We went to Pambiche for a birthday dinner. It was just 4 of us and our first time here. We loved how everyone sits so close together and you can ask what others are eating and no one gets annoyed. Everyone enjoyed talking about what...More

Being from Florida, I am always craving a good Cuban place. This surpassed my expectation, the Cuban sandwhich was fantastic, so was the cafe con leche and the mojitos (includes a real piece of cane sugar--that's how you know it's the good stuff!) We finished...More

Stumbled on this restaurant while staying in the neighborhood. I'd never tried Cuban food before so have no comparisons but I did enjoy the experience and food. Wait staff is super friendly and service was great. Plates are large enough to share.

That may account for the perpetual lines that snake out the front...More

I've been a fan of Pambiche for many years. Unfortunately this last time, not so much. The food is delicious, as always, but the service was lacking. I called to place an order to go, and then was told the menu prices online were not...More

We came to Portland from Ohio on a food trip, we own a restaurant and wanted to get new ideas. Pambiche was one of the best places we experienced. The food was really excellent, well prepared and the service was on point! We had two...More

I adore Pambiche. This is one of the places that if someone hasn't been to before, I will take them. The food is fantastic, and worth the wait. And 99% of the time, there WILL be a wait, so come prepared to wait outside probably...More
