Description: This was the first restaurant of the renowned and very popular Peruvian chef Gaston Acurio and his wife Astrid. It is kind of hard to get an agreement on the classification for this restaurant, being Frech style in its beginnings, some say it is now criollo-French, while others say it is Peruvian-Mediterranean or simply international, but the truth is that they all agree it is the best restaurant in Peru and Latin America and it is for sure an amazing experience and a must if you are in Lima. It is located on a small side street very close to the main plaza of Miraflores. While you wait for your food the bar can offer you an amazing assortment of piscos and pisco cocktails for an exciting aperitif.The food is outstanding but don´t forget to save room for the desserts, Astrid is very famous because of them. The wine list is great and you can even have dinner in the wine cellar. You can also find Astrid & Gaston in Bogota, Caracas, Quito and Santiago de Chile.
Price Range: Very expensive
