Absolutely wonderful food, there were a lot options with the bar and main menus and there was a strong focus on local produce. Service was very friendly and the venue had a cool apres ski vibe. We look forward to going back.

We were given a warm welcome by staff and found the overall experience really good. Staff were very attentive. The food was really good. I had vegetarian and found it really tasty and beautifully served. I really liked the idea of being able to see the chefs cook your food. Often they are hidden away so it was refreshing to see them part of the restaurant experience. We would definitely dine at this restaurant again.

Food was overall very average. The gnocchi that we ordered was hard and chewy, potatoes on my pork dish weren't cooked all the way through, and the chowder was flavourless and the soup was broken so very oily. Disappointing meal overall.

Nice experience! We could the see a lot of work was put in the dish presentation. Food was flavoursome and well portioned. Special point for how tender and well cooked the Hereford beef was.
Great service.

I chose this restaurant because I was so impressed with their offering of a vegan menu. Many hotel restaurants can have outdated, boring menus. This was not the case with Mackenzies. The main menu was easy to read with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free items clearly marked but on commenting about their vegan items, the maitre d' said they they have changed their menu in the last week to include more sustainable, plant-based items and showed me their vegan menu. The wine list also marked which wines were vegan. The staff were very attentive but not overbearing. The flavours were spot on. The hotel was cosy with great views. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

Food was great. We sat on the deck as it was a warm evening and we could see the lake. But the extractor from the kitchen was noisily extracting kitchen smells to the terrace, I think the terrace could be a way better.

We chose this restaurant as we were staying at the hotel. We have two children ages 5 and 6 and the staff were so accommodating with both the food choices and entertaining them with coloring books and pens while waiting for the food. Our adult meals were perfectly cooked (included fish and steak). I would highly recommend this restaurant

I wanted to have a nice dinner on a lazy Monday evening, with my partner to celebrate our anniversary, near home so we could have some drinks and walk. There are not many places around Fernhill to go for dinner. But this place has it all!! is amazing! It complied with all our expectations and more!!! Food is delicious, service is kind and positive. Definitely will go back . Thanks everyone that evening for being so kind. Thanks to the chef for his delicious food (we had the venison ribs, the duck, and Haloumi as a starter....lucky I walked home, I might as well go rolling!!.....)

Had an amazing meal at Mackenzies last night, the food was perfect and the service from Sai was second to none. Will certainly be back!

- dined at Mackenzies Restaurant & Bar on

My partner and I were seated immediately at a table of our choice. We ordered 2 glasses of the house sauvignon blanc, on special for $7 during happy hour. For entrée, we were torn between the flaming haloumi and the chevre stuffed field mushrooms. The server recommended the mushrooms, which were not so much stuffed as cheese on top of flat mushrooms but they were still tasty. For mains, we had the filet mignon and pot roasted orange & sage duck with 2 glasses of the house pinot noir. The filet was nice and cooked well & the duck did not have crispy skin but was still delicious. For dessert we had the tiramisu fudge made with cashews which was not bad, but not my favourite as I might be more of a tiramisu purist and did not think the flavours worked together. Altogether an enjoyable meal, we would recommend trying Mackenzies Restaurant & Bar on First Table!

Mackenzie’s was amazing!
The restaurant is lovely in itself, the staff are friendly and the food is just brilliant. We ended up having 3 different starters because the choice is too amazing. The ribs completely fell off the bone, the flaming halloumi is a showstopper and for myself, the plant based options were amazing, especially the tiramisu!
Will definitely be returning to Mackenzie’s without a doubt and would recommend it to anyone.
