Top 5 Romantic Kennebunkport Restaurants

Bev and I travel frequently and have rarely been to a destination area like Kennebunkport, Maine where there are so many excellent restaurants. I am starting a series on Kennebunkport’s restaurants because I believe it is important for our guests to know what a wonderful selection the area offers.  I am starting with Kennebunkport’s 5 most romantic restaurants.  Each of these restaurants is different and offers different menu choices.  However, each also provides a top-notch dining experience of superb food, attentive service, a romantic atmosphere as well as great wine selections.  The first we recommend is the White Barn Inn which has received the AAA Five Diamond Award for many consecutive years.  That distinction is earned by very few restaurants in the US. This is one place to enjoy a very special celebration!  The second of our recommendations is the Cape Arundel Inn which offers an ocean view from every one of its tables.  The inn’s porch is a wonderful spot to share a glass of champagne while watching the sun set!  A third one we recommend is On The Marsh which offers a quiet atmosphere, piano music plus an award-winning wine cellar.  Bev and I enjoyed a delicious dinner here with our Breast Cancer Survivors last November.  Our fourth recommendation is Pier 77 which is located on the harbor in Cape Porpoise.  Pier 77’s  location offers spectacular views of the lobster boats, Goat Island Light House, soaring seagulls as well as the occasional kyaker.  Those views certainly compliment the excellent food.   Our last recommendation, but certainly not the least, is a new restaurant which opened last fall; it is Tia’s Topside. Offering a somewhat more casual atmosphere, nevertheless it has terrific food and amenities the others don’t. It is just over the bridge from Dock Square.  Also, it has a deck and great gas fire-pit overlooking the Kennebunkport harbor.  So, come for the Captain Lord Mansion‘s accommodations and then enjoy one of the best choices of romantic restaurants North of Boston!  Yes, Kennebunkport Maine restaurants offer a wonderful choice.  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
