We have dined here several times and have never been disappointed. The food, no matter what you choose, has always been excellent. We have always dined at night so I cannot comment on the view but the dining room has always been nicely decorated. This is a nice restaurant and a pleasant change from a lot of the more casual...

My husband and I dined here for his Birthday dinner while up in Maine. You will not be disappointed with the food or the service. We arrived a half hour before our reservation so we could enjoy a cocktail sitting out on the porch which overlooks the ocean. The view is just breath taking! Once inside seated, we were given...

Dining at Ocean is always a remarkable experience and one I often look forward to. I always ask for Laura to be our server and she never disappoints. She knows the menu inside and out and is always willing to offer a great recommendation. If you have not had the pleasure of an evening at Ocean, I suggest you do!

I am a resident of Kennebunk and the Cape Arundel Inn always gets my first recommendation when anyone is looking for a top notch dining experience. The ambiance is one of understated elegance. The food is to die for and the service is consistently excellent. And, of course the view is exceptional as the inn is located across from the... More

A beautiful restaurant that just performed poorly on our recent visit. Service was very spotty with servers not sure if they were connected to our table or not. To start, we were greeted and then told the specials by two different servers. The food was spotty with a scallop appetizer served in an odd melange of sauces detracting from the... More

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at this restaurant. We probably should have been dressed a tad bit nicer. The atmosphere was welcoming either way. They offered a nice selection of drinks along with unique tapas and meals. Hands down one of the best wait staff either one of us has had. From start to dessert a lovely... More

Great Restuarant located on Ocean Ave. with a view of Walker's Point. You can sit on the porch and have a drink before or after your meal and enjoy the scenery. Great place with good food.

Description
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. Chef Pierre Gignac’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. His 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.
