This restaurant is located inside the historic hotel. We didn't have a meal but when for the popovers. They are a special treat and worth the drive. The place is located on the quiet side of the island and quite charming. The popovers were great and we went here instead of the Jordon Pond option. Glad we did.

A little bit away from the tourist center of Bar Harbor, but worth the drive. There are also wonderful places to visit near here. The Inn is charming and the restaurant upscale, with fair prices. The portions were large and very good. They suggest starting with the popovers, and they also come with the soups. They were right from the... More

The customer service is terrible, if people are spending a lot of money to stay there one would think you would at least be greeted at the door. Never again

We stopped at Asticou for lunch following a tour of Thuya Gardens and it really helped make the day special. The outside patio is lovely with a terrific view. I had the lobster quiche and it was delicious, while my friends enjoyed lobster salad which we topped off with a very good French rose wine. Can't wait to return next... More

After checking into the Asticou Inn around sunset after a long drive, I wasn’t in the mood to go driving around looking for dinner. Lucky for me, the Inn also has a restaurant. I started with the lobster stew, then moved on to flounder stuffed with crab. The stew was very good, lots of lobster chunks. The flounder was good,... More

I was looking forward to a great meal. I was extremely disappointed. The food was barely mediocre. I was looking forward to having calamari which was on the menu on line on their website. Then the waitress tells me we took that off the menu months ago. Then change your website's on line menu! So I had the mussels which... More

Food was just okay and a bit overpriced. To add scallops to a pasta dish was an additional 13.00 and you got maybe 5 small scallops.....Food itself was edible but not memorable....service was decent. Popovers were good but with the price you are paying for the meal (about 22.00-30.00 for an entree with no salad) it would be nice if... More

70 degree weather, outside dining overlooking the pool, apple tree and bay. Popovers that came with my soup (2 per order) were enough to share. The french fries with herb mayo were a great starter. We only had about a 25 minute wait on the covered porch at 2 p.m.

On vacation and celebrating our daughter's birthday so we enjoyed at mid afternoon lunch at this restaurant. Several of us had either lobster stew or seafood chowder. Both could have arrived hotter but we realize this is hard with a large party. The popovers were a big hit and Kyle our waiter was very personable. Rainy day so unable to... More
