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.

    Being located in the Pearl, one will assume that will be hyper-infatuated, with small servings, high prices and so-so food quality. Not so. However the noise level in this restaurant seriously damages the enjoyable experience of food and service they offer here. I must say that was very please with the sommelier in service, as her recommendation was spot on, and herself showing to be very knowledgeable without coming across as snobbish. Both wine list and dinner list are interesting enough to make us return despite the high noise level in the place. Portions and flavors were as expected in this restaurant level - which contradicts the general rule in Portland.

    We love this place. It was our second visit, and we will be back. This time we brought friends, who were very impressed. The habenero cocktail is amazing. I don't even drink normally, but after trying my husbands on our first visit I ordered my own this time. Perfection! The Ceveche is wonderful, in fact we've tried quite a few things on the small plates menu and all of them have been great! The first visit we sat in the bar area, and we preferred that. The other side is fine, but the bar area seems more intimate and less "big restaurant" like. Great service, and very lively.

    We lived in Peru for years, and miss it. Our dinner at Andina took us back, in the best way possible. Flavors and ingredients we had almost forgotten came to life on our taste buds, and we were transported. One of the top meals anywhere. The ambiance was a little crowded and noisy, but the food more than made up for it.

    Some friends rounded me up after work and took me to Andina for dinner. Early reservation and got a booth by a window which was wonderful for people watching and appreciating that I was not in the commute frenzy. Service was wonderfully attentive. The speciality cocktails and the food were excellent. Would recommend Andina anytime with this one caveat. The restaurant gets incredibly noisy. Our decision was made to leave was based on not being able to hear one another for a decent conversation. Finished the evening in a much quieter venue for dessert and coffee.

    I ate at Andina a couple of years ago on a business trip. We just moved to Portland and I was anxious to take my wife there on her birthday. The food was a unique array of flavors that I have not experienced elsewhere. Our server was awesome. We asked her to cascade the tapas plates comfortably so we would not be in a rush and she not only did that but suggeted a different delivery order based on the richness of one of the dishes. Can't wait to go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Andina staff went above and beyond for us. It appears there was a mistake in the Open Table booking - I confirmed that I booked for the 4th, but the confirmation email - which I did not read - put us to the 5th. So there was no table for our party of 7 on a very busy night. We were given the private dining room and treated to a most memorable evening, I think for several of our group it was far and away the most special treatment they had ever received at a restaurant. The meal was wonderful and the service attentive and very professional, but the kindness they showed to us at the outset was a miracle. (I would have put the noise level at a little high for our group had we been in the main room, but as it was it was perfect!)

    We ate at Andina on a Saturday with friends from the UK, whom we had not seen in several years. We expected some good conversation and catching up on news. The food was very good, although nothing any of us ordered was exceptional. Three of us are vegetarians, so this did limit our choices. The service was impeccable, friendly but not fawning. The advice from the wine steward was spot on. The decor of the restaurant is very nice, but the noise level was off the scale. Perhaps we just happened to be there with some especially noisy groups. Overall, we did enjoy our meal, and we would recommend it.

    The epenadas and cheese plate were great and wine suggestion was on the mark. Cocktails were super. However, my entree was the "special" seafood platter of the evening which consisted of a piece of unseasoned rock fish worth about $2, two shrimp, two bay scallops and two mussels with poorly seasoned rice. I was expecting much better. A complete miss. My wife and daughter had the scallops which looked and seemed to taste much better.

    We decided to try Andina after hearing great reviews from different sources, but the restaurant did not live up to the hype. The food was good, not stellar. All of the dishes came out looking gorgeous, but the taste was not able to justify the high prices. The bread with salsa was a first and tasted fine, but the jalapeno one was not very original as it just tasted like jalapenos put through a food processor. Seafood dishes came out as the winners, really enjoyed the crab stuffed avocadoC and the scallops. The beef heart was good to try, but not a fan of organ meats, so this one was not my thing. Prawns came out a little burned, and the purple potato with chicken ended up just being chicken salad with purple potato. Ceviche was excellent.

    The menu is innovative and fun - plus everything we had was delicious. Foodies will love the use of ingredients found rarely and non-foodies will just love that the food tastes great. Our service was horrible. Like grab a manager and say something. We sat down next to a table with a couple seated minutes after us. Watching them get refills, new bread, new sauces, plates cleaned off, drinks served, etc, while we sat there with piles of dirty plates, an empty beer bottle, no wine, no extra bread, no extra sauces, and then very slow food service was disappointing. While our waiter was polite, he was never there. The additional servers also seemed absent (except for the tables around us - where they buzzed with service).

    We received a gift card as a wedding present and used it the same night! We had a wonderful dining experience at Andina, fabulous tapas and entrees, great service, good wine, and refreshing cucumber ice cream for dessert. I'd been here before but this particular evening was especially memorable. We reserved online through OpenTable - it was quick, and reassuring to know we were arriving with a reservation in place.

    My husband had eaten here 4 months ago. He raved about the food, and was eager to take me. We researched the menu so we wouldn't miss any outstanding dishes, and we also asked our waitress for advice. We shared 6 small tapas dishes including the much-touted octopus kebab and the marinated beef hearts. We were both very disappointed: the flavors were bland and unmemorable, except for the three sauces that are brought to each table to be used as desired. The beef hearts were tough and tasted like liver, the octopus was overcooked and not as fresh-tasting as I've had elsewhere. The vegetable soup of the day was boring. We also had a causa - a potato terrine - but the yellow aji sauce seemed absent. What a comedown! I wouldn't go back.

We made a reservation since it is a very popular place and were promptly seated in their very attractive space. Our waiter was very informative and helpful and made all great suggestions. We had 5 tappas dishes to share; grilled scallops, crab stuffed avocado, muscles, and seafood wontons. Seafood wontons were very good, everything else was truly fabulous. Favorites were the muscles and scallops which both had wonderful preparations. Highly recommend this place!!
