About us

Who we are

A&G – Astrid & Gaston – is the first Peruvian haut cuisine restaurant in Madrid and the only restaurant in Europe in the Acurio group.   In just a few years it has become a benchmark in Madrid´s top cooking segment.

The cuisine is explained by chef Gaston Acurio as, “Peruvian, modern and free and our values are integrity, creativity and sensitivity.  Our commitment is to the product, the customer and society.  We want to create dishes that incorporate different flavours and the history that goes behind them.   We want our customers to leave our restaurant having had their hearts touched along with their senses”.  Gaston Acurio is a leader in Peruvian gastronomy and the soul of this project.

“In these restaurants, traditional Peruvian food is the starting point but not the end:  it has been refined and enriched with personal touches that   adapt it to meet the requirements of modern life, current circumstances and opportunities but without betraying its origins and also without compromising  the invention and renewal.” Mario Vargas Llosa, Nobel Prize Winner in Literature.
