The tiny town of Kittery, just off I-95, has a cute 2-block downtown, with this great restaurant for dinner! Food and service were both terrific, even worth a detour!

The appetizers are inventive and great tasting and stand above the main entrees which are very good in their own right. Our waitress, Brooke, was accommodating and moved us to the lounge area upon our request and Cliff, the bartender, finished the service.

Underwhelmed, and we did take a 50 mile detour from Portland to try it on the basis of a local press review. Sadly, I must report that each dish, although meant well, was dull. When we go out to eat we each love to share each other's dish: in this case we did so to confirm our negative experience. Among... More

We came to celebrate a birthday. The staff was friendly and the food was fantastic. Some great appetizers such as fried olives. The atmosphere is fine dining with table linens. Great gen to celebrate a special occasion. Went on a Saturday evening and there was free valet parking.

Anneke Jans is a surprise find in downtown Kittery. Located in a rustic old building in that town's Wallingsford Square. Anneke Jans has a quiet sophistication that is set in a cozy, warm atmosphere. My girlfriend and I were seated at a corner table looking out on the square where were promptly attended to by our pleasant server. I started... More

We haven't been to this restaurant for a couple of years. Service was great. The flank steak was tough, the pasta a bit over spiced, but the vegetables and dessert were great. Wear warm clothes because every time the door opens you get a breeze. Bread from Beach Pea was fab! Locally sourced coffee.

I love this place. Arrive early to have a specialty cocktail at the bar. The food will be delicious, and you'll feel as if you could be miles down 95 in one of our big city neighbors. But...the friendliness, moderate prices and easy parking around the corner will remind you that you are only in Kittery. Highly recommended.

Pretty small place. Had reservations and were seated promptly. Unfortunately we were seated right inside the front door on a very cold evening so were hit with a blast of cold air every time the door opened. Our table for 4 was very small and so close to the table behind us, our chairs touched and the gentleman behind us... More

I've been here a few times. It's elegant, with innovative dishes and excellent service. Love the bread, too. Expensive, but worth it. It's also nice for special occasions or date nights.
