Spring break and Bend has lots of tourists. Several found their way to Kayo's yesterday [Tuesday 3/24]. A table next to ours had a couple from the Bay Area. Repeat Bend visitors. Their comment as they left..."Wow I wished we found this place earlier." What caught their attention is the Kayo's is now making their own ice cream and the... More

Friends had recommended this restaurant, so I took our family to "check it out". Bend Oregon is not known for its steak houses, so we didn't expect the 'best'. We concluded that the food was ok...not great.

My husband and I started in the lounge. My lemon drop was terrible and I didn't finish, so we were a little nervous about ordering food! We moved to the restaurant which is very nice and well-decorated. We got the turf and surf for two. Our steaks were incredible! The vegetables were also amazing. The only thing I would change...

This has not been on our radar of a restaurant in Bend to try, but when friends invited us out and wanted to go here, we will willing to give it a try. Though the location isn't very trendy, (located off business 97 just North of the underpass), we were pleasantly surprised. Delighted in fact by the food and the... More

We had fresh oysters on the half shell, my wife and I split a dozen, we split a caesar salad and then my wife had shrimp and oyster linguini and I had lobster cioppino. Our friends had brought a wonderful claret for us to share. The oysters were awesome, the... More

We had our anniversary dinner there. Lobster tails were out of this world! And the management treated us to desert and coffee. Pricey, but worth it.

Kayo really know his stuff in the kitchen! He is definitely "old school classic" but his menu is fresh, locally and well sourced and his cooking techniques would make a French Chef smile! He is definitely a hidden treasure in Bend, Oregon, which is packed with excellent restaurants. Be sure to try the abalone, the soft shell crab and his... More
