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 Golden Hour, made with rhubarb vanilla puree and gold leaf, while lounging on the inn’s front porch or at the bar. Continue your culinary journey in the dining room, where every table has breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean. Ocean’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. The 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.

Named one of the “Top 100 Scenic Restaurants in America” by Open Table reviewers!“Generous windows allow guests to appreciate the food, the view, and the fantasy within the dining room, which is illuminated at night by the soft glow of votive candles.” –Down East Magazine “The dining room at Ocean is a gracious two-tiered space with an intimate bar area in front. No matter where you sit, the ocean vistas are spectacular – it’s picture-postcard Maine.”
–Portland Press Herald Voted “Best Ocean View”.
–Yankee Magazine “Ocean is one of those rare treats where the alchemy of service, food, and good company culminate into a special dining experience. Ocean gets top marks for its views of Walker’s Point– the compound of President George H. Bush and his family on the Atlantic Ocean– while you linger over duck magret, the beef duo (of mignon and short ribs bourguignon), or of course, lobster. – Travel & Style
