We knew ahead of time what to expect in Bar Harbor for restaurants, the ones really touted were overpriced, in our minds, and crowded when we looked at them. Mind you, we were two visitors from the Caribbean Princess, with 3,100 passengers and there were...More

We went to Rupununi's on our first night in Bar Harbor. It was a bit cool and we had to eat outside because of our Golden Retriever. They said yes they were pet friendly and when we asked to sit inside the plastic liner they...More

We liked this place in previous trips - we always eat upstairs at Carmen Verandah which is Rupununi. This time we were ignored but they weren't busy. The food was not what it was before - definite drop in quality.
