We visited Pambiche for the first time and were delighted with the ambiance, food, and service. The restaurant is warm and friendly decorated with charming posters and nick-nacks. The service was excellent. The waiter was able to help us order meals that were tasty and solved some food allergy issues. And the entrees were yummy. The arroz con pollo was... More

Wow what a lovely find! I felt like I was back in Havana! We had plantains to start, then I had the black beans with a delicious avocado salad and hubby had the Cuban sandwich. Both were delicious and generous in size. I look forward to coming back to try their brunch also!

My family an I enjoyed a late lunch and coffee here the day after Thanksgiving. The decor is bright and the service is excellent. We had a variety of vegetarian dishes and they were delicious too. And the coffee drinks are a treat. H

First cuban food I've tried, good choice of small plates during happy hour, very good (but quite expensive) cocktails and a great sweet! The personnel is very kind and the room design is well done!

Everything was delicious here, the pet friendly patio had heaters, only downside is that it is so popular that you need to go early to get a seat inside or outdoors. We will definitely return to this place again.

Cuban Food so far, far away! Being Cuban-American puts me in a great position of having the real thing and the 'wanna-bes' all my life... I've got to say, that every time I visit in-laws in PDX, I try to make a pit-stop @ Pambiche. It may not be perfect Cuban cusine, satisfying to the taste buds, and for being... More

Pambiche is located in a congested area of Glisan with apartments on one side and an empty service station on opposite side of the street. Parking is a problem, we were there on a Tuesday evening, but going North of Glisan into the residential area its better. The building is a two story, painted a funky blue . The restaurant... More

Had a delicious late lunch. Beans and rice; fried chicken in mojo sauce, which is strongly favored by citrus; codfish croquettes; flan. All for $20. Great value. Service friendly and helpful. Interior was bright and funky. Lots of seating outside with heat lamps. Will revisit next time for breakfast.

We went as a group of 4 for Sunday lunch/brunch. I don't eat eggs and there wasn't any item without them on their brunch menu. I was a little concerned that they wouldn't service any lunch items, but they did. We ended up having an ode to fried foods - a little hard to avoid. The empanadas picadillo were delicious... More
