Cannot recommend this place enough! We are local to Portland and go here regularly. Almost everything on their menu is safe, and it’s easy to also get dairy-free. Their sangria is the bomb, and I love their arepas! But the coolest part is the amazing patio out back. With a fire pit and a convenient bar, it’s the perfect hangout spot anytime of year. We frequently choose this restaurant for casual get-togethers. It checks all the boxes!

Amazing food!! This place is definitely going to be one of my regular places when I make it to Portland. And I love how friendly the staff is.

The food was pretty good. The plantain starter was cold on the inside so clearly not freshly fried which was disappointing. The El Diablo meat was really rich but delicious! The smoked pollo and brisket were both well-seasoned but a bit dry in the bowl without any sort of sauce or extra veggie. The chorizo is the only thing made off site that they can't guarantee is Celiac-safe.

Delicious food, great cocktails, festive atmosphere. Fairly meat-heavy menu, but some good vegetarian options too.

Gluten free facility and no soy in anything. We asked for dairy on the side and they didnt butter our Aparitas, and gave us a bowl on the side. So aware and informational. The owner can’t have gluten so he gets it! The smoked Apollo chicken , and El Diablo pork are the best tasting meats I’ve ever had. We had the el Cana platter. Incredible

Eaten here many times over the last few years whenever I visit PDX, and every time is delicious and I’ve never had a reaction. The owner himself can’t eat gluten, so he takes it seriously. There is a disclaimer on the website about possible cross-contamination from the masa production side, but there’s never been an issue for me and I think it’s more a CYA than a real risk; everything at the restaurant is totally gluten-free. So good, non-GF people I introduce this place to keep coming back. Agua frescas are delicious and the smoky queso dip is the best thing I’ve eaten in a long time.

As a celiac, based on the reviews we intended to avoid the arepas just in case. However, we asked exactly which masa brands they used and were told a mix of P.A.N. and Bob's Red Mill, both of which we knew to be safe. We had the Teote plate with smoky pollo and it was unique and delicious and I did not get glutened. This is a casual place. Would absolutely go there again.

Great spot with fun atmosphere. We ordered the La Cena which was a huge platter with buttered arepas, choice of meats, rice/beans, cabbage slaw and salad. Absolutely delicious! Great value for high quality food. No gluten aside from beer in the place.

Great food, fast friendly service. The whole restaurant is 100% gluten free. I haven't tried the arepas yet because masa corn flour is typically contaminated with gluten. The restaurant explains this on their site and says proceed with caution. Super impressive because most people don't know that. I had the ama bowl with smoky pollo. It was delicious and I felt great after. I have celiac and I will definitely be back.

Was so good I have eaten here twice and will be going back for more before I leave the area. Ordered take out. Also, they are dedicated and definitely celiac safe as I am extremely sensitive and had no reaction either time.

I have Celiac and no reaction. Of course I told the waitor like I do at any restaurant and he told me I could eat anything on the menu. Their food is amazing and they have many gluten free ciders. Plus many dishes can be made dairy free or vegan. Will eat here again for sure.

Horrible! This place food tastes like dog meat. I woke up sick this morning. Expensive for the food that you get. I really wanted to like this place but it was horrible. Not sure if anyone who worked there was from Venezuela, everyone I saw was white. Just a pretentious Portland restaurant banking on the gluten free fad without knowledge of what celiacs is.

This place is great! We stayed in Portland for 8 days and visited here twice - we had to go back for more!

This is the BEST gluten free restaurant I have been to and I have to eat gluten free (not a lifestyle option). The food is incredibly flavorful. The arepas are a must if you are gluten free/celiac -- an absolute must. If you visit Portland and must have a gluten free diet, visit this place. You will not be disappointed. (my brother who is NOT gluten free found this place for me and he LOVES IT and will return with his wife).

Not a dedicated gluten free facility! Says so on their menu and that cross contamination could happen. Woke up dizzy today so I'm pretty sure it's from eating here last night. Only place I ate out. Wouldn't recommend to my fellow auto immune ppl.

Yum! Such great food every time! Can't say enough about the El Diablo meat choice... so good. I'm not celiac, but I'm pretty gluten-sensitive and have trouble with cc - never been an issue for me here. Go! Get the El Diablo Teote Plate!

Everything is gluten free! Yummy food. Be sure to go up stairs for better atmosphere. In better weather there in a garden to sit in. The corn cakes were great - can't wait to try the gluten free mole sauce.
