Somewhat over rated, cebiche nice, but what could go wrong there...main dishes with fancy description but nothing impressive and waiters in bad mood....not worth the price , expected a lot more.

I went to the restaurant during the BA Food Week April 15-22, 2013. There was a special promotion. We didn´t know that it was more of a tasting that actual food. So the portions were very small, it seems that they were trying to save money!!!. Food was very well prepared. Service was very good. We paid 50us$ per person at the official rate or 30us$ at the unofficial rate. At 50 dollars is expensive at 30 is more ok.

Great value for money at Astrid y Gaston duing BA Food Week April 15-22. For 99 pesos (US420 or less depending on the exchange rate used) we had a three course lunch of ceviche, linguado and dessert. The food was delicately prepared, fresh and nicely presented. Great pisco sour too, but that was extra.

I found this experience to be somewhat disappointing. While the food was well presented and offered new combinations of flavors, I found that the best part of the meal was the appetizers. We ordered causas....which were heavy on the potatoes and skimpy on the flavourful toppings...stuffed potatoes, which were very good and civichi which was out of this world. (According to my companions who ordered it). The main course was intriguing as it offered lamb served three ways...but it was served luke-warm after a very long wait. The pork dish was reportedly very good...again according to my dinner companions. The dessert disappointed...a lemon pie interpretation...with merangue that was simply horrible with a "meaty" flavour.

The restaurant setting is very nice...in an older home...with a very nice modern and different decor.

Overall I found the food inconsistent, the service slow, and the prices high. That said....the food did offer flavours that are not often found in Argentinean cuisine...so it was a nice change from that perspective...

If you are in BA and want fish one evening, go to this place in Palermo. The food is excellent and the restaurant very nice with good service.
