Wonderful dining experience

My husband took me here to celebrate a recent milestone in my career. The food was brilliantly prepared and no detail was overlooked. Great wine selection and service is spot on.

We had a family gathering celebration dinner here, and we very happy with everything. The building is a heritage home, converted to a business, so enjoy it and don't expect much spare room. The staff were attentive, and helpful. The food was outstanding, and some of the best in the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the Mahle House...as first time visitors to Nanaimo, we weren't sure where to go for fine dining and a local highly recommended this restaurant. The staff are exceptional..truly. The food was outstanding and served in generous portions, at the correct temperature and in a very timely manner. The wine list was extensive and the coffee?...

Each time different very flavourful and beautifully arranged food. This has become my restsurant of choice for dinner. I highly recommend the Mahle house well the visit. Enjoy! !

This place is well worth the visit. Staff are great, food is very good and presented nicely. Not always a lot of food, but sometimes that's a good thing. I have eaten here many times over the last 10 years and have absolutely no complaints about anything.

This is not an inexpensive place to eat, so it's the kind of restaurant you visit when you decide to spend a bit of money and enjoy a really special dinner. There are some evenings each week with special menus, including an adventure night when you dine with a group of friends and enjoy a five-course meal in which the... More

I always enjoy dinner here, especially since it is within walking distance to my home. My daughter took me there on Saturday. She had the salmon, which looked amazing, but I opted for the pork with apple/bacon chutney, garlic mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. It was delicious! We had shared the prawns for an appetizer and they were as always... More

My girl friend and I were here last October 1st for the adventure night dining. It was her birthday and we wanted to do something different. The five courses were presented well but the timing between each course was long. I am not a big fan of goat cheese and I think this is one of their favorite ingredients. I... More

Located in Central Cedar many people are surprised that this restaurant has been such a success. The food has been consistently top quality and a fine selection of wines are always available. The chef here uses herbs and vegetables grown in a garden onsite. This restaurant supports many other local farms and businesses by buying local whenever possible. Stop by... More
