“Looking for a great lunch in Gold beach area-this is it!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

In what looked like a food desert town, we uncovered this gem. Great fresh, local organic salads, grass fed beef and lamb, hand cut fries and interesting local brew. Highly recommended!

“No Reason to Go Elsewhere”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Barnacle Bistro is a gem with superior food and service. Owner/chef, Evan, makes a memorable home-made curry and cider mussel appetizer. It was so good that I had it for an entree on our first visit and we returned the next night so that my husband could have it. I had repeated his crab cake/green salad entree and found it delicious. On our 3rd visit, I had smoked salmon ravioli and my husband enjoyed fish and chips. The food is fresh, local, and well prepared by either Evan or Ernie. We were in Gold Beach for 3 nights and feasted at the Barnacle Bistro on each night. There was no need to try any other restaurant with such great food at reasonable prices!

“Yummy food!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This place was a GREAT find! The food is fresh was fresh and tasty! My daughter had the fish & chips, perfectly done and I will say the cooks french fries were the best I've ever had! You might think that a strange thing to say, but these fries were heavenly! perfectly moist potatoey on the inside and awesomely crisp on the outside. I didn't think there could be such a thing as a perfect fry until I had these, I mean they're french fries, right? Wrong! Try them! I had a crab melt sandwich that tasted awesome as well. Even the coleslaw was good! Great place for good organic food, dare I say the best at Gold Beach? Definitely of the places I tried.

“Will come back again.”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

This was my first time at Barnacle Bistro and it was amazing. There were two other couples in the restaurant and we were all raving about the food. My boyfriend had the fish and chips, (actually he had the sweet potato fries) and he said it was great. You could see that the fish was cooked perfectly and I tried his sweet potato fries and they were amazing. I had the turkey, Havarti, and cranberry relish pannini. So many amazing tastes in each bite. The garlic fries were sooooo good. I don't think they were too strong. We had a great experience and the owners were really nice.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We are staying in Gold Beach and found a great little restaurant with reasonable prices. The clam chowder was very good, although they also had beer and cheese soup the cook said is his favorite. The fish and chips, with choices of fries, was fresh hand battered cod was wonderful. I would recommend this little find to anyone looking for a good food find.
