Peruvian
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.

Always love Andina, for lunch or dinner. We went to Peru last year and love Andina's authentic cuisine. Perfection!

Recently visited for our anniversary and everything was delightful! Our server was knowledgeable of the cuisine and loved that she recommended speaking with their sommelier - wine expert. If we find ourselves in Portland again we will definitely make another stop here.

For two of us, we ordered six tapas plates, each from a different menu section, plus a cocktail and a dessert. The food is perfectly fine, but neither executed well enough nor interesting enough to match the prices. There are so many great options in Portland that Andina did not impress us much by comparison. This was our first time at eating here but it felt like the kind of restaurant that was probably at the top of the heap over a decade ago and has not evolved much, coasting on reputation, location and maybe tourism. The wait staff was excellent, but the host staff was not especially attentive - we arrived 10 minutes before our reservation, and were seated 10 minutes AFTER our reservation. Meh plus.

Over all good restaurant. Very welcoming. The mother of the owner stops to welcome and greet you. A little bit pricy for the food portions and quality. I love Peruvian food and always have high expectations. We tried the cebiche, la paella de mariscos and flan. All was good, but I tried better in NY.

I would rate it outstanding if it wasn't for those mushy under cooked tamales that should have been removed from the table after we couldn't bring ourselves to eat them ---and the bill! Everything else was absolutely phenomenal! We ordered a couple of wonderful cocktails and four small plates to share as a couple. We were blown away by the quality and creativeness in each dish until the tamales. Such a simple item, but if not done well, or even okay, ends up being disastrous. Ours came last, which shouldn't have happened anyways--you save the BEST for last, and then they were mushy past the first bite and lacked any complexity. In fact they were not even cooked through! We ended the meal SO disappointed, especially when we did not eat them, pointed it out to the server who brushed it aside with "people either love 'em or don't", and still paid for them. We only fly into Portland once a year or so, and this was our only dinner spot planned for the quick trip. Sad times, Andina! We didn't even stay for dessert this time since they couldn't offer to remove the uneaten luke-warm tamale mush from our bill. We may give it another go in a few years, but never will we order those awful tamales again. We highly recommend the yukon potatoes with crab salad and spicy tuna. Best eats on our annual Portland trip by far! ---aside from those tamales.

My wife and I ate at Andina during an overnight getaway to Portland, on the recommendation of a friend. Upon arrival, we were promptly seated, and the service was impeccable throughout the meal. The restaurant is three levels, but the staffing was outstanding, and everyone from the host that seated us, the waiter that served us, and even the between course bus service ran like a Swiss watch. SUPERB service can make or break an experience, and Andina nails it.

And the food - absolutely authentic Peruvian dishes, delicious. Their Pisco Sours are the real deal - you must start with a Pisco Sour.

We loved our experience and we will be back.

I have been to Andina MANY times and this was by far the worst experience I have had on the Portland dining scene not to mention, it was the place I had chosen to celebrate our wedding and my husband's 65th birthday. Not only did we have to wait for a booth, but the service that followed was incredibly slow and it was not until the check was delivered that the server apologized citing a large party that had backed up the kitchen. The wrong drinks were brought and one of the managers delivered our entrees one at a time. The noise level was outrageous and overall, everything was just 'off'.

The tapas were wonderful. But the quinoa risotto I had was awful. No flavor. No creativity. It’s like something I could have gotten as a frozen meal from Whole Foods. Really bad. All the other food was fabulous but the quinoa ruined it all. Not sure we want to return.

We enjoyed our meal there. I would say the lamb shank scored higher than the pork chop which was asked to be cooked moist and came dry. The lamb shank had a yummy sauce and they traded out the beans for potatoes for me. I would say that the service was great. Apologies when the wait for a dish was too long and some bread and sauces as an atonement gesture. Our server Alice was very knowledgeable about everything that was served.
Next time I plan on trying the paella which everyone said was great.
Wine list is huge but very expensive (even by California standards) and corkage is $25 if you bring our own....

Things were poor and strange from the moment we were seated. We were seated with the menus. Server walked by several times and never made contact. The hostess came and asked if we wanted something to drink. I assumed she might also be a server. So we ordered the sparkling water. She came back and served it like if it was a grand cru. We each got half an inch of water in our glasses. I informed her we were ready to place the order. She marched off. The server finally came and said he heard we were ready to order. No greeting. We ordered. The ceviche was decent but there were more onions than fish. The yuka side was not a side but served all alone, overly salted and not very crispy. Dull. My mom ordered Combinado del mar however the vegetarian version was brought. I had to go fetch the server to explain the issue. Her dish was taken and soon replaced. Dull and tasteless best described my dishes Yuca rellena + Humitas de queso. Doggy bag for the dogs. Dessert. Sublime con lucuma. Dull and tasteless. Never had such boring mousse. Didn't finish. The check. As dessert was served we were given 2 little Alfajores for 'the mix up'. When it came time to pay the server informed us that a manager was needed to clear that up from the bill. Are you kidding? Why would you add that to the bill in the first place? (please dont say inventory). As we were waiting for the bill a server was setting up a table for dinner. His method? Toss forks + knifes roughly in the area were they should end up for later arrangement. So the review card comes with the initial detailed bill. No pen so can't fill that out. Send the cc for payment. Booklet comes back with signature receipts but no review card. Now that I have a pen I can't even use it for anything but pay $90 for the most overrated experience I have ever had in Portland. Yes I could have asked for it but I didn't because we were done with this place. The local food truck did a better job at providing flavor. Never Again

There was a lot of hype, from guidebooks and locals we met on the train but we were disappointed. It was fine - just not outstanding. We have eaten delicious ceviches in South America - these were just OK by comparison and the tuna sounded really interesting - it was, again, OK but very thick to be served rare, as suggested by our waiter. The pisco sour was good, but took a long time to come. So fine, just not wonderful.

I had the Hongos saltados on New Years Eve (part of the prix fixe menu) and it was extremely sour. I couldn’t quite taste anything else. Pity because the meal was quite expensive. Definitely felt like I didn’t get value for the money I spent!
