Great steak

We ate in Macs Rotorua as a spur of the moment decision after finding ourselves hungry in Eat Streat . Three of us all ordered different steaks to be cooked in different preferences , and in fairness they all came back exactly how we wanted them . I enjoy mine well done, and was a bit worried... read more

Had lunch today 26/03 after reading the lunch board out front. Normally go to Brew bar which is opposite (great in all aspects). Sitting and reading over the menu I decide on the chowder which I get told they do not have today! Cover it on the board out front bec that's what I wanted and why we choose to... More

We ordered lamb croquettes and scallops for entree. The lamb was ok except for the tomato sauce on the plate (not needed at all) the scallops we have heard in NZ are quite good but we were very disappointed. Asked for medium eye fillet was given medium well again with tomato sauce on the plate. Other steak was the Tomahawk... More

The atmosphere is excellent being located in the heart of Eat Street which provides a great all weather outdoor dining experience as most of the street and restaurant outdoor space along it is covered. Mac's had a great menu that drew us back for dinner after enjoying a few drinks at a craft brewery across the way. The Pork Belly... More

Saw the ''Beef and Lamb" winner on the post outside when checking the menu out. Thought the place would have great food because of it. We were really disappointed. I ordered sirloin steak and hubby ordered lamb rump. The steak was tough, chewy, underdone for medium rare. The lamb was only a little better. Neither hubby nor I wish to... More

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 again.

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
