A nice old house surrounded by garden and lawn with resident bunnies will serve you a price fixed meal but not tell you what you are going to eat. There were two of us and we each got different appetizers, salads and desserts which was ideal for sharing. The food was tasty, well-prepared, fresh & local; service was excellent -... More

We have dined here many times and are always impressed with the quality of the food. This is a family run affair and it shows in their pride of place. Fresh herb garden outside and use of local ingredients ensures flavourful dishes. They are imaginative and beautifully presented. Extensive wine list with extremely knowledgeable servers to guide you to just... More

my husband and I had the special of the night, which was stuffed rabbit. It was excellent, veggies were cooked so you enjoy the flavour of each and everyone of them. The porcupine prawns were outstanding, a must have. Excellent service. A pleasure to eat there.

I've never found the food to be particularly "special" at the Mahle House and I think patrons pay more for the brand than what they actually get on their plate. I don't mind paying a premium if the food is exceptional, but it's just not that great. Not our first choice, even after repeat visits. The portions are ridiculously small... More

We were looking to dine somewhere different. I searched trip advisor and from the reviews of Mahle house we chose to dine here. This is the most beautiful quaint little house I've seen in this area. There's a good selection on the menu. The hummus is delicious as well as the porcupine prawns. We had the chicken and steak which... More

We came here on a recommendation from the Blanket and Spoon where we were staying and were delighted with the choice, quality and friendly service. It was quite innovative - loved the Navajo bread and humus starter!

The restaurant is located in a renovated old house giving a charming but conservative atmosphere. A small group of us were there on an evening which featured the option of 'adventure Wednesday' which offers, for $44, five mystery courses which are chosen by the kitchen staff. Along with this is offered a flight of 3, two ounce taster glasses of... More

Celebrating a 25th Wedding Anniversary and a friend recommended this restaurant. What a fabulous choice! Warm & welcoming atmosphere,excellent service. The food was beyond our expectations--presentation & quality--superb,quantity--surprising! (usually with "fine dining" the portions are quite small). The porcupine prawns & calamari were scrumptious appetizers. One person in our group had the prawns for their main course also! The other... More

The ambience, staff & food are fantastic. We have been dining at the Mahle House for 6 years and have yet to be dissapointed. The menu maintains all the signature dishes while mixing in seasonal fresh items. It's a family owned business and the attention to quality & detail shows. If you enjoy food & wine it's a must.
