Have been dining at Mache Bistro for the last three years. This restaurant does not disappoint. Excellent service. Great food taste and quality. The Poached Pear with honey and Stilton was amazing. As are all their dishes Will return.

We visited on a Friday night, had a reservation ahead. The waitress was lovely and the food was quite good, especially by Bar Harbor standards (which are usually ok, but not quite what we're used to coming from Portland). The cheese plate and two olives...More
