I have been twice and not been disappointed. The ambience is nice and the food is up there with some of the best I have had in Melbourne. The steak is particularly impressive. Service was a bit rushed on the second occasion.

I have been to Pastuso a few times now - the first time, my friend and I stumbled across it at the end of AC/DC lane when we were on our way to a concert. The food is excellent and the service generally too. I...More

The 3 of us loved this place for a relaxed tasty meal with a few drinks. We started with an amazing Pisco Sour (see photo - you just have to try this foamy sour and sweet concoction with traditional Peruvian “brandy” to understand how good...More

Pisco sour yum...you’ll want more than one. The alpaca was definitely worth a try, marlin ceviche and pork neck delicious and the sweet corn fritter amazing. Great service...knowledgeable and an all round great night. Definitely recommend and definitely will return.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

We had an excellent meal and the service was fine but when we said we wouldn't be tipping the waiter turned mean. If the service is above and beyond then I am inclined to tip but in Australia it is not an expectation and we... More
