Romantic outdoor terrace

very good bread, a nice outdoor terrace behind the proper seating for romantic dinner and ambience. It overlooks a brook with ducks swimming by. The summer evening brought daylight until we were finished with our dinner.

Good menu with nice specials. If you find the wine list a little short ask to see the Vintry's from upstairs.

Stopped by the restaurant for brunch after visiting matakana market. It was busy, cosy and warm inside. Had to make ourselves noticeable to get a table. Food was great; we ordered seafood chowder and Nutella pancakes. Coffee was average.

Have been here for lunch and it has always been delicious. This was my first time for dinner. And the meal was as usual excellent. The wait staff were very friendly and accomodating

We went to MMK for dinner and I had high expectations based on recommendations. The place was packed, and we arrived to a table luckily booked by phone. After a little difficulty with the French waiter (not understanding his accent), we settled down to a full three course meal. The brown paper tablecloth was primed for drawing on, but we... More

Went for a birthday dinner with a bunch of friends and had a great night. Interesting menu with plenty to choose from. Service could have been a little faster with drinks orders - maybe we just needed to slow down a bit so they could keep up..... Lovely restaurant by the river and great menu from breakfast til dinner -... More
