We love food and without a doubt our trip to Chile was highlighted with a visit to Astrid & Gaston. Our hotel made a early reservation (7:30 P.M) for dinner and we walked 2 blocked on a nice summer night to the restaurant.
The hostess spoke English which was nice since our Spanish is very limited. The place was not very crowded since it was a Wednesday and it was still early. The atmosphere was upscale but not overly stuffy. The service was just right for us. We are the type of people that likes our privacy and do not need overly attentive service. Our server knew exactly how to approach us and let us order and then left us alone unless I made eye contact and waved.
We choose to have the tasting menu since it was going to be a little bit of everything. The tasting menu had 6 courses and every one of them can stand up by itself. The best was definitely the pasta dish with crab. We both would not have minded if there was a whole plate of it. Also loved that they incorporated hominy in the dishes. The ultimate sign of a great meal is that at the end we were so full but had to finish every single bite of the dessert.
Overall I would definitely recommend Astrid & Gaston. Its one of the best places I have been to.
