Dining at Ocean

OCEAN MENUS

Ocean is Open Daily Serving Dinner From 5-9 PM

Join us on the Veranda for light fare & drinks, daily from 3-5 PM

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 while lounging on the inn’s veranda or at the bar. Continue your culinary journey in the dining room, where every table has breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean. Ocean’s three-course tasting menu changes with the seasons, showcasing not only Maine-caught seafood, 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.

For the 2023 season, Ocean is delighted to offer a three-course tasting menu priced at $105++ per person, as well as a four-course menu priced at $115++ per person. A Chef’s wine pairing is available for an additional $60 per person for our three-course menu, or $68 per person for our four-course menu.

Ocean is open daily, serving dinner from 5-9pm and light fare on the Veranda from 3-5pm.

“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

 

“Fine New England Dining in Maine. The view from Ocean restaurant is breathtaking. Relax with a craft cocktail on the quintessential New England veranda. Then, enjoy classic Lobster Thermidor appetizer or Butter Poached Lobster, Red Beet Potato Gnocchi, Horseradish Cream, Pickled Pears and Sage Roasted Root Vegetables. The menu changes with each season featuring Maine-caught seafood, and the best of locally grown and raised cuisine.”
