Phenomenal veggies! Everything made very naturally. Their version of mac n cheese was one to write home about.

It was going to be my first July 4th in USA and so we booked a restaurant ahead just to be sure. A really good choice. Loved the food (I am a vegetarian and I had choices!). Meat / fish eaters were in their element. Everyone enjoyed the cocktails, the service and the tantalizing food. Finished with great espressos!

First, it's a hard place to find, but once found, you will be pleased. The Chicken and Peanut sauce is by far my favorite, but the steak and pesto will keep you happy... Oh so much good food! I am a local and have eaten as most places in the area. I continue to return to Bandaloop for the quality... More

We were pointed to this restaurant by a "local" and were certainly not disappointed. Pleasant live background music added to the informal atmosphere. We took the "specials", a.o. Halibut and the quality was just perfect and the presentation of a high level.

Ordered the halibut and tuna as well as steamed mussels. Everything was fabulous! We also appreciate that this restaurant is dedicated to buying local and organic foods whenever possible. Amazing food and service!

We had a wonderful meal at Bandaloop. The Hallibut was outstanding with the blueberry BBQ sauce. The perfect balance of sweet and spicy on perfectly cooked fish. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a wonderful dinner last year, and looked forward to returning this year. Perhaps it was an off night, but both the food and the energy level were way off. Even though it was a Saturday night on 4th of July weekend, the restaurant was very quiet. Wilted spinach salad was OK, but far too large for an appetizer.... More

I'm so sorry you were disappointed with your dinner on Saturday. If you made your server aware of your dislike at the time, we could have prepared something else for you. We know the spinach salad is large, that's why so many people like it. It can work as a meal and works as an appetizer for many people. It's... More

This was our first stop on our Maine vacation. We had the wilted salad and "egg rolls" for appetizers. Both very good. My husband had the seafood special for the day. I had the "Mac-n-cheese"... I'm still dreaming of that dish! The Vermont cheddar and sundried tomatoes were fabulous. They only suggestion I would make is to add more veggies.... More

We trusted the reviews and they were right on the mark. Amazing food and great service. We decided to sit at the bar and had a delightful conversation with the bartender who gave great advice on the food as well as the local area.

This is a small restaurant with great food and service. My wife had the kale salad and halibut. I had the wilted spinach salad and salmon. Both were excellent. We highly recommend.
