For years, this was a one of a kind restaurant in Kennebunkport. Since David's opened a few years ago, it has stolen some of Bandaloop's thunder, but I will still give the edge to Bandaloop for quality of food. Bandaloop is on the small side and it is best to get reservations if you can during the busy summer months.... More

I loved Bandaloop. It was my favorite restaurant in Kennebunkport. I have eaten there more times than I can remember, but after a few terrible visits I dont think I will go back. I ordered the pork chop which I received rare. My significant other had the salmon in which she kept on finding bones- after telling the waitress about... More

Here is a restaurant kitchen that thinks 'outside the box'. The menu offerings are creatively reinvented from typical fare. My wife and I enjoyed the interesting flavors and eye appeal of our selections. We were also appreciative of the prompt and pleasant server. The non-food issue we had (which impacted our rating) reflected more on management. We arrived ten minutes... More

The online menu had haddock on it, which is why we selected this restaurant, only to get there and get told it wasn’t available. Had reservations, yet with several empty ready tables in which we could see from the door area that made us wait 15 minutes prior to seating us. Had to settle for a 12 oz steak instead... More

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
