My husband and I were visiting friends in Eliot Maine and wanted to take our Host and Hostess out for dinner so they picked one of their favorites. This restaurant is now one of my favorites. What a wonderful meal and overall experience. Our server was great, food exceptional and we loved it all. Can't wait to go back next... More

I feel like I'm in NYC whenever we go to Anneka Jans. The atmosphere is somewhat sophisticated but also casual. Its like a neighborhoods restaurant that is the best in the neighborhood and people from all over are coming to eat here and with good reason.. The food is outstanding. It seems that whatever we order it is the best... More

Maybe because it was a Sunday. maybe because the kitchen was having a bad day, but the food was really poor. The appetizers were overcooked and dried out; a warning we didn't heed. The duck entree was partially cooked and bland, devoid of sauce and taste. The once exquisite mussels entree of white wine, saffron, pancetta, and blue cheese finished... More

Was not disappointed: food was good, but it does not stand out in my standard. Service was proper. Reservation worked fine.

My husband courted me on six continents and then we bought a home in Kittery Maine and found Anneke Jans. So glad to have a place like this in our home town.....we enjoy seeking out good restaurants when we travel, and as the title says, this place makes the grade and more. We don't feel like we need to go... More

We went to Anneka Jans for a special anniversary dinner two years ago. The meal is still memorable and we look forward to returning there when we are in the area again. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. It was expensive, but worth the money. Hint: make a reservation - we did are were glad we had. This... More

Situated on a charming New England square, this beautiful, upscale restaurant has an open kitchen concept. But the kitchen counter is so high, all we see are the heads of the chefs, sometimes seated, looking out at the customers. When the chefs are at work, they are visible only from mid-arm, up; so we don’t really see them preparing the... More

This place has been on my list to try for a couple years. Finally made it last night. What a great place in a very cute little area of town. Nice bar, very friendly staff, outstanding food. The bread, arugula salad, asparagus soup, salmon and hake were all fantastic – as well as perfectly portion and beautifully presented. Big fans.... More
