Description
Machu Picchu Bar and Restaurant will take you on a journey from Australia's Sunshine Coast to the vibrant heart of South America. ​ Follow the salsa rhythms to the fiesta on Ocean Street in Maroochydore and step inside to experience the sights, sounds and flavours of the most colourful continent on earth. South Americans don't just eat to sustain themselves, they eat to celebrate, to honour and to connect with family and friends. Our menu invites you to share the finest cuisine from all over the continent - from elegant Peruvian ceviche to hearty Brasilian asado. We're confident our extensive range of Latin beers, high-altitude rums and signature cocktails are the best you'll find ouside of South America.
