Fantastic for breakfast

The menu is extensive, includes locally sourced produce, and you can sit outside to eat in the sunshine. The service is not lightening fast but then the general pace of life encouraged me to take it a bit easy. Had bacon eggs benedict, a bit of a favourite of mine, and these were really good... read more

Went in again the other day and had the vegetarian with bacon- omg it was absolutely delicous, huge and i couldnt eat it all. Coffee was delish. We just cant rate this place any more highly and I know it gets a bad rap over Christmas because its so mentally busy but we visit midweek and always have a great... More

A busy restaurant and can be overwhelming. A very busy menu and unnecessary so. My dinning companion and I booked for the early sitting at 6pm. Sat 25/7/15. Yes a mid-winter dining experience. The log fire was burning. My main course was pulled pork and salad. Crispy and tasteful but it got the better of me. The entree before hand... More

We went and had not booked so we had to sit on a high table. The food was very very nice and we enjoyed every bit of it. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere as well.

Matakana Market Kitchen is located in the little village of Matakana and shares a building with a cinema. Nearby is the well heeled beach resort of Omaha, and those factors together with the fact that it is a good place to eat and nicely located on a stream mean that bookings are essential. Indeed, the trick is to book WELL... More

Superb menu and magnificent food to match. Service good although we were a little late for our booking so were asked to be finished by a certain time. Waited a little for first course to come but then quite quick to next course.

This cute little restaurant is always packed on the weekends. Not only is the atmosphere really amazing but the service and food is worth the wait if they are busy. Nestled up to a small stream that runs to the ocean this place has both inside and outside seating. I ordered the Kale & Mushroom Rissotto which was perfectly creamy... More

We stopped in for breakfast before leaving. Nice little spot with a view of the creek. Mince on toast was good and the Eggs Benedict was too I am advised. Coffee was great. Would recommend.

Each year we visit the Market Kitchen whilst in Mataranka on a ladies weekend break. This visit was very disappointing, we waited 25 mins for coffee, which was cold when they arrived, a further 20 mins later our food arrived, also cold. We sent the food back, when the replacements came out these were cold. One meal was missed off... More
