My husband and I completed our walk from Barnacle Billy along the coast towards the town. We decided to eat here after completing our lovely walk. We were a little tired of seafood every day so he ordered steak tacos while I ordered shrimp tacos. We both enjoyed our meals. The staff was very friendly. We are sad to learn... More

The restaurant was empty at prime lunch time which should have tipped us off but we had been before and it was pretty good. No one even greeted us. A girl who was outside smoking and on her phone finally came in and sat us at a dirty table. Waitress came over and gave us warm tap water in plastic... More

For a change of pace during our stay in Ogunquit, one evening we were looking for something other than seafood. We chose this restaurant as it had decent reviews and it was within an easy walk from our hotel...next door! The venue is a quaint converted older house. There was indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor area also included a... More

We visited Bandito's as a group of 6 family members, 4 adults and 2 kids. We were seated right away which was surprising since it was a Saturday evening. The waitress was very attentive and checked with us throughout the meal, a nice touch. As it turned out, they were closing for the season the following day so they were... More

Bartender and server stared at us when we first arrived. Wife had to ask if we were gonna be seated. Meal was actually pretty good but server kept walking by when I wanted a refill of unsweetened tea. Finally owner came up and asked if I needed more drink and came back to tell me there was no more tea... More

Friendly staff, a nice menu, a decent margarita, outdoor seating with a fire pit, quick service by a very friendly waitress, cool and funky decor and ambience. Nothing to complain about, even the prices were quite reasonable for a tourist town restaurant!!

Great for stopping on the way back from the beach. Also good for a casual, inexpensive dinner. Food is good. It's fun to sit outside and watch the crowds walk by.

Well, we enjoyed the decor and the waiter. Oh, and my Margarita... I enjoyed that. It was what initially drew me in from the hot summer streets, a couple of ladies enjoying large drinks in the outdoor seating area. Our waiter was very welcoming, kind and attentive. The food is bad. We opted for traditional tacos. The corn tortillas seemed... More

There had been a storm that came through Ogunquit earlier in the day that knocked power out to the area. Many locations were still without power 5 hours later. My wife and I were extremely in need of an adult beverage and tried Banditos. We sat at the small bar and watched a young woman handle the bar, taking orders... More

We went here for lunch and the place was almost empty. Still had to wait for the hostess to finish her cigarette before we could be seated. My friend ordered a quesadilla, which was basically a lump of cheese on a soggy tortilla and I ordered the taco salad, which arrived in a stale taco shell. We understand that mistakes... More
