Its not cheap but its great and imaginative food in a dining room with water on all sides....The service was a little cloying, a bit much but hey who complains about too much service.

It's a little pricey but the food is inventive and delicious. Our server, Grace was wonderful. Nice wine selection- I appreciated the Oregon wines! The atmosphere is lovely. The escargot appetizer was delicious. I also had the lobster with beetroot gnocchi. Wonderful!!!

Hello, Ocean Restaurant at Cape Arundel Inn is a smart casual establishment. Some people do arrive wearing them but it isn’t required to dine with us.

If you’ve ever dined on a luxury ocean liner, you know: Water all around piques your appetite, invites you to slow down and enthralls throughout a meal like no other show on earth. And if you haven’t, that experience awaits at the Cape Arundel Inn & Resort’s glass-walled, waterfront, fine dining restaurant: Ocean. Memorable evenings at Ocean begin with cocktails, like our Maine maple syrup-sweetened Amber Sky, on the inn’s relaxing front porch or at the bar. Continue your culinary journey in the dining room, where every table has a view of the frothy blue sea. Ocean’s creative menus change with the seasons, showcasing not only Maine-caught seafood in signature dishes like Lobster Thermidor, but the best of what is grown, raised and produced locally. The eye-pleasing creations take inspiration, too, from across the Atlantic. Expect the familiar flavors of southern France and the Mediterranean with intriguing new twists, plus an international selection of wines.
