Dubai Marina welcomes its first Peruvian restaurant

From the streets of Peru to the sands of Dubai, Andina is a meeting place of music, culture and Latin American spirit.

London-based Peruvian restaurant Andina has made its Middle Eastern debut at Marina Gate Tower overlooking the waters of Dubai Marina

The traditional “Picanteria” first found popularity in London’s trendy Shoreditch neighbourhood, where it gained a reputation for using fresh, seasonal ingredients in the preparation of traditional Peruvian dishes with a modern twist.


Andina Dubai promises to bring the same laid-back yet vibrant atmosphere to its new location. Embodying the community-focused atmosphere of Andean eateries, the restaurant truly lives by its motto of “Aqui Se Cocina con Cariño”, which roughly translates as “here we cook with love.”

The dining room is anchored around a central bar where foliage and fishing baskets hang from the ceiling, and textured fabrics bring pops of colour to a space decorated in fiery hues of yellow and orange. On the terrace, guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy a unique dining experience whilst soaking up the views of Dubai Marina.


Offering hearty Peruvian dishes that emphasise tradition, it’s clear that the culinary team at Andina takes great pride in creating authentic Peruvian cuisine. The restaurant’s menu features a variety of signature dishes such as Ceviches, Grilled Octopus, Panca Glazed Beef Brisket, Salmon Tiradito, Beetroot & Cauliflower Causa, and Anticuchos. The menu also includes a range of Latin American-inspired beverages and cocktails, with a particular emphasis on the traditional Peruvian drink Chicha Morada, made from purple corn.


Whether you’re looking for a casual meal or a special occasion dinner, Andina offers a dining experience steeped in diverse Andean flavours.
