Description: 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.

Andina was recommended to us by friends and the food and service totally exceeded our expectations! Service was extremely friendly but very professional, atmosphere was a nice blend of formal (white table cloth) and casual, and the food was out of this world. They have a wide variety of tapas and so, rather than order an appetizer and entree, we... More

Went in a group of four to celebrate my birthday. I typically dislike tapas because I always leave hungry! Andina has both mains and tapas, but each dish to share comes in three sizes, which was fantastic. I haven't seen that at other tapas restaurants and it seems like an obviously smart thing to do. So, the food was fantastic... More

Peruvian cuisine is on fire - what is not to like with the fusion of Asian, seafood, Andean, Latin American and some exotic ingredients. Andina brings many of these elements to the table but not with the quality, finesse and flavors that justify its pricing. Particularly with respect to the tapas, be wary of the pricing - the $22 sized... More

I have found that sometimes top Tripadvisor ratings can be a hinderance as the restaurant cannot keep up with the standards that have earned them those ratings to begin with. This may be one of those situations. After reading all of the many positive reviews, we gave Andina Restaurant a try. Unfortunately, we hit the restaurant on a night when... More

The food here was so delicious, we went with a group of 7 and everyone loved their food. The only problem was that we were so filled up on their small plates that by the time our entrees came we were so full! I guess that's a good problem to have. The grilled octopus app was to die for...I still... More

My friend and I had a huge feast at Andina and we enjoyed every morsel. We tried ceviche, fried yucca, soup, different kinds of vegetables and seafood. Everything was delicious, we loved biking to the cool neighborhood, the restaurant is airy and open and you can people watch sitting near the windows. The servers were personable and efficient. We would... More

Many interesting small plates to choose from, although quality varied a bit from dish to dish.A chicken dish I ordered was basically friend chicken tenders. Other dishes worked much better, including a delicious tuna small plate. Lots of Quinoa, which is probably exceeded only by kale for trendiness. Of course, Peruvian cuisine in general is hot right now, so this... More

Mainly what I have to say is "WOW!" We had such a wonderful experience here, on our first visit to this restaurant, that we can't say enough good things. We can't believe we've never eaten there before, and urge you not to wait! The ambiance is warm and inviting, with an energetic buzz of families and friends having a good... More

This was our favorite dinner in Portland. This is a large and happening restaurant which means it can be loud and as others have stated the tables tend to be close together. Especially the two tops. The restaurant offers an extensive drink menu with creative and tasty handmade cocktails along with an extensive and "reasonably" priced wine selection. We enjoyed... More
