Chef Pierre. Created a fabulous meal by poached fresh Halibut in olive oil! Reservations are a must way in advance. Enjoy cocktails on the porch take in the view of the Atlantic Ocean and President Bush's summer summer on Walker Point!

Returned to Ocean for two back-to-back dinners and wasn’t disappointed. In thinking about it there are places with more interesting food, or eclectic wine lists, or dramatic atmospheres or even better service (though that last one might be tough to find!). With Ocean it’s a...More

Had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful meal with friends at Oceans recently. The soup, salads and specials of the day were all excellent. Service was great as were the views. We look forward to returning to this restaurant.

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.
