Bend and Sun River recommendations?

Last year we had a great dinner and lunch at Merenda in Bend and I was wondering if the food was still as terrific?

Also, any Sun River restaurant recommendations for dinner.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. Haven't been to Merenda lately, sorry.

    Also don't get down to Sunriver, but the Cafe Sintra there is the same ownership as Cafe Sintra in Bend - which we recommend.

    1. I am a Realtor in Sunriver - my favorite spots are; The Meadows at the Lodge for Brunch, Lunch or wonderful dining. Bellataza is right by our office for a great coffee - This is where Sunriver Coffee is now at - Stewart still is in charge and things are as tastey as ever. The Village Bar and grill is under new management and is ok but not nearly as good as when Marcus Schwing had it. Blondies is the perfect pizza and sandwhich place. Freel free to ask me for any other info for your trip to our beautiful area.

      1. Try the Blacksmith, Ariana's or Stacatto for excellent Italian in Bend. Merenda is fine but try someplace different this trip. In Sunriver check out the Trout House, right on the river and now owned by the same folks who own the restaurant in Camp Sherman.
