I only went there once took some friends for dinner at Christmas time. the food was superb, the atmosphere/ambiance was very relaxed great place to take a significant other for an intimate candlelit dinning experience. Price was competitive with most other restaurants proving that caliber of good food and excellent service.

Downsides: The only one for me was that it is quite far out if you live in the mid town or north end. to really enjoy an evening there and a glass of wine or two ensure you either get a cab or have a friend or relative to take you and pick you up

We eat at this restaurant twice a year with other couples and always have great time. Food, ambience, service is excellent. This restaurant uses really good quality ingredients and the preparation is fantastic.

The whole experience is Class A, from the intimate old house dining interior, to the service, and food served, all top notch. Thank you Mahle House for giving us such a unique and wonderful dining experience.

All roads lead to Cedar it seems and once we encountered a nice man at a gas station who gave us clear directions we finally found our way to Mahle House, a gracious two storey restaurant tucked away somewhere between the Duke Point ferry terminal and Nanaimo.
Server Craig presented us with the Wednesday night Discovery dinner, five courses for which we three women paid $50 each plus tax and tip. Not one of us got the same course. There was some pouting over the kale salad but everything else was marvellous, Candied salmon, gently battered cod, buttery tenderloin, a sumptuous peanut butter pie, velvety creme brulee and a flurry of other small plates made for a three-hour dinner--with good instructions for getting back to the b and b.
Our only cavil--washrooms are upstairs!

Menu is limited if you're not looking for meat! According to the meat eaters in our group, meat dishes are very good. Not the healthiest choices available for vegetarians. A bit overpriced for the way out location.
