However there service was terrible in terms of service . There was a ANT in the middle of my meal. I usually don't complain but my wife thought I... More

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

Wonderful Food with a very busy atmosphere which says it all for its popularity. Only slight blemish was the length of time it took to receive our drink order. Fantastic food and wine menu.

Great spot, the food was pretty good, but prepare to forget any idea of time when you walk in the door. We were waiting for 25 minutes before eventually waving someone down to take our drinks order. Food arrived quite promptly after that, but then we were really rudely told that another party had booked the table for 1pm so... More

Just amazing! The service was wonderful. The views were beautiful. The serenity was surreal. We felt like we were miles away from Auckland and even talked about buying a lifestyle block close by it was so perfect! The food was well presented and very VERY well priced! Between the two of us we had a glass of wine (generously poured!)... More

I attended a lunch with 12 ladies for our end of year social. Every dish that appeared was beautifully presented and was enjoyed by the whole group, no complaints whatsoever. I thoroughly enjoyed my dish of pasta and a nice glass of red house wine. The menu is extensive, plus blackboard specials made it very difficult to choose so will... More

We are frequent eaters at MMK. We have never been disappointed with our food or service. If we are taking someone out for lunch then this is our go to spot. MMK is a primo location, parking is easy and the food is awesome!!.

I was at a loose end one day last week and decided to treat myself to a desert and a lovely glass of red wine at MMK Restaurant. I had a table outside overlooking the river. It was very peaceful and the wine a desert were great. There were magazines available to lone people like me. Thank you MMK.

We ate both breakfast and lunch in this wonderful cafe set right on the Matakana River which is just brimming with bird life. Meals were creative and delicious and as one of our party was gluten free, we particularly appreciated the many interesting gluten free options in addition to their extensive standard menu. We sat outside for breakfast (such a... More
