This restaurant is very well located in the heart of Bar Harbor. The staff is great and the food is very good.

You must get the award winning crab soup. It was unbelievable! The waitress recommended the Haddock Almondine. I'm watching carbs, so the fact that you have a choice of potato or vegetable was appreciated. The children's menu portions were large enough for my hungry 10 and 8 year olds. The hot bread is amazing!

We dined at Testa's after the bus tour of Acadia. The seafood was great, and our waitress was friendly and attentive.

Stopped in for lunch.....had a BLT and a Crunchy Haddock Sandwich. Both did not disappoint. They do have outside eating but opted to eat inside. Waitstaff was very helpful and friendly. Great location right down town where all the excitement is happening.

We stopped here for lunch as a party of 6 on a day when they were not really busy. We ordered soups and main courses and then waited and waited and waited. When the food finally arrived we let the waitress know that we had not received our soups yet. She announced that she had the soups too along with... More

Located in the heart of the tourist area, Testa's is a good place to stop for lunch. The soup is home made and the burgers and sandwiches are fine. The have a full bar and beer on tap. I think it would be fine for dinner as well but haven't tried that.

On a recommendation, we decided to try Testa's. The restaurant is nicely decorated. However, considering the size of the Lobster roll, it was expensive!

We went here with friends who had been to the West Palm Beach counterpart and had a wonderful dinner..we had lobster (of course), which was big and meaty. Drinks were great. Fabulous view of the Harbor. Was really surprised to see how low this restaurant was in the TripAdvisor list of Bar Harbor restaurants. Certainly merits higher in our view.... More

We were looking for a bite to eat on our first night in Bar Harbor. We wanted something simple so we asked our waiter if the Ruben sandwich was good. He said that it was an excellent choice because they cook the corned beef at the restaurant. It was the best Ruben I had ever had! Staff was friendly and... More
