Both the food and service were remarkable, even, considering my friend and I were not dressed well. Our waiter was very informative and offered good recommendations. The appetizers and meals were quite good. We had ordered quinoa (forgot what it was accompanied with) and rabbit. While the plates were not the typical Peruvian dishes you normally find, our fusion inspired... More

I hope have enough space to describe our meal at Astrid and Gaston. Or simply say that it was for sure the best meal I ever had in any of my trips. Be sure to make your reservation in advance for the degustation menu. ( Pricey, but is worth the price $$$$$) you will be pampered by the staff starting... More

Definitely one of the best meals of my life. Astrid Y Gaston is every bit as good as Michelin 3-star restaurants in Europe. The new location in San Isidro is a beautiful old mansion and the tasting menu begins outdoors with cocktails before a visit to the kitchen and the rest of the meal in the restaurant itself. Excellent service,... More

The food wasn't as amazing as we had expected it to be. Especially as I woke up at about 6am the next morning with stomach pains and was sick for the rest of the day. It was also really cold in the restaurant, my partner had a particularly strong gust on him the whole night which they couldn't remedy and... More

I wanted to visit this place since it first appeared on the 50 best restaurants in the world. And I came to Lima for business and couldn't miss the opportunity. The place is lovely, a nice White house in San Isidro. Decoration is simple but modern. And the menu wow excellent. It took me a while to know what to... More

I attended a business dinner at the new location of astrid y gaston in Lima, Peru and it was fantastic. The new location is in a renovated colonial mansion -- Casa Moreyra. As you enter the courtyard approach to the restaurant there is a garden to the left where they grow some of the ingredients to the meals. The setting... More

The dinner experience at the new Casa Moreyra location was perfect and by far the best dinner we've ever had. We chose to include the wine pairing which only added to the experience. We enjoyed each and every course and thought the added touch of visiting the kitchen to meet the chef was unique. Be sure the go hungry and... More

Very disappointed. Don't understand how it can be one of the best restaurants in the world. Not to my taste at all.

I actually tried to book Central and Maido as well with no luck and very little feedback from them. La Barra Casa Moreyra confirmed my reservation instantly, which was amazing! The grounds and interior of Casa Moreyra are beautiful without being over the top or pretentious. Very nicely done with attention to detail, but not at all stuffy. Well-laid out... More

Astrid y Gaston is a truly great dining experience. Peruvian dishes take on a modern twist, cuy Peking duck style was a hit, sorry all children reading, rest assured, your pet guinea pigs are safe... The decor in La Barra is refined and understated. The service was somewhat like the Lima traffic - a little chaotic but eventually everything and... More
