We dined here for dinner. While the standard of the service and food was excellent, I was very disappointed with my vegetarian main, the ratatouille. The portion was tiny, and was more like a side serving, which was a shame.

The decor and service at Le Soleil was top notch. Our server was both knowledgable and eloquent. I thoroughly enjoyed my wine and starter, but not so much the vegetarian main course. However, the meat eaters in our group were extremely happy with everything.

Hands down one of the best dining experiences we've had anywhere. Small and intimate setting, the Parisian owner served us himself. Warm, welcoming and personable. Dinner was absolutely delicious. Open kitchen which we observed for a good 10 minutes, local Peruvian chefs trained in French cooking in Paris, fresh local ingredients, large portions, very comfortable. Per the owner, it's the...

We'd been adventuring in Peru for a bit over a week, and were ready for something other than a "typical" Peruvian meal. Well, we got it: an excellent French menu, with lovely food, accompanied by linen, crystal, silver, and friendly and attentive service. We had a tasting menu, and substitutions were graciously allowed, with appropriate recommendations. The wine was great,... More
