We were staying in the motel which shares the restaurant parking lot and, since the motel was just okay, we didn't have our hopes up. Boy, were we surprised! Excellent food. White tablecloths indicated an upscale setting, but despite our casual dress we were made to feel comfortable, and quickly realized we weren't alone. Two fabulous meals: crab cakes and... More

We selected this restaurant because of the reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is great with quiet tables, low background music, and attentive but discreet waiter. The food was quality and cooked as ordered. The prices may be a little high but locally competitive. We had halibut fish and chips and a sirloin steak followed by... More

This was recommended by our hotel. It was 'fancier' than we expected when we walked in though the food and service did not disappoint, We had 2 fish dishes which were excellent and included vegetables and a starch. The owner engaged us and made sure everything was fine.

Recommended by locals, it was also convenient to our hotel. It was a Thursday night, and we were seated immediately. I was slightly concerned about ordering the abalone since I was in the middle of Oregon. My husband ordered the lamb. Both meals were so delicious, cooked perfectly, accompanied by beautifully prepared mashed potatoes and veges. This restaurant deserves to... More

Kayo restaurant was recommended by our hotel the Three Sister Inn, and we were pleased with the choice. The service and food was great. Mr. Kayo stop at each table to discuss the menu and make recommendations or suggestions. I had the tuna and would have it again if future travel would bring us back to the area. This is... More

went in by myself on Saturday night. I was instantly greeted by the hostess and directed towards the lounge. My server showed me to a table and asked what I would like to drink. I was undecided but she patiently offered some suggestions and gave me the lineup of draft beers. I chose one, and she returned shortly with beer... More

My wife and I along with our two friends were recommended to Kayo's by a Bend, Oregon local. Overall, we were glad we went, but the quality of the entrees we ordered were mixed. Mr. Kayo himself comes out and stops at each table or both to discuss the menu with patrons. That was a nice touch. I thoroughly enjoyed... More

Nothing too special about the lounge area at the rear of the restaurant. The restaurant is apparently 5 star and very expensive, so we settled for the lounge. Dark and gloomy inside, almost a nightclub feel, we sat outside on the patio and was served by friendly enough waitress. Drinks were served quickly and meals were standard casual fare, probably...

Another enjoyable meal at Kayo's! We came here to celebrate our anniversary - we enjoyed primerib and lobster dinner and they were fabulous. The giant shrimp appetizer was so much fun to eat. The calamari was good but not great. The service is always very good. We think Kayo's is a hidden gem in Bend, just off third street away... More
