If you’re the type of traveler who wants to visit Sunriver, it’s likely that you also have an appreciation for the finer things in life. In particular, Sunriver’s fine dining culinary scene will tantalize your taste buds and leave you with lasting impressions of your food-lover’s journey. Read on below to find out more about the best restaurants in Sunriver Oregon.
South Bend Bistro
Nestled in the heart of Sunriver, South Bend Bistro offers an elegant array of New American fare for dining patrons to choose from. Begin your meal with appetizers like the sweet and savory prosciutto and melon, a decadent cut of pork belly, or succulent sea scallops. Enjoy a charcuterie board with lamb tongue, duck liver pate, fennel salami, and white truffle cheese. Pear and walnut salads, trivelli pasta with shrimp, duck breast, tuna nicoise, and even rabbit all grace this menu. Finish with a strawberry-rhubarb tartlet or crème brulee.
Carson’s American Kitchen
Located inside of the Sunriver Resort, Carson’s American Kitchen provides the unique experience of fine dining all day long—not just at the typical dinner hour. Here, you can sample buffalo carpaccio, duck nuggets, pan-seared rainbow trout or Muscovy duck breast, and prime-grade flat iron steak for dinner. If you visit during breakfast, there are house-made donuts, brioche French toast, and a variety of inventive takes on omelettes and eggs Benedict. Fish and chips, chili lime tacos, and salmon burgers can all be purchased on the lunch menu. Sunriver Oregon restaurants have it all!
In the nearby city of Bend, Ariana Restaurant awaits to tantalize your palate with inventive takes on classic dishes using exotic flavors and local ingredients. Enjoy appetizers like burrata, smoked salmon tartare, and bone marrow. Entrees include offerings or rabbit, lamb loin, filet mignon, wild Oregon salmon, rainbow trout, and scallops with an Oregon Dungeness crab risotto. Pair your meal with a cocktail or a glass of wine from their extensive drink menu, then top off your meal with one of their rich and seasonally-inspired desserts.
This Bend-based restaurant not only offers an unbelievable selection of high-quality beef, but also has the added benefit of including a kid’s menu (and a reasonably-priced one at that)—something you certainly won’t find at most fine dining restaurants. Beyond that, diners can sample the flavors of braised pork belly, ravioli Bolognese, bacon-wrapped scallops, ahi poke, fresh Hawaiian ahi, New England lobster, rack of lamb, blackened rib eye, and filet mignon.
Like the previous two restaurants, Bos Taurus is also located just a short drive from Sunriver in Bend. Unlike Ariana Restaurant and Brickhouse, Bos Taurus offers the rare and exotic wagyu beef, as well as a variety of other rare steak cuts sourced from ranches in nearby states. Besides steak, you’ll want to try the hamachi crudo, 24 hour pork cheeks (an unbelievably tender cut), squid ink garganelli, line-caught halibut, and lamb rack. Be sure to budget accordingly; this restaurant is one of the most expensive in the area.
Luxury Doesn’t End at the Exit from the Restaurant
We are taught to enjoy the finer things in life. Good wine, fancy jewelry, and haute cuisine—perhaps from one of these Sunriver, Oregon restaurants—are just a few of the items that are better when luxurious, but what about vacation homes? Gone are the days when we viewed vacation accommodations as nothing more than a place to rest our heads; today we want the best experience possible, and that includes luxury vacation rentals, such as 10 Tan Oak, a beautiful three-bedroom home.
Sunriver Pines is proud to offer properties that satisfy all demographics, and because we don’t believe in the theory of less is more, our luxury homes do more than satisfy! Cabins designed in a mid-century modern style offer vaulted ceilings covered in tongue and groove planks, spacious kitchens with granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and professional style appliances, and living areas that are light and bright. The kitchen is a great spot to whip up a homemade meal or reheat leftovers from one of the best restaurants in Sunriver, Oregon! Pull up a chair in front of the oversized windows that peek out into the lush and verdant landscape outside and take a moment to just breathe. Put down that book, turn off that state of the art television hanging over the stone fireplace, and notice the little details: a butterfly flitting from flower to flower in the spring, the vibrant colors of the changing leaves in the fall, and the quiet peace that takes over the landscape blanketed in white. These little luxuries don’t cost a thing, but they add to the more concrete ones you will find in our luxury abodes.
Multiple en suites offer the opportunity for more than one family to travel together and still maintain their separate spaces when necessary, and those spaces are designed to ensure each night’s sleep is better than the last. Soft beds, high thread count linens, and in some cases, private patios furnished simply to allow for morning viewings of the sun rising over the horizon add to the magic of this getaway. Many cabins come with game rooms; there are foosball tables in some, pool tables in others, and video game consoles in still others.
With access to hot tubs on private decks and community amenities like SHARC, the aquatics and recreation center, all the minutes of your rainy days and lazy days can still be filled with fun and frivolity when you choose one of our Sunriver Pines luxury vacation rentals for your Sunriver, Oregon luxury journey! Our attention to the finer details leaves nothing to chance. This getaway promises to be one you will dream about for years to come!
