Excellent food, sourced locally. Some original offerings. Pleasant surroundings with a lovely garden in season. Good service. Definitely worth a visit.

Reviewed 28 May 2014

The appetizers are not to be missed, especially the porcupine prawns and calamari dijonnaise. Wine list is tops.

“Impeccable service, superb meal”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

We visited Mahle House on our way back from a weekend in Parkville. This was our second ever visit but certainly won't be our last. The service was impeccable, from the greeting through the goodnight, it was only topped by the food. I had game {Elk) which was delicious and my wife had a salad. Local ingredients, prepared to perfection at a reasonable price (around $125 - we've spent considerably more at Sooke Harbour House and other 5 star restaurants).

The restaurant is a little hard to find but do make the effort, you won't be disappointed (also take the long route back to the highway, the rural scenery is a perfect compliment to your meal).

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The service was nice, the food was amazing.
We expected the price to be high, but we didn't expect the food to be so amazing. We will be going back.

Beautiful old heritage house. Nice local wine selection. Food well presented but average taste. Good ice cream for dessert. Quiet and enjoyable. Recommended.
