Overall very good value for money. Delicious food. Great venue for small group get together. Just that our serving size is not consistent. For example, one bowl of cassava chips is much bigger than the other.

The food is fabulous, We had the Chef Selection - Feed Me menu, which is a great way of trying a broad range of food. My suggestion would be to add some green vegetables as there is an abundance of meat and root vegetables but nothing green. Avoid being seated on the window bench, its hard and cold and after more than a few minutes extremely uncomfortable. In colder months it becomes very cold and spoils an otherwise enjoyable experience. Why a restaurant would seat a pre-booking there is beyond me, it should be kept for last minute walk-ins. Overall good food, good service. I will go there again!

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).
