Fine dining at it's best. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is fantabulous. Friday night Tapas is a must, it's fresh, flavoursome and delicious. The staff are just devine and are very attentive. The gardens are beautiful and a great place to meander around after your meal, taking in the home grown herbs and veges, a real experience knowing that's... More

Stopped for a light snack with friends. Had just a starter each. We were shocked at the price of the scallops. Four tiny pieces of scallop on a smear of something whitish and decorated with a few small purple flowers. The food was fabulously overpriced and we remained distinctly hungry. Hope the main courses are better value but we are... More

My daughter and I came for lunch and I have to say the food was 100% spot on. I had the pork loin and my daughter had the chicken saltimbocca. Both had well balanced flavours and the serving size was perfect. The service was good and the staff were friendly. However, it's the chef that shines here who brought our... More

I can't recommend this place enough. It's total perfection. The venue is superb, the staff warm, friendly and very professional, and the food delicious. Better than a five star restaurant without a doubt. The gardens and building are delightful. We had the black mussels, the Cointreau glazed duck and the rose water pavlova. All courses were delicious. We shared the... More

This dining experience is casual and charming, with a country setting, but great food too. Front of house attentive and knowledgeable, not pushy, friendly and welcoming! Owner in house with the guests, and all food fresh and divine. Presented like a 5 star posh restaurant. Worth the drive, stay and linger plus enjoy the organic garden or stroll in the... More

We've been to Mavis's a few times and never disappointed. The food has always been wonderful - they did an extraordinary job one night when the power went out to the district, cooked by lamp light, amazing. great setiing. Service is friendly & competent.

Friends recommended this restaurant and our experience outshone even their rave review! Beautiful setting, great food and friendly service. We sat on the verandah overlooking the carefully tended gardens with a gentle breeze wafting through this elegant old Queenslander home. Well deserved accolades for a magical afternoon's dining experience.

A Sunday special lunch could hardly be bettered than to be here at Mavis'. Plenty of soft cool grass, a working vegie garden and hidden away in the mountains. The staff were friendly with an easy casual banter. Food was fine but that was to be expected from the referrals we had received from friends. Most diners were upstairs but... More
