Cafe Mahjaic - Lotus Inn
Special foodWe were impressed by the amount of care taken with each plate. We all ordered from the fixed price menu, which was an incredible deal at four courses for $25. Every single dish was great! Everyone at the table had a taste of each plate, and we all loved every single dish! The chef seems to be very clever at combining flavors, and the presentation was very pretty. The restaurant itself is in a beautiful old rustic building, and it's a nice drive to go there. One caveat: the restaurant likes to seat exactly at the time of reservation, don't show up early. Also, our meal was long, it looks as though they do not do as many seatings as many restaurants do nowadays-we've become accustomed to being rushed in and rushed out- this was leisurely.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove to be at Cafe Mahjaic --Just know that you might want to consider being a first reservation -- things go smoothly until it FILLS up. I LOVE the food and the menu. The currently available (May 20013) pre-fix menu at $25 is the perfect amount of delicious variety and food for me. Great price on food that is very amazing -- especially if you like to eat good for you food that is also good for your soul and for your eyes, nose and tastes!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMahjaic of loveWhere the echoes of river rush confluence with memories of gold rush you'll find this hidden nugget.

The size of the portions was perfect and it allowed us to enjoy four different foods rather than being restricted to one large entree. Although we live 30 minutes away from the restaurant I am hoping to go there at least twice a month. I hope Mahjaic will serve lunch at the weekends.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Halibut was World-Class.The Halibut was World-Class.

Exquisite everything!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA gemA gem! A little bit out in the country, but it's worth the drive! Amazing $25 Prix fix 4 course offering and our group of 4 enjoyed every course. A measured pace and European style portion size results in a really satisfying experience. Didn't try the a la carte menu but would expect it to be as outstanding as the Prix Fixe.
Will definitely be back again and again.........3/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
