Awesome food- amazing flavours. The only negative is that it is a little loud in the lower section and our small party of three found it difficult to converse. The booth area is more comfortable in this respect

Busy restaurant but great service and not too loud for conversation. Wonderful food with plenty of choices, including the wine list. Would definitely return.

Very cool and interesting venue, good for an intimate dinner or a bigger group as the restaurant is well laid out. Interesting and delicious cuisine you won't find anywhere else. Awesome location at the end of ACDC Lane, definitely worth a visit at least once!

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).
