This is one of our favorite local restaurants! The food is consistently great, the ambiance is warm with a rustic elegance, service is professional and friendly, their wine list is fantastic and desserts are always worth the indulgence. We always have a great experience at Cafe Mahjaic, great spot for a date night or dinner with friends.

The food at Cafe Mahjaic in Lotus, CA was excellent. We had the pre-fix menu and were able to select an appetizer, soup or salad, entree, and dessert. We all tried different items on the menu and every one of them was out of this world! Delicious! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. We chose to have the 4 course pre-fix dinner which allowed us to choose from a few different options! The service and food were excellent! The price was reasonable for a good amount of food, and the wine was very good!

This was a totally unexpected gem of a find for us! We were at Eden Vale Inn and didn't want to drive all the way back into Placerville for my b-day dinner. Instead, the manger at the Inn suggested Mahjaic and we were wowed. We live in Marin County with lots of great food all around us, and we thougt... More

I can`t say enough about Cafe Mahjaic as we send all of our guests from Bella Vista B&B there for dinner. Everyone comes back with rave reviews about the presentation, flavor, and ambiance of the dining experience ! Thank you for your "Artistry" as it`s such an important part of our community.

Service was over the top, they acknowledged our anniversary by sprinkling some sparkly confetti on the cloth tabletop, fun! Glass of Barbera wine offering was delicious and poured generously. The entree of pork schnitzel was good, the risotto was average since it was heavy on a balsamic vinegar taste. Had the fixed menu for $32 which is a steal for... More

This cafe is located in a charming, historic building. The menu is varied, unique, fresh and presented with care. The small cafe includes romantic lighting, fresh linens, and a great wine selection. Knowledgeable, helpful wait staff. Reservations are helpful.

Ever driven past a place and told yourself that one of these days you'll try it? Well, after driving past this restaurant dozens and dozens of times we finally made it in. This is a very small venue, but they make the most of the space available. It has a very historic feel and blends nicely with the surrounding area... More

I had a wonderful glass of sangiovese wine that I am searching for now. The food presentation was lovely, and my sea bass entree was excellent. The food was served hot, on hot plates. What a find!

Don't skip the opportunity to eat here, even if you have only one night in town. It was amazing to find a chef of this caliber in such a small town. Every bite was a delicacy, all 3 courses. Will delight and surprise your taste buds! WOW, what a treat!!! Great professional service, wonderful historic building, yet casual and comfortable.
