A pretty disappointing experience to be honest. I reserved a table for 5. But there was no table for 5 waiting for us. Waitress instructed me to an extra drag a chair from a nearby table. My husband ordered a beer from the menu which was not available. He chose a 2nd beer, which was also not available. I chose a glass of Rose which was also out of stock. Ambience was terrible. No napkins (just paper serviettes) or table cloth. The lunch menu was disappointing - not much to chose from. I was given 2 different menus (I checked with the waitress who told me one of them was old and I had it by mistake). The prices were that of an expensive restaurant, but nothing about our experience matched the expectations of an expensive restaurant. The waitress, while very nice, was obviously new and hadn't been given much (if any) training. She had to check everything with the chef (maybe 4 or 5 different questions we had). Ordered 1 kids meal, which got "forgotten" and came out 5 minutes after our meals. You really need to replace the chairs - the white plastic vinyl is flaking off - stuck to my legs and was all over the floor. I have no idea how you had good reviews on dimmi! We only visited because of Accor membership, but certainly wouldn't bother going back sorry.

When I arrived there was no one at the front counter. Two staff served a table in front of me and just walked off. I was forced to go over to the bar and was waiting whilst the barman served someone. One of the staff walked past so l got her attention and went to the counter. I explained that I had been waiting and she and the bar man had ignored me, and she was a little curt (no apology, spoke in a clipped voice). Very poor service to start. They took a long time to take our order(only 3 other tables) but were quick with the meals, drinks etc. when we were ready to leave, there was no one around. I rang the bell on the bar twice until someone came over from the reception. Overall service was poor.

The food was unfortunately very disappointing. The rib eye I ordered was very tough and resembled a budget cut of meat from a local supermarket. The shoulder of lamb my wife ordered was dry and very uninspiring. I did expect a lot more from your type of establishment.

Really great food in a nice quiet location. Once extra staff came to assist it was a perfect lunch.

Because of the busy season with X-Mas parties, my boss and i booked early and were the first table seated for the night. Meanwhile the staff were busy seating a 60 person party from QUT whcih may of had some influence on our service We ordered 3 wines off the menu. All of these 3 were unavailable. We ordered 1 beer which was not available also. We were told to make our order before the larger private party ordered. This felt as though we were being hurriedly put through the whole dining process. We were even forgotten about by our waiter and a second waiter had to provide us service. Overall, very disappointed and would advise others to stay away.

We went to Mc Mahon restaurant for breakfast on Australia day. We ordered 6 meals from the limited menu, after 45 minutes wait only 5 meals were served, another 15 minutes wait and nothing happened, just after I asked the waitress, she went into the kitchen and returned to inform me that they have run out of salmon!!! and offered to change the order with bacon!!! by that time everyone else on the table had finished their meals so i had to cancel my order. I really expected someone to come to our table and apologies for what happened, no one showed up! I had to ask for the manager till the waitress reluctantly showed me his room. I received 30% discount on my bill after talking with the manager but ended up not having breakfast and being embarrassed for my poor choice of restaurant. I'm Accor Plus member and this is the only membership that I paid for as all of my other memberships with hotel chains like Marriott, Priority hotel reward, etc are free charge but I feel that I receive better value from my free memberships. I regret signing up with Accor Plus as the main reason I signed up was for the discount for restaurants and now I'm so disappointed with the service I received in McMahon that I'm not going to risk getting embarrassed again for choosing another Accor restaurant.

I've been 3 times in 4 weeks to McMahons and enjoyed the food every time. My only criticism is the pace of the service for a lunch time. Service people are very friendly and helpful; its just the odd delays in meals. Aside from that I have enjoyed my dining experiences and will be back.
