Spanish
Urdaneta offers traditional and modern tapas with a strong accent of Spain's Basque region. Chef Javier Canteras and team draw their inspiration from Javier's family recipes, his childhood and recent travels to Spain, combined with local ingredients of the Pacific Northwest. Our menu is complimented by a drinking list of Spanish wines, vermouth and sherry, as well as seasonal sangria and house cocktails. Our outdoor street seating is along bustling Alberta Street, and our indoor dining has a front row view of the open kitchen.

    Really interesting food. The Gilda and the gazpacho were out of this world. The sauce on the pulpo was a bit too much for us (although the pulpo itself was really good). We loved the ingenuity and skill that most of the dishes showed, and would be happy to return any time.

    Went to Urdaneta for the 1st time to celebrate out anniversary. Loved it! The food was well executed with lots of options, and delicious. Our waitress Erika helped make out night. She was charming, well informed and enthusiastic about the menu, and able to answer all of our questions. The space is small and intimate - it felt cozy.

    From the moment we walked in the door, the entire staff worked to ensure we had an immersive and educated experience. From wine pairings to well-tailored suggestions about the menu items, this team works to make Urdaneta more than just a meal. Every dish we had was unique and flavorful; there is intense thought put into every aspect of their menu. The dining area is small, but it never felt cramped or crowded. The open kitchen makes it feel like you are eating a family meal in abuela’s home. I can’t say enough about this place. It is a must visit in Portland.

    Urdaneta is the best restaurant in Portland! We have no complaints. The food is outstanding, service is great and the wine list is impressive. Our out of town guests were amazed and ready to return. The noise level indoors seems to be high in all good restaurants, I think because people are eager to return to “life” and are enjoying great food and friends. Urdaneta is a neighborhood gem. They shouldn’t stop doing exactly what they do and who they are.

    All dishes are unique, beautifully prepared and presented and delicious. One's tastebuds are not accustomed to being treated so well and delicately. The Spanish and Basque wine selection is extensive and includes the best of whites, reds and rosés. The wait staff is attentive, informative and never overbearing. They clearly enjoy being of service.

    Delicious, imaginative, carefully made tapas in a rustic and energetic smallish, warm and vibrant setting. Loved our birthday celebration there. The wine list was decent and the sherry we had was so good. Order lots of tapas, they're small. We had 6 plus dessert and it was almost enough. Highly recommended!
