We've eaten at Bandaloop each of our last three trips to Kennebunkport. The menu is delightfully unique -- lots of alternative healthy choices, as well as lovely fresh fish and meat. My only quibble is that the portions are so huge that I can never save room for the scrumptious-looking desserts. Pace yourself better than I'm able, for an excellent... More

We live in Maryland, but were vacationing in Kennebunkport. Our daughter, who lives in Portland, was having her birthday, so we invited her boyfriend and her to join us. We were cordially greeted and seated. After getting our drinks order, the boyfriend and I shared the Egg Rolls, which are nothing like the conventional ones you get in a Chinese... More

We've been going to KPT for 13 years but only discovered Bandaloop 3 years ago. Boy, we didn't know what we were missing! Definitely worth checking it out. Nice little bar and excellent food. Very unpretentious. We'll be back there in 2 weeks for another week in gorgeous KPT and will definitely go back.

Wow, I was taken to Bandaloop by a friend and although it was full we were able to be squeezed in in only about 10 minutes... the service was friendly and quick which was awesome! and I loved the decor... but the food was fantastic on the whole I had the chicken with goat cheese and some sort of sauce...

Visited last year for the first time and really enjoyed it. Returned this year and were made to feel very much second-class due to the presence of our one-year-old. We understand if restaurants don't wish to have children but just say so - they were still more than happy to take our money for dry tasteless chicken, indifferent and rushed... More

So sorry you did not enjoy your experience at Bandaloop. I am surprised to hear you did not feel welcome with your child. We get many children at Bandaloop, many of us have children, and All of us love and welcome little kids. If you have a complaint about a particular employee the most productive thing to do would be... More

Our food and service were above average, but the decor reminded me of a 60's counter culture restaurant. There is no view and being located in such a picturesque town, you should see something. I giving four stars, but 3 1/2 is more realistic. Probably would not return

Between the four of us, we sample quite a few things they were all delicious. The restaurant has atmosphere and everything is freshly made and with originality. Try the kale salad. Different and so fresh.

Ate at this restaurant last night. Wife had scollops and I had halibut . Both were excellent . The atmosphere reminds me more of a older barn restaurant since it doesn't have a view but does have a lot of charm. Nice bar which was packed and there was a mix of families and singles. Will go again next time... More

Once you find the place - fantastic. Fresh, organic, beautifully prepared menu - special dietary requirements dealt with without any fuss whatsoever. Punctual and friendly service, relaxing and fun atmosphere. So good we went twice!

A reservation had been made for us by Kennebunkport regulars and I read the reviews before we went; and yes, it was as good as the reviews made out! I had without question the best yellowfin tuna steak ever and my watermelon bisque with coconut milk starter was delicious as was the vegan carrot cake with lime frosting for dessert.... More
