Fantastic food, friendly & informative staff. Tables too close/crowded - issue with staff waiting other tables/people which prevented access to our seats/table on more than one occasion, seating definitely too close together. Made an otherwise fantastic evening a little less perfect.

Sadly disappointing however you learn from your experiences. To the young lady who handled the bill settlement, you are clearly in the wrong industry.

Staff was quite argumentative, not in a positive way. She also forget the order and took the wrong order.

Had the feed me option which was very generous in its portions! Tasty food, good atmosphere. Ceviche was a bit too tart for our liking but overall had a good experience and made us reminds of travels to Peru

Every dish we ordered was faultless. First time trying Peruvian food and have discovered s new favourite. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. Drink selection was great, and pisco sour is a must. The recommendation is to pick one dish from each section and would definitely second that, we did and our only regret is not being able to eat more.

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).
