Had our lunch at Mac's Steakhouse today and it was a very pleasant lunch indeed. Portions are big, food is tasty and service is very friendly ! The new Merlot (Crabtree) on the wine list is worth trying, it was really quite nice. If you are looking for a lunchplace with good, honest food, Mac's your choice then.

No complaints about this restaurant, by far the best meal we had on our tour through New Zealand. We had the filet and the chicken and the chocolate explosion dessert with coffee. The service was fast and much appreciated.

We went to this restaurant as our Friend had been there in the past and said it was great. The waiter that showed us to our table was unfriendly, then when we were seated we asked if they could turn the aircon on as it was stinking hot and the waiters were dripping with sweat., he said it was already on. We asked for water and it was warm the waiter explained it was from the tap and after debate he added ice to cool it down.
The two women orded beef and chicken salads, I would really like to know where the salad was, there was 5 tiny strips of beef and chicken and a sprig of watercress was all the green on the plate, tiny and overpriced. The boys got the lamb and at nearly 40 bucks was shocked when it came out, tiny but looked fancy. We were horrified when my friend nearly choked on some of her potato dish and when she pulled out the obstruction found it was a piece of baking paper, when told, the staff apologised but only replaced the dish after she asked for it to be replaced. After all this we chose to go elsewhere for puddin and another dinner as we were all still hungry, our bill was 170.00 for 1 soft drink, 1 glass of wine as we drank water as it was so hot, 2 mains, and 4 entree's plus 2 sides to go with the entee as the two girls had the entree as a main. Very over priced for what you get, which was overpriced food, bad service, and a stinking hot restaurant, The only thing i can say is the small amount of food tasted good, but i wouldnt say it was great.

The best meal and service I've had in the longest time.
Had an awesome acoustic band playing, really good service, food was tastey and definitely well presented! Busy for a Saturday in a long weekend, but we were very well looked after.
Would highly recommend and definitely go back!!

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!!!
