We were in town for some golf and decided to come here to celebrate a milestone birthday for a friend of mine. I was emailing with the owner back and forth for several weeks working out the details. She was very prompt and personable. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted with open arms and a big smile. It was like we had been coming there for years. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it was superb. The sauce was amazing the calamari had just enough batter on it but not too much. It was cooked perfectly. The group ordered the scallops and one of their pasta dishes with home made sauce. They were both delicious. The place is not very big so I suggest you make a reservation. The up side is that you get impeccable service and attention from the staff. If we come back to Bandon we will give it another round.

We had a fantastic meal with wines suggested by the host based on our preferences and our food selection. The menu is relatively small but the food is beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. My wife started with an excellent crab bisque and I had the tempura calamari with a light but spicy dipping source. We followed this scallops and bolognaise dishes, respectively. Both were wonderful matched with an Italian unoaked Chardonnay and a MarshAnne red (Red Planet 2009). Everything was excellent and so we returned the next night for a different selection and our experience though different was another example of this excellent food - to mention but two - a tomato pate and stuffed zucchini flowers. If you’re visiting Bandon book a table at Alloro - you won’t be disappointed.

What a special place! We've been lucky over the years to experience fine dining throughout the United States and beyond. Alloro ranks with the very best of them. It's a tiny place with only a few tables, but the entire experience is BIG. Much bigger than one would expect in a small town like Bandon. The environment is elegant. David, the owner, is personable and very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine selections. The waitress is exceptional--pleasant, attentive, a delight. And the chef will come out and ask you how you like your meal. When you eat here, these people make you feel special. They are attentive without being intrusive. But it's the food itself that is really special. I had mussels. Wonderful. My wife had scallops. Cooked to perfection throughout and presented beautifully. (Plus, they give you enough scallops to make a meal, unlike so many "fine" restaurants that offer three scallops on a small plate to make it look like a big serving.) My son and his wife thoroughly enjoyed their shrimp. What a wonderful meal and evening. Without any prior knowledge about Alloro, we selected it to celebrate my 75th birthday. The next time we are near Bandon, we will need no special event to justify a return. (If you can eat early, by the way, the happy hour discount on both bottles of wine and food is a super deal.)

This was a great little spot in the quaint old town of Bandon, Oregon. We are from Wyoming and we loved having the opportunity to chat with the owner. We loved that he came and asked about where we are from and where we are going. He also was very knowledgeable on the wines in the region. He loved giving us tastes of different wines and fun was absolutely delicious. We took our dessert to go and enjoyed it while walking around the old town. Cannot wait to come back one day!

I have often said that it is difficult – and sometimes unfair – to judge a restaurant by a single visit but on our first visit to Alloro Wine Bar in the old town area of Bandon, Oregon, they absolutely hit it out of the park.

My wife and I popped in about 5 o’clock one afternoon after a long day on the road, hungry for some quick sustenance, and their happy hour specials seemed just the thing to get us in the door. Happily, they had so much more to offer, and we must admit we indulged in a lot of it.

Sue, the chef/co-owner, told us they feature wines from a different country every month, and this month (June) was South Africa. A flight of four one-ounce pours ($10) introduced us to two very nice whites and two luscious reds from MAN Vintners, a dynamic young winery established in 2001 producing fruit forward, modern-style varietal wines from the Agter-Paarl region of South Africa. A Chenin Blanc, a white blend, a red blend and a Pinotage under the winery’s Tormentoso label set the tone for the evening.

As we had gone a long time since breakfast, we could not simply sip wine without something more substantial, so we chose the Hood Canal oysters from Washington state and what they called the antipasto appetizer, which we thought was best described as a charcuterie plate. In addition to crackers and lavosh wafers, it included two types of sausage, a tomato tapenade, deep-fried caper berries, pecorino and marinated feta cheeses, cured olives and seasoned, toasted cashews.

For our main course, we selected sea scallops served with fiddle head ferns, a spätzle in orange sauce, green pea puree, a couple of small, purple carrots and a wedge of potato. The scallops were prepared perfectly, and the accompaniments were equally delicious.

Not quite sated, we opted for a bit of savory dessert: a cheese plate accompanied by glasses of 10-year-old Tawny port. The plate included four artisan cheeses and flatbread.

Accompanying the delicious food was delightfully attentive service. Although Eva was our main server, staff members at Alloro take ownership over all their guests. Sue brought some of the dishes herself, the bartender brought others and ensured that our water glasses were full, and Eva checked back just often enough to ensure we had everything we needed without being overbearing. Having worked in the industry, I can attest: that’s often a tough balance to strike.

Had my wife had her way, we’d have stayed even longer than the nearly two hours we lingered, as local guitarist J. Michael Steele had begun serenading the guests with strains of the tunes we Boomers grew up with, including Jimmy Buffet’s immortal, “A Pirate Looks at 40.” As I was singing along and teasingly said he was going to go up and sing harmonies with him, Eva our server said that actually happened fairly often.

With soothing warm décor and white table cloths, this 45-seat restaurant is decidedly upmarket but far from stuffy. In fact, the menu offered more irresistible delights for tomorrow night: mussels for the appetizer and a duck breast entrée, not to mention ribeye. The wine list is extensive, as is the cocktails menu. Needless to say, we made reservations and will be returning during our second night in Bandon.
