struggle but the food was really good. Customers on the terrace are given blankets and patio heaters when the temperature dropped.

Dear BarnabyWastell,

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience with us. We actually consider our menu to be quite extensive as we offer dishes with not only alpaca but beef, lamb, chicken, shrimp, and vegetarian options, as well as stating on our menu that we are willing and capable of making substitutions and changes. Please feel free to visit us again soon in order to be able to try one of our many other dishes!

Thanks again,
Marcelo Batata Staff
