Of the restaurants we visited in the Deer Isle area, El El Frijoles was one of our favorites. Housed in a converted barn, this is more of a take out establishment as there are only nine seats inside and a separate screened dining area outside as well as picnic tables. You order your food at the counter and pick it... More

This is a seasonal stand with a following. Great meal, long lines were worth the wait. The food was fresh, unique and very tasty. The servers were friendly and helpful.

Farm fresh fruits and veggies in the salsa, salads, horchatas, and lobster and crab tacos worth taking the day off vegetarianism for. It's not fancy, it's just really, really good. And the people are really, really nice and totally dedicated to making amazing food. This is my favorite restaurant in Maine. Eat here.

Good food and great ambience. Picnic tables and BYOB. Sandbox and swingset for the kids. This place doesn't pretend to be anything but a place that offers great food. A great place!

We go to Deer Island often and part of the reason is because of this place. The food is amazingly fresh, they use responsibly sourced ingredients and well the people are just so darned nice! Spicy lobster tacos in homemade corn tortillas yum!!! Thanks for doing what you guys do!

We are so lucky to have this amazing Mexican restaurant right around the corner from us run by a wonderful couple who make everything from scratch. Fresh & locally purchased products used which one knows with every bite.

We loved this name and saw the high reviews on yelp and trip advisor. It lived up to the hype! I think my favorite part was the atmosphere, it's super colorful, lots of gardens with their own veggies, and a great lean to for eating under with light strings. The service was also incredibly friendly (you order at a counter).... More

I bought my first Agua Fresca at an El El Frijole's farmers market a few summers ago and have yet to get enough of their fresh fruit taste! The people who own this restaurant are the kindest; they are so passionate about their job and it shows in their product. The vegetable of the day always makes for a delicious... More

What a great place! We stopped in by chance and found a gem. Super friendly owners and delicious homemade food. All 3 of us decided to try the spicy lobster tacos - yum! And gluten free on top of handmade. We ate outside under the sunny sky. Very family friendly and welcoming. Will bring our guests this summer for sure!!!

One weekend a month during the winter, Michelle prepares a five course, fixed price dinner for 12, usually Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The food is always interesting and excellent, and the conversation around a communal table with regulars and newcomers worth the trip. The most recent dinner was outstanding, topped off by a panna cotta to die for. Get in... More
