We had read about Gaston Acurio and the restaurants that he and his wife Astrid have opened. Having made a reservation before we arrived in Lima, we were looking forward to our dinner at this Peruvian-fusion restaurant. We were not disappointed - all 5 of us greatly enjoyed our dinners. 3 or 4 of us ordered the Saltado Otonal, a seafood dish, while 1 or 2 ordered short ribs. (There are other great choices too.) Everyone was happy. We ordered a Peruvian wine to accompany dinner (we had already had Pisco sours elsewhere). The wines were a little on the high-priced side, with few lower-priced wines available. But our choice was good. They also offer on tap the relatively new craft beers from Barbarian in Lima.
As much as we enjoyed our food here, Astrid y Gaston was only our number two choice for the whole trip - the number one choice was Cebicheria La Mar in Lima (also a Gaston Acurio restaurant).
