Although sometimes the prevalence of romesco can make everything have the same flavor, my latest dining experience at this cute and entertaining jewel box of a restaurant was exemplary. Everything had a distinct flavor profile -- salmon with grilled asparagus and tzadiki (salmon cooked so perfectly I nearly cried), cauliflower tagine with chimichurri (no romesco this time, thank goodness), caramelized fennel with feta (omg, so good), shrimp fritters with panzanera and tartar sauce (wow, just wow). That was one good dinner!
It was awesome and the creative use of plantain as sandwhich was a killer
We split the seven tapas dinner and every one was great as was the wine and dessert. They should also serve the tapas for lunch.
One of our favorite downtown eateries. Great menu, friendly staff, fun atmosphere!
My husband and I met a couple at Barrio for dinner, as they are heading off to Spain soon. It was such a fun night and reminded us of noisy, busy bistros in Barcelona. The food was delicious; such an interesting and tasty combination of flavors. We each ordered different tapas and shared. Our waiter was delightful and contributed greatly to make it festive. The Spanish wine I had was to die for and I put it on my list as a keeper. Overall, an A+ experience which we will repeat soon.
Planned to visit Bend for NYE and looked this restaurant up about a week in advance. Made reservations and showed up for a wonderful meal. The food was great and out server really helped us make the best choices; he was also really upbeat and entertaining. We had the paella mixta, a bunch of great tapas, and a pitcher of sangria. Will definitely recommend this to anyone making their way through Bend.
We planned our anniversary dinner here- no regrets! The service was friendly, warm and professional. Bartender took great pride in creating our drinks, our food delivery timing was perfect and we can't wait to return!
Nice little "local joint" with creative tapas dishes.
We always dine at Barrio when we are at our condo in Bend. His tapas are so ingenious, lots of flavorful ingredients put together with an eclectic touch. We check out the specials board first; yummy. The drink list is great too, especially the mojito which has a little kick to it, and the Tamarind whiskey sour is lots of fun. Your wallet won't be empty either; the prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of the food. Try to save room for dessert; we usually take ours with us. Don't forget to make a reservation, or be prepared to wait.
Chris was our waiter and he was incredible. Everything was timely, not rushed. He was happy, pleasant, knowledgeable, enjoyed people and his job... I give him a top, top rating and the paella, pork and brussel sprouts were delightful..... loved it all.
