“The best steak in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

You certainly can't fault the steak or the lamb, they where both cooked to perfection and beautiful and tender. The waitress was lovely and polite but needs to learn to check on her customers and ask if they would like another drink instead of us having to wave her over every time. I would go back!!!

“Best Green Lipped Mussels!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

My partner and I were desperate to try some Green Lipped Mussels before we left Auckland. On our day trip to Rotorua we were excited to find that this restaurant had them on the menu. They were amazing! The best I have ever had. Not to mention you must try the garlic bread. My mouth still waters thinking about them. The rest of the menu looks great and lots of other seafood too!

“Plenty of variety available and good sized portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Have eaten here on a few occasions and everytime the food is awesome, the steaks are good quality and the chef cooks it just to your liking! A bit more expensive but then you do get what you pay for!

“Yummy food but service very slow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We unfortunately went on a night when they had a big group of diners and they didn't seem to have enough staff. The service was really slow - we had to find a waiter to ask for a drink and even then it took ages to arrive at our table. The food was yummy and very nicely presented but took a long time to arrive. Impressed with the variety on the menu - hard to choose! The kids menu was awesome too - not the usual chicken nuggets and chips!!

Thank you Mac's our dinner this evening was lovely.... from the entree to the dessert each dish was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. As a local we've dined at most restaurants round town and can honestly say this ones the best. We will be back.
