Mahle House is the place that I want to take my wife to but don't want my kids to know about. The food is decadent, in a oh so wholesome manner. The service is first class without interfering with the event. Duck Two Ways for my wife and Steak Frits for me. Two warm up salads and to die for... More

Our first and definitely not our last visit to this local restaurant. It was my wife's birthday and we decided to try this place as we have tried other Oceanside restaurants in the area, what a delight! Our server Rachelle was excellent, although she did have to apologise profusely due to my original two wine selections not been available even... More

We've been going to the Mahle House for years. Not sure why I have not reviewed it earlier. Everyone nailed it with, lovely garden, generous portions, professional servers, delicious food, varied menue, excellent local wines. We once dined in an upstairs room for an anniversary dinner. There were 12 of us and all left satisfied. I am going tonight!

We chose the tasting menu and were extremely pleased! Everything was absolutely delicious and presented so wonderfully. They were not small portions as you would expect from a tasting menu. What a great value!! Service was very professional and personable. We chose a glass of champagne over wine as their wine list was extremely limited. Grounds are beautiful with all... More

The staff were terrific, the food excellent. Yes it was on the pricey side but we left feeling we more than received what we paid for. The location is out of the way from the bustle of Nanaimo and worth the short drive. The space is comfortable and the noise level minimal. Service was top notch with a great wine... More

When we visit the Nanaimo area we make it a point to make reservations for dinner at Mahle House and we've now been blown away by our most recent experience of their five-course tasting menu for "Adventurous Wednesday" — be sure to try a 3-wine tasting flight of reds or whites to pair with your order. Make sure to bring... More

The evening was delightful. Service was first class. The staff made us feel important. They took time with all patrons and added stories of interest. We were watching the appetizers arrive at other tables and one intrigued us, they brought us a sample. My steak was the best I had in a long time. Will get going back for sure.
