What a joyful combination of excellent food, ambience, and views. Advanced reservations are highly recommended. Elegant table settings; plates are beautifully arranged/presented. If it were not for the service declining as the evening wore on, it would have been a perfect evening. We noticed this...More

We dined three times at the Cape Arundel Inn over the past year. Each-and-every-time, Chef Pierre created amazing, delicious food. We cannot say enough good things. And the service was delightful. Thank you for all of your efforts!

If you’ve ever dined on a luxury ocean liner, you know: Water all around piques your appetite, invites you to slow down and enthralls throughout a meal like no other show on earth. And if you haven’t, that experience awaits at the Cape Arundel Inn & Resort’s glass-walled, waterfront, fine dining restaurant: Ocean. Memorable evenings at Ocean begin with cocktails, like our Maine maple syrup-sweetened Amber Sky, on the inn’s relaxing front porch or at the bar. Continue your culinary journey in the dining room, where every table has a view of the frothy blue sea. Chef Pierre Gignac’s creative menus change with the seasons, showcasing not only Maine-caught seafood in signature dishes like Lobster Thermidor, but the best of what is grown, raised and produced locally. His eye-pleasing creations take inspiration, too, from across the Atlantic. Expect the familiar flavors of southern France and the Mediterranean with intriguing new twists, plus an international selection of wines.
