Cockatoo is WAAAY off the beaten path deep in the Deer Isle woods, down a dirt road, but it's worth the effort. Some of the biggest mussels we've ever seen. Prepared very simply. Excellent scallops. Very nice skewer beef. Beautiful view of the rocky shore. Surprisingly reasonable pricing. Good selection of beers and some wines. Attentive service.

Three of us adults had lunch here in mid June 2016. Our appetizer of stuffed mushrooms was tasty with a hint of spice and our wine was chilled in ice to start our meal. Our choices of lobster roll and fried clams were prepared well, the sautéed in butter and lightly seasoned lobster was pleasantly different from the cold with... More

We ate there in June of 2016 and I had there beef and shrimp skewers and my partner had a fish stew. Both were good although the shrimp a little tough. The waitress was oustanding and we would go again

We were staying on Deer Isle and wanted to try this place. The drive is quite long, down a very rough gravel road past several cabins that looked like they were falling down... One of our party said she could see where this area might inspire Stephen King. There were a few cars parked in the area but the interior... More

Our party of six adults enjoyed a wonderful Portuguese culinary experience at the Cockatoo. It's a little drive out of Stonington but you arrive in a beautiful coastal setting. The shrimp Mozambique was delicious, the prime rib was huge, and the Caldeirada (Fish Stew) was spectacular and uniquely spiced. They have a range of home made desserts that were also... More

We started with martinis, blueberry being my favorite. The scallops were fresh and cooked just enough to melt in your mouth. The crowd was definitely local, a testament to where the best food is found on the island. Arrive before sunset so you can enjoy the best view on the island. Don't miss this treasure when you visit the area.
