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.

Dear Sandi, Many thanks for your visit and thank you for this positive review. I am a bit surprised you did not like our vegetarian main course (what was it?) because all our vegetarian customers love our vegetarian options... I am however very hapy that you liked our service and your 4 friends were extremely happy with everything. I hope... More

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

We dined here on our first night in Cusco and had high expectations based on the reviews. Some of the reviews mentioned that it was quite pricey which in comparison to other Cusco restaurants it was but compared to USA and UK it was very reasonable for the quality of food we were given. Both me and my partner had... More

the food and service is amazing, but the restaurant was empty, so it had no ambiance. We were three couples and had a great time, but definately you don't go to Le Soleil to party
