Based on the tripadvisor reviews we had high expectations but what we encountered was incredibly poor service and bad food. We ordered the prix fix - one sea bass and one steak. The appetizers were just ok but the Ceasar salad was swimming in dressing leaving a soggy lettuce mess on the plate. The steak was ordered medium rare and... More

Cafe Mahjaic never fails to provide fresh, seasonal fare in a delicious manner. It's a small place so make reservations. The chairs are not real comfortable (need some padding) but we always manage a 2 hour meal anyway. Nice wine list too.

Went to try this place out and had the price fixe menu. Appetizer, salad, entree, and desert for 30 dollars. All so delicious. The steak is the best I have had ANYWHERE.

Just had Thanksgiving Dinner at the Cafe Mahjaic in Lotus, CA. Building had been a General Store, built in the 1850's. Great ambiance, great food, great service. Prix Fixed menu today, all the choices were delicious. Appetizer of 4 Dungeness Crab legs was a treat.
