The entrees are great but I can’t get past the tacos, ceviche and sopes! And their spicy margaritas are delicious. I recommend to friends that you can get a truly great meal for cheap here by simply ordering multiple items off of the appetizer list.

Nuestra Cocina is located in a gentrifying neighborhood of Southeast Portland, far from the city's downtown. (It is, however, easily accessible from downtown directly on the #4 bus route which runs on Division Street.) It's got a "cozy" neighborhood feel, but it's large enough to...More

Came on recommendation of a couple friends. Did not disappoint! Genuine Latin food. Maybe a bit pricey, although quality is excellent. Didn't have any drinks. However, there is a variety of sangria, margaritas, and other drinks that the other patrons seemed to enjoy.

Upon my partner's request, our waitperson talked us through his favorites, an octopus appetizer among them. Stunning. Deep. Delicious. Perfect. Everything else we ate (my fish, my partner's pork, the cheesecake we shared) was spectacular.

We always drop by Nuestra Cocina when the whole family is in Portland. The menu is diverse (within the cuisine) and the margaritas are tasty. Service is prompt, knowledgable and welcoming. The house made tortillas and the Tacos de Puerco are favorites. Personally, I enjoy...More

We just ate appetizers, they were all good. The mezcal drinks were amazing. Service was excellent. We ate here with our one year old daughter, she also ate everything that wasn't spicy. (And I accidentally gave her some that was way too spicy for her....More

Depends on what time you get there No more than 20 minutes I get there at opening time and take my time and enjoy watching the plates go out while I sit at the bar
