We have been regulars to MMK over the years, (we are Warkworth locals.) Out of the last 4x visits 1x has been outstanding, 3x not so good. The issue is not the food or the wine but the organisation of the restaurant. Put simply it needs 1 a boss and 2 some staff training. MMK is not there for the... More

Matakana Market Kitchen was recommended to us and we are so glad. We enjoyed a very delicious meal. Beautifully prepared and served. The location along the river was perfect, especially after a rain, as the air was fresh and clean. Of course, the food was the reason we would return when we are back in NZ.

Both times we really enjoyed the food , and liked the friendly young team. Room is lovely, good views of the river. The place is well run, good fast kitchen brigade,... More

We had a brunch and returned on a different day for a lunch at this restaurant. The setting is fantastic, right beside the river and such a lovely view. The food on both occasions was outstanding. The presentation was grand and the flavours lived up to what your eyes where telling you! This coupled with the experience of a market... More

MMK has one of those menus that are so good that it becomes a really difficult decision to decide what to have. Hubby and I went for Valentines dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Hubby had the mussel entrée special and I can honestly say it was the best tasting mussel dish I have ever tried. And there... More

We enjoyed a beautiful meal here recently. The waitress was very attentive, the food beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The only thing which let this establishment down was the girl behind the bar who took the money for the meal, she needed some advice on Customer Relations (a smile, please and thank you would have been appreciated).
