Still Fabulous for Foodies!

I took my wife back to South Bend Bistro in July, and we remain impressed with the food and service. My shrimp cake appetizer was nothing short of fabulous, as was my duck entree - great saucing and ample sizes. My wife's salmon was perfectly prepared and delicious. The wine list had a good... read more

This was supposed to be the go to spot in Sunriver, so on a recent Stay-cation we made reservations. We were treated horribly from the start, waitress was very inattentive, didn't know wine list or champagne at all. There were several large tables that had way better service. We were seated at a window seat which felt like we were... More

Small intimate restaurant serving excellently prepared lip smacking tasty food using regional food sources. Recommend the shrimp cakes and the halibut. I doubt either would disappoint. My wife was equally impressed with the pork tenderloin. Be forewarned though, tables close together making intimate conversation hard, if not impossible. Call ahead for reservations. We were there on a Wednesday night at... More

South Bistro is by far the best restaurant in Sunriver if not bend- Jamie and Lars do an amazing job at making you feel like you are in someone's home - the food is always 100% - tasty, unique and flavorful and just the right portions - we had the halibut and salmon this past week - amazingly good and...

This is just the best place for a wonderful dinner. The setting is delightful, the staff unsurpassed and the food delicious. I have eaten here more than 10 times, we just keep going back. Each time the experience is top notch. You can't go wrong at the South Bend Bistro.

This is one of the nicer places to eat at in Sunriver. The menu isn't that big, but the food we had was prepared really well. Nice selection of wines. If you're there in the summer, the deck in the back is a nice place to enjoy.

The place is very nice and you get the feeling of being in somebodies home for dinner. The problem with that was that the chef was too proud to listen to customers. We ordered two entrees. One of them was a stake cut which was suggested by the waitress. The stake was not cooked rare as requested and the chef,... More

We had a great dinner here on their outdoor deck. We all had salads, entrees, and desserts. Everyone enjoyed their whole meal. Everyone was raving that they had the best mashed potatoes, green beans and Caesar salads! Best meal out all summer!

Just had a great dinner in Sunriver! It was our second visit this year to the South Bend Bistro and, again, the food and service were excellent. I had sturgeon coated in macadamia nuts and my wife had the crab cakes. Both were delicious. They have a nice wine list that includes some very good regional wines. The service is... More

My sister and her husband and I ate at the Bistro and enjoyed our meals. Everything was of high quality and tasty. However, we were taken aback when the hostess called us to ask us to come in earlier for our reservation to fill in their schedule. We did as asked, and we were the only ones dining in the... More
