Always Good - Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner

Great place to eat. We have been there a couple of times as a group, as a couple and as family. Always good and enjoyable. Brilliant in the summer months. It gets really busy and the staff are always helpful and have a smile on their faces. Lovely location.

Very slow at bring our coffees to us and the staff seemed to be rather distracted / unhelpful. When we went to get water while we were waiting, there wasn't any water in the jugs provided. However the coffees were very good and my mother was most happy to get an Almond milk Mocha.

We had a really nice mid-winter dining experience. I chose the blackboard Salmon special. It was an excellent choice, lots of flavour and cooked beautifully. He had steak and a pot of chips which he ordered medium rare and it was spot on. Our friend had a pork belly blackboard special and he said it great - it certainly looked... More

This restaurant is adjacent to the cinema complex therefore popular with film goers, thus large groups are catered for thus it is quite overwhelming for couples, not suitable for a quite romantic dinner. It is obviously a trendy place to hang out but the food does not represent fine dining. This is one of the few restaurants my husband has... More

Just had a great lunch. Tasted all five dishes couldn't decide which was the best. Waiter a little on the side, that is better than over the top.

We decided to go to Matakana for lunch on Sunday and found this place nestled down along the river. I had the warm quinoa salad with sirloin and my partner had the fish and chips and boy, both were fanstastic. Full of flavour, well presented and beautifully peaceful. Will definitely return when I'm back home.

Had Saturday lunch and it's a magical spot by the river. Service was efficient, prices were reasonable and serving size generous. Friend had the quinoa salad which was large and tasty, my ceviche (entree size) was perfect combined with a glass on pinot gris. Would definitely return.

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!
