Once again we were impressed with an inventive and memorable meal. Wait staff was attentive and knowledgable, as usual. Bravo!

Food is good but a little pricey, time you add drink and salad. For two cost $80+. Meals are fresh and done well. Service and staff very nice. Wife had fell outside the place and they gave her a bag of ice and if she needed. The restaurant is very small so need a reservation

We greatly enjoyed Mache Bistro, having been sent there by some restaurant owners/friends in Acadia, The menu was inventive, the service excellent and the price was right. By all means, go!

We had a great meal during our visit. I had the duck, the combination of the confit and the smoked breast was a great combination. My wife had the hanger steak. The waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable about the food and its preparation. Reservations required, there is a small bar, 4 seats, available for walk ins.

We were last in Bar Harbor in 2001, and at that time, Mache was our favorite. Since then, it has changed ownership. A bar has been added to the already-small space, a change that we felt detracted a (little) bit from the romantic atmosphere, but that is a purely subjective opinion. Most important, despite the passage of time and the new ownership, the food is still spectacular. My wife had one of the best duck dishes either of us have ever tasted. I had scallops, something I seldom order, and they provided sensational taste. The service was also impeccable.

Warning: because the restaurant is very small and very popular, it is essential to make reservations well ahead of time.
