South American
Lechon is a South American dining experience that seamlessly combines the fiery cooking of Argentina, Chile and Patagonia, along with creative inspiration of the chef. Enjoy perfectly charred 28-day dry-aged ribeye, grilled octopus with chorizo, housemade piquillo pepper and pork empanadas, slow roasted lechon, refreshing ceviches and smoked bone marrow.

Executive Chef Jaco Smith consistently pushes the boundaries on traditional Latin fare by incorporating wood-fired flavors into his cuisine while boasting a view of the Willamette River that few Portland restaurants can offer. Smith comes from a large family of cattle, sheep and grain farmers. He started cooking at a young age in his mother’s kitchen. His favorite childhood memories include the tastes of dulce de leche, flan and grilled breads, reminiscent of South American flavors and commonly found on South African kitchen tables.

    We loved the Tapas. The server was a master at recommendations and delivering the dishes in a timely manner one dish at a time. The food is outstanding. We had to book early because of the demand but got to take advantage of the wonderful Happy Hour menu.

    Great service, attentive without being annoying, knowledgeable and friendly. Couldn’t ask for more from the staff. The kitchen did a great job creating inventive takes on some traditional dishes. Prices were in the range for this level of food and service for our Portland area. Lots of food choice options for our mixed group of vegetarian and meat eating friends! We’ll definitely be back! Thanks for a great meal and service!

    Had a dinner reservation for 4 last night. We all got multiple different orders and drinks so everyone got to sample so many plates. Every person could not believe how amazing each dish was. Each bite was the most amazing mouth watering bite we have had in a long time. Lechon is a must for everyone. The vibe was perfect and the drinks were delightfully on point!

    Very unique space and ambiance was enjoyable. Wasn’t too noisy and the servers came out quickly and were very kind. The menu had an amazing variety of dishes, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed.
