We came to Bandaloop with great hope. We had heard the raves about the restaurant and looked forward to a wonderful dinner....sadly, it did not live up to its hype. The mussels were good, but not great. Same with my Cod dinner. My wife's pork chops were tough, not tender. And the service, while pleasant, was very sketchy. A long... More

The food and service were very good. Interesting menu choices. Everything was very freshly prepared. The Sangria was excellent. Not very noisy. Nice sized portions; not too expensive. I would highly recommend this place.

Went to Bandaloop on a chilly night in November, and found the atmosphere and staff welcoming. The exposed wood beams and lighting made the space feel cozy and inviting. The food was very good. The mussels appetizer was great, and both specials we ordered for dinner were different and tasty. I'd recommended going.

We changed our mind from being in a sports bar/restaurant and were looking for something more intimate and calm. This fit the bill and the food was absolutely delicious!

Bandaloop is a dining treasure and mainstay in KPT. We've been dining here for years and Chef Lee's creations just get better and better. Skillfully prepared, fresh, local ingredients. One of the best meals recently--goat cheese & beet app special. His specials never disappoint---our guests loved the tofu & salmon. Best Creme Brûlée I've ever had (many times over). Great... More

I am not a vegetarian; however, this restaurant carefully prepares meals to meet such dining expectations. I love this restaurant's "Wilted Spinach Salad". I usually top it off with deliciously cooked shrimp.

Interesting bistro decor. Good service. Before I had a chance to complain about the obviously short pour of our glasses of wine, the waitress corrected it on her own. Attaway to go, Girl. She got a good tip. This is definitely one of the better places to eat in Kennebunkport.

Had dinner for 4, the food was very good with great variety. I had stake but the seafood was good also. I went with friends who are locals, they go there all the time. The staff was friendly and the bar is very spacious.
