Great view of the harbor here and may be its best feature. This is a restaurant in a small resort open to public. Great looking outdoor Teakii Bar but seemed to be jammed up with some loud folks who looked like they had taken it...More

Signature dish was nothing special among mussel dishes in general. Stuffed clams were served cold and had to be reheated. 1:00 pm on Saturday. Place was empty of customers. Service was ok, nothing special. Soup of the day was not announced or available yet.

OMG--the food is amazing! And the view! And the service! Perfection all! We came for lunch on a gorgeous day and had a memorable lunch: for starters, cod fritters and chorizo sausage we cooked for ourselves--along with glasses of vino verde, house red, and beer....More

The Cockatoo is a little off the tourist roads but has a typically beautiful Maine view from a high vantage point. indoor or outdoor seating is equally nice. The menu is not truly Portuguese although one of the owners is. The Portuguese influence is apparent...More

My wife had the mussels and LOVED them. I had the Portuguese steak and it was delicious. Local fishermen were eating at the bar with us, and said it's the best place around. We suspect they are correct. A really great meal.

Beautiful views while dining but too bad the dining experience didn't match up. Food was just so-so. Guess they're the only dining establishment on that end of the island so they figure it doesn't matter. Locals coming in after work for drinks & munchies. We...More

We ordered paella, which was stated as being for one person only. We realized that we would have to pay the extra $5 to share it. What arrived was a large plate with rice, a whole lobster, a large piece of fish (haddock?). steamed shrimp,...More

We recently had lunch at the Cockatoo. The calamari, fish soup & stuffed clams were good. The waitress was very attentive, helpful and friendly. We ate outside, which has an incredible view of the ocean.

While visiting Deer Island we decided to stop by for lunch.. We walked in the restaurant to the screeching of the two cockatoos, but not a single person in sight. No hostess, no servers, no bar-tender, just a open computer atop the bar. Someone was...More
