Le Soleil in Cusco: French cuisine makes its way to the Andes

How could we not feature a meal at TripAdvisor’s currently #1 ranked restaurant in Cusco on our blog?  Let me take you through the meal that, although not Peruvian, left me dreaming of French baguette and foie gras for days.

Le Soleil is the first restaurant offering French cuisine in Cusco, and although most of the ingredients need to be imported, the chef delivers a line-up of plates as deliciously sophisticated as one you would find in a stylish bistro in Paris.

I can graciously admit that although I am obsessed with the flavorful tiradito and juicy pollo a la brasa that comprises my typical dining schedule, the need to branch out and explore the offerings of other cultures is a necessity for me.  With recommendations from Marisol, who recently posted a blog article about her time spent with the world-class owner Artur Marcinkiewicz at his restaurant and hotel La Lune One Suite, my initial curiosity became a full-fledged desire to see what all of the ‘great food, ambient atmosphere, and spectacular service’ fuss was all about.

I could easily describe in great detail the sumptuous wine and each of the five elegantly prepared dishes that were placed before me, but I believe that the photographs documenting my extravagant dining selection is enough to purvey just how incredible my meal was.

 

The refined flavors of the food and wine, attentive and personalized service (from Artur himself, as well!), and the casual yet smart vibe of Le Soleil certainly lives up to the hype. I now understand why this fabulous French restaurant hidden down the cobblestone streets of Cusco has made such an impression on discerning locals and visitors alike.

To include a reservation at Le Soleil or an overnight at the equally incredible La Lune One Suite during your trip to Peru, visit our website, and learn more about how we at Aracari can create a unique and personalized itineraries just for you.
