Awesome place in a colourful lane way. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious ( Rollo, Alpaca croquettes, octopus, chicharron de pollo, Eye fillet, 1/2 chicken, pork, yucas & all 4 deserts) to share & drinks were great too. We had a very enjoyable day.

This is our second time at Pastuso and we can’t wait to try it again. It treats the Peruvian cuisine with such reverence, it’s as good as it gets on this side of the world. We had the Sunday roast, which was absolutely superb.

The Fish & Octopus Ceviche as well as the Alpaca croquet very tasty. The sauces on the Pork chop and Grill Barramundi were delicious

About Pastuso

Peruvian perfection at Pastuso Walk down the end of AC/DC Lane in Melbourne and you’ll instantly know that you’re heading somewhere special. Cruise past the famous Cherry Bar and out pops Pastuso, a restaurant with a real buzz that’s dedicated to serving mod Peruvian food. Order the beautifully textured flamed Crystal Bay prawns to start and you’ll be contemplating seconds after only one bite. A special mention has to go to the Pollo a la braza (roasted Peruvian chicken) that’s slow-cooked after a lengthy bath in a brine-like sauce (a fusion of cumin, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, coriander and Sichuan pepper). But it’s not just the food that’s kicking serious goals, the fit of fit-out is spot on too with a riot of colourful nca-inspired floor tiles, contemporary neon posters and melty, Dali-esque light fittings. If you’re in the city and looking for a feed, it would be silly not to check out Pastuso. Best dish: Pollo a la braza (roasted Peruvian chicken) that’s slow-cooked after a lengthy bath in a brine-like sauce (a fusion of cumin, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, coriander and Sichuan pepper).
