We were wiped out from the altitude and traveling to Cusco. We almost canceled our dinner to sleep, but so glad we didn't. This place was hard for our taxi driver to find. It's a small little glass box restaurant outside. The service was amazing and the food was even better. Probably one of the nicest restaurants I've been to... More

The setting of this restaurant in the museum for pre-Columbian art is wonderful. The food is delicious. The service was very good. It is an expensive price fix restaurant. Although this is a small restaurant, a large, noisy group and a family with three very unruly children spoiled our experience. This is NOT, a place for young children. It is... More

MAP was recommended to us by a friend who lived in Lima for 9 years. It is located in a glass rectangle within the courtyard of the museum, just a short walk from the main plaza in Cusco. We visited on a rainy Sunday night and were one of only two tables occupied. Our food, paiche (an Amazonian fish) and... More

MAP is situated in the courtyard of a very fine pre-Columbian museum. It's a thrill to see the rich artifacts of the museum and then dine in an upscale restaurant. As vegetarians, we were accommodated with a good quinoa dish and treated royally by Yefhri, our waiter. This is a serene, quiet Cusco experience, very welcome after a day of... More

Yes, it is on the menu here and yes, I ate it and LOVED it! If you're in Cusco, you absolutely MUST get a reservation at MAP cafe. After a big hotel breakfast and a day of touring, we had a 3:00 reservation and almost had the place to ourselves. Service was great. Ambiance is cool and a little austere,... More

Nice atmosphere, clean, and great service. Food was delicious. I ordered "canelones with quinua" and "limonada de hierba buena". I would totally recommend this place.

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the MAP Cafe with 19 members of a group touring the Peruvian mountain areas around Cusco. Given its location, in the courtyard of a museum, the restaurant might be easy to overlook - don't miss it, it's worth hunting for. Our group occupied two tables that seated 9 and 10 persons each. Our meals... More
