“Weird slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

We asked for an outside table and rather than sitting on the lawn section, we were brought upstairs onto the roof area, where they usually have nighttime cocktail parties. We felt like we were forgotten by the staff. Service was REALLY slow. Which we could have forgiven if the food was really good. But it just wasn't. Not horrible, just not good enough to make up for the bad service. There are much better options in ogunquit.

“You will not be disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Go to Gypsy's -- you will not be disappointed. It is in an old house right on Shore Road, walkable to almost everything. The food and service are good, so is the wine. You can sit outside, or on the enclosed porch and watch all of Ogunquit go by.

“The best so far.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I've been going to Ogunquit every year in the fall and, until now, had found good restaurants but not a really really good one. I overheard the Mayor talking to some people on the street and telling them to go to Gypsy Sweethearts for the best meal in Ogunquit. We went that night and we weren't disappointed. The people were extremely friendly (the owner was actually from Alabama) and the service couldn't have been better. I had a warm salad to start and the mussels and both were wonderful. I will definitely go back next year. They close sometime in October for the winter so call ahead and make sure they're open and make reservations. The people behind us in the restaurant were also raving about their meal! Also a great atmosphere in a charming house!

“Warm and Cozy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

My husband and I had a meal here once several years ago and remembered liking it. So we decided to try it again...glad we did!
Everything we ordered was delicious! We liked the candle holder on our table and asked were we could buy one and our waitress said that we can purchase them right there. The owner Tony was kind enough to give us a bees wax candle that fits the holder so that we can use it as soon as we return home. Gypsy Sweethearts is now one of our favorites!!

“What a Pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Expecting this place to be your typical tourist trap, we walked away with a completely different view. The food was superb (I had the walnut-crusted Haddock), the wait staff as well, and the the proprietor Tony was a gem! We loved the ambiance, location, food, and restaurant furnishings, and we even went so far as to buy one of their unique beeswax candle holders! Definitely patronize this one!
