Great Peruvian restaurant in Melbourne, it's catered for Australian so a lot of the authentic ingredients are not there but it's still very enjoyable. That's why I won't give it a 5 star, I do think they should use more of the authentic plating and ingredients. So if you ever go to Peru, don't expect this kind of food - it's waaaaaay better! This is coming from a Peruvian ;) See less

In this place we had many feelings. First of all about the food, I have to accept it was excellent super tasty, I’ve tried Peruvian food before in a few restaurants in Melbourne and this is the best talking about food. The original ceviche is a must to eat there !! But there are also some things they should take in account because these can make the restaurant less attractive: 1. Staff: some of my friends didn’t know about Peruvian food and when they asked about the dishes, the waitress wasn’t kind to explain and serve. We also ordered paella, sea food with rice and as I said their food is amazing, but that one had pieces of clams, I suppose when they were cooking it one of those were broken, we could break a tooth eating that paella, we spoke to the staff but they didn’t do anything, they just said they’ll be more careful next time, what made us mad.

Amazing ceviche that is exactly like you would get in Peru and really nice pisco sours. Unfortunately we were on a set menu that came with the charcoal chicken that I don't believe is on the main menu which is probably a good thing because it was a little on the bland side. I will like to go back and try more food on the menu like the lomo saltado. See less

Stumbled upon this place and decided to give it a go. It was my first time trying Peruvian food and i loved everything i have tried! The pisco is a must-try as well as the ceviches. See less

Overall the place was great! Really enjoyed the flavours, and the decor was beautiful. Portions could be slightly bigger for the price, but other than that I definitely recommend this place. See less

The tastes brings you to a quick trip to the Peruvian flavours! The restaurant is beautiful and the plates presentation are great! I loved the ceviche as entree, a friend of mine ordered a tiradito, then lomo saltado as a main and a chilcano as a drink. For the dessert we were served picarones. Recommended 100%! See less

If you order what is truly Peruvian, you will get authentic Peruvian… and it is really good! Ceviche and Lomo saltado served with a side of rice and corn! I love that there is desert options with Lucuma aswell. Chicha morada and Inca Cola, yummy! With that being said, there were unhappy people in our party for various reasons such as dry meat, to small of a portion, drinks to sweet, value for money… I know that Ekeko is new but the portions and prices didn’t make complete sense and might need a revisit for better balance. Another standout that truly deserves mentioning is the Paella. It might not be authentic Spanish made but definitely Peruvian influenced and it was a real beauty! My strongest tip would be, order Peruvian when eating at a Peruvian restaurant. This had such 5star potential but the inconsistency of my party’s experience pulled it down to a 4star. If I ordered what my husband ordered, My review would have been a 2 star followed by no recommendation. See less

Amazing hidden gem! Couldn’t be happier to find them after months trying to find back the great taste that i used to know at Harley House. This is so much better, more personality with a nice and cosy ambiance. The team is really attentive and bubbly and the food amazing as usual. Will recommend and bring more people in! All the best!

Let's welcome this great Peruvian restaurant on Toorak Street! The octopus is super soft, the various pisco sour cocktails are delicious and the service is attentive and kind (the maitre job was excellent). They are fully licensed (no byo). I'll be back with friends❤️ See less

Ekeko is a nice Peruvian restaurant with the kitchen at the front and bar in the middle which seperated the two dining areas. This is great as it creates a beautiful vibe of noise, smells and ambience. The food is beautiful Peruvian food wine well and the scallops were a highlight for me. Drinks menu is very good with a good cocktails list and more. Service is friendly and knowledge but not the most attentive, you will have to wait or chase them for another drink or water top ups. All in all, worth a try for good Peruvian food See less

Dined at Ekeko on Saturday night with the boys and we all loved it. The food was genuine Peruvian food, cooked by Peruanos and was delicious. The Pisco Sours were perfect and the service was excellent. I will definitely be returning. See less

A fantastic Peruvian restaurant and a must-visit for all the foodies and not in Melbourne! Their dishes are vibrant, fun, and not your standard affair (look at the pics, they talk for themselves!) I went there with a group of Latin friends who were strongly impressed by the rich and beautiful flavors that reminded them of home. The Peruvian experience doesn’t stop with their food. They do also offer an interesting and extensive menu of Pisco Sours (Peru’s national cocktail). Oh, and have you ever tried the Inca Kola?! Fun and attentive staff as well. In case you can’t tell, I’ll definitely be back!! See less

Better Peruvian food than what I had in Peru! Absolutely incredible meals, all amazing and delicious. The ceviche, causas and lomo saltado were all to die for. There is a very funky courtyard at the back, awesome atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Would definitely recommend! See less
