An excellent dinner during our visit to Kennebunkport. The staff (especially our brilliant waitress) were all very friendly - nothing was too much trouble. We had a table of four and one of three for two couples and our respective teenage kids. The quality of...the food matched the exceptional service. We would highly recommend visiting if you staying in or around Kennebunkport.More

We are chefs by trade and absolutely love the lobster boil dinner, but after 3 days wanted to try something different that didn’t involve a 4 course prix fixe. The staff here is beyond charming! We started with the grande charcuterie board and followed with...the Gnocchi Parisienne and the Wellington. The food is perfectly executed, and absolutely amazing. The experience was wonderful. Caveat: book in advance as the word has gotten out! This is the place to be!More

We loved this restaurant! We ate here tonight for dinner and it truly was delicious and a very fun light atmosphere (our waitress Gabby was so awesome and made dinner fun with her friendly sweet vibe! The hostess was awesome too!). For starters, my husband...had the oysters which he loved and we shared the bread with yummy thyme butter. For our main course, we each had the steak which was marinated perfectly and so tender. We were too full for dessert but they looked lovely too. I’m so happy we ate dinner here tonight and hope to return before our week is over here in Kennebunkport.More

Had dinner tonight and the Pollack wellington was very good - spinach and pollack in a puff pastry with a tasty sauce The French onion soup was also very good. Service is excellent and the wine selection very good. Good food for the price. Coffee...is outstanding - sourced from Mornings in Paris which was a nice touch. No view of the water, but the wooded area is very pleasant and the dining room spacious enough.More

My wife and I have been here for several years just noticed the gym for the first time. It’s right off ducks square somewhere hidden behind mainly drizzle. We had magnificent appetizers followed by extremely well prepared entrées. I’ve eaten in every restaurant from Ogunquit...through Portland and this is one of the finest 10 experiences I’ve had this season. I just came back from two weeks in Germany and Austria and I will get to this restaurant to be as good as any Michelin star restaurant as far as the quality of the food. The owner hostess is friendly and aware of how a restaurant should be properly run. Her partner husband head chef knows his craft and has excellent discipline in food preparation as well as plating. Go to this restaurant you will not be disappointed. I had French onion soup and panseared chicken which is always a signature dish that I enjoy at a French bistro. My wife had Pollack Wellington. We also had salads and a few cheese courses with some incredible baguette.More

Cute bistro just off KPT’s main street. Fondue is a must starter. Everyone loved the steak frites. I’d recommend the pea salad and the gnocchi. Friendly staff.

We went to Chez Rosa to celebrate my birthday in June, and it was fantastic! We had a private table away from the other diners, which was really appreciated. Our server was wonderful and brought us with complimentary rose, nice! We started with the baguette...with thyme butter … oh my gosh it was good! I want to put thyme in my butter going forward, lol! For our entrees, I had the pollock Wellington and hubby had the steak frites. Both dishes were fantastic! We had a very enjoyable meal in this charming restaurant and never felt rushed. Highly recommend!More

We used to frequent Bandaloop and had been looking forward to eating here. Unfortunately, the experience did not meet our expectations. The waitstaff were very friendly and professional. We enjoyed the appetizers, the oysters were fresh and very good, the pate was also good, although...the entrees were a let down. My husband had the pollack Wellington and said it was not good, I could tell from the smell that the fish was not fresh. I had the ratatouille with polenta which was okay, although more like a side dish than an entree. After four courses, I left a little hungry. I don’t think that we will be returning.More

Chez Rosa is the place for a perfect dining experience! The ambiance, wine, service and finally, the food, is impeccable ! Last night’s meal was stellar! Started with oysters that were so fresh it seemed that were only minutes from the sea. The salad dressing...was so delicate over the salad, totally enhanced the taste of the beets and greens. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the mushroom bourgignon with tofu has such depth of flavors you would never miss the beef! The staff is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly, no pretense here! I cannot wait to go back!!More
