    I would have to say not at all impressed with this restaurant When I made booking I spoke with restaurant directly to confirm time required to have nice meal without rushing as we had tickets at confed center for 730 I was told 6pm would give us more then enough time to enjoy our meal. we arrived at 6pm ordered immediately off the matinee menu told our watress we had tickets for evening show. we were served our food at 715pm which gave us aprox 10min to eat Not what I would describe as a relaxing meal Not likely to recommend

    We have eaten at Mavors a number of times. As always, we completely enjoyed our experience. The staff are lovely - professional, friendly and efficient. The food is delicious. On this visit, I had the seafood pasta with pesto cream sauce and was absolutely yummy. It was loaded with fresh seafood - lobster, scallops, salmon, and shrimp. Our favourite place to sit is in the courtyard which is decorated in such a pretty way. This time, we brought friends who had never been before. They commented several times how charming it is in the courtyard and how much they enjoyed their meals. I have never had a bad experience at Mavors and it remains a go to place for us.

    Don't get the pad thai (as others have warned) - mushy bowl of overly-spiced noodles. Fish & Chips was heavily breaded - little fish.

    Steak sandwich i had was good but the Pad Thai my wife had was overcooked and swimming in too much curry sauce. The seafood (extra charge of $8) consisted of 3 shrimp and 2 scallops. She asked for a crusty roll to soak up some of the sauce (like I had for my sandwich) but when it came it was the same pudding dry excuses for bread we were originally served. She couldn't give my wife a roll ... That is only for the sandwich. Worst meal in PEI

    We enjoyed our pre-show dinner. The service was prompt and friendly. The meals were simply delicious. The pork tenderloin was the best our guest had eaten. Always enjoy eating in your restaurant and we have never been disappointed by any of the meals we have had be it lunch or dinner. Will definitely return for more.

    I was very impressed with Mavor's. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. The spinach salad appetizer was outstanding. The maple roasted baby red potatoes that came with the pork tenderloin are not to be missed! The shortcake trifle was huge, artfully presented and delicious. I definitely want to return, especially since the description of the chicken confit looks great.

    This restaurant is perfect for pre and post theatre dining. Centrally located in the Confederation Centre, it has meals specifically targeted for theatre goers and will let you know if your choice can be prepared in time for theatre time. I had the Seafood Spaghetti and it was delicious with a delicate sauce and a wide variety of seafood.

    Mavors is a place we have used many times over the years and we have rarely had any complaint. However lunch the other day, a pre dr adulation lunch for my son shared with my mum who had travelled from UK, was another story. The courtyard, setting. ambience etc was lovely but the majority of the food we ordered (party of 5) lacked it's usual flair. The scollops looked like little 'bottom of the barrel' ones on a bed of sad greens.... the veggie burger was tasteless, gluey and mushy.... my son had M2 burger and left nothing!! My mums desert had to be taken off the bill as it was rock hard, as in unpenitraitable and freezer burnt! (s.moose). All in all it was un satisfying and as it was such an important celebratory meal.... disappointing.

    3 of us dined @ Mavor's on June 20th or 21st, at 6.00 p.m.I had a burger, my wife fish & chips (without chips), and daughter had a veggie burger. The suprising thing was the roast potatoes, which all 3 of us ordered - there were so many! So we took home the surplus ones, and weighed them - there was 1 lb, 10 oz. Astonishing, and silly. I know potatoes are cheap, but to overload the please with them was ridiculous. All the food was O.K, but not outstanding. Service from Leanne (recently in Kenya) was fast, and excellent. Place was busy and rather noisy, but lively. Prices were reasonable, esp. for red wine - good.

The flowers were of excellent quality and nicely displayed. The employees all acknowledged his birthday. The food was delicious. I had the Cranberry, Brie Chicken...YUM!

    Good food, service was excellent (thanks Catti) but our quiet little anniversary turned into a noise filled group due to no fault of the restaurant, so that was disappointing. we did appreciate the offer to move, but our meal was about 1/2 over. The food was terrific - lots to take home, and the complementary dessert = delicious. Thanks for the chocolate martini suggestion!!
