On our way to Inn at Spanish Head in Lincoln City, Oregon, we stopped in Dundee for a small nosh. We knew we wanted to walk the beach after checking into the Inn so just wanted a small bite around 2pm.
Dundee Bistro is in a small strip of shops on the main road in Dundee. Although the weather was gorgeous, we were debating whether to be seated immediately on the patio or wait for an inside table. The reason we weren't sure about the outdoor seating is because the patio overlooks the parking lot. We were anxious to get to the beach so chose the outdoor seats.
We are so glad we sat outside. What a surprising view! We could hardly see the cars in the lot. Instead, the view is of bushes and a gorgeous Dundee hillside. It was so pleasant on the patio. We found out this patio is heated and open through harvest season so don't hesitate to sit here even if the weather is a little cooler than the day we went.
Service was quick and solicitous. We had water and bread immediately. The wine list is extensive as is appropriate in Wine Country, Oregon. I had a salad with house dressing, grapes and cracked pepper. My husband ordered flat bread with hummus, cucumbers, pickled peppers and curried prawns. He gave me the prawns to add to my salad. The food was delicious!
If I was staying locally, I definitely would have sampled the wine list. Because we were driving to Lincoln City, we were quickly on our way. The Dapper Frog, a gallery I have frequented in Portland has a small store next to the Bistro. Walk off your meal by going in and looking at the beautiful handcrafted items including glass work.
With the unexpected view, wine list, great food and service, I'll be back.
