WE had an outstanding experience at Mistura. We were a party of ten, and we had superb service, outstanding food, excellent wine, and a fabulous time at a price that was completely reasonable. We had a South American family in our party, who were delighted by the fried egg on their steaks, and I had the octopus that was tender and delicious. Everyone raved about the food, and the service could not have been better. Thank you for making our daughter's college graduation dinner a special experience!

We wanted to celebrate our daughter’s graduation at a special place and boy did Mistura hit all the right notes!

It was our first time at this Peruvian gem and chef Nicola Allegretta’s brilliance is showcased in every dish from the Tiradito Nikkei, Del Mar, El Gaucho to La Limena!

I had to thank Nico, personally, for making our daughter’s graduation memorable and he graciously came to our table to congratulate us!

Abbiamo mangiato come re! Grazie mille!

We came for a graduation dinner and it the perfect place. The Senor Lomo (basically Lomo Saltano), which I had had in Peru several times and never liked, finding it tough in Peru, but excellent here. And you can't find Chicha Morada very many places. The restaurant was packed the night we came, so it was really noisy, but the service and food were excellent. Would definately come again!d

Delicious food and friendly staff. Our only disappointment was that, thinking there would be a bar (as the restaurant is located on a golf course), we went about an hour before our reservation time to have a drink and watch the basketball play-offs. They "don't have cable" and the only thing on the TV screens was travel information on Peru!

Poorly managed restaurant. Sat down and several in our party ordered beers on the menu only to be told they only had three beers available. Couldn't split checks (we had a fairly large group). One in our party was vegan and while there were vegetable side dishes available, she asked if a simple pasta dish on the menu could have the parmesan on top left out. At first the server said no but then he checked (and said OK). The evening ended with several in our party wanting coffee with possible dessert only to be told they didn't have coffee available. What? How can a restaurant not have coffee? I almost asked if I could go to the kitchen and make a pot. We will not be returning to this restaurant.

Peruvian cuisine for foodies. My wife is Peruvian and an excellent cook. Nearly all the Peruvian restaurants we have countered in the United States are not as good as her cooking. This was an exception. Most American Peruvian restaurants do not even attempt to make real beef heart anticuchos because it is so hard to get it right. These were excellent, as good as we’ve ever encountered in Peru. The lamb seco was also excellent. But the menu goes far beyond traditional Peruvian dishes. There are numerous chef’s creations. Wish we could’ve tried them all. We will be back.

Wonderful food but seating is tight so we ended up outside which was cold and windy. Waitstaff was good but seemed overly busy to the point of not having extra time to check on our table.

We tried it for the first time, thought we visit Paso Robles every year. We selected for the Peruvian experience. Overall it was quite good, but fish was smallish and so smothered with sauce that it was lost, and I got no fish quality. The ceviche was quite good. We had the alpaca carpaccio which was unusual so we wanted to give it a try. Again, it was ok, I think, but so smothered in sauce that I really did not get any of the meat flavor.

What a marvelous restaurant in a residential neighborhood on a tiny golf course! We visited Peru last year and loved the food there. This restaurant was everything we hoped it would be and more! Outstanding seafood, very fresh greens and vegetables, and tasty sauces on everything. A little gem

Up-front admission - the owner is our neighbor, and he's a really good guy, so that may color our opinions. That doesn't mean Mistura is not a fantastic restaurant. We had the octopus, salmon, and "Senor Loma," and all were great. Service was relaxed without being slow. The waiter knew the menu well and made excellent recommendations. Although it's located at a golf course, this is definitely not your typical golf course grill. We highly recommend it.

The ceviche was to die for! However, the empanadas were a bit overcooked though the sauces for the empanadas were wonderful. The lamb shank disappointed me more. It was drowning in sauce.

The food was excellent. It was a Saturday so it was very busy. Service was slow and had to ask a few times for my check, but other than that it was good. I’ve been there before and it wasn’t as busy. Could’ve been a bad night for them, but I would definitely go back. Everybody have bad days and I understand that so I don’t hold it against them.

Amazing food unlike any I’ve had at a golf course before: Alpaca carpaccio, burrata and quinoa, a perfectly seared ribeye. The service was excellent. Wine prices were very reasonable for outstanding bottles. You should certainly consider this spot if you’re near Paso Robles.

There were 4 of us dining and when our meals were brought to us one was obviously over-cooked - the Ahi tuna dish. My fiancé brought it to the waiters attention and he took it back to the kitchen. The other 3 dishes were cooked exactly how they were ordered. When mine returned it was cooked perfectly. We were very happy with meal, even though I did have to wait a bit longer and others were almost done with theirs.

