Tried the taster menu for a late lunch. Food and service were outstanding. Each dish was packed with flavour leaving wanting more. At the end of the meal you are given drinks on the house and selection of special chocolates.

What an overprised overmarketed and a BIG ZERO VALUE place to have lunch! It has been my second visit to this prestigeous??? restaurant within three months time. I have to admit that the first time was better. Since then the service, ambience, timing and food have deteriorated a dramatically. Again the same feeling that you pay for nothing special in...

Came here for my bday dinner and I am so glad we did!! The building is beautiful. The tasting menu was full of surprises and immaculate details. Astrid made sure to come by our table and ask how we were doing. I've lived in LA and SF and travel distances for good food. Astrid and gaston provided one of the... More

Not for a traveller on a budget but this quality of food and strive would have cost me three times as much in London. The service was faultless and the food exquisite! I recommend the ceviche, I challenge anyone in Peru to better it. I also had the duck sharer risotto, once again amazing. Thank you.

Enjoyed dinner here with 2 other couples. I think we all left with a 4 star impression but not a 5. While the service was good, the timing was a bit off as some things seemed to be rushed out and others kept us waiting. Two in our group tried the Tasting menu paired with the wine. While they seemed... More

The pinnacle of the 14 restaurants from Gaston Acurio, and named with he and his wife, this restaurant is a must visit for foodies in Lima. Built in a historic mansion, the site alone is magnificent, and combined with the art and excellent 5 star service we were blown away. We tried the grilled octopus appetizer, assorted fresh bread with... More

The founder is known as the father of Peruvian cuisine in the whole of South America. The food was excellent. The breads were delicious and so was the accompanying whipped and flavoured butter. The open kitchen and lovely mansion completes the fine dining experience. They have a wonderful wine list too. Definitely a must try!

This is one of the best rated restaurants in Lima, and very well deserved. Everything is delicious, great service and ambience. I will definitely return.

Let's get this straight, this a expensive restaurant, totally worth it if you ask me, but you've got to know it before you go! I'd definitely go back any time! As soon as you're sat down they'll offer you water and drinks, we had some sparkling water and a bottle of rosé wine. Since we're not huge eaters (it was... More

Is a great restaurant to eat, they have a variety of plates but you can try a seasonal food to enjoy the real Peruvian cuisine. The service was amazing, I ordered Mero Murique con piel en choclo en tres texturas, the sumiller Jocelyn and Luis did a great recommendations for the to different wines I tasted with my food and...
