Description: Inicio Bistro is a quaint summer perch located on the second floor at 237 Main Street in downtown Oqunquit, ME. Our cuisine is predominantly Middle Eastern, Spanish with other world and regional touches. We make our own Hummus tahini, Falafel, Tabouli, and Lamb Meatballs. Our Adalusian White Gazpacho is amazing. Our grill items include - Chorizo Kebobs, Gambas Espana, Black & Blue Salmon, Grilled Hanger with Chimichurri sauce and more. We complement our menu with a tasteful selection of wines, craft & import beers, ciders and spirits from around the globe. We also offer free WiFi and smartphone plugins at the bar.

I am in Ogunquit with ten family members and we were looking for a place to eat that would accommodate all of us. Inicio's menu offers something for everyone from tapas to salads to burgers to lobster cones. The blend of Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine was a hit with the teens, adults and grandparents. Our waiter, Eric, served us well. The restaurant is located in the village, a great location for anyone staying in Ogunquit.

White gazpacho was like drinking cream out of the carton. The Mediterranean plate looked large, but only had 4 falafel balls. The lamb meatballs were good, but tasted the same as an average meatball. A bit pricey, but really good location.

Inicio is a welcome respite to those who have had enough traditional Maine meals. Sitting out overlooking the main drag, we dined on Mediterranean food, swordfish, and delicious wine. Service was very accommodating, the vibe is lively, and it's a great place for adults to enjoy happy hour or dinner. We would certainly go back after a most pleasant experience Prices are moderate, and if you're not overly hungry, there are always the small plates. Yummy!

We loved Inicio. The food is fantastic. We tried many specialties.
We loved the homemade hummus, Gazpacho, The french fries are yummy with the spicy sauce. We also enjoyed the shrimp dish, a Burger, and the Lamb Chops. We would recommend this restaurant.
