This wonderful restaurant is about 1/2 hour north of Hanover, NH (Dartmouth College). The owner/chef is a genius. The last visit a couple of weeks ago I had the absolute best flounder I have ever tasted!!! Well, we always have a good meal and good service but this was exceptional. Highly recommended.

If you make it near Orford, you should do yourself a favor. Go here. My husband and I eat in many nice restaurants. This one has the freshest ingredients, the friendliest staff, unpretencious setting in the beautiful country side. We go every year, and are never disappointed.

This is a well known local restaurant that keeps us coming back. Chef/owner prides himself on farm-to-table freshness; the home-made mozarella, for example, was excellent. Make sure you get reservations as its small and ask to sit at the counter overlooking the kitchen for a treat, unless you want quiet conversation. In the fall, the adjacent farm is a great... More

The menu is always changing with innovative dishes based on what is available fresh and local. Chef Martin's food is among the best I've had anywhere in the world.

Ariana's is a bit out of the way in an old farmhouse/farm. Inside it is not the most charming, but the chef (Martin) and the food make up for that. The service and food were excellent! The chef has great sauces and the food preparation and presentation are spectacular. I had the lightly battered flounder with a wonderful dill/butter sauce.... More

We've never had anything less than 5 star meals and service! Ariana's location, off the beaten track in NH, together with the casual dining ambience is deceptive; the menu is varied with plate pairings that complement the most discerning palate, the meals are expertly prepared with locally grown foods and the team delivering superb service in a warm, friendly atmosphere...

We've been here many times and we've always had a great experience. The menu varies with what they have in their garden and what's available from the local farms. The chef, Martin, is excellent and friendly. The wait staff is very pleasant and fun. We plan to go back very soon.
