While waiting for my room to be made up, I decided I needed some lunch after a long day traveling. I decided to try the MacKenzies restaurant at The Heritage. It is decent. The host was very helpful in seating me and making sure I was comfortable. She gave me a decent interval to look at the menu and then came back to take my order (off-season, mid-afternoon, not a lot of staff). The "lunch" selection was limited, but it all sounded nice (note, the lunch menu I saw basically was the same as the "starters" menu for dinner). Ordered pasta. The surprising thing was that the restaurant wasn't particularly busy when I was there (one other table and they were served about five minutes after I sat down); but the kitchen (it is an open kitchen area) was more interested in setting up for dinner and socializing, so my food took a while to arrive. It was hot and tasty, but even for a pasta dish it took a lot longer than necessary. But, other than the wait, I enjoyed the restaurant; and if you are staying at the hotel and don't want to go in to town to eat, then I would say you would do fine here.

We had booked as information in our room said bookings were essential, however the restaurant was quiet with diners at only 3 other tables. We were welcomed by service staff and seated immediately. Drinks were offered straight away and the menu and specials given. The menu offered a good selection - though not extensive - and enticed. Staff were happy for us to order one course at a time as we progressed through the menu. Only managed 2 courses each - however all of the food was beautifully cooked and presented. My husband had smoked salmon entree followed by pork belly main. I had pork belly entree and the fish special - which was outstanding. We both loved our meals and enjoyed a lovely bottle of Central Otago Pinot Gris with it. A little pricey but well worth it. Would highly recommend you give it a try.

Our experience at this restaurant redeemed our stay at the Heritage. We were 'wowed' by the lamb shoulder (best we've ever eaten - tender and flavoursome) and dessert (baklava). The pork belly was crunchy and well-cooked, but seriously, order the lamb, it's amazing. Attentive and friendly service. Best quality/priced house wines I have seen anywhere - NZ$7 during happy hour (5-7pm). We recommend the house chardonnay. Great choice for dinner if you are staying at the Heritage - bit of a hike if you are in town.
