Restaurant details

You can choose between the buffet (primarily aimed at the tour buses), the bar menu or the a-la-carte menu. We chose the a-la-carte menu and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the meals which were obviously cooked by a top-notch chef as everything was cooked to perfection and the flavours were superb. We expected a basic tourist hotel meal but got much more than that.

I wouldn't say that the Mackenzie Hotel is quite as nice as the pictures on the website would lead you to believe. It was a good, solid meal at a fair price, but nothing more than that. My wife and I both had the lamb shank, and it was very tasty. We opted to eat in the bar as a Chinese tour group seemed to take up the dining room. It seemed like a friendly spot for the local people in Twizel to get together and have a beer.

I stayed here for one weekend in Autumn. It was very comfortable and pleasant. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was very good. It was very good value for money

We appreciated being offered both the ala carte and bar food menus. The meals we chose were from the bar menu, but came out delicious and well-sized. Others around us had desserts, and they looked wonderful. Service was cheerful, helpful, and efficient. Lovely seating by windows. Very peaceful.

We had a quick lunch at Mackenzie's in Lake Tekapo and were very please. It has good food, good wine, and a great view of the lake!
