“French in Cusco”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We enjoyed dinner at La Soleil last Sunday evening. The food was delicious. The owner was amazing, switching from French, Spanish to English so easily.
I had grilled octopus, and stuffed quail; and my husband had escargot and Duck a la Orange. Yummy.
Wine list was quite good and even reasonable especially for Bordeaux wines!

“Incredible”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

This has without question been the best meal I have had in Cusco (and in general). Needless to say everything was perfectly prepared, it tasted wonderful, and the service was impeccable. Compared to peruvian prices it was expensive, as expected, but still a third of the price of what it would have been in the States or most countries in Europe. Either way it was worth every penny. Go here!

“Everything was just perfect”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

You can only take so much "tipico" Peruvian food - so we looked at the reviews on trip adviser and decided to try Le Soleil. It's not a big restaurant but you're not crowded in and when I realised that we were going to be late for our reservation because our travel arrangements changed I mailed them. I got an email back just telling us to get there when we could and confirming the time that the kitchen closed. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu - which was delicious - the favourite I think was the salmon - everything was beautifully presented - with a couple of kirs to start, a bottle of wine and coffee, at about £65 per head this was a bargain. Pizza Hut in the UK is hard pushed to deliver a couple of pizzas and a bottle of wine for under £55! The service was attentive without being over the top and the owner clearly is both passionate and professional about his food.
