Incredible French in Cusco

Went here since it was voted best restaurant of Cusco and Peru by trip advisor, and were not dissapointed. Food was incredibly tasty, and not far off from the best French Restaurants in Europe. The Duck was very tasty, and overall everything was very good. Soup+Duck+ 2 bottles of Red 65$

We enjoyed a lovely meal, although our main of lamb shank was not as soft as we would have expected given that it is described as cooked for 16 hours; the flavours were excellent nonetheless. The staff are very friendly, extremely attentive and really go out of their way to please. The ambience is of understated elegance, with background music... More

I rarely find myself at a loss for words but this restaurant managed to leave me (nearly) speechless.

I thought the food was very good and service was terrific. If you are in a mood for French food in Cusco you should most definitely go here. However I felt that ambience was a bit bland at the restaurant. If you like a quiet restaurant then this is perfect for you..

Our Le Soleil experience was superb. We had the seven and the five course meal, and the food was among the best I ever had. The price was a bargain compared to what you get - this is a world class restaurant. We had minor difficulties paying, but the experience was still still top notch.
