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.

Would go back in a heartbeat. Shared small plates. We decided to be really adventurous. The waitress was great and helped us navigate the menu. Started with ceviche followed by asparagus, beef hearts and octopus. Each dish was different and as good as the last. The restaurant was enormous and really busy. Make reservations and if you don't like noisy... More

Food was exceptional and the service was great. I believe the owner of the restaurant (a lovely older woman) made it a point to stop at each table to chat with all the guests. Would definitely recommend and return here again. The only not-so-great thing about the restaurant was the ambiance. Very crowded and noisy, although I suppose that is... More

My son and I ate here after reading all the great reviews. Service was excellent, the waiter knew the extensive menu fabulously, the appetizers were very good ....desserts especially the canolis and the 3 different kinds of creme brûlée, were yummy but our entrees were disappointing. Scallops were rubbery and undercooked....my chicken dish nothing great. Stick to appetizers and desserts... More

Andina is one of those restaurants about which people rave and you figure, "it's Portland and they are just boosting their city.' You would be wrong!! This is a creative, exciting restaurant with cheerful servers who actually know about all the exotic ingredients and can tell you where they all come from. The owner is always hovering around making sure... More

We had a wonderful meal at Andina. If you like small plates, as we do, then this is an opportunity to try some spectacular flavors. Our party of four had a dozen small plates and we had more than enough food and an exceptional gastronomic experience.

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
