“Excellent Food”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Loved the food, just as good as any restaurant in Melbourne. I really liked this restaurant not only because the food was great but the wait staff are friendly and have a sense of humour!

“Best Restaurant in Eden”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We decided to stop by Eden on our way from Melbourne to Sydney. Mystique was recommended by local friends as the number 1 restaurant in the town. After a long day driving we had a late dinner (we were extremely happy to find them open) and the food was exactly what we needed.

The restaurant took our booking no problem and throughout the night the staff were attentive and friendly. Rod is a fantastic character of Eden, happy to have a joke and keep the air casual.

The restaurant itself is cosy and was maybe 2/3 full when we arrived.

The menu was well rounded but we both chose the steak and a side of wedges. The servings were large enough and absolutely delicious. Whilst we didn't have desert, I saw some amazing ones go past!

Prices were a little steep but weren't unexpected for a quality meal in a small coastal town. All in all a lovely little restaurant.

“Fine food, needs work on atmosphere”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

If this is no 2 for Eden, it does not bode well for the rest.
Was not impressed by food. Atmosphere is bit dull, not helping the overall experience.

“Popular and well presented”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We arrived on time for our table booked at 19h15, and were seated underneath a ceiling fan, which we asked to have turned off. The relatively small restaurant was fully booked, with a table set for a group of 12 or 14 (it was just before Christmas). Aperitif wine was served quickly, and we selected oysters and smoked trout, followed by a steak (rare) and chicken breast. The food was swiftly served, almost to the extent of being rushed. Both mains were delicious, with Australian-sized portions a bit of a turn-off for European appetites. Red wine by the glass was good too, although difficult to get a refill as the large group had sat down and were taking up all the staff attention. As a result, we skipped desert. No complaints for the food, just a shame they didn't have more waiting staff and then might have made the experience a little less "fast food".

“Food is excellent. Service depends on timing”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

I see that there is a wide variety of reviews for the restaurant.
What cannot be doubted is the quality of the food - it is excellent. The service I think depends on when you go. Our B&B hostess recommended early so we had a 6.30pm which turned out ideal. We noticed that towards the end of our meal they were struggling with the numbers to serve which is unfortunate for them.
The exterior is not enticing but fine once inside. Our waitress was very good and the barman/manager kept on top of our drinks but you could see him getting more stressed ask they became busier.
Would recommend but go early
