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.

WOW!!! Best lunch available in Portland. There is nothing on the menu that I would not recommend. Desserts are to die for. Try the new Passion Fruit Cheese Cake.

Thank you Stewart! We have been trying to get the word out about how great our lunch is, so thank you for doing that for us. It is a more inexpensive and relaxed way to experience a normally pricey and busy restaurant. We look forward to seeing you again!

We sat downstairs which is much quieter than upstairs. The food is always very good. I had the El Pato/Duck Confit which had one of the best sauces I've ever had. Also the green salad with hearts of palm. We had it split for a little extra, but you got a little more and it was fine for two

The food, as always, was delicious. The crab-stuffed avocado could have been more flavorful. The avocado wasn't ripe yet, so it was stiff, and a little bland. The spinach/cheese empanadas were delicious, and the arroz con mariscos was also very delicious. The pinot noir rose that you had as your selection wasn't very good.

I don't particularly like being downstairs, because to me it has the feeling of being on a sidewalk, and there are no windows to look out. Other than that, I really enjoyed my time.

See you soon, I'm sure.

We were a bit disappointed in the removal of some of the vegetarian dishes (My wife is a vegetarian and I am not) so when we found this restaurant just a few short blocks from our plays at Portland Center Stage. We park at 11th and Davis, walk to Andina, enjoy a great meal, then walk back to the theater.

My absolute favorite place to go in Portland- I love the flavors and interesting combinations. They prepare food in ways I would never know to create, but yet every bite tastes amazing and delicious. The servers are attentive, bartenders are knowledgeable, atmosphere is warm and live musicians as masterfully talented (understanding how to be in the background and create setting and mood) Portland is a foodie town.. I feel I most try other places and I do, but this is the one where I keep returning over and over.

Pictures from over the last three months-

Food was good - paella and empanadas were the best. Service was really great and the environment was lovely. However, the food portion was a little bit small and overpriced. The avocado crab/prawn salad was mostly salad leaf and had only half avocado and two prawns.

I was set to love Andina when making our dinner reservation. Upon arriving to the restaurant it looked nice and it had a good crowd. From the host stand we were taken to our table in the lower level. This is the level with a couple tables but mostly used for private dining. Service was very good although I felt a little rushed along the way. Beverages were good, food was good. My expectations of this place were really, really high as it was ranked high on several lists. So in comparison it disappointed. Come with an open mind and make your own opinion. With so many options in Portland I can’t say this would be my first choice.

Another great evening at Andina. Always good and my wife being from Peru really enjoys the food and drinks.
We really missed the humatas. We were looking forward to them and were a little disappointed where we found out they were no longer on the menu.

Andina
Responded on September 11, 2019

It is a great compliment when someone from Peru enjoys the food! Taking the humitas off the menu was a tough choice, but the chef and owners have their reasons. Hopefully something else on the menu may be able to take its place!

Thank you! We were trying Andina for the first time and celebrating a friend’s birthday. We not only had a delicious meal with amazing service, our birthday girl was treated to a special (and beautifully crafted) dessert that surprised our whole table. It was just an extra step that showed how much you care about your customers. We will be back soon to try more of the tasty menu choices!
