A word from Andina
Andina draws inspiration from the native culinary traditions of Peru, as well as from the contemporary cooking by some of Peru’s leading chefs. Owner Doris Rodriguez de Platt, collaborates with Andina’s kitchen team to develop a menu that celebrates her family’s Andean roots, interweaving the ideas and techniques of both Criollo and Novo-Andean cuisines. The kitchen sources native and local ingredients to create dishes at once traditionally rooted and personally inspired. Founded in 2003, Andina emerged as one of the region’s leading Peruvian restaurants and continues to generate wide appeal within the food communities in and around Portland, and much further afield.

    Perhaps it is because we are from out of town (NYC) or perhaps we just lucked out with our other dining choices in the area, but this was a distant 4 out of 4 of the dinners we had in Portland despite being our 2nd most expensive meal. To be fair, we probably would have spent more if our waiter wasn't in such a hurry for us to leave (service was extremely rushed, and we got the sense that he was doing us a favor by giving us his 5 minutes of time). The food was delicious and classics were perfectly executed but we can't understand why this is such a popular place as there are many, many better options in town.

    This was our second time and the second was no better than the first dining experience. There is nothing special about the food and I have concluded that it is highly rated because it is a different cuisine than is normally seen in the area.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    We chose Andina to celebrate our anniversary and what a right choice this was! The food is creative & flavorful, the signature drink was out of this world. We received our desserts as a gift from the restaurant with a beautiful note in liquid chocolate to celebrate our anniversary, truly a surprise and so delicious. Many restaurants will comp a pre-determined dessert for an event, but Andina gifted us our choice, so generous. The owner stopped by our table and was so genuine and took a moment to bless our anniversary, she is a true gem. We will always choose Andina as one of our dining spots when visiting Portland.

    Our waiters eyes lit up when explaining the menu. The selection and interesting foods were a foodies dream. However sitting a women in direct line of the men's washroom and a table that had a very busy, very narrow aisle way, with a loud group of cursing men made our experience less than desirable. Too bad. We won't be back or recommend it to anyone else especially when we made reservations several weeks prior. It seemed that they were oblivious to the tables obvious challenges.

    Took our daughter and son-in-law here for a special occasion to celebrate and were so disappointed! Both my daughter and my fish dishes were raw in the center. The waiter was extremely apologetic and sweet and offered to have them redone,saying it would only take 5 minutes. We waited 20 min to get our second meals, in fact the bus people cleaned up the two men's dishes and tried to pick up our silverware and we had to explain we hadn't gotten our meals yet. Nice that we were given a one bite appetizer to eat while the men were eating and some ice cream later but the whole celebration dinner was ruined having to eat in two shifts!

    We were put in a corner table at the end of the room. At first, I was going to ask that they move us as it was a VERY SMALL table and I am 6'10. Also being a tucked away table sometimes they take a beating in the service area. That did't happen here, service was suberb with the exception of forgotten cream and sugar which was quickly remedied. The back corner spot was also far less noisy. We could at least carry on a conversation although one of the parties near us was extremely loud. Had we been "out in the open" there would have been no way we could have heard each other without shouting.

  • Table Next to Restroom -- TWICE
    PortlandFoodie
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    This is our second time there. Both were special occasions for us. Unfortunately, on both occasions, we were seated (table for 2) right next to the men's restroom -- even though BOTH of my Open Table reservations explicitly asked not to be seated near a toilet. This time we asked to move tables. Let's face it: it's impossible to celebrate an anniversary or share a romantic meal when men are constantly heading in/out of the john! I've traveled extensively throughout Latin America and lived there for 5 years. The food at Andina is authentic & wonderful, esp the tapas but we won't be back.

    Very good food, nicely presented. We chose about 4 small plates, 2 mediums for 2 of us and were pleased with all . None totally wow'd us but none were less than very good either (we're much pickier than most . . . so prepare to be wowed). Service was excellent . . . many waiters bringing many dishes from multiple directions. You do have to catch-and-ask if you have questions; but, when you do, the answers are knowledgeable and thorough. My only negative is that it was WAY too loud. All surfaces, ceiling, walls, floors, are hardwood and the voices just reverberate into a loud din. Loud enough I may take ear plugs next time. My cocktail that had a ginger sugar fused on th glass - not granular - smooth and wonderful addition.

    I know this restaurant is very busy and popular, which absolutely deserves to be. When I needed to make a reservation change, I felt very accommodated. I expected to have to cancel for making such a last minute change on a Saturday evening. Instead, management made an exceptional adjustment that worked for my party perfectly. I've taken all my visiting friends and family here. I was even proposed to here. It's my top restaurant in Portland for quality, unique food, amazing ambiance, and excellent service.

    I only get to Portland once a year on business - Andina has become a tradition for me, my co-workers and key customers. The food ingredients are familiar but the preparation and presentation are unique and wonderfully delicious. We order plates for sharing and have never been disappointed. On this visit, it took a while for our large group to get our cocktail order placed. But, the wait staff was henceforth very attentive and helped make informed decisions from the menu.

    The food was undoubtedly amazing, however the rest of the experience was nothing better than average. Our server seemed to forget about us a couple times, granted it was ridiculously busy, but still, a prompt drink order is a necessity I think. It also seemed like the walls just bounced sound off them and right back to you... It was difficult to hold a conversation across the table. Otherwise, beautiful restaurant, beautifully created food, and the lamb was one of the best I have tasted.

    We came here for our 2nd anniversary. I found it online, yelp I think, it had good reviews and I can see why. Everything that came to our table was amazing and distinct in its own flavor. The waiter David was so attentive and super smart. He was a rock star waiter. One of the owners came by to say hi and give a history on the purple corn drink. Which by the way if you eat there get the purple corn drink! Menu doesn't do it justice. The filet migon was fantastic! I can't think of one bad thing to comment on. I pray we can get a babysitter so we can go again.

    My wife and I randomly ate here at noon on a Saturday. We have no complaints. The food was fresh and amazing with great flavors, the staff was super friendly and their complimentary bread with Peruvian sauces are to die for. The plates are a bit small, it's kind of tapas style and the price is a bit high but the ingredients and flavors make up for it. We had the empanadas, conchas a la parrilla and classic cebiche. All great. Their cocktails are delicious too. We had the sangria and a margarita and they were both perfect.
