Enjoyed a fine dinner at Paula's. We ordered the Scallop Pasta Carbonara and the Salmon special. Soup and salad were good, but the bread was amazing. One bite of the bread and you thought you were in Paris. Dinners were excellent. Service was good, enjoyed chatting with the owners.

I've been here a couple of times now and the food has always been delicious!!! Everthing that I've ordered has been wonderful. The bar area on Friday & Saturday nights is the place to be for meeting the locals....

Ok enough place in a delightful little town by the ocean. Small rather dark dining room next to a more spacious bar area. Waiter got wine order wrong and implied that my wife had ordered the wrong type. Wine was exchanged, but without good grace. Soup course arrived which was very good quality, as was the small plate of salad leaves to follow. But main course meat was fatty and did not arrive with requested type of vegetables. Mains were bizarrely left on adjoining table while we finished starters. Owners give a take it or leave it impression, barely interacting with us (we were merely passing thru town, so why make the effort...?) We don't recognise the rave reviews this place got. Comparing it to the best Parisian eateries is absurd.

We enjoyed our meal here. The staff was warm and very helpful. The quality of the food was very good. It was fun to speak French and chat with some of the interesting visitors at the bar after dinner. It all made for a pleasant evening and I would go back to eat here again.

I'm writing still in the afterglow of our cozy, delicious dinner at Paula's Bistro. Port Orford is a very quiet little town on the Oregon coast, and Paula's is a welcome local culinary treasure. The French/local food is cooked with love! Paula's personal warmth infuses every dish from the crusty home made bread served with herbed garlic butter to the nasturtium- garnished fresh local greens salad, to the rich, beautifully seasoned main courses. My husband couldn't rave enough about the shrimp Provencal, and my cassoulet was perfect on a chilly fall night on the rugged Oregon coast.
A local musician serenaded us, and Paula is an attentive and welcoming chef and host. If you're in Port Orford, this is a culinary highlight.
