This was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. It wasn't cheap, but the quality was exceptionally high. Worth it as a treat.

Thank Josh M

My Fiancé and I went to the Soleil for Christmas day as we are both french living in Peru we wanted a little peace of home on that particular day. I was really really tasteful and amazing. The owner Arthur is such a wonderful host it took really good care of us and it makes a big difference in Cusco. We had foie gras and snail to start with. The foie gras is imported from France so good and the snail were cooked perfectly !!! After my fiancé had the Orange's duck it was so delicious very soft and me the rack of lamb that i would greatly recommended. On top of that we had a wonderful bottle of Bordeaux my god french wine is definitely good ... and to finish with an orgasmic chocolate cake... sorry no other word to describe it!!!!
The cherry on top of the cake is that Arthur has a Nepresso coffee machine !!!!!!!
If you want to have a special meal in Cusco and getaway from Peruvian food this is the place. Beside the decoration is very nice... it felt for 2 hours we were back in Paris... a travel within a travel!!!
Arthur thanks for the real champagne it was a really good Christmas because of you and your restaurant !
PS: it is pet friendly which does not exist in Peru!!!!!!!

Had lunch with three friends and it couldn't have been better. The owner greeted us and explained every dish as it came to the table. The food was fantastic, the service spot on. The decor is tasteful and comfortable, the music was interesting but didn't interfere with conversation and the desserts are divine, truly divine.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 25th anniversary meal here at Le Soleil based on trip advisor reviews. A unique French experience in Latin America. The owner/host was unbelievable. He was attentive and made the perfect recommendations, pairing wine with the foods we wanted. The food was French but the local fresh ingredients added special twists to the food. Everything was incredibly fresh and absolutely delicious. Foie Gras was outstanding as were the snails. Bread was fresh and very special, one was made with coffee and chocolate. I had the duck, unbelievable and my husband had the lamb shank which was also outstanding. There was absolutely no room for dessert. Overall experience was awesome. You really should go if you get to Cusco!

We were recommended by the Reception staff at our hotel,Maytaq Wasin. From the moment we entered Le Soleil we were made to feel really special. Our host brought the menu, and we had a lovely complimentary starter, which tasted divine. The food was beautifully cooked and presented, and we were taken through the ingredients and presentation of each course by our very pleasant waitress. We requested Anise tea to drink,but were advised that it was not available. However, a short time later our waitress arrived with a pot of this tea - it had been sent out for specially, which made us feel quite special. We spent a very relaxing evening eating lovely food, which was priced very reasonably for the service we received.
Well worth a visit.
