The restaurant is overlooking beautiful Lake Te Anau and offering the best cuisine and sourcing the finest ingredients. A perfect place to relax and enjoy sophisticated dinner with excellent service and a hearty breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed chicken curry for dinner and croissants for breakfast.

We arrived without a reservation and ended up with a lovely table overlooking the lake. The area we ate in was very small and I think we were only this lucky because Te Anau is so quiet. I would recommend booking. We had one of the nicest meals we’ve had in our five weeks in New Zealand and the staff were lovely. Unobtrusive, professional, friendly service.

Smiling faces of wait staff Henk and Luzette - Great Food and Amazing View

This restaurant and the service exceeded expectations. Every dish - fish and meat were lovely. Appetizers - duck egg rolls and salads delicious. Wine great value. Window seats overlooking lake divine. And did I say Henk and Luzette the hard working and attentive wait staff make it all special.

Best Dinner in Te Anau

Just finished eating, quality and location are just great. The pork chops were the best we had for a while and the fish & chips were phantastic, too. Compared to yesterday's dinner at the Redcliff, the MacKinnon is magnitudes better

Surprisingly good

We viewed the menus of a number of restaurants in Te Anau and they were much the same as we had experienced in Manapouri and Queenstown then we came across Mackinnon’s The menu was far more varied and interesting and we had a great experience with good food and an exceptional and friendly service from Evan. A really good night out.

both food and ambience is superb

Ate there on recommendation of the proprietress of Radford by the Sea. Ate in the Explorer bar which is part of the restaurant but it has only seven or eight tables . This made for a very quiet dinner with nice lake view and a setting sun, simply a great combination. The seafood chowder was great and both the duck breast and local blue cod were par excellence. Excellent wait staff and Mr Prashear provided the most unobstructsive but excellent service while trying to manage the bar at the same time. A great dining experience for both of us

Should be rated number one

This is a classy hotel restaurant that offers above average food and service. Despite having a hundred guest wedding function about to start we were offered a lovely table with clear views of the lake. Friendly waitress staff and great food made for a very enjoyable evening. Prices might be slightly higher but you get what you pay for.

Great food in a perfect location

Perfect location in front of the lake We were seated at a very nice table with a great view over the lake The seafood chowder and the lamb shank are really delicious !! The restaurant manager or may be maitre D ?welcomed us nicely when we made our reservation in the afternoon and when we arrived for dinner. he help us choose the wine for our party of 5 and treated us nicely and politely. The only problem with the service was that they didnt bring our dishes at the sane time so we had to wait approx 10 mn to start eating when everyone was served We also had to wait for 20 mn to get our desserts but they had a large group that night which could explain the kitchen seemed overbooked Anyways no big deal as the food and the place itself are really nice I highly recommend this restaurant specially for a dinner at sunset

Nice location, friendly and great food

Located on the front overlooking the lake, lovely and comfortable and friendly helpful service. The menu has a good selection of reasonably priced dishes and generous portions. I opted for two of the entrees which was quite sufficient. The only minor flaw was that the Caesar salad didn’t appear to have any Caesar sauce, I think the chef forgot. When mentioned they were most apologetic and it didn’t detract what was a good dinner.
