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.

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

The food was good, but I was hoping for something really nice. The tasting menu started well with good snails, very good Foie gras paired with a excelent sauternes and the main course was disappointing didn't like at all. Service was well made by the owner.
