Gaston is very famous in Peru, but the traditional local food is not very well mixed with the gourmet scenario, the servings are a bit small for a person and the desserts are really really small. Overall I was happy with the service I received.

I am not a fan of chain restaurants, but this place was great. The lomo en adobo (marinated pork in what amounts to a soup) was rich in flavor. Several different kinds of bread were enjoyable. I would gladly order the chirimoya custard (type of apple) served with white chocolate mousse again. I should not have ordered dessert, but the... More

We ate here as a large group - 21 of us. The piscos were great, especially the maracuyo (passion fruit). I had the osso bucco which was good (but I've actually had better in my home town of White Bear Lake in MN). My friend had the ravioli which was to die for - I would order this next time... More

I had always wanted to try a Gaston restaurant. Splurged a little for this one. It was a good experience but I wouldn't order the same thing again. Chicharrones. Not my type but that was my fault for ordering. Also not a great fan of the queso helado, but also don't know if it was just my preference or if... More

The food was just heavy and bland. We had the pork ribs and the ravioli. The pork had been deep fried and was lacking in flavour. The ravioli was overlooked, bland and the sauce looked like split cheese. Not what we expected for the best restaurant in Arequipa.

This is a great restaurant, they need some confidence and jazzing up. But the food is to die for, and its a comfy oasis in the old centre of Arequipa. My wife tells me the waiters are a dream as well. So to business, its old quarter stone, with comfortable chairs and tables, cool and well ventilated. We had a... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a quaint place to share a nice lunch as several reviews said to get lunch here. Our server was patient with my poor Spanish and my fluent girlfriend helped to clarify. That did not seem to matter as he got my drink order wrong. I have had no problems by myself in ordering...

This place was great. We had dinner here the first night in Arequipa and out of the four nights we were here, this was the best. Think it deserves a better score than "18th" Far better than "Tio Dario" which has a score in the top five.

As I said for me this is the best restaurant in aqp. They actually have service to some extent, unlike most places that can be similarly pricey. The food has been amazing here 3 times now, also the waitresses notice when your drink is running low and ask if you'd like another. ( this is very rare in aqp)

This is part of the chain by one of the Peru's celebrety chef's. Although I am not big on chains, this restaurant was exceptionally good. Excellent knowlegeable service and really, really excellent food. Highly recommended.