Mistura is an outstanding restaurant, easily one of the top three in Paso Robles. Though the restaurant specializes in Peruvian cuisine, the menu is balanced and includes more familiar dishes as well. My family enjoys the seafood, but other meat is also well-prepared, featuring unique preparation not commonly found in our area. The food was complemented by great service provided by friendly and helpful staff. Every dinner here is a memorable event. Easily five stars; check it out!...

We have eaten at Mistura twice and every dish we have had was delicious and beautifully presented. Both the lobster and mushroom raviolis are amazing. We had the braised short ribs and the octopus, and they were excellent. And another must is the cherimoya chocolate custard. Service is great and the setting at the River Oaks golf course is pleasant. We’ll be back.

Decent food, but when we went, on a Saturday night at 7:30, they were out of half the entrees! Indeed, come the end of the meal, they were also out of coffee and espresso. There are lots of good restaurants in Paso Robles. Until this place gets its act together, I recommend trying some place else.

The food was authentic and delicious however they were out of ingredients for probably half the menu at 7:30 on a Saturday night and the service was terrible. Received no special attention even when they knew it was our anniversary.

Recommend the ceviche. I don’t recommend eating here because of poor service.

We were under-impressed by Mistura. We felt that our waiter was a pushy and did not really have time for us. The restaurant was out of multiple items on the menu and the waiter refused to ask the chef if he could prepare one fish the way that one of the other fish they were out of was listed in the menu as being prepared. Our Calamari appetizer was good. However, both the sirloin stir-fry and the fish we ordered were cool as if left waiting to be served for 10 to 15 minutes. The flavors were excellent but the luke-warm food totally detracted from what should have been a good meal. Overall, we were disappointed. They did discount the bill due to the cold food but we much would have preferred to pay full price for warm food.

Found this restaurant by looking for top 10 in Paso Robles. They didn’t have their liquor license yet, but we brought our wine so not an issue. We chose this restaurant because we love Peruvian food. They did not disappoint! From appetizer, main dishes and dessert, we loved it all. We’ll definitely come back!

What a great surprise. I liked the reviews and took a chance. Well we had a fabulous dinner, the ceviche was fresh and delicious. I had the lamb shank and my wife had the Ahi, which both were terrific. We plan to bring friends here when we are in town again next month.
Don't let the location scare you, this restaurant is worth going to. Its off the beaten path, but it exceeded our expectations.

I very seldom write a totally bad revue, until now. It was terrible across the board. I would not recommend it for anything. Out of 5 menu items at 7p.m.. Short staffed, and after 45 minutes between courses the manager came to tell me that they were out of my entrée. After ordering my second choice it came out way over cooked and not edible.

It was my first time dining at Mistura and what a nice surprise! It's up at the golf course and I'm sure there is a beautiful view to enjoy during the day. It's an easy Uber ride to get there. It did not seem very busy for a Friday night and we were seated right away. The staff was friendly and offered helpful suggestions. We started with the De Mi Tierra salad. After a day of wine tasting it was a welcomed healthy and delicious salad with organic quinoa, heirloom cherry tomatoes, edamame, kale, cucumbers, mango, cranberries, topped with queso fresco and tossed in an interesting passion fruit vinaigrette dressing that worked wonderfully. My friend ordered the Muy Machito as her main course. She had dined at Mistura once before and loved the dish so much that she had to order it again. It was a saucy seafood dish with sustainable white seabass, clams, mussels, shrimp and calamari in a spicy aji amarillo sauce served with white rice. She was not disappointed. I ordered the Escabeche - a sustainable white seabass filet sautéed with garlic, extra virgin olive oil, red onions, bay leaves, red vinegar, botija olives and aji amarillo served with purple, red and sweet potatoes. A beautiful presentation of carrots and green beans accompanied the seabass. It was the most deliciously fabulous seabass that was prepared perfectly...I was so happy that it was not overcooked as seabass can get dry. The bill was under $100 for a split salad, the two seafood main courses and the corkage fee (we brought a bottle of wine). Just slightly over $100 including tip. I would highly recommend Mistura to anyone looking for an ethnic flare to typical seafood, meat, chicken or pasta. This is a Peruvian restaurant with a generous selection of interesting and creative offerings and beautiful presentation. I will definitely be dining at Mistura again during my next visit to Paso Robles. I am astonished that this restaurant is not fully booked every night! Well done, Mistura!
