The news that Sunriver’s Trout House restaurant—a charming little restaurant next to the Marina out at Sunriver Resort—was closing was embedded in Friday’s “Small Bites” section of the Bulletin’s restaurant review and nearly missed:
Hola!, a popular Mexican-Peruvian restaurant with two Bend stores, will open a third location in Sunriver in March. Owner and executive chef Marcos Rodriguez said the new restaurant will replace the Trout House, which is closing. Existing restaurants, open every day for lunch and dinner, are next to the Regal cinemas in the The Old Mill District (541-647-2711) and in the Forum Shopping Center on Bend’s east side (541-389-4652); www.holabend.com.
Nothing against Hola, which is a great restaurant, but I liked the Trout House: it had an almost secretive, off-the-beaten-path feel to it.
