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.

This was a place picked by our travel mates, and we were not disappointed. Loved everything we ate. I even had dessert here, which I hadn't had anywhere else we ate! It was worth every bite! Service was excellent and everything was top notch!

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. Just keep that in mind with the reviews and your expectations :) That said, my friend and I came here the night before Inti Raymi and decided to indulge in the... More

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.

Owner Artur clearly had a midlife crisis and decided to escape France for Peru, Weird but Cusco's gain, The food is sensational and the wine even better and cheaper. Do the seven course degustation menu with the Châteauneuf-du-Pape. its a minimalist room in keeping with Arturs vision and it works perfectly.

My wife and I were very much looking forward to visiting Le Soleil based on the many positive reviews. I hesitated to write this review given the extremely defensive tone taken by the management to even the mildest of criticism. Most frequently he makes the point that customers 'change their opinion' as this differs from what they say in the... More

We went to Le Soleil with a group of 19 total. We had reservations for 7pm and we were seated immediately. The service was wonderful and the presentation of the food was delightful, but the flavors of the food were off the mark. The smoked octopus appetizer was a good size, but bland. The lamb shank was flavorless, just swimming... More
