Luckily we didn't have to wait long to get a table (outside) but we would wait the next time we go because we know how awesome it is!

Grilled green beans, don't think twice just order them! We also had the pork carnitas (recommended by our server) and the salsa + guacamole. All excellent! We finished with the churros, and you will most definitely want to leave room for these.

Our server was attentive and made great recommendations. He didn't try to sell us on anything we didn't want, which I always appreciate when I'm on vaca.

Barrio is a real find. It's small and they only reserve about half of the restaurant so there can be a bit of wait but it is definitely worth it. The food is just amazing - creative, fresh, delicious. We were so impressed with the menu, especially the number of vegetarian (or vegetable-heavy) options. The cocktails are fun and the sangria was surprisingly good (most places use the lowest grade wine but this was quite good).
We ate at the bar which was the right choice - Bend is such a friendly town that the people next to us (regulars) recommended all the right things: the tacos (especially the carnitas!; the fish ones aren't as good), the green beans (oh yum!) and a kind of lentil (?) cake with fresh shrimp on top and a fantastic salsa. So yummy! If we had found this place on the first night of our trip, we would not have eaten anywhere else. We'll be back for sure.

We've been stymied by the crowds since this opened (part of living in small city with limited good dining options and tons of tourists) but finally snuck in early recently. Don't know why it took us so long to pull this trick because we've been missing out. Small dining room and it's loud but in a good way. More than just about all of the other places in town Barrio would fit right in regardless of what large West Coast foodie city you put it in. And it would compete on food quality. While the menu offers entree size portions of many of the items this is really a tapas spot. As such we took advantage of their special--any seven tapas for $62. It was a steal of a deal. Three hungry mouths fed, with drinks, for under a $100. All seven dishes were great and unlike anything else you will find in Central Oregon. It isn't the latest, greatest tapas fresh from some chef's Barcelona sabbatical but we will be braving the crowds or sneaking in for a late lunch/early dinner from now on.

Went in on a weekend for lunch and were seated immediately. It is a small restaurant and can be loud at times. Service was fast and attentive. Food is appropriate portions and authentic. Was a nice change from the many American restaurants in Bend.
