Barbecue
Bluestone American BBQ features a Latin American spin on authentic low and slow traditions from the US BBQ belt. Chef Alvaro Malel draws inspiration from his Uruguayan heritage, and his passion for cuisines from both American continents to reimagine smoked classics like Yearling Beef Short Rib with chimichurri, and Pit-Braised Pulled Lamb with salsa criolla and arepas.

His talent for bringing together the best of North and South American food traditions has been a drawcard for diners across Melbourne since the restaurant opened seven years ago. He credits the success of Bluestone to his Uruguayan culture and heritage, which is all about “food, family and fire…BBQ is a feature of all my best memories. There’s no better way to celebrate milestones, or to just kick back and have fun with the people you love. Bluestone has always been about creating that experience for other people.”

    Cute little place with amazing food and they made sure we couldn’t fit any more in. The Cuban pulled pork and the fire roasted peppers were the fave and the cocktails were spot on as well. Very friendly and helpful staff and value for money was fantastic. Will definitely be back soon.

    Still loving this place .... One small thing, bring back the original recipe of Southern fried chicken. I started going here 7yrs ago & the chicken back then was thick & juicy with a beautiful coating. We will be back though 😉

    Great ambience, delicious food and friendly informative staff. The set up with the BBQ pits displayed within the restaurant all add up to the experience. We tried the Feast 3 to get an idea of all they had to offer. I can't say there was anything we didn't enjoy. Thank you guys, we will definitely be back☺️

    Just really helpful service, the service was also friendly, pressure free and genuine. The food was amazing. It was a little noisy, maybe customers could have been spread out a bit more as it wasn't busy.

    Service was great and they were patient as the rest of our party arrived a little late, feast 3 was excellent outside of the rib which was a little disappointing - but at this price tag the volume of food was incredible and overall very tasty, and the cocktails were great.
