Fodor's Expert Review Astrid y Gastón
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The Santiago branch of the restaurants owned by Lima-based chef Gastón Acurio introduced Peru's wonderful food to Chile, but according to many people, it is not as good as it used to be and a bit overpriced. That said, the causas (stacks of food on rounds of mashed potatoes) are great, as is anything with giant prawns. Winning combinations of flavors in Astrid's deserts, taken from all over South America, include (at times) sugared citrus rinds, carrot cake, and herb-flavored ice cream. The wine list also impresses.
