This restaurant was recommended so we reviewed the menu and wanted to try. It is a small restaurant so reservations are a must. We went at 6pm and were seated immediately on a Saturday night. We sat outside even though it was cool. I ordered the special Pan Seared Halibut and my husband had the beef tenderloin. We started with... More

South Bend Bistro serves some of the absolute best food in Central Oregon. Be sure to get reservations as this small bistro fills up fast

The menu is fresh and fantastic, cozy atmosphere, shouldn't pass up a chance to try it. And the owners are both Chef and Server, so you know they will make sure you are having a great time.

We wanted a nice evening out and South Bend Bistro delivered. The cocktails were great, tuna tar tar appetizer was outstanding; small pear salad and Caesar salad were each delightful; pan fried Halibut was perfectly cooked, and duck breast was melt-in-your-mouth sweetly satisfying. Deserts were delicious. We brought our own bottle of wine; corkage was $15 - a good value.... More

We had an excellent meal served by friendly, attentive staff in a charming atmosphere The South Bend Bistro is a nice change from the larger, more boisterous family fare places at Sunriver. Be sure to make a reservation the place is small.

We visited South Bend Bistro last night with friends to celebrate a couple of birthdays and they didn't disappoint. As always the food was wonderful. Two of us had the salmon fillets which were very moist and flavorful. I had the crab cakes which are always my favorite. Tasty and flakey. One of us had the tenderloin and he said... More

Excellent food, knowledgable staff and not much else was needed. We made reservations the night before, the restaurant wasn't full, but it's clear they limit the number of tables. The food well thought out, nicely executed and simply plated. The restaurant isn't fancy, the atmosphere and location aren't great, but who cares when the food fabulous. Our table had the... More

My experience here was absolutely wonderful. My server was so nice, so friendly. The atmosphere was so warm amd cozy with a view to the lit outdoor deck. Eventhough there was blizzard going on, I didn't care because everything, the environment and meal were top notch. Everything was bursting with flavor, so fresh, so delish. Upon arrival I told the...
