This is one of the best restaurants we have been to in SLO. Beautiful presentation and outstanding flavors. The service is excellent and they practice very Safe Covid-19 procedures. Felt very safe. Thank you for making our anniversary special in this trying time!

Our son who lives in San Luis Obispo recommended it and I really enjoyed the uniqueness of the decor and food selection.
My husband got the Caesar salad which had a great a different presentation and the octopus which he said was excellent. We shared beef empanadas and I got a rice dish which was great!
Next time we will come back before 5 and try one of their 3 course $20 meals which look great.

The ceviche mixto was superb. The lobster ravioli was excellent.

Service staff took care of every request promptly.

Restaurant was very Covid conscious, diners were well spread out. No seating at the bar due to Covid requirements but we still ordered cocktails once seated at our table. The Pisco Sour was excellent.

I will return to this restaurant and bring my friends.

service was lovely, but unfortunately the food wasn’t. Yucca cakes were way under seasoned, empanada dough was very tuff. The halibut was very good but couldn’t overcome the rest of the meal. I was so excited to finally eat here as a local. I’m sorry to leave a less than stellar review but was super unhappy. FYI, halter rosé way over priced.

This was my first visit to Mistura. I was in a party of three and we were all impressed with the atmosphere, service and food. We shared four dishes and left wanting to come back for another visit to taste the rest of the dishes on the menu!
P.S....the flour less chocolate cake was amazing in presentation and taste!

We had a wonderful dinner. My friend got the truffle ravioli which were to die for. I chose the short beef ribs (grass fed!) which were utterly amazing. Wish we had time to go back......I wanted to try the appetizers. Also had a lovely glass of rose!

I will definitely come back on my next trip to SLO!

Really disappointed. Heard good things about the restaurant and looking forward to Peruvian menu but the paella was dry and ordinary, the ceviche was lackluster, the potato dish was good, but tasted like picnic potato salad...very expensive without a very interesting experience.

Mistura was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint! The food was fun and delicious, drinks were yummy, and the ambiance was easy-going and interesting. Our only regret was that we couldn't try everything in this one meal. We saw lots of other yummy looking selections that other groups were enjoying. Guess we'll just have to go back!!

All 6 of us came on Saturday night. I reservation didn’t come trough- but she could seat us anyway! We got a nice table in the back. Waiter recommended paella, and we ordered. 15 min later he came back with bad news. No paella left.he suggested the Lamb dish.Lamb was horrible and dry/ too chewy. Sea bas was Delish! So was seviche. We all had a good time but I would not go back.

The restaurant is fantastic. Starting with the salads, which are not just your typical salads. Delicious. We had the paella and the filet dish with potatoes and tomatoes and rice. Everything was cooked to perfection. Lastly, the desserts are an experience. From melting chocolate to displaying your cake underneath, to a dessert featuring liquid nitrogen. You won’t be disappointed

We love the food and ambiance, however, on this night, service was very slow and items were not received in the order in which we ordered them. This was problematic, as we ordered for a child first and she had to wait while the adults food was served first.

Great variety of fresh Peruvian cuisine with all the popular dishes and some less familiar. Knowledgeable friendly service. Reasonable prices. Stylish setting. Only downside was the long wait for the appetizer.

Food was fabulous. Manager brought free dessert for the 2 birthday ladies. Le fleur is a 5 inch hollow ball of chocolate that is drizzled with a warm sauce that dissolves the ball into 4 pieces of chocolate that look like petals opening on a flower. It reveals a small piece of cake decorated with a few berries and sauce.
Presentation was spectacular and dessert was delicious

Poor, slow service - we constantly had to ask for things, starting with the menus, water, drinks, to order, etc. Our waiter basically ignored us for most of our time there. Except for the ceviche, the seafood was not fresh and the meat overcooked.

The menu is next to impossible to understand. This was not just us, I heard the table next to us complaining about it. The restaurant had a prix fixe menu and the only appetizer you could order was seafood with shellfish (a lot of people don't eat seafood or allergic to shellfish) and the whole prix fixe was $75 without a drink. Way $$$$ for what you get. After the server explained the menu we ordered the yuca appetizer it was under cooked and under seasoned. I had the mushroom ravioli for $30 ($$$) which was ok but way too rich for a main course. The ceviche was ok. They need to fix the menu, lower prices, and improve some of the courses.
