This dinner option, located in the Camden Inn, has to be one of the best dining experiences you will ever have. Excellent service accompanies the delicious menu items and wine selections. A bit pricy, but well worth it for special occasions.

I went for the lobster tasting menu. All the items were sublime. All elements of my visit there were superb. I could go through a thesaurus for words meaning the highest degree of excellence, however, I'll let you do that. Any word you settle upon will be appropriate. I live in a town just a couple of miles south of... More

My husband & I did the 3-course Menu Prix Fixe and the experience exceeded our expectations. The creativity, flavors & presentation were top notch. As with many of these dining experiences, some of the chef's creations were included between each of our 3 courses. Also impressive is that the chef was able to accommodate my lactose dietary restriction while finding... More

Who knew? Truly sophisticated cuisine in Mid-Coast Maine? Natalies would be at home on Park Avenue, or l'Avenue Foch. It's that good. There are two dining options. A Prix Fixe avec or sans vin pairings, and a lobster tasting menu. Did you get that? A lobster tasting menu. We opted for the three course tasting menu sans vin and it... More

I was astonished how good this relais and chateau restaurant was. My wife and I did a lobster tasting menu. Four courses of lobster every one done to the nines. The Chef has mucho talent. The server and maitre D were superb and oh the chocolate peanut butter shake was to die for. Quite pricy but worth every penny

The caliber of our marvelous dinner at Natalie's was beyond even my highest expectations. The presentation of our food was beautiful. The tastes of our dishes was sublime. The attention to detail is extraordinary even down to the homemade rolls which were served with dabs of sweet butter on clear glass slabs with a choice of six different flavored salts... More

The 5 stars aren't enough, this place excels on all fronts. The seating was prompt, the staff was friendly, and the food...well...Where shall I begin, the fresh picked baby carrot dipped in goat's milk cheese chef's treat.

A beautiful four course Lobster menu was our selection, although a three course offering with any options was available as well as a seven course meal with wine parings! With all this you will not be intimidated. The servers are highly trained (rare these days) and warm in their approach and personalities. Before long you will feel like one of... More
