“Class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were heading to Peru at the end of our trip but couldnt wait to see what all the fuss was about. A great fusion of International and Peruvian cuisine. We had good service and we loved the interior layout. A great introduction to Peruvian cuisine.

“I was afraid that it was as overated as the one in Lima. Gladly I was wrong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Went last year to Peru and tried Astrid and Gaston in Lima as it is rated one of the best restaurants in the world. I thought it was presuncious and overated so I was not planning to go there in Santiago. A friend of mine told me that it was a completely diferente experience and he was right. Much better place, food and service. This restaurant is definately one of the best ones in Santiago and it was a much more enjoyable atmosphere than in Lima. Do not miss!!

“Only name”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I am sorry for the answers? Why is it food good?
My experience was terrible.
Last time I was in the private room (that means a especial dinner). The entrance are normal ones, no surprise. The food is not good. It is not a gastro experience and the price is EXORBITANT.
They don't know how to do a Risoto (was raw) and the maitre tried convince me that was a kind of Italian rice and was made like that. And was very deselegant because tried say that I do not know arborio rice. I am sorry I LOVE Risoto and I lived in Italy many years. THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO COCK THAT.

“Food doesn't get much better than this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

My title says it all. If your budget allows, you must dine at this world-class restaurant. Unlike some other reviewers, we had no problems with service. Will be back the next time we are in Santiago.
