Good kiwi fodder

We enjoyed our dinner at Mac's Steakhouse. There was 7 of us each ordering something different. The lamb shank was particularly good. A no bells and whistles type of décor but very friendly staff albeit quite young.

The meal was lovely but I felt more sitting in a lunch bar than a nice or cosy restaurant. Service was fine just the environment didn't feel like you wanted to linger around.

The kitchen staff went out of their way to accommodate for dietary requirements and the waitress was just lovely and we felt very welcome to eat there. And the food was wonderful. Thanks so much xo

This is an Eat Street restaurant. We were able to sit inside on a cold winter afternoon, but it was still a bit chilly inside too. Our waiter was friendly, helpful, and attentive. A mocha coffee tasted great. The mahi mahi lunch special was fresh and cooked nicely, and the grilled sirloin was ok. The portion sizes and prices were... More

I ordered a bottle of wine as the waiter suggested it would be much cheaper than ordering by the glass. I drank half of the bottle and when I asked for the cork to bring the remainder home the waiter told me that they didn't have an off licence so I couldn't take the bottle away. Despite his protestations I... More

Beautiful place in the eat street was nearly packed when we found a corner table for 5. Quickly the maitre came to us and took the order and it was just the blink of eye... More

If you are wanting a great steak at a reasonable price Mac's will not disappoint. Good sized meals beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. We would all happily return.

we were on a two day visit to Rotorua and ate at Macs (now called Mac's Food and Wine) on the first night. There were four of us and we all had superb meals. My steak was one of the best I have ever had at a restaurant. The others all enjoyed there meals and the staff were so friendly... More
