We had lunch there during the week. The place has a business lunch style and it has a nice terrace that looks nice to have some drinks or dinner. Food and drinks were superb, bread selection offered at the beginning amazing and the service perfect. One of the places we will visit again.

The food is DELICIOUS, some of the best in Mexico City. The service is also amazing. Price is very good. Atmosphere; not so good, there was a jazz band playing way too loud. I have nothing against Jazz but if I'm going to such a place, I want to talk with whomever I'm with.

I love the design of the place, there were a couple of bonfires at the backyard that looked great. The food was amazing, we got ceviche, stuffed potato/chili, humita, octopus' anticuchos, picarones and of course the remarkable Piscosour. T The taste of the food was good, unfortunately some dishes are not prepared with Peruvian ingredients such as lenguado/corbina fish, pallares,... More

The good points.. The classic ceviche, bread, and Pisco's (have they shrunk though?). The beef was overcooked, the lamb peculiar tasting, and restaurant empty on a Saturday night... Perhaps very telling. Has it fallen from grace? Once the best restaurant in this city, now very disappointing and very expensive.

Wonderfully decorated restaurant with an impressive terrace, perfect for any private event, very good service. Pisco sour is good, ceviche not bad but a few dishes my group tried were not amazing. I guess because the restaurant is so impressive you expect the food to be amazing too.....I would definitely try it out but don't expect too much.

I visited Astrid y Gaston with a native of Lima, who was familiar with that location and thus very eager to share the experience. The restaurant itself is quite lovely, and the initial service formal and well executed. However, past the first cocktails (excellent) and ceviche (good), everything went downhill. Regarding the food, the overall impression was one of overwhelming,... More

We went to Astrid y Gaston for Valentines Day and had a lovely time. The ceviche was the best, very flavorfull. I had mahi mahi which was also excellent. The atmosphere was lovely as we were on the terrace near the fireplace. But the best part of the evening was the service.....I have never had such perfect service. From the... More

Astrid y Gaston in Mexico City is one of the best restaurants in town. It follows the excellence of the original in Lima, Peru, however with a more up-scale atmosphere. The service is fantastic - probably one of the best I've ever experienced - and the food is delicious. From start to finish it's an incredible experience. Best of all,... More

I was taken here by people who knew what they were doing. From the second I sat down at the bar, I was drawn in by the skills and presentation of the beautiful and creative cocktails by Aaron. All of the bartenders treated their drinks as works of art and they tasted that way too. The flavors were incredible and... More
