Fodor's Review

Museum eateries don't routinely warrant separate guide listings, but this small, glass-enclosed, elegant café inside the courtyard of the Museo de Arte Precolombino is actually one of the city's top restaurants. It has top prices to boot, but it's still a bargain compared with what this quality meal would cost in New York or Los Angeles. Of its novel and exciting twists on traditional Peruvian cuisine, try the chicken estofado (stew) with goat cheese and raisins or the pork adobo with ravioli. The dessert presentation is so clever that you may not want to ruin it by eating it—but you'll be glad you did. The menu is prix-fixe after 6 pm (S/165), and you can choose one each from any of the appetizers, main dishes, and desserts; between 3 and 6 pm, only dessert and coffee are served.

Elegance in Cusco

Map Cafe is located in a beautiful courtyard, serves gourmet food (I had the Alpaca - yum), has excellent service and the price, $35 for pre-fixe dinner, is just right. You can also tour the museum before dinner while sipping the Pisco Sour that is included in the dinner.
