We had dinner on the rooftop here while in Cuzco. It was quite chilly but our Canadian blood, plus provided blankets and patio heaters made it an enjoyable, outside in winter dinner experience. The lights of Cuzco looked like stars in the night sky, fireworks...More

Staff here are really polite and friendly. The food is delicious and the view from the roof terrace is lovely. Would definitely recommend.

We never really planned to visit Marcelo Batata, in fact we were booked for lunch at MAP cafe but there was no vegetarian food for my wife at MAP and they weren't keen on improvising, hence we had to look elsewhere. I had heard about...More

Stopped in for a glass of wine and the view. Wish i had been hungry b/c would have loved to try the food. They had outside heaters, blankets and were extraordinarily welcoming too!

Accidentally passed this restaurant. There was actually no place in the restaurant, but the waiter offered us a place next to the stairs of the rooftop terrace. Despite this, the service was absolutely perfect. Very kind waiter who really took the time to explain everything...More

Good menu, varied alternatives. Friendly and informative service. Food was tasty and presented in an attractive way. Good options also for drinks. Not cheap, but still value for money!

The restaurant itself is very good, but there's a lot more than just the restaurant itself. The rooftop has an insane view of the entire city, and at night the entire city is lit up making the most beautiful panoramic view. We were even serenaded...More

Saw Marcelo Batata in my guidebook and was curious so I gave it a try. Glad I did, excellent food. I had the black sesame chicken causita and vegetable quinoa soup. Portions were large and my soup basically came out in a cauldron! Loved it....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.
