Best ceviche I've ever tried (not that I'm a connoisseur. Desserts were superb authentic Peruvian, like the Suspiro Limeño- you definitely get a sugar overdose after that once! Service was very mediocre, it seemed like a social club of waiters and maitre d' more than that they were really doing their job. We went on Tuesday night and there were... More

The place is really nice from an interior decoration point of view. I found it too serious, though.... not my style. I felt like the place was more for formal dinning, or business. I had heard great things about the place and that's why I decided to go. Like many other upscale restaurants, place and service were great but the... More

While the ambience of the restaurant is not amazing, the food and drinks is amazing. Recommend the house ceviche and surf and turf choclo. Service is excellent and priced reasonably considering reputation.

I have eaten several times at this restaurant and other from the same chef. I have always been very satisfied. Good food, good service, good price. Do not miss it. You will thoroughly enjoy it.

I have had Peruvian food at other restaurants in London and San Francisco. This one was not comparable at all to the other ones which were far superior. We ordered the ceviche de cinco ingredientes and it had way too much lemon that tasting the other ingredients was impossible. We then had the curry shrimps which was way too salty... More

We went to Astrid y Gastón on a friends recommendation. The food was very tasty and well presented. Unfortunately the restaurant was understaffed. The service was very slow. The restaurant also needs sprucing up it looks old and dingy. It does not invite you to stay,

Thank Patricia S
