Recommended by Matakana Country Lodge, the MMK is in a small shopping precint. Parking is relatively easy and on arrival it was packed. MMK serves good quality bistro food with plenty of choice in a vibrant atmosphere and it was lovely to discover such a place in a small town. Decor is modern and there is an excellent selection of...

The MMK is hidden from the main street of Matakana close to the markets and set along the banks of a stream. It was great to find a fresh range of GF and DF cakes on the menu and the coffee was great. The rest of the menu looked very tempting too!

This was a deliberate choice to go to a beautiful restaurant along the riverbank in the evening. The food and wine was really enjoyable. We liked the humour of our wait staff. He was kind enough to take our photo. We started with camembert, which oozed all over the bread- yum! The pork belly was beautifully cooked. I had trouble... More

We have been here for lunch and dinner a few times over the past few years and always find the food of extremely high quality and good value for what is provided compared to other restaurants. We visited over the recent Christmas holiday period for lunch - arrived late at about 2.30 but nothing was too much trouble for us.... More

Have been here several times before in the last couple of years and have always enjoyed the food BUT this time was disappointed. The funky chips were run of the mill, appeared to be out of a bag and not well cooked, the sticky pork ribs were bland, the meat had the consistency of that reconstituted sausage you get in... More

We went for breakfast and managed to sit outside under an umbrella and the view was of the rambling stream. The food and service is excellent, cheery and friendly. I had the baked avocados and it was a different but delicious breakfast. Also recommended it the mince on toast. I have also been for dinner here, and it is probably... More

Lovely setting and very extensive and interesting menu. Unfortunately seemed to go on a day when service was absent. First we had to ask for menus, then had to go to counter to order after 15 mins with heaps of staff walking past ignoring us and then had to put up with v rude counter person insisting that I give...

Lovely location, nice food but terrible service! Messed up our orders several times with no apologies then tried to charge us at the end for items we never received. Probably wouldn't return here.

Visiting matakana farmers market, we decided to have breakfast at MMK. It was quite early and there was only a few other people, so service was quick. The young waiter was very friendly, and made sure we had all that we needed. The food was also very tasty, although could have been a little hotter for my liking. The cashier... More
