Machu Picchu is a wonderful restaurant experience. The menu is varied and all of the ingredients are clearly fresh. Chefs Gloria and Victor make a point to come out of the kitchen to visit their customers and will guide any patrons who are new to Peruvian cuisine. Dishes range from seafood to chicken to steak. Two of our favorites are the seafood Jalea and the Aji de Pollo (chicken). The seasoning is divine - incredibly flavorful - and not necessarily spicy. Chef Gloria also makes delicious authentic Peruvian desserts. They are made with fruits and spices imported from Peru and taste like nothing you have encountered before. If you enjoy good food, Machu Picchu is a MUST. We cannot praise this restaurant enough!
What happened to the Blue Corn? It used to be pretty good. Yeah, there were issues with the servers, but the food was fresh and interesting. But when I dined there today, it was horrible. Canned sauces, canned refried beans and American cheese in the quesadillas. They are awfully spendy for such an inferior presentation. And to top it off our server was inept.
This is a shame... They had a good idea in a great location and they are committing suicide. You'd be better off at Taco Bell. At least if the food is as bad as the offerings at the BCC, it would be cheap.
Mar y Sol looks nicely after last year renovations. And the food is excellent, the way it was before. I love the seafood stew.
