20 minutes wait to be noticed, Drinks another 15, food took over an hour ( at least the server apologised) very small meals, only veg were potatoes or garnish, husband's steak came on a cold plate, asked for heat and it was returned without sauces. All in all...# don't waste your time or money. Oh yes and the decoration.. Bare... More

First went to Macs 10 years ago and remember theme having the best streak and service. Have just been back and what a disappointing experience. Was told when we first arrived that meals were an 20 minute wait. Now 20 minutes isn't that long but the Rotorua clock must have slowed down as it was a least an 40 minute... More

Had lunch with a friend. The lunch menu is great, plenty of choices. Staff were friendly and efficient. The premises were very clean. Will be going back for dinner.

Wow wow wow is all I can say. What an amazing taste bud experience. We enjoined our meal so much we went back the next night. First night for my entree I had the seafood selection, all elements where cooked perfectly and all came with their own beautiful sauce. Second night entree I had the chicken salad, what an explosion... More

The place was empty and bare, not a busy time of year but it looked so uninviting. No decore, clinical, the food could have been great but I doubt I will ever know... Looked more like a doctors waiting room than a restaurant.

This place has a good name for its steaks and don't get me wrong their steaks taste really good. But the rest of the experience apart from the food is a bit lacking. The meals have a premium price tag but the service was severely lagging behind. Small things like plates not getting cleared were annoying. Portions are small unless... More

We've had great meals at Mac's in the past, so it was quite surprising to return on Anzac day and find the menu diminished. We were with friends from the UK and were hoping for a meal which would impress. Unfortunately, this was not the case. My steak was beautifully cooked, however when you're paying $40 for a steak in... More

The layout of the restaurant is appealing. The service is very friendly. The steak dinner was tender and delish, and the chicken dinner was yummy. The dessert choice was very good too. They had live entertainment which was excellent, a young guy on guitar and a young woman singing beautifully. Mac's have a pretty good selection of food. We would... More
