Great food, but huge portions. Coconut shrimp was good but the sauce was yowzer with a bite. Romantic dining and great friendly service. Location was in the middle of all the shoppes. Loved it!

Was in Bar Harbor off of a cruise ship. After being let off from a tour we were on, we knew we were going to eat lobster and this was one of the places the tour guide recommended. Testa's is an easy walk from the cruise ship piers. Four of us dined and all got the lobster dinner for around... More

Spending the day in beautiful Bar Harbor off our cruise ship ... it was cold and crisp and after walking the town, we decided to stay on land for a bite to eat. We were warmly welcomed and offered seating upstairs, which we declined (although thinking back, probably should have accepted for the view!) .. so we sat at a... More

After our tour of Acadia National Park we decided to eat at Testa's as we had a discount coupon for the restaurant. It was a cold, windy day and we all ordered the crab soup. The soup was excellent but service was a little slow. Our cruise ship was in port that day, so they were very busy.

Testa's is a great restaurant that has been operating in Bar Harbor since the 1930s. The service was wonderful. My husband and I both had boiled lobster, and it was so delicious. Great restaurant!

Lots of great stuff on the diverse (and, in my opinion, poorly laid-out) menu, I wasn't sure what to have until I noticed lobster stew. The description was a 1-1/4 lb lobster in cream sauce. I was bit disappointed, though: I find it hard to believe there was a whole lobster in that small dish, and I guess I thought... More

We enjoyed Testa's, sat upstairs for dinner and had a great view of the bay. The pasta dish was excellent, the early bird lobster bake was very good. We also ate breakfast here one day, sat in a booth downstairs and had an enjoyable meal with a great server. Testa's is a pleasant atmosphere, with good food, and good service.... More

This was in a very convenient location from where our Ship was docked. We stopped to pick up our bus tour tickets early and we came back afterwards for the early bird special. I enjoyed a bowl of chowder, whole lobster and blueberry pie. The girls had told us earlier that the pies were made fresh every day by the... More

We loved everything about our meal at Testa's. We arrived early enough to order the Early Bird special, which this time of year runs until 6:30. My meal included chowder, rolls, a boiled lobster, a side dish (I had carrots), and blueberry pie a la mode. I cannot rave enough about how delicious everything was. And I mean EVERYTHING. The...

One of the Bar Harbor merchants recommended this place for lunch. It was busy, but we were seated immediately upstairs with a view of the harbor. I ordered the lobster wrap, another take on the lobster roll. Service was good and it was a nice casual place to relax after hours of walking and shopping.
