Camden, ME, 04843
Natalie's at Camden Harbour Inn
Overlooking Camden Harbor, Natalie’s is a uniquely stylish and welcoming place - a lively corner of Paris amidst the panorama of mountains, harbor and islands that surrounds Camden. The menu celebrates an entirely fresh approach to the very best ingredients – some familiar, some surprising – creatively paired, never over-worked, always brought together with extraordinary results.
Our Award-winning Executive Chef Geoffroy Deconinck seeks out the bounty of local Maine fishing boats, farms, and gardens to create distinctively modern and imaginative interpretations of classic French cuisine.
Dining is also offered seasonally on the heated, covered wrap-around porch. More casual meals may be enjoyed at the bar or in the Princess Juliana Lounge adjacent to the bar.
Reservations are encouraged, especially in the summer season, even if you are staying with us. If you are a guest at the inn, please book your table with the maitre d’hotel or the staff at the front desk. Jackets are not required because we want you to feel comfortable, but we do find people often dress up a little bit because dining here is special.
