Really enjoyed eating here - the food and wine were very good, it was not too expensive, and the service was excellent. I showed up at about 7:15 pm (early, I know but I was tired and hungry after a fulsome day in the Sacred Valley) and was for a time the only diner in the restaurant. They serve wine... More

Food, staff, setting - everything was fantastic. In my home country it would cost a fortune to eat in a restaurant like this, but here prices are awesomely cheap for the great value you get. Definitely go here if you love to enjoy french cuisine in style!

We are from North America and we went to "Le soleil" for dinner with a lovely Belgian couple we met in Puno a few days prior. We were not disappointed, to the contrary! This has to be one of the best meals we've had in a long time. Arthur, the owner, reigns over this exceptional restaurant and is very welcoming,... More

I chose this restaurant for my last night in Cusco, went with a very good friend. The setting is beautiful, loved the plates with the golden design, the tea serving was also beautiful.

Since we are from Lima and can enjoy the best of the multiple Peruvian food styles and flavours on a regular basis, we decided to try this French restaurant rated # 1 in Trip Advisor. The place is very nice, with understated elegance, plenty of space between tables to give more privacy to each group. The order is personally taken... More

Excellent food and dining experience, from the perfectly cooked organic veggies, to the purple potato gnocchi, to the lamb shanks, lamb chops, tenderloin, and even crème brulee (a huge challenge at this altitude). Terrific wine selection. But what makes it great is CEO Arturo who wants you to share his love for fine food and drink and succeeds amazingly. We... More

this place was definitely the food highlight of our 3 week trip to peru, albeit more expensive than other restaurants. they gave us free amuse bouches which were super delicious, and the wait staff were attentive and knowledgable. really enjoyed our time here and would definitely suggest it as a splurge before you go off to macchu picchu!

Le Soleil, in my humble opinion, has set new standards for French cuisine. I had the good fortune of having dinner here with my family just last month.

Amazing food, great service. We did not dress appropriately. We were dressed casually, I would dress at least business casual. The proprietor addresses each table individually, and really cares about your experience. Make reservations, it is very small.

Dear Christopher, Many thanks for your nice review about le Soleil and thanks for your visit in March! As I explained to you, we are in Cusco, very touristic place and it is difficult to ask customers to bring cloths for special occasion: we know that and this is the reason why we accepted you with pleasure ;)) Thank you...
