We were pretty happy to secure a table for two. We were quite disappointed when we left and do think that the current high ranking does not do justice to the qualities of this restaurant. We decided to take the 7 course degustation menu. We found the pace breathtaking: within less than two hours we ate seven dishes had coffee/tea... More

Dear Sir, I have read very carefully your comments and I thank you for your time. We are sad and sorry that we couldn't fulfill your expectations. However classifying us as poor, in my eyes, is a bit exaggerated, especially knowing the fact that all plates returned to the kitchen clean… I am pleased that you liked our trout mousse... More

Immediately you feel transported out of the Peruvian atmosphere when you are greeted in French by the Parisian owner, hear Edith Piaf and see the back wall which is covered with a picture of one of the famous Parisian bridges. The menu has multi course options or a la carte. The prices are definitely higher than most casual dining venues,... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday at El Soleil. The food and service was Michelin quality. I had contacted the restaurant before to let them know it was a birthday celebration and they could not have been more helpful or responsive.

We had a perfectly reasonable dinner but found the restaurant lacking in atmosphere compared to our previous nights in Cusco. Shame the wine list had bottles out of stock so for reds you only have a choice of something at 120 sol or 200 up. We had main courses from the a la carte menu and all were happy with... More

We came here based on a trip advisor recommendation and enjoyed our evening here. A few blocks off the main drive, the setting is intimate and bright. There was probably seating for 30 total. We shared the steak tartare and the langoustines appetizers. Presentation was excellent and both were lovely, with the steak was the preferred app. The lamb shank... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the food was beautifully presented, cooked and served. It was a real meal experience and the staff were absolutely charming and quietly efficient. It was little chilly in the restaurant when we visited so I'd recommend a warm layer of clothing.

Let's preface this with, you're in Peru. This is good French food and probably one of the best in Cusco - but it's not a Michelin rated Parisian restaurant.

This 7 course meal has a great value: 175 soles. You can't get anything near this quality for that price in the US. We loved our food and experience here.
