Wow! Great food. Perfectly prepared (had halibut) and their soup of the day which was a cold soup that was just wonderful. The place is a bit small and loud and not real easy to find.

My husband and I had dinner here yesterday evening and just loved the food. This particular restaurant doesn't have much in ambiance but the food is outstanding and very fresh. The chefs are right out front to watch at work and they are creative and interesting in their craft. I had salmon that was done to perfection with a side... More

Excellent food, great wine, and friendly staff on several occasions. We have been back three times over the years while visiting Kennebunkport and still love it. Family friendly, too, is a bonus!

The prices are normal for this town. Food was par but nothing that I would have to have again. Upscale and not good for kids. The staff was friendly and helpful. Didn't like how the chefs were yelling out the serves names when their food was up.

We loved the food at Bandaloop. Advertised as serving fresh, local food, you know they are telling the truth when you walk in and see someone shelling fresh peas!!!! The peas then appeared in the crabcakes which were the best we have ever had anywhere! The less spicy sauce was terrific with them. I had their seared scallops which were... More

Wow! What an amazing experience! Already love that this hotel uses fresh local organic ingredients but I was truly blown away by the incredible fusion of flavours in the delicious food!

During our 2-night stay in Kennebunkport we ate here both nights. Too good! There is a beautiful farm to table ethos and they really make use of local produce. I had a local goat cheese and strawberry plate that was magnificent. Also what was mind-blowing was the variety of vegetable side dishes. We eat a mostly plant-based diet so I'm... More
