Lovely Peruvian restaurant with excellent food. Cocktails were very good but a bit pricey.

A great night out can be had here. It's like Whiteheart Lane bar meets a cantina meets a wine bar. The food was delicious and the Panacotta dessert was the best dessert I have had to date!

Amazing food shared amongst 4 girlfriends, perfect amount and not a single dish that I didn't like. Paired with the most delicious pisco cocktails - highly recommend the Brambisco!

Really enjoyed Pastuso, we got there early for our booking, so sat at the bar and had a cocktail, got to take in the environment of the venue which was warm and bubbling with a busy crowd. Seating was great, a suitable sized table for two when having the chef selection. Great service, the food was lovely and the speed of delivery was timed perfectly. Chef selection was good value and certainly left us full to the brim by the end, including dessert.

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).
