We found ourselves looking for food at 10pm on a Friday in Cusco and Le Soleil was one of the only places open. We love finding great places to eat that we didn't plan for. The host (a French gentleman) was extremely accommodating of 2 hungry tourists on a cold night. We ordered the Gnocci. The chef sent some Pumpkin... More

I've been lucky enough to dine at Le Soleil 5 times in the past year and a half - twice with colleagues, twice with family, and once for a romantic birthday dinner. The food has been outstanding every single time, and the service even better. Since I grew up in France, it's a real treat to be able to get... More

We went to Le Soleil one night in Peru, and we were truly blown away. When traveling to countries that focus less on culinary eloquence, we generally don't expect the same level of refinement in meals, but this place is really amazing. Outclassing some of the best meals in France OR the US that we've had, this place executes their... More

A pumpkin and ginger treat from the chef to get things started, a superb Bordeaux from Graves, then shrimp with local potato gnocchi over a pea and bique sauce with truffle oil - and that was just the beginning. The atmosphere and service are the perfection of modern, haute French cuisine. Coming from New York I found Le Soleil to... More
