Hands down the "BEST" smoked salmon pate' I've ever tasted. Then a terrific lobster strudel in a great filo pastry. My wife had the Cafe salad, very nice! Then she had the mushroom bean stroganoff with sherried sour creme sauce. Topped it off with the dark chocolate and salted nut strudel with ice cream - OMG! The atmosphere is very relaxed. If you want a great dining experience while in Bar Harbor, don't miss this place. I would absolutely go again!!!

I love the Asian hints in the dishes! I had the Korean BBQ on Salmon and my wife had Filipino Adobo chicken. The Malbec was excellent and we really enjoyed the background music. We will be back !!

We decided to give the new place in town a try. Unfortunately, it's still suffering growing pains.

To put it short - excellent food but service nonexistent.

Good idea on their part to put trivia cards on the table - it will give you something to do while you wait for your server to appear. If and when your dinner arrives, it's creative and flavorful, a bit on the spicy-hot side but not overbearing.

Might give it a second shot when we visit BH again in a few years. Hopefully, by then, it will be THE place to dine in BH with reservations hard to get. Hopefully.

Lobster and Boursin strudel was offered as the restaurant speciality but both items were hard to find within the pastry.
My wife's Mediterranean stew was satisfactory without being exceptional. One overworked waiter for the whole restaurant and very pricey for what was presented. Not impressed.

We went to this place for dinner. Not very busy..which is usually a bad sign. Yet, this place was an exception. Not enough advertising is more likely the answer.
Menu was very eclectic. Very interesting combination of seafood and Korean or Philippine twist. The menu was completely different from their website. So, they need to work on that, too. Delicious food !!
