Great service and food with local flavors. All dishes were beautifully decorated and tasty! The restaurant is clean and there's plenty of selections for everyone in the family. Price is also very reasonable given the service, food quality and presentation.

This place was very good. The portions sizes were much better than I expected. One of the best parts was our server Soraida. She was very knowledgeable, accommodating, and spoke English very well (which helps). I would defiantly recommend.More

Loved this restaurant in Cusco. The best we had. All in our group lived the food and atmosphere. Excellent service and delicious Pisco Sour. The chicken curry was divine as were the meat and potato 'balls'

Are reservations required to eat here? I will be a group of two. I'm considering this for my birthday meal but will not have the time to make reservations.

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

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.
