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.

Great food, great service. Even while serving 40 Germans on a tour it was faultless. Enough food just with entrees. Service was excellent all through. Thanks

The chef is really doingg his best to make the presentation part of the experience. The food was very tasty, but the extras on the plate made it.

We dined here for lunch (has now been renamed Mac's Food and Wine) and were very impressed with the quick friendly service from the owner and the food was top notch. We had a chicken salad and lamb burger, the salad was full of flavour but not overdone and the lamb was cooked to perfection. The only thing we could... More

The staff at Mac's are very accomodating. The food is of a very high standard and well presented. The indoor outdoor setting is nice.

Not sure where to begin with this place. Only one staff member (manager) seemed to know what he was doing. The other staff were incompetent and lacked experience in the hospitality industry. We were told that it would be a 30 minute wait, fair enough, it was Labour Weekend after all. Three eye fillet steaks were ordered for our table... More
