Cafe Bluefish was one of our best nights out in Bar Harbor, for the food and the drawing room ambiance. Sadly, it's closed. However, the chef/owner has opened a new place down the street called Casa on Cottage where she serves elegant traditional Mexican food...More

Service was slow, food was expensive and merely mediocre. Rice was overcooked, main courses small. There are far better restaurants in the area. Went here in our 1 year wedding anniversary and left very disappointed.

Had an excellent early dinner here. Our party of 3 had salmon two ways and scallops, all of it was prepared to perfection. Cozy ambiance. Enjoyed the trivia cards and old yearbooks.

My friend and I arrived at Cafe Blue Fish, tired, (a little out of sorts!), hungry. We were initially looking for take-out, so that we could just return to our room. BUT - we walked into Cafe Blue Fish, and the atmosphere was welcoming we...More

High ratings? How? Yes I loved the ambience, very homey. Salad was the best part of the meal. Scallops marginally tasty and exactly FOUR of them? Wow. Salt and lemon did help though. Lobster strudel was a little better, but was pretty small. There are...More
