Had outstanding appetizers, wine and excellent scallop entree. Service was very good as well. Only quip is that it is a bit overpriced.

Great food. Inventive chef. Both the duck confirm and yellowtail tacos were excellent. Best food in Bar Harbor.

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice meal at Mache Bistro. The waitstaff is professional, attentive and efficient. I enjoyed my salmon but my taste of my husband's scallops has me wanting to return to order them. This was a pricey meal but we felt worth it. And we appreciated the air conditioning and comfort of dining room.

I had a very nice meal here: I ordered a special appetizer plus the duck confit, washed down with a lovely large pour of a sparkling rose. My spouse, however, was less pleased. He had the steak au poive and found it not only small (we almost ordered an entire second serving of it, just so that he would feel... More

We enjoyed a quiet romantic dinner of small plates here on our last night. I would highly recommended! Don't miss the French lobster roll and the lemon olive oil cake!

Our dinner here was very good, the service also very good. A welcome counterpoint to Bar Harbor's pubs and cafes with lobster in every type of dish possible. A word of caution about reservations though. A phone request for a 7 pm reservation was dismissed, offering only 6 pm. We arrived to an empty restaurant, and an empty patio. After... More

We did not have a reservation but we were seated on a small side porch that was very pleasant. They had a small but nice wine list. We both ordered the baby back ribs and a beet salad. It was a delicious meal and a very pleasant evening

This is a very popular place so recommend you make reservations. They really did not want to seat us in the primary area since we had made our reservations last minute but they did finally agree to give us a table we were comfortable at and then things seemed to get better. The food was amazing and very creative the... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner on our first night in Bar Harbor. I had the manchego and chorizo appetizer. It was a nice slice of cheese, thinly sliced chorizo sausage, and some crackers. The chicken was on a bed of arugula and fresh tomatoes. Yummy! For dessert, the lemon and blueberry cake with blueberry ice cream was delicious. Portion sizes... More

We love dining on tapas - we can share lots of different creations. Mache Bistro has an excellent selection. My husband and I shared 3 and it was perfect. My favorite dish was the Fried Green Tomato Stack... it was layered with lobster salad! I will try to recreate this dish at home and bring back wonderful memories of our... More
