Love the atmosphere

You can watch the chef prepare your meal, and admire the innovative decorations while you wait for your delicious food. This place is tucked away but worth seeking out in the Port.

Bandaloop has very fresh, wonderful food that is presented simply but attractively. The food is delicious and organic but when I went a few years ago, their portion size was on the small size and we felt we could have eaten more.

My parents live in the area, so it's always a treat to visit them and try all of the restaurants in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Bandaloop is definitely a favorite. The food is definitely amazing, and the staff is very attentive. This is one of our favorites in the area and I would definitely make a reservation (if possible) during some... More

I love farm-to-table restaurants, and considering that there's maybe two "upscale" restaurants in all of Kennenbunkport (say that fast three times), we gladly made a reservation. It's a bit hard to find as it's tucked away in the back, but you can either find it on Cross Lane, or if you walk up the stairs next to the olive oil... More

Stayed in Kennebunk for a knitting retreat in September. Since there were so many of us we split up into groups. I think we got the best choice. I started with the Butternut/Apple squash soup. It was amazing! Everyone enjoyed their meal, all ingredients were very fresh and will definitely return! Nice job Bandaloop!!

My wife and I went here based upon the recommendation of our B&B. What a great choice. A little hard to find but in the heart of Kennebunkport. Overall the restaurant is a little on the small size but they do maximize their space. We had a nice corner table as it was our anniversary. Our server was very attentive... More

Bandaloop is a restaurant well worth seeking out. Tucked away off of the main street in Kennebunkport, the restaurant serves locally sourced and creatively prepared food. Some of their selections are vegetarian, organic,or gluten-free. Our group tried a number of dishes and they were one tastier than the next. For starters, the egg rolls are outstanding. They are prepared with... More

We are ALWAYS happy with our meals at Bandaloop. (Inconsistency is a problem for me at other good restaurants - sometimes it's great, but sometimes not.) But Bandaloop never, ever disappoints. The chefs are extraordinary. Service is wonderful, too. We are always thrilled. I'd have to say it is my favorite restaurant in the Kennebunks. I know many people who... More

I've been by this place many times but never noticed it as it is located behind some other buildings. But so glad I found it! My daughter and I shared outstanding egg rolls for an app - not at all what we expected but so good. Her scallops were very tasty, as was my rib eye. Service was friendly in... More

Tuna was perfect. Place is very nice and cozy. Not too loud. Tried a new drink that was a cross between a bloody mary, a margarita and sangria. It was so good, my wife ordered one and I had two. Farm to table concept is spot on. Everything was great. Best dining experience we had in Kennebunkport.
