First, about those noise comments. It's not a quiet romantic place, but neither it so loud that you can't have a good table conversation. Not a major issue. The service and the food were outstanding. Server was efficient and friendly and helpful. Nice wine list and diverse menu. We both had different duck dishes after an great thin crust pizza... More

NOT ROMANTIC AT ALL! Not sure how this is ranked so high. It is expensive and nothing to write home about! We hated how the kitchen and the wait staff seemed to throw plates around like there weren't good paying customers who would enjoy a quiet meal. Would not go back!

Absolutely my favorite restaurant on the cape ! Had the coconut Tuna and it was superb. Cooked to perfection. Pizza was good like the prosciutto and fig. Friendly bar staff so grab a seat at the bar.

A lot of things have changed in my life since I last visited Del Mar Bar & Bistro, but an opportunity allowed me to take my daughter, Stefanie, there in early December. My wife and I always wanted to get there with Stefanie and her husband, but schedules never made it possible. Anyway, Stefanie and I had a delightful dinner... More

Dinner, Service and Atmosphere are all exceptional: the menu was extensive with many specials, we had seafood and everything was really delicious. . It is very crowded, even on weeknights, so reservation is a must.

We ate outside on the patio. There were heat lamps and blankets provided. Service was prompt and our food was tasty. Our only complaint is that it was very noisy and crowded - but that is to be expected with a popular place.

Del Mar in Chatham is a casual dining experience with top quality food. We expected gastro-pub type food, however, we received gourmet meals at very reasonable pricing.

We went in just to have pizza one night (our first time at Del Mar) and it was awesome! Totally enjoyed. Loved the restaurant and their menu - would like to go back and try more on our next visit to Chatham! Great cozy restaurant with a friendly staff.

Chatham, a short scenic drive from Hyannis, has Del Mar on Main Street. Paula our waitress made our evening most pleasant and shared little tidbits about the fantastic menu, entrees, and wine. The chowder, salads and entrees were heavenly followed by cannolis that were perfect.

Loved this restaurant. The food, service, all were very good. Its very crowded, even on weeknights, so definitely make a reservation. The hustle & bustle actually lends positively to the ambience.
