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.
Wondering first time there. Food was very good, but a little slow with the service. Not a problem as we were not in a hurry anyway. I definitely will return with family and friends.
Waiter needs customer service training!
We have been there several times and loved it. However, the portions are significantly smaller than previously. Perhaps half the seafood on the plate as before.
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!
We’ve eaten at Mistura 3-4 times and it is hands down the best restaurant in Paso Robles.
Excellent food with a wide choice of healthy and delicious options. Generous portions, the best of ingredients and some wonderful sauces and beautiful presentation. Good wine by the bottle list with small markups. Wine by the glass more limited. Highly recommended.
We ordered the scallop ceviche, the salmon and the quinoa salad, all were delicious
We recommend starting with the sampler. The sampler really demonstrates this restaurants style, essence and approach. Each item was prepared, seasoned and served perfectly. My favorite was the ceviche. My husbands' was the ahi.
We've eaten a lot of octopus over the years, my Italian in-laws have two booths at the Fulton Fish Market, but I have never ever had such tender, sweet octopus as was prepared by Mistura.
We're looking forward to coming back again. It was an enchanting evening, great ambiance and energy. Perfect, really.
We were seated immediately upon arrival, at the reserved time. From the host, to waiter, to servers, the staff was friendly. They apologized for the very high noise level as being a result of St. Patrick's Day, though I suspect it's probably generally loud given the acoustic setup.
The chicken empanadas were served with 3 sauces that were not explained. They arrived piping hot. The crust was not particularly flaky. The chicken was reasonably seasoned, but not particularly memorable.
The Bachiche chicken pasta was served in a red tomato sauce, which predominated the flavor. The chicken and spices were overpowered by the sauce, which while good, could have been more balanced.
The Ravioli de Langosta, however, was excellent. The cream sauce balanced the flavor of the pasta and the lobster.
Serving sizes were robust.
Prices were Paso winery comparable, but for the food quality, were pricey - only the Langosta merited the price.
Overall, pleasant and professional, worth going for the Langosta, but perhaps try some of the other dishes than the empanadas and Bachiche.
The service was friendly and attentive. We went for my sons bday and the server said he had a special dessert for him but we did not get it. The restaurant was not busy at all and by the time we were ready for dessert it was clear the kitchen wanted to close. I enjoyed the salmon and my daughter loved the fish stew stew. The octopus entree was very good.
Mistura has become one of our favorite restaurants in Paso and there are numerous great ones. Every dish is distinct and you are always surprised by the creative. Ahi tuna, rib eye steak, ceasars salad ala Mistura, and some interesting wines from South America and of course local
This could be a 5 star dinner if the noise was lower. At multiple points I couldn't hear the people sitting at our table for four. The food is worth trying this restaurant and we will try again. The presentation is lovely and the variety of tastes made my mouth vey happy. It would be nice if they gave a corkage discount for Paso wines like others in the area.
Lovely and very flavorful food. Had never had upscale Peruvian. Perfectly balanced spice palette. Great menu selection. We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely dinner and our waiter, Alejandro was very attentive and very pleasant to talk to during our dinner. We love the food and its presentation
Our server seemed a little spread thin, but she was apologetic and extremely friendly. Her recommendation of beef hearts was spot on. The alpaca carpaccio and grilled octopus were both phenomenal too. It reminded me of being in Peru the summer of 2015. Great execution. Very well done.
The one disappointment is I couldn't get a pisco sour because they only have a beer and wine license.
We had a bad experience here. We were there about 1.5 hours. Waited 50 minutes for our entree's and my husband's arrived. we were told mine would be out shortly. His short ribs had obviously been prepared quite some time before being brought to the table as they were cold. We declined the meals and left. Paid for our over priced appetizer and drinks. $55.00 out the door and no dinner.
This was our 4th visit; food is always amazing, so good it has kept us coming back. However, will probably be our last time as the service is hit-or-miss. 2 times good service, 2 times really bad service. If all you want is good food then place is for you, just do not expect reliable service.
Traveling in the area from out of state. Simply looked on line for a place to eat and saw great reviews. Made our reservation and were able to be seated quickly. Staff was wonderful; very friendly and professional. Not only gave us great menu suggestions but also great suggestions of what to explore in the area. Both of our entrees were excellent.
Very enjoyable. Certainly will return next time in area. Refreshing addition to Paso Robles, CA which has limited dining options.
Great food in a very casual setting. Inventive and delicious take on traditional Peruvian dishes.
I love Mistura we have been going there since you have opened the staff is very friendly and the food is always amazing, I highly recommend this place to everyone, I work at a winery and also have an airbnb so I send lots of people your way.
Food and service are outstanding!! Consistently great in both departments.
Peruvian resturant with the most interesting food in Paso.
Beautiful presentations with creative touches.
Waiter maid excellent recommendations including Items not available because the quality of fish was not available; also recommended a nice wine that complimented our four different selections and we were pleasantly surprised it was only $32.50.
I came from LA and wanted a Latin Restaurant. Saw the menu on line and wanted Lomo Saltado. Meat n potatoes. When we arrived, I was told that because it was Valentine's day there was only 2 items. Neither of which I eat. We ended up afterwards at Vine st saloon.
Best restaurant meal I have had in months. These folks know how to prepare and serve outstanding creative dishes. Every course was outstanding.
One of the better restaurants in Paso and it's off the beaten path. We started with the appetizer sampler and the flavors melted perfectly. We also got the empanadas which were nice and fluffy with delicious seasoning. It was served with 3 sauces that were good, but could have been more flavorful. I got the short ribs which delicately fell apart. My husband got the steak with the plantain rice — oh my god — so delicious! I wish I received more vegetables to go with it, but the carrots and green beans were nice and crisp. I wasn't super impressed with the desserts but the rest of our party really enjoyed the yam donuts. The menu has a great variety and we definitely need to go back soon!
My experience was very good I brought a friend he enjoyed his Short Ribs I tried a bite of his it was very good. I had the Rib Eye steak it was a little chewy the carrots were under cooked not al dente. We order octopus as an appetizer it was excellent a little pricey but over all very good food.
Food is great. Service was excellent. The dishes are wonderfully creative and bursting with subtle flavors.
Thanks for making “Real Food” with real ingredients.As former restaurant owners, we know how hard that is!
Amazing as always. The octopus is the best we've ever had, anywhere!
My wife and I split the Short Rib dinner. It was very tasty and we enjoyed it very much. However, I'm not quite sure that it was short ribs......they may have substituted pot roast. The 2 chunks were very large (3 inches long x 2 inches wide x 1.5 inches thick) and no fat at all....very UN-like any short rib I've ever had. My apologies to the chef if they truly were short ribs but either way we loved them.
This was our 3rd visit to this wonderful restaurant. The Peruvian menu is so unusual that’s why we love it. We have tried something different each time and will be back for sure. The waiter remembers us each time
Outstanding food, accompanied by a crisp bottle of white from a local winery. Our first experience with Peruvian food and the bar has been set — it’ll be tough to surpass this experience.
Visiting Paso Robles for New Year’s Eve weekend, and came across this gem located on a golf course. The haute cuisine doesn’t fit the restaurant space which seemed cramped and loud. The food though is amazing. The cerviche sampler was delicious. The tacu tacu seared ahi and the lettuce warp grilled paiche entrees were beautifully presented and very tasty. The dessert of half rice pudding and berry maize concoction topped the evening nicely with Peruvian digestive. Will definitely go back. 😋
Excellent food! We were driving through down and stopped for dinner and now can't wait to make the drive back to go again! We've already told numerous friends about he excellent food!
