Something for everyone

We have 3 adult children: a vegan, a vegetarian and an omnivore. Where to go when everyone visits? There's only one really good fit in Dock Square and that is Bandaloop. The staff seems very well educated on the ingredients of all menu items which makes our vegan and vegetarian feel welcomed... read more

My boyfriend and I went out on a mid-week date to Bandaloop. We are both local and have not been to Bandaloop for a while due to our busy schedules. Our evening was so nice, relaxing, and fabulous! We loved to avocado mashed, as both of us are big avocado fans! The scallops were cooked perfectly and constructed in a... More

We were in Kennebunkport for 5 days, this was far and away our best meal. The restaurant is a mix of casual and upscale. Decided to share 2 appetizers and an entree. The spring rolls with goat cheese and walnuts (yes) were outstanding: a take on a quesadilla with sharp Vermont cheddar and delicious salsa. Perfectly-cooked haddock,grilled with peaches and...

Not a place for a Mademoiselle to dine alone, even if you are seated at the bar, which was my experience. The food was outstanding for someone with a gluten-free, dairy free dietary restriction! Truly, outstanding, filling, and very satisfying for a very reasonable price! However, the service was not quite up to snuff. Every time I left my seat... More

Another great meal here at Bandaloop. We have been coming every summer for years and it remains consistently wonderful, while many of the other places in K'port experience ups and downs. What I like best about Bandaloop is the interesting and different menu. It is not another tourist trap with the same fish dish you can get 11 other places... More

We both enjoyed our meal and they had generous portions. Great atmosphere and service. A short walk from downtown.

I've been here many times but found new standouts tonight. 1) creme caramel was amazing. 2) goat "burgers" delicious. 3) peach margarita YUM. 4) they lowered the vinegar content in the wilted salad which made it better. Again YUM. Very satisfied with quality, flavor and service

Whenever my wife and I visit Kennebunkport, we usually make it a point to have dinner at Bandaloop at least one night. They have an eclectic menu with excellent cocktails and good value. I highly recommend the mussels as an appetizer for a group or a meal for yourself.

Laid back and relaxed. I had the tuna crudo appetizer and then the rib eye and the house cab sav. Tuna was great. The steak was perfectly cooked. Nice cocktail menu as well. Good service. Relaxed and romantic evening.

This was our 5th visit to Bandaloops and the food is always fresh, unique and delicious. This time we visited as part of the progressive dinner trolley and we chose this particular date because we knew Bandaloops was on the list of restaurants. So Good!
