Wow!

A nice surprise in Cusco! We had lunch and had the place to ourselves. This was the best meal we've eaten in a while. The service was perfect, the presentation was impressive, and the food was outstanding! Thank you for such a great lunch - we will be back!

I must admit I'm not a fan of French Food. Or so I thought. I'm used of NYC Italian style portions and sauces. That being said this food was delicious. The wine list was extensive and turned out to be quite reasonably priced. The 7 course menu was like edible art. The owner was fantastic and super friendly. I would... More

We were sceptical of fine French cuisine given that Cusco is in the middle of nowhere... boy were we wrong. La Soleil was amazing. It is one of the top 3 French dining experiences we have had behind Guy Savoy and Vue de Monde, which says a lot for a little restaurant in Cusco. The food was amazing, the service... More

Well worth the extra cost - and still rather affordable! Owner is very hospitable and let us in early even though we were there 30 min prior to opening. I live in NYC and this is actually one of the better French restaurants I've been to!

Great service, we had the Sautéed langoustines (3.5/5), Avocado curls (2/5) and Andean trout rolls (4/5) for starters. For the main course Beef tenderloin demi-glace (3.5/5) and Canard à l’orange (duck) (5/5 superb duck leg) for dessert the opera (5/5 awesome chocolate). I would come back just for the duck and dessert.

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.
