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 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,

The staff is very friendly, as soon as we were sat they explained the chef's recommendations and served us a variety of breads with 3 types of salsa (less, medium, hot), the salsas and as well the breads were fresh and delicious. There's a nice variety of food inspired by the Latin american culture, and a nice list of wine,... More

I was impressed by the Elegant style of the restaurant. The ceviche was very fresh and great Combinations. The red snapper fish was delicious. The pisco sour had a too much foam and not enough drink but the second I told them and they corrected it. The mango martini was great. The sommelier was sweet and the wine good. Attentive... More
