We visit Mac and Wild most weeks and took some family there for a meal. We had a lovely time, great food, lovely location and the staff were fantastic with all of us. The entire experience at Shin is second to none and is our first choice at the weekend. Maddie, Lucas, Jacob and the team look after everyone so well and are a credit to Mac & Wild. Well done, David and Sharon.

We made a lunch reservation but it looked like there was no table reserved for us. Luckily there was one table left although they had to clean it first. The food was good. Unfortunately the tables were not frequently cleared and cleaned. New guests had to take place at overloaded tables, the overall feel of the place was ‘sloppy’ no better than a fast-food restaurant. Maybe dinner time is better. This made the lunch experience a bit disappointing although the burgers and venison were great.

Servers seemed disinterested on our arrival. Had to find own reserved table. Food was fabulous but let down hugely by poor service. Not sure if we would come again.

Really disappointed, planned our route home from doing the north coast 500 after being booked In for two weeks and looking forward to finishing up our weekend with really good food. Following you on Instagram, the pictures looked amazing. Unfortunately we were told that the time we had booked in online was too close to them closing (which isn’t our fault) online system shouldn’t allow bookings so close to closing. Then we were given food that looked nothing like your instagram posts, looks thrown together, uncooked roast potatoes, no chips and the steak was over cooked and pale. Not worth the £65 bill at all, completely different standard of food from your Instagram pictures, very disappointed. Emailed complaining a short I didn’t want to make a scene, but I have had no replies to my email after 3 days.

Very disappointed, I made a booking online for my partners birthday and our first night out since our daughter was born and wanted somewhere different and also special so opted to drive the 45mins to go here. On arrival there was a very loud band playing and the girl asked if we were there for the jazz night, we were a little confused by this and just said we had booked a table online and we were asked to choose a seat, we opted to sit at the other side of the restaurant because of the band. Unfortunately the music (although not offensive in any way, just not to our taste) was so loud that we couldnt hear each other talk with the exception of the 15/20 mins they were on a break. The venue itself is lovely, beautiful setting and was extremely quiet with only 3 other tables occupied while we were there and a family outside. It was such a shame that the music drowned everything out, the family who went outside only did so as it was so loud indoors and they had a baby. The staff were very helpful and although it was a very limited menu the starters were nice. I had the burger which I enjoyed but I had a side of macaroni cheese which was dry and not very cheesy at all. My partner was very disappointed with her taste of scotland platter. 8 small slices of salami, 4 triangles of cheese and 4 sliced of smoked salmon with 2 slices of bread, 3 oatcakes a small pot of chutney and about half a stalk of celery and small bunch of grapes. No butter. It was £23.50 and in no way worth that at all. We ended up paying and leaving earlier than we had wanted but we couldn't even talk to each other. I paid and the bill came to £80, I was expecting it to be fairly high but not that much. We left and on the drive home my partner asked me what the bill came to so I told her, she was also surprised and got out the receipt, shocked to have been charged an extra £20 for the jazz night!!!! Never in my life have I been charged anywhere for entertainment let alone when I haven't been told about it, nothing when I booked online or on the confirmation of booking email, the first we knew was when we got there. What made it worse was it wasn't even worth my while by that point driving back to question it etc as we were too far away. Very very disappointed as it spoiled our evening out my partner was quite upset about what should have been a lovely meal for her birthday and our first time out on our own since having our baby

At the time we dined, a reservation really wasn't necessary. Plenty of free tables. The service was friendly and the food was mostly very good. Between us we had two Sunday roasts (absolutely superb), one fish and chips (batter was too soggy but fish was good), and one BLT Bap (very good). Would definitely come back, and we would all go for the Sunday roast. Menu is a bit limited, but what is offered is very good overall.

Preis Leistung zu teuer. Lachs Entreé etwas lieblos serviert. Fleisch ok. Aber war leider gefroren. Eiweiss Rückstände im Sud. Tolle Location aber man könnte mehr daraus machen.

My husband and I drove from Aberdeen, with our dog Olly, to have our 1st wedding anniversary meal at Mac and Wild and we we're not disappointed. The staff were lovely both on the phone and when we met them in person. The food was something else, my steak was cooked to perfection and was the best I've ever had. My husband had the VeniMoo burger and literally salivated all the way home thinking about how good it was. Thank you for making our first wedding anniversary one to remember. Imogen, Chris and Olly

Love the drive up there with the beautiful scenery. The food and service is amazing. Another top attraction there is the tasty deep fried Mars Bar dessert. A must have!

After hearing fantastic things about Mac & Wild at Falls of Shin we were extremely disappointed with our visit to you yesterday. On arrival, and in general, staff were uncoordinated. No staff were there to greet you or show you to your reserved table. We were visiting with our baby and had requested a high chair which I had to ask for again. After ordering, predominantly from "the counter" section of the menu, our food took 45 minutes to come to the table. There was no explanation given as to why we were kept waiting. The food was distinctly average. I also ordered a "happy meal" from the kids menu which included a mini sandwich. What I received was a large filled brioche bun which an adult would have a hard time getting their teeth around, let alone a 1 year old. Surely staff should have made me aware this would not be a suitable choice for my son to have for his lunch. On leaving, no thanks or goodbye's were given from any of the staff. Such a shame, a beautiful setting and great activities for kids ruined by badly trained staff and so-so food.

Loved the restaurant decor, food was great, wine delicious. Was disappointed to find out we had been charged for the more expensive wine but served the cheaper one. We questioned this and was told there was no button on the till for the cheaper wine. We were also the only diners in the restaurant all evening, a table of 2, so can't really comment on atmosphere, as we had a private dining experience. Anitger reason the bill should have been ccorrec. We felt also that the sauce for the venison topside should have been included and not charged at an extra £2.50. The food was cooked very well though, we loved the chair blankets as a nice wee touch and the wine was delicious, even if we were over charged in the end.
