“tapas bistro with great neighborhood ambience”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Visiting Bend, my boyfriend and I wandered into this place, and so grateful we did. Lively, busy atmosphere with people talking and laughing over food and drink. Daily specials written on a chalkboard in back near the kitchen. Canvas rice bags strung up in the window for decoration-somehow fun and not corny. Order the house paella and another entree to share, enjoy the food and conversation around you. Amazing whiskey sours.

“Great setting, great food, great location.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

It took us four attempts to finally get into Barrio, but once success was achieved (5:30 p.m. on a Saturday), we were not disappointed. We ate tapas style with four other friends and had a great big booth right in the front window. The chicken paella had the perfect amount of spice. The portion was huge! I ate the leftovers for two days following.

“Paella Baby!”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Barrio has a great menu full of tapas and different kinds of paella. The portions are large and the atmosphere is fun. This may not be the place to go to quietly sit and have a conversation. But if you are looking for a place to eat before a lively night out, go to Barrio.

“Welcom to Bend”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Paella in Bend? You bet your sweet bippie! It's not just here, its excellent. They also make a grilled Coho Salmon with a white balsamic type cream sorta sauce that will know you off your feet. Do not pass go, do not collect $200 but you definitely won't care once you have one of their melon martini's with a jalapeno punch to it. And yes, I did go there 2 nights in a row. Why? It's that good and cuz I can.
