The mussels were fantastic. The ambiance was different but fun. Waitresses were very pleasant and efficient.

I would be a regular, but they don't take the travelers credit card, American Express. Unfortunately, as a heavy traveler it's the only card I'll use.

We absolutely loved Bandaloop - local, original and completely delicious. In a town that is full of touristy places, Bandaloop is a breath of fresh air. Atmosphere is cool and lively, but still romantic. Make a reservation!

Overpriced and over-hyped. We aren't food snobs, but most of our party of 5 were disappointed. I had a beet and goat cheese salad that was ok, I also had goat sliders that were sad. They consisted of goat meat balls (each about the size of a common Swedish meatball) cut in half with some greens in between then tothpicked... More

We love the menu and the vibe. We are excited that they will finally be open again after closed for so many winter months.

As a traveling vegan, food can be tough sometimes. I had no problems here at all. My husband and I both enjoyed our food (it was very good!), and the prices were reasonable.

Bandaloop is one of our go to places in town whenever we head out. You have to try the soup. It is new each night and have never been dissapointed.

consistently good. Great atmosphere. Fresh creative menu that changes with the season. Popular bar is a great place to have a drink while you wait for your table because this place is always crowded. Right in the heart of doc square it may be a little hard to find but it's well worth it.

We walked by so many times over the years but never went in. This time we wanted a break from our 'Kennebunkport routine' and as most of our regular restaurants were closed we decided to try Bandaloop. What a pleasant surprise. Nice set up divided in two different dinning areas. We enjoyed the second room, few customers that night, large... More

we loved this place filled with friendly locals and delicious food -- we had a spinach salad with warm vegetables and specialty tacos. They have a good selection of locally crafted beer and wine. Informal friendly and warm place is a great place to be on a cold damp night
