Amazing food, great service. We did not dress appropriately. We were dressed casually, I would dress at least business casual. The proprietor addresses each table individually, and really cares about your experience. Make reservations, it is very small.

Dear Christopher, Many thanks for your nice review about le Soleil and thanks for your visit in March! As I explained to you, we are in Cusco, very touristic place and it is difficult to ask customers to bring cloths for special occasion: we know that and this is the reason why we accepted you with pleasure ;)) Thank you...

Absolutely amazing food, definitely in our top 10 in the world. Service fantastic. Ambience lacking. Needs an interior designer to help,out. Not so sure about the dog in the outer bar that the Matre'd kept patting in between serving tables! I'd definitely go back & would recommend everyone try this.

An absolutely charming restaurant with an absolutely charming proprietor. Aninetersting collection of dishes very much in the french style. If you are looking for authentic Peruvian cuisine this is not the place, rather it is a breath of Europe for when you want something really different.It is not cheap on Cusco standards but then it is something different. Beware the... More

Had the 5 course meal with a complimentary shot glass of pumpkin and ginger soup. It was exceedingly yummy with attentive and discreet service. They explained each dish as it was served and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I liked even the small touches, like eucalyptus leaves in the toilet, and the replacement of the utensils between each course. Service was... More

This former Colorado girl had a surprising bout of altitude illness last week in Cusco. My husband enjoyed the amazing tasting menu, but it was our solicitous host, Arthur, who went above and beyond to ensure that I was taken care of. He took a look at me and declared "no wine!" and brought me hot water with sugar cubes... More

We enjoyed dinner at La Soleil last Sunday evening. The food was delicious. The owner was amazing, switching from French, Spanish to English so easily. I had grilled octopus, and stuffed quail; and my husband had escargot and Duck a la Orange. Yummy. Wine list was quite good and even reasonable especially for Bordeaux wines!

This has without question been the best meal I have had in Cusco (and in general). Needless to say everything was perfectly prepared, it tasted wonderful, and the service was impeccable. Compared to peruvian prices it was expensive, as expected, but still a third of the price of what it would have been in the States or most countries in... More

You can only take so much "tipico" Peruvian food - so we looked at the reviews on trip adviser and decided to try Le Soleil.
