Brilliant!!

We visited at lunchtime on a Monday. The staff at our hotel recommended it and booked us a table. It's a fantastic place and the food was sensational. We chose 5 taster dishes which in the end was probably a bit ambitious. 3-4 would have done. Our Waiter was great and very helpful. We wanted to... read more

If you are willing to spend a lot of money to have a perfect meal, this is the right place. We had the long menu (32 plates) and all of them were incredibly good. We spent the whole afternoon there, and, more than a meal, it was an amazing experience.

I ate in the more casual part, La Barra. The ambiance was creative with upside down plants hanging from the ceiling. The appetizers we had were 8-9/10. The mains were 7-8/10. The deserts were 7/10. Maybe I am holding them to a higher scale because I expected so much, but I feel there is room for improvement.

Wow, that was great! About 30 courses, and everyone was one of the best I ever had. Very beautiful place, best service. Go there if you like good food!

We made the reservation 1 month in advance for trying the tasting menu per their new address in Casa Moreyra before our trip to Peru. At that time, the restaurant was serving "Viru" -a 4 hours (29 steps) tasting menu. Through the course of tasting experience, I felt as if I was taken back to re-visit the country once again....

After reading awesome reviews about this restaurant we decided to give it a try and made a reservation through our hotel concierge. We got to the place and they gave us a table at La Barra. We were expecting to be given a tour to the kitchen, a degustation menu, some instructions... But all we got was a terrible service.... More

Who knew that we were going to be so lucky to get a reservation of a table for 6 people with one day's notice. I was told about Gaston by both of the culinary tours that I took on Saturday night and Sunday morning. So- I had to go there. It was over the top. I am a total "foodie".... More
