50Best Accolades
  • No.13 Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2019
  • Lifetime Achievement Award at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018 (Gastón Acurio)

The godfather of modern Peruvian cuisine, Gastón Acurio presides over a restaurant empire spanning the globe, but it all started 20 years back with pastry chef wife Astrid Gutsche at this eponymous establishment (albeit in a different location to now). A unique three-century-old colonial mansion setting adds a wow factor to the à la carte and tasting menus, which focus on Peruvian flavours. Acurio takes traditional dishes such as guinea pig and gives them the haute-cuisine treatment and Gutsche (Latin America’s Best Pastry Chef 2015) showcases cacao and tropical fruits in her desserts. Astrid y Gastón topped the inaugural Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2013 and Acurio went on to win the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
