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.

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.

Andina Ratings and Reviews
We've been to Andina twice and had great experiences both times. The food is delicious and service was excellent. My only complaint is that serving sizes are small so the meal ends up being expensive. Having said that, we have no regrets about the expense given the excellent experiences. It's just that Andina is reserved for special occasions in our case. I especially loved that the owner's mom stopped by the tables to thank us for coming--nice touch!
Get the empanadas and ceviche (we've tried 2 kinds--both amazing) and the octopus and creme brulee and the boozy chocolate dessert drink...and any number of other yumminess. Personally, I prefer the small plates over the entrees, but I would eat anything they served me.
I have to say that I really like Andina. Our family had lunch here on Sunday and it was fantastic. We got a number of small dishes (empanadas, croquettes, bread with sauces, chicken skewers, and stuff tamales), that my wife and daughter shared. My daughter is a picky eater (think Mac and Cheese/Chicken Nuggets/burgers - typical kid food) and she loved everything which is saying a lot. My son got a roast beef based sandwich which he devoured. Overall the service was great, food was yummy, and the decor and environment is cool (its right in the middle of the trendy Pearl District). I’d highly recommend getting reservations, as it can be hard to get in at times, especially the weekend. Good stuff!
Food, cocktails and ambience were all very good. Corkage fee of $25 seemed high. Service was good initially but our server disappeared totally towards the end of our meal. I had to go to the kitchen and find a server who would give us our bill. When you seat people after 9pm at night, it shouldn't be a surprise that they are still there a little after 11pm. Usually a server will say good night and let you know who will help you or ask if you don't mind settling the bill. It was a bizarre end to a nice, but somewhat overpriced meal.
Our server, Manuel, was great -- friendly, not pushy, willing to let us sit and talk long after we'd finished eating. The food overall was tasty, even if my paella wasn't what I expected (unlike what I've had in Spain). Our appetizers were good, too, and the two bottles of wine we four consumed fit the food perfectly. Andina, which had been recommended to us, fully lived up to our expectations
Andina is one a favorite "go to" restaurant when I visit Portland. I've been there 3 times now and it has been excellent each time. The food and service is excellent. It has great ambiance and a wonderful menu that provides fun and conversation. The small plates are great for sharing whether business for family. It always leads to fun conversation.
Andina has excellent food and is usually a fantastic experience, this time however the service was surprisingly poor. Server took over 20 minutes to come to the table and read out the specials, when we said that we’d like to order drinks he walked away and didn’t come back for another 15 minutes, he gave information that was inconsistent with Andina’s web menu about gluten in the desserts, it was remarkable enough overall that even my guests commented. Food however was good as usual and I’ve had better experiences in the past, so perhaps an off night. Also first time I’ve been with a child and I found they were not particularly family friendly (no kids menu and the way the servers behaved in general).
We attended their NYE early seating and didn't realize that we were going to be sitting in, what felt like their basement. 3 out of the 6 who attended dinner had never been to Andina and I was raving about it, only to be lead downstairs to a room with no windows, little decor and essentially no music (we could barely hear it). The service was excellent and the meal was nice but overpriced for what we received: bread, a very small appetizer, a bite, a small entree (little protein & large portion of carbs) and dessert for $75 plus an automatic 20% tip. No drinks included. I'm a very light eater and it was just barely enough for me. I will definitely be going back but prefer their full menu, upstairs where the ambiance matches their excellent service.
Every time we visit Portland from Seattle, we always make a stop at Andina. This time we went to celebrate my fiance's birthday. It's very easy to make a reservation online through Open Table. The hostess is always very nice and attentive and they usually have your table ready for you right away. I always love the bright colors on the table and the authentic Peruvian pictures hanging on the wall. Our children love that you can color on the table while we wait for the food. Our favorite starter is the Causa Morada, I love the purple potato on the outside and the chicken on the inside. Our favorite entree is the Lomo Saltado. My fiance can make this dish at home, but the way they make it here is above and beyond. The steak is always so tender and juicy and they definitely know how to make their rice. If you have space for dessert, we recommend the Plato de Crema Quemada which is three different flavored creme brulees, which each have their own individual taste. Our waiter was Javier and he was so great and attentive to anything we needed. We will definitely be going back!
Celebrated our anniversary here—let them know in advance and we’re seated at a great table by the window. Started with some yummy cocktails (mojito was great—not too sweet just what I wanted) and then we worked our way through three different tapas-the octopus was definitely our favorite. Asked to split the paella for dinner and they happily accommodated. Just bummed we didn’t save enough room for dessert. They did bring us a complimentary sweet treat which was wonderful. Highly recommend.
