Astrid & Gaston review Rate it

Peruvian-Asian fusion food is no longer a new sensation in BA, and certainly not to owner Gastón Acurio, who has been experimenting with these flavours for years in his international empire of restaurants. The question on everyone's lips when Astrid & Gastón opened in BA was, will locals eat this food? Smartly, the heat was toned down in the first weeks, inching it up gradually to find a balance between the restaurant's style and the tolerance level of porteño palates. The food is beautifully presented and flavoured, and can be accompanied by a range of pisco cocktails. The desserts are impeccable, as is the service. If the dining room decor is not to your liking (near-glowing vermillion and off-green walls give the odd sensation of being seated inside a cocktail olive), diners can always retreat outside to the garden.
