Fantastic food

We have eaten here 3 times in the last 6 months. The food is excellent. The steaks cooked just as you ask. The size of the meals is just right. A complete meal, without overdoing it. The service is polite, though not polished. The decor is plain. But the food is worth coming back for, again and... read more

We had mixed reviews at our table, 2 thought it was ok. 3 disliked so I guess majority rules. Staff were friendly however a bit inconsistent with service. Wine arrive with a bug in it and one of the kids meals had a big hair on the plate. Total cost was $200 for our table so it was a bit... More

I always judge a restaurant by the way they cook steak I had eye fillet medium rare and it was perfect the accompanying veggies were also very tasty my husbands sirloin was also amazing. We... More

We ate at Macs Steak bar New Years as it seemed to be the only restaurant that had a table free during that busy night. The staff were not very pleasant and the waiting time for EVERYTHING was terrible. We waited over 10 mins to even order our meals and had to call someone over. Our drinks then took 20... More

For starters, we shared the scallops and lamb croquette -both excellent. We then had the beef rib, fish and chips, sirloin steak, and pork belly for mains. They were all good, but the pork belly was particularly superb, and so was the risotto that it came with. We finished off with an 'ice cream mess' to share, which was wonderful... More

Disappointed in the reviews given. Steak was good but the Lamb chops were only ok. Nothing to shout about. The special of the day (a fish dish) was the worst! Friend ordered the fish which wasn't fresh and stank so much that I could even smell the stench sitting opposite to her. We didn't fuss but only gently offered our... More

Came for dinner on an absolutely miserable wet evening in Rotorua and pretty much had the place to myself, so atmosphere was non-existent. Despite this, staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious - although the portions were possibly too big! The scallop starter was particularly good, but I also very much enjoyed the beautifully moist pork belly.... More

The food was great as usual when it is lamb or beef in NZ. Large choice of local drinks. Service was very good but it was a slow day when we ate there with three-four tables for lunch. Easily found as it is located in the street concentrating most central Rotorua restaurants.
