We ended up eating at Mac Neds only once, the place looked very simple but for a tasty and large meal you've to stop there. We had 3 very tasty dishes and the hamburger was really big with the lot.

If you are feeling hungry, drop into McNeds for a good hamburger. Big with all extras. Very tasty and good value.

For a simple dinner of local fish, salad and crispy fries to the best juicy burger ever, this is an inexpensive, no overhead, excellent local restaurant. $10NZ for a full meal.

Mac Neds was recommended to us by some other visitors to the island. We weren't disappointed. Very fresh, yummy burgers. Operated out of the front of a home. Nice thickshakes.

We were looking for a great burger and Mac Neds had that reputation. We were not disappointed. We had a burger each, and thick shakes. Absolutely awesome. A great place to stop for lunch.

Right on the main road heading into town, this little place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the burgers and milkshakes are absolutely awesome. And of course you can dine with a view of the lagoon across the road! Definitely worth a stop for lunch

What a feed you couldn't ask for better. Good value as well. A neat place to meet the locals and chat about the island and things to do.

Go & see Gretta at Mac Teds she makes the best burgers in town, great service, fantastic hospitality & great prices. She is the only take away apart from the cafes, her prices can't be beaten as everything is very pricey. Her actual shop got destroyed in the cyclone of 2010 & now she works out of her home...she is... More
