Best food and presentation. Its more like an experience than dining really. The place is beautiful and after going there I m not surprised at all while this restaurants on the world radar. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into making the experience special. Food and drinks are top notch. Only one glitch, it was a 22... More

The food is wonderful here at Gaston Acurio's first restaurant which opened in 1994. It has moved from its original location to a lovely colonial house with a small garden with fresh herbs growing. We went for lunch on a weekday and it wasn't at all crowded. The rooms are very attractively decorated. There were 5 of us and we... More

So I was a big fan but stopped going after a couple of ....different..... experiences. Gave it another chance and it's back to what it used to be. The details are still missing (experience wise) but you can tell Gaston is back. This new tasting menu is perfect for people who want to try typical Peruvian flavors. It's on until... More

This restaurant is one of the most famous restaurants in Lima and has been on the list of "50 best restaurants in the world" for several years. We went there for lunch on a week day. This was my first time and will be my last. It is not bad but it just does not live up to its hype... More

The restaurant is located in an beautiful colonial house, in which they serve great and modern food. The seafood guyosas were amazing, and so was the entrecôte, reccomended by Gastón himself, which happened to stop by to check on the restaurant. The view to the kitchen whilst on the saloon eating was very interesting, and the service was impecable. Prices... More

I am very critical when it comes to restaurants and food, but I cannot criticize Astrid y Gaston in any way. Everything was phenomenal, from the attentive but in-the-shadows wait staff to the amazing -- a poor word choice but I cannot think of a more accurate word -- food. I skipped the tasting menu because I want control over... More

We were lucky to get a table in this top-notch Peruvian restaurant. Service was assiduous, Food was beautifully presented and full of new ingredients and flavours. We were not quite brave enough to try the Guinea Pig. We had a memorable evening with friends. Quite formal.

Yes, this restaurant is ranked in the 50 best restaurant of the world! The reservation was only possible for lunch via internet. This restaurant is located in a colonial mansion and in white color! We were seated in a huge space with transparent glass ceiling with the vases of plant hanging upside down. We ordered the tasting menu, but didn't... More
