Went to Astrid y Gaston because of the good reviews and the fact that it is supposed to be one of the 50 best restaurants worldwide. I personally would not rank it that high since it competes with houses with stars from Guide Michelin. We...More

I liked the place , the service and the people but it was not easy to find normal food in the menu . Most dishes were way too fancy . It is more for the event than for the food itself.

Our hotel concierge couldn't get same night reservations, but suggested we show up at the 7:00PM opening for seating at the bar. Same menu, good people watching and a more informal way to savor excellent cuisine.

I'm a solo traveller on a reasonably tight budget, but I have Gaston's cookbook at home and am planning on splurging one night in Lima. What are the prices like? Is it best to do the tasting menu?

No.. You declare your intention when you arrive. Each menu is a different room and they seat you accordingly.
