    Our meal was absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately when our table was being cleared I ended up wearing what was left on my plate. So the night started off wonderful but didn’t end to well.

    Dumplings were fresh, flavoursome, broth well balanced. The pork and pippies not so good. Menu read pork and in our head thinking pork belly. We were wrong, minced pork boiled spongy balls, lacking texture and flavour. But the biggest issue shell grit, could not eat it. Staff said sorry to hear but o well nothing to else to say . We just paid the bill in full and left. I can not recommend this restaurant.

    Excellent night out during Bright autumn festival weekend. Service was super friendly and efficient. We had some great food and drinks - the stand out being the crumbed tofu korma and the Petuna ocean trout tartare!

    This was one of our favourite restaurant in Bright. However on our visit on 30th April we were quite disappointed with the new menu (new head chef apparently). We were advised that the menu has changed in the last 3 days. Two favourites remained in the entree section, the fried chicken and the prawn dumplings, both delicious. However, the calamari was very chewy and heavily battered. It was difficult to find a main meal to our liking, so we didn’t order. Service was very slow, 15-20 minutes between entrees. Regrettably we will not be back to this establishment any time soon.

    Our second visit here ! Food is amazing & we thoroughly enjoyed it ! Only downside was , 2 main meals arrived at the table before we had received entrée ! This was strange as we had said we were sharing entrees ! Would definitely recommend the food !

    My husband and I went here 2 years ago for our honeymoon and had an amazing experience. Coming back again did not disappoint. Even though they have just culled the Feed Me option from the menu, we were still stoked at the food quality. Prawn noodle dish was the standout but all were delicious!

    Service was great and atmosphere good. The restaurant could do a lot better if it offered some fresher options to go with the share food. A lot of the food was either fried or very salty. Whilst I enjoyed the chicken I found the other side dishes of vegetables heavy and salty. It's fine for the chicken to be like this but not all the food. If they could just offer some beautiful fresh low salt and not fried side vegetable dishes then it would have been great. Big negative was one dish was served after we had nearly finished all of our other share dishes. Would have enjoyed much more if it had come together as by that stage we were too full to enjoy it.

    Have been going to Dr Mauve’s each time we travel to Bright for a number of years. The food is amazing although I’d love it if they had a mixed salad or veggies on the menu. The last couple of times despite us having an early booking and the restaurant being virtually empty, when a group arrived after us without a booking they were placed at a table right next to us. Last night The group included a young child, were fairly noisy and the close proximity of our tables was very uncomfortable for us and probably for them. We were planning to stay and enjoy a drink post meal but instead decided to leave as soon as we’d finished our meal. It seemed ridiculous to us that our night was unnecessarily spoilt and May have to rethink a return visit.

    This was the second time I have been to Dr. Mauve. The menu may have changed, but the food was equally as good as I remember, the staff were incredibly friendly (I’d go as far to say familial) and the ambiance is perfect for a nice dinner out. I would strongly recommend from the current menu, the Nori Butter Broccoli, the Master Stock Pork Belly and the Confit Duck. These dishes were all stellar; I couldn’t pick a favourite. Anyone thinking of visiting for a meal should know that anything they order is going to be cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Also take the time to appreciate the hilarious works of art, the cats are perfect.
