The best!

The food here is remarkable. Every dish could be called a delightful surprise. It is innovative food but not at all contrived. It was as delicious as can be and it felt like we had a healthy meal. In fact we are coming back in two days to eat here again! Ambiance and great people work here.

If I were to ever open a restaurant this is the kind of place I would aspire to. We started with their soup of the day a chilled sweet corn and lemongrass soup. It was the best chilled soup I have ever had in a restaurant! Next we split the kale salad with glazed pecans and a tahini-based dressing with... More

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. They even suggest substitutions that the chef would... 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...

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.
