Good food and dessert as usual. I hope they will consider expanding the place soon. The space is too small to move around. The description of each dish in the menu should be clearer. I ordered the chicken dish without the word "bone-in", but turned out to be "bone-in" anyway. So wonder what is the point of saying "bone-in" in... More

If you like Cuba and authentic Cuban food you will love this little gem of a restaurant. It is beautifully decorated in Cuban and Latin American artwork, the food is authentic, fresh and delicious, and the service comes with a smile. I had the typical Cuban sandwich and it was perfect. I've been eating those for 20 years and this... More

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
