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.

My wife and I had dinner on a Sunday evening. It was in late June and not terribly busy. My wife had the spinach salad with chicken. She said the salad was good enough on its own and didn't require the chicken. I had the mac and cheese. Okay, its not as simple as it sounds and it is wonderful,... More

We care here for a celebratory meal and it was so very special and decadent. The chef was so ioncredibly accommodating of my numerous food allergies, and our server was so patient in helping me pick item that would be safe. My spouse commented on the salmon being the best ever, and I had chicken which was fresh and flavorful... More

Nestled just off the main road is a great restaurant in an old horse barn with two red doors. The staff is great fun and very nice. The food is fabulous. We shared the egg rolls and scallops. The portions are large and we thought sharing made sense for us. The egg rolls were outstanding with spinach, walnuts and blue... More

This place is awesome for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. All dishes can have the meat substituted for tofu or seitan!! So cool! And the food was delicious. I had seitan prepared as their steak dish. So it had mashed potatoes and veggies and a delicious red wine and mushroom sauce. YUM! Its so rare when I am traveling to... More

Beautiful, unique restaurant, with friendly staff and amazing food! Please do not miss the Gorgonzola egg rolls; one of the best things I have tried in a long time!
