Andina Review

This popular upscale Pearl District restaurant offers an interesting and inventive menu—a combination of traditional Peruvian and contemporary "Novoandina" cuisines—served in a large but arch- and nook-filled space. The extensive seafood offerings include four kinds of ceviche, grilled octopus, and pan-seared scallops with white and black quinoa. There are also entrées with chicken, duck, beef, and lamb. A late-night bar offers sangria, small plates, and cocktails; downstairs, a shrinelike wine shop hosts private multicourse meals. Don't miss the traditional Peruvian pisco sour, a lemon and pisco liqueur cocktail topped with a froth of egg whites and bitters. Live music Sunday through Saturday. Reservations are recommended.

    An Awesome Experience

    I was seeking out places to take my girlfriend while we were in Portland. This restaurant came highly recommended by the Fodors community, and with good reason. The menu was a little hard to read, but the wait staff was extremely helpful. The food was nothing short of outstanding. The only downfall was that a reservation was required for anything but the lounge. Didn't see that in comments! Nothing about dress either. We went in jeans and hoodies and felt out of place. I would recommend business casual. This is definitely an experience you want if you have never been to Portland! Thanks Fodors!

    It's Different and Good

    If you're looking for something different, the self-proclaimed novo-Peruvian food at Andina will fit the bill. The preparations are unique and not spicy. Some dishes succeed because they are different like the quinoa-crusted shrimp but others were not as good as they read on the menu like the duck confit. The seafood platter included unusual items like salsa stuffed mussels. More explanation and guidance from our server would have made our experience more memorable.

    Perfecta!!

    My last night in Portland, I was lucky enough to discover this amazing place. Visiting my sister, we were out in town and stopped by Andina for an app. and a drink. We were so impressed!! The bartender knew just what to order, and the live music and atmosphere were just right. I can't wait to go back!
