Description: Tucked away on Cross Street in a re purposed old barn, in the heart of Kennebunkport, is where you will find Bandaloop's bright red doors beckoning you in. A warm, inviting, comfortable atmosphere with eclectic art and good music will complement your organic, fresh, and tasty dining experience. No pretense, just simple, friendly, and delicious!

This restaurant is near perfection. The service is like a well oiled machine. The food comes out promptly and the staff is very attentive.

The food is exquisite. Too many restaurants offer bland food loaded with salt or butter. The chef(s) here actually know how to use spices and ingredients to create dishes with sophisticated flavor profiles. The food is delicious.

The ambiance and decor are great as well.

One of th best restaurants we have ever been to. We just wish it wasn't an hour and a half away from home.

Looking for a local place for dinner, a little difficult to find as it is on an alley. Large dinning area, good food and nice waitstaff. The seafood was freshly caught and prepared perfectly.

Consistently one of best restaurants in the Port. The chef is the owner and it shows. They feature local produce and specials reflect what is in season. A varied menu--mussels are the best in area. Just go. Casual and friendly staff (Casey).

We've been to Bandaloop several times and its always one of the highlights of our summer dining out experiences. The food is innovative, fresh and eclectic. The weight staff is attentive but not intrusive and the décor and settings is somewhere between shabby sheik and hipster-paradise. The drink specials are interesting and many are old classics with a bit of a twist. Definitely worth a try if you are open minded.
I don't think we've had a bad entrée in all the years we've been going so you really can't go wrong. If you're not a local and you're renting or staying for a week be sure to book your table BEFORE you get to the area. Sometimes its hard to get a table during peak season and peak hours.

The food was very good. I had the kale salad then Macaroni and Cheese. I had the small portion and could not finish it. Because we were on vacation I could not take it with me but wish I could have.
