This restaurant is nothing to write home about, but we enjoyed our 3 meals there. They have decent wine by the glass. We tried the crispy Brussels sprouts (a little salty), the veal Marsala - sauce was a bit heavy handed. The boiled lobster - delicious, also served with very good corn on the cob. Pasta with Bolognese sauce - tasty. Various salads - delicious. Salmon (from Scotland) - wonderful. Lobster and crab ravioli - delicious - very rich. Service was prompt and very accommodating. The views of the harbor are incredible! It was so convenient to have a decent restaurant right in the hotel - avoiding the difficulty of getting reservations and parking in town.

We ate at the Hotel Restaurant, La Bella Vita Ristorante, because we did not want to take the shuttle to Bar Harbor when it was raining. We found the soup, pizza, spaghetti, salads, and desserts were wonderful. The waitress was attentive and prompt. We would definitely skip a Bar Harbor restaurant for this find.

Just had it this morning, the Lobster Benedict. I was afraid it was going to just be eggs benedict with some lobster ion top, but this was its own dish. And utterly delightful. Highly recommend.

We are fortunate to visit Bar Harbor several times each summer giving us a wealth of dining data. The La Bella Vita Ristorante at the Holiday Inn Regency Hotel is our clear number one pick. Wonderful food from pizza to elegant entrees from the sea and the fields. Service is incomparable. The wait staff is American and international and greatly add to the evenings enjoyment. We are tennis lovers and were pleased to be able to watch the US Open on a personal screen built into our booth without distracting from the elegance or disturbing our neighbors.
