I hadn't been in a while but I got invited and was pleasantly surprised. Heard they may update the menu which would be exciting. Currently this restaurant is my favourite place to go out for a nice date night or celebrate a birthday. Excellent and professional service. Delicious food.. Make sure you say hi to Luke!

We have heard many positive things from others about Mahle House and finally for my birthday, I chose to go there to try it out myself! All I can say is WOW! We went with four of us. One was vegan and had an awesome meal. This friend is not rigid vegan so was ok to have a bit of... More

We went here on Adventurous Wednesday. I will start by saying the service was very good. Some of the dishes served were good...but some not so much. To serve salmon tartar and beef tartar...these 2 items are a very acquired taste..and while I am "adventurous" these were not good. I'm not sure if the best option to serve...which would certainly...

We have wanted to dine here since we hard about it last year, and we were not disappointed at all. The food was exceptional, the service was wonderful (Nick knows how to play to a group), and the place itself is homey and inviting. We were a party of six, and everyone ordered something different, and it was all fresh... More

We just returned from another great dinner at the Mahle house. We were quite happy that a few new menu items have been added and decided to give them a try, Our son had the Duck breast with house cannelloni, I had the coq ay vin (Excellent) and my husband had the pork tenderloin. For starters we enjoyed steak tartar... More

We were treated like royalty. Food was exceptional and the service was 100%. I was there for mothers day, and was impressed at the quality of both the food and the attention we received.

We have been dining at the Mahle House for ten years. The food is always great, service superb! I have to say the new chef has added a new spin and it's great. The steak tartare is to die for!

My family of four came to the Mahle House for the Adventurous Wednesday menu. This was my first (but not last) visit to the Mahle House and thought it would be fun to partake in the 5 course tasting menu. We loved it! The food was fine dining at it's best and there was something for everyone at the table... More

Enjoy a vastly superior dining experience at the beautiful Mahle House in Cedar, just south of Nanaimo. I took my son here to celebrate his 22nd birthday. He has had chef training, so I was confident that this restaurant would satisfy his insatiable apatite for fine cuisine. He started with a traditional martini and savored their perfect mix until after... More

Tried the five course mystery dining experience here this evening and was very disappointed. Only actually enjoyed two of the five courses and one was so bad I ate almost none of it. For the price this restaurant is very overrated!

Hi Lisa G, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of our restaurant. Glad you thought the restaurant is beautiful and that the service was good. I am disappointed to see you did not enjoy the food however (or the majority of it). If you are able to share any specifics with me I would be most... More
