Simply the best!

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!

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

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

Great atmosphere and food. The sturgeon was baked excellent. I see why this establishment is the number one rated restaurant in Sunriver.

Second visit for us in two years. Nothing has changed with a varied menu, reasonable prices, attentive service, and a quiet atmosphere. The food is attractively presented and absolutely delicious. You won't find better in the Sunriver area.

For a romantic evening with tablecloths, excellent food and great service this is the perfect choice. The bistro has a small kitchen but puts out a wonderful but limited menu! Our party ordered crab cakes, halibut and salmon. The dishes are divine and beautifully presented. The wine list is decent. Our server, Jamie, was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.... More

The meal was incredible from start to finish. I started with a Cosmopolitan cocktail, which was beautifully served. The rim of the glass was frosted and the cocktail had a lovely pink color and refreshing taste. I had the small pear salad - nothing wrong with it but I wish the dressing had more flavor and that there were more... More

Reservations are definitely recommended as this is not a large place. I had the pear salad and my husband had the seafood bisque. Both were very good. We both had shrimp rotini with mushrooms and broccoli in a light parmesan cream sauce. Also very good.

If you are in Sunriver and want fine dining, this is your place. I had the halibut and it was fresh and delicious. The salads were excellent and children's menu was really nice (salmon, pasta, and others...not chicken nuggets and PB&J). I almost didn't go because of more recent so-so reviews, but am glad we went. It was an excellent... More
