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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "Food and drinks were excellent. The service, once we were seated, was great. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food preparation questions we had. Interesting flavors thoroughout the meal. And the pisco sours were to die for."

  • "I felt like there's a lot of hype around this restaurant and the food was just average. Cocktails were delicious and atmosphere was fun and lively."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "Food was good but not outstanding, I will go back again but only on a special occasion. Thought the service was fantastic except for the long wait time for our main course to come out. took about 1 hour for our food to arrive at our table after ordering, maybe even longer."

  • "Repeat customers from Seattle. My only recommendation is to reserve *way* ahead of time."

  • "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."

  • "We loved this restaurant. This was by far our best meal and liveliest spot of our vacation to Portland. I can't recommend more highly."

  • "Especially love the ceviche! Street car accessible. Peruvian food at its best."

  • "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."

  • "We had a great time at Andina. This is our third visit. The first was a great evening squeezed into the bar having excellent Peruvian beer, and small plates. The second was a group downstairs in the special room. This time it was just the two of us. Our waiter was excellent, and the food never fails to amaze."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "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."

  • "Beginning with beguiling cocktail choices, followed by small plates and then entrees, the offerings were beautiful as well as delicious. Would definitely recommend this as a 'must-do' when visiting Portland."

  • "The restaurant was a bit too noisy and frenetic for me but it was Saturday night. However the food is to die for, the cebiches wonderful (we shared a medium Mixto Chorillano) and followed with Conches del Senor de Sipan - the best scallops we have ever eaten. We would definitely eat mthere again on another visit to Portland"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The sashimi special may have been the best ever. The lime/ginger gelato outstanding. Staff spectacular. Owner visited our table; very genuine."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "no need to order a big entree if you share several tapas as we did: cebiche, tuna, octopus, beef tartar ; and don't miss the desserts (flan or ice cream)"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Every time we come to Portland it's a mandatory stop for us. We usually share three of the appetizers and one of the entries. Food is great and it's an amazing restaurant."

  • "We were on vacation with our teen children and wanted a fun, out of the ordinary experience for our budding foodies. Andina delivered! You can't miss with anything on the menu. The scallops are a must try. The duck, lamb & boar were also amazing. Unique flavors lots of different spices & ingredients -all delicious!"

  • "A friend told how highly he thought of Andina. He had been twice and was extatic about the food. When friends visited from San Francisco we grabbed a reservation (3 weeks in advance) and went to Andina for a special occasion. The decor, food, and service went beyond our expectations. BUT, only on rare occasions could we hear eachother across the table. I would go back for lunch-hoping the noise level would be tolerable. The noise could be helped alot be dropping thich fabric panels from the ceiling. Do people really like to shout at eachother at a good restaurant?"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We mostly do the tapa menu so everyone can get a taste. I love that you can get small, medium, or large and the waitstaff are very knowledgeable about how much is too much or just right for your group. We were disappointed in the tuna.....sliced thin, marinated in?.....we left most of that, but the other dishes were stellar as always."

  • "A lovely restaurant in the pearl district, great location for lunch. I suggest trying their fried seafood wontons and a margarita!"

  • "As a connoisseur of Peruvian food, this is the best I have had. The service was the best I've had in ANY restaurant and Mama Juana makes you feel as if you are the only person that matters in her restaurant!"

  • "My sister and I were extremely happy with our meal. We shared two entrees, and Robert our waiter did a wonderful job bring split plates after we were completely ready for the next course. We shared a dozen oysters, then we shares the duck entree, then we shared the lamb. We had old fashioned for drinks. Amazingly they changed it all up a it to a accommodate gluten ant dairy sensitivity requests. But here is the classy part. I met a wonderful couple sitting next to us, and we found a lot in common with them so decided to surprise them with a by paying for their meal. So I left extra cash with Robert and he took care of the rest! The couple texted me later that night to say thank you. It's rare to feel so inspired to pay for a strangers meal."

  • "We enjoyed sangria and small plates. We had stuffed peppers, smoked fish, purple potatoes and an assortment of creme brûlées. The flavors were fantastic! Our server was extremely patient as we took our time ordering--two old friends catching up and we were not rushed at all."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We had plates of tapas, and each was more outstanding than the last (tartare, cebiche, crab-stuffed avocado, scallops, stuffed yuca even the quina tabule). Delicious mains, wines paired perfectly. Waiters brought free desserts to help us celebrate the anniversaries. Only criticisms are that it is a very darkly lit dining space so the elders in our party had trouble seeing, and we had trouble iding the delicious ingredients in the dishes. Also, it can be very noisy, it's a happening spot!"
