We decided to pop in for lunch as we were in the area. The kids loved the iced chocolates. Lovely setting and the staff were very friendly. The food was excellent and would highly recommend!

Was a special occasion but not our choice as is a long drive and especially with the Police everywhere before Christmas. Our first choice of slow cook shoulder lamb was off the menu, 2nd choice from specials of turkey breast, they also had run out of. 3rd choice of port belly, only 2 left. First bottle of wine great but... More

We enjoyed our meals and the desserts in the lovely surroundings. My only comment is that the grissinis with the salami were a little old but the preserved fennel was lovely. The Rosewater pavlova with the preserved peaches was divine. One of the male waiters was definitely a little grumpy and we were happy when a young lady took over.... More

A local friend recommended lunch at Mavis'.. It was such a pleasant surprise that the food was fantastic given its remote location. Most of the produce comes directly from the farm or local producers. So super fresh. We had the 3 course $55 set lunch. All excellent. Service was also excellent. They also sell some local produce; honey, jams, macadamia... More

We were with a large group so the 2 course dinner price was reasonable. Food quality and presentation was excellent. Service was excellent. Venue was lovely in a beautiful setting. But the drink and wine prices were outrageous.

Myself and two girlfriends went for dinner here about two weeks ago. There was a wedding on in the grounds at the time. The staff made us feel 100% comfortable at all times, and we never felt we had to share. The surrounds are gorgeous, and relaxing. We chose to sit in a quiet nook on the far outside verandah...

Amazing food and service!!! My husband and I just got back from a long weekend up on the Gold Coast. We visited Mavis's kitchen for lunch after a long morning hiking Mt Warning. Although the restaurant was extremely busy the friendly staff managed to accommodate us and seated us at a lovely table. We ordered the sweet potato croquets, the... More

I agree. It's been eight years since we were here for a meal and something is definitely missing. Nice food, nice service (that is when we had to get the waiter's attention from talking with other staff). Nothing is outstanding (except the setting and the surrounding countryside). If a restaurant is to flourish with today's competition, it has to be... More

Though isolated in the hills near Mt Warning, this venue proved to be just the right place for us. The secret cabin was just perfect for the girls to have a laid back day getting ready, then a short walk to the hill where guests and the boys were waiting. Stunning views, surrounded by nature and 4 black cockatoos chattering... More
