Great harmonization between tipical renewed Peruvian food and outstanding service. The spectacular old mansion in a very nice neighborhood make the experience complete.

The food and the restaurant were great. The wine was ridiculously overpriced much more expensive than it would be in the US or Europe Would recommend if the wines were reasonable. Lots of great restaurants in Lima and this isn't a great value. We don't plan to go back.

Astrid & Gaston aims to impress its patrons from the grand entrance, to the welcome lounge, to the personalized service and to the culinary and sommalier recommendations. This upscale restaurant offers the tasting menu or a-la-carte selections. For the tasting menu budget more time and money. The food was interesting, well prepared and nicely presented. Overall a pleasant experience at... More

We go to a lot of restaurants all over the US and the world, its usually pretty hard to shock our taste buds as Astrid & Gaston did this past weekend. The whole dining room experience/atmosphere and the service definitely elevated it to above and beyond many restaurants we've been to...I can see why its one of the best in... More

On our recent trip to Peru, my wife and I decided to try out the tasting menu at 3 of the top restaurants in Lima. Over the years, I had the opportunity to eat multiple times at Astrid y Gaston (in Lima and elsewhere) but it was our first time since the restaurant relocated to this location and also trying...

You walk up the staircase to the front of a large white colonial style house expecting an impressive hallway and enter a rather dull long and narrow reception area. From there I was shown into a large dining room which had four unset polished heavy wooden tables in each corner. The walls were dark, and one wall had a large... More

Food Well balanced and flavorful. Different texture and very well presented. You can sense they tried to represent the essence of Peru, through the classic dishes of the country. Some dishes were deep in flavors, others lights, but always well balanced. The wine pairing was well done. Always on point with the food. The dessert were not too rich, refreshing... More

Same when having the 7 course menu (specially the dishes with fish or seafood) or when ordering "a la carte" the results are excellent. The ceviche was leche de tigre was specially good. A small cuy bite was also great. The wines suggested by the restaurant for each plate in their maridaje were very good. Their cocktails are also very... More

Tried the taster menu for a late lunch. Food and service were outstanding. Each dish was packed with flavour leaving wanting more. At the end of the meal you are given drinks on the house and selection of special chocolates.

What an overprised overmarketed and a BIG ZERO VALUE place to have lunch! It has been my second visit to this prestigeous??? restaurant within three months time. I have to admit that the first time was better. Since then the service, ambience, timing and food have deteriorated a dramatically. Again the same feeling that you pay for nothing special in...
