The Loft Restaurant & Bar
The Loft Restaurant & Bar Review
The owners of this one-of-a-kind eatery in Bandon's Old Town like to call it "casual fine dining," a perfectly apt description of the chef's innovative, modern spin on French basics. On the second floor of an old Port of Bandon property, The Loft's vaulted wood-trimmed ceilings, three-sided view of the Coquille River, and classic wooden tables are all ingredients for a pleasant ambience. But it's the food that makes this restaurant truly memorable. There are no accidental sides dishes here, no multiple choice between potatoes and rice pilaf. Every dish on the menu is as intentional as the next, prepared with thoughtful sauces, delicate chopping, and artful presentation, often combining unexpected flavors into single servings with fantastic results. Most ingredients are organic and locally sourced. Daring diners will be mightily rewarded by the roasted butterfish and served over spinach salad with porcini sauce and sesame scallion butter.
