Situated just an hour's drive from Auckland or Whangarei, Plume, the vineyard restaurant, Matakana is a must visit destination on any Matakana wine or food journey - we believe we are all about fabulous local New Zealand wine and produce which together can celebrate "culinary diversity." Plume is a small town, rural, rustic restaurant with friendly service from locally employed staff. It is a great change from the starchy fine dining service of a big city like Auckland yet is in a class of its own.

Busy and popular restaurant

Have eaten here a few times. Wait staff are polite and professional. The food is thoughtful, well prepared with good presentation. Have had several dishes from the menu, and all have been good.

Went with friends for a Sunday lunch get together. The venue is super with great ambiance, modern and immaculate. The service was very good and perfectly timed. The wine was great. However it was the Food or rather cuisine that elevated this experience to Fabulous. I recommend to anyone who truly enjoys beautifully cooked and presented food from a well... More

This is our most favourite restaurant in Auckland/North Auckland. The food is always excellent and the service top notch! We love coming here for lunch and usually take our clients or friends. They are always of the same opinion - well done Plume. Compliments to the chef who always delivers a beautiful meal which is beautifully presented. Thank you and... More

We have been to Plume several times and it's always great. Food is delicious, imaginative and beautifully presented. My vegetarian teenage son can always find something good on the menu. I have to finish with the passionfruit cheesecake which is exquisite.

This must be the sixth time we've been here. The food, service and the atmosphere are all top notch. Value for money and that's why we keep coming back!

Bit of a late review- apologies! Had a beautiful meal here as a birthday gift from my brother! So lucky! Had an amazing dinner and the service was great. Only thing I would change is there was a bit too much salt in my vegetarian roulade and the lights were a bit bright and that made it a little less... More

Had a meal and wine experience that can hold its head up high in any company. The food was very well presented and true too its description. Service from the wait staff very helpful and when asked to suggest a wine match for two different mains hit the spot perfectly. Only slight blemish would be that we would have liked... More

We were a party of 15 who had our booking at another winery cancelled a couple of hours before we were due to go. So we rang Plume and found them very accommodating both on the phone and in person. Food was all served at the same time and everybody was happy with it. Salmon was perfect. I was talked... More

The setting of the restaurant is very pretty, but only if you sit outside. We especially asked for a table with a view when we made the reservation, and were told by the lady taking reservations, that ALL tables had good views... We were very disappointed when we faced a wall. (We were seated inside facing the kitchen). The general... More

First to arrive for lunch on a chilly Saturday. We sat outside on the well heated terrace. The artisan breads were excellent, as was the fried tofu - an interesting and delicious treatment. Service was slow to begin with, but improved as more folk arrived. Plume is a great place to pause
