“This ambitious project in the Sacred Valley, 3,500 metres above sea level, has to be Latin America’s most talked-about dining experience.” - Conde Nast


“It’s this forward-thinking approach to food — and to the indigenous resources that selections originate — that has helped catapult Martínez to the top of the playing field..” - Forbes

Mil Experience

Appreciation through Understanding. Understanding through Experiencing. The MIL Experience is more than just a meal, but a cultural experience.

The MIL Experience is a food tour and cultural tour in one. As you dine on an 8-course meal at one of Latin America’s best restaurants, you’ll witness Incan history in the Moray ruins and how chef Martinez and his international Mater Iniciativa team continue this tradition of food experimentation. Traverse the scenic landscapes of the Sacred Valley, using only your fork.

MIL Food Philosophy:


Collaboration

Farmers, biologists, anthropologists, and gastronomists have all worked in collaboration to create you an unrivalled gastronomic experience.


Innovation

MIL is a fusion between ancient food techniques and modern food preferences for an entirely innovative culinary experience designed by Virgilio Martinez.
