Sunday Lunch

Fantastic meal today. Great setting, friendly staff, brilliant food. Barman does a mean cocktail, the Bloody Mary's were perfect, something a high end hotel struggles with. Girls loved their Espresso Martini's, had seconds. Recommended for a great time.

I frequent the matakana farmers market on Saturday mornings. The food offered in the markets are so pricey that I prefer to sit in peace and quiet and enjoy the good food of MMK which is not so different from those bought outside. There is free wifi. The food is wonderful. My fav is the baked Camembert served with grated... More

Delicious food for both adults and children... And a great location as well. Excellent Bloody Mary cocktails, and the crispy eggs were wonderful. Can't wait to go back again!

We went for a light lunch & shared 2 absolutely delicious salads which had generous amounts of interesting nuts & seeds for extra crunch. Outside beside the river is magic so I'd prefer this venue for lunch rather than dinner when it is dark. The food & wine were excellent but the wait staff though very pleasant & friendly, need...

We were glad we followed the advice of a local and booked a table for dinner. MMK was fair humming. We enjoyed good service from a knowledgeable waitress, but it was the food that made the evening. The bread in a flower pot was a good choice to start. My wife enjoyed her pork and I loved the rack of... More

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.
