Martin Morales is also behind Ceviche, although this restaurant takes a slightly different approach. It takes its influence from Peruvian ‘picanterias’, traditional family run restaurants serving local people from breakfast through to dinner.

"This place is patchy and mad, sometimes plain wrong, like a package holiday run by maniacs. And yet it’s original and occasionally fabulous." READ REVIEW

"The ají de gallina — chicken casserole — was a lovely bowl of sunset-coloured rice in an unctuous sauce with one solitary sad drumstick atop sat crying, ‘Why am I alone? Where is my brother?’ The quinoa chocolate brownie was rather good." READ REVIEW

"Unfamiliar names and unusual combinations litter the menu, such as the chupe (seafood chowder) of black quinoa, king prawns, broad beans and giant corn, and leave 
you wondering if you’ll ever order 
a burger again." READ REVIEW

"...although we didn't walk away disappointed by any means, it still wasn't exactly a bargain. But as with Ceviche in Soho, it's an interesting, confidently idiosynractic little restaurant and if you want an introduction to Peruvian food - or are inexplicably addicted to quinoa - you could do much worse than book a table."

"It’s visually attractive, yet I couldn’t help feeling that Andina somehow adds up to less than the sum of its parts. For all the subtropical quirks, a lot of Andean food is in fact rather starchy peasant fare. Andina does more than that — but not yet quite enough." READ REVIEW

"Something about Andina is just not working. It’s not the service (friendly with a hint of upsell) or even the room; the food is just not convincing. A menu of unfamiliar dishes can have a powerful pull. But having had what we’ve had, we walk away with no regrets about dishes untasted." READ REVIEW
