Had a good meal here, the service was good and at a reasonable price. The best part if the evening was sitting outside watching as people were dancing in the square, the were barn dancing and then rock and roll to a live band. A really great night

Enjoyed lunch with three friends
- great selection of Mac brews, cider and juices. Lovely and trendy location, funky interior, nice atmosphere and friendly service. The food was good and was big portions (chicken sandwiches, steak baguette which was open and so long it was a bit difficult to eat, and Thai green curry). Would recommend and would return for drinks. Shame there isn't any brewing equipment or brewery history on display.

Lunch with our teenagers some elderly American friends on their first visit to Wellington. We wanted somewhere with variety of food to suit all and close to the harbour. The guys of all ages had the lamb burgers which they said were excellent, the girls had the fish cakes, which were lovely and fresh tasting. Service good - they make it clear that you order at the bar, which I quite like as you get your drinks straight away....table service afterwards good. Only disappointment was no mussels available. Good selection (well it would be) of Mac beers meant we could try something different. All in all, a successful lunch.

Great location, nice seating inside and out and heaps of good options and specials on the drinks.The atmosphere is pretty cool inside from the lighting to the building itself. It is an impressive building. The food was just ok and to be honest we decided that if we came back it'd be for the drinks and atmosphere. The food was nothing to 'wow' about.Our service was poor though. The food for the three of us came promptly but the waitress forgot our cutlery. She actually said she forgot it and would come back with it. She never did, and when we asked her about it she said she forgot and went back to get it. She never came back and in the end one of the group went up to the bar to get the needed utensils.
Ordering the drinks wasn't any better. Two people in front of me got served and when it was my turn the girl behind the bar mumbled something and took off.I had to line up again and the guy who served me apologies for what happened. Maybe it was a weekend crew, but the service was not impressive and it wasn't even busy at the time we went.
If we went back it would be to go back for the variety of drinks but nothing else warrants vising there again.

On the harbour in Wellington, this is a great place for a drink and a simple meal. Great value too. Try the green lipped mussels.
