This restaurant is highly recommended. Service is courteous and efficient. The wine list is locally representative and features some wonderful Reservas wines. The food was beautifully prepared

We had organised dinner at Astrid y Gaston prior to our trip to Chile as a belated wedding anniversary night out. I was really excited about the evening especially after some of the other foods we had already tried in Santiago.
The entrees were both delicious and HUGE! We were pleasantly surprised by our choice of the tasting plate and the scallops and couldn't wait for our mains.

Unfortunately, while the mains were very beautifully presented, we found that they weren't the standard we were expecting. My husband had the lamb which was delicious but didn't come with any real sides other than some small fried croquets. We would have much preferred some simple vegetables. As for my fish, it was interesting but slightly dry and the "mixed seafood" it was supposed to come with was actually just a tiny piece of octopus tentacle and a mussel.

The night itself was still very pleasant and the staff are very professional however overall, I didn't feel that it lived up to my expectations. The price was reasonable by western standards but definitely expensive for Chile.

ordered patagonia lamb. Best lamb of my life so far. The wine list is fantastic and the sommelier will help you pair the wine and food. Don't miss the experience.

Our first night at Santiago was spent dining at Astrid and Gaston.

Excellent food, wines and lovely place.

Service first rate and by European standards extremely good value for money.

A must for foodies in Santiago.
