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.

Sunday drive then lunch

My wife and I visited Plume looking for a nice Sunday lunch. We had eaten there previously and were pleased with the experience so thought that a Sunny Sunday might be an opportune time to give it another try.

Beautiful location, lovely view, gorgeous food and a special place to go for lunch or dinner for a special occasion as not cheap but worth it.

This is our third trip here in the last 8 months and I can say with absolute certainty that we will be back again! Not to be confused with Plume Café which is on the roundabout at Matakana Village, Plume Restaurant is a great spot for a special occasion. The food is fresh and, wherever possible, local. The menu is... More

A different location to the Plume Cafe and Bakery which is in Matakana village by the roundabout. Plume Restaurant is rural fine dining (or lunch) situated on Sharp Road next to Herons Flight Winery on the road to Sandspit/ Snells Beach. Mid price mains, very fresh ingredients, home grown fare featured and bread from the company bakery (see above). Plume... More

On route fom North NZ to South, we stopped for a much needed caffeine fix, we came across this cafe and bakery and was then tempted to have a light breakfast. It was superb for a number of reasons. Quality of ingredients, taste, portion, and served hot. The coffee was amazing too. If we are ever back in NZ I... More

well worth the drive from auckland. Great ambience and good food. Young staff look after you well. They also accepted entertainment book vouchers even on Valentine's Day. Try their own grape juice. Will definitely return for more 😀😀

Having lived in the area for some time it was our first venture to this establishment and from start to finish we were looked after and the quality of our meal and experience was superb. We ordered plates to share and everything was... More

We went to this restaurant because it was featured on Zomato. I was disappointed. My partner wasn't, so this is a tale of two tastebuds. We changed our booking to 8pm and were told we couldn't do it. Just before we were resigning ourselves to the earlier booking and about to hang up, the laconic chap on the phone said... More

Surprised to read other reviews here. We had the lunch platter for two and found all of it to be delicious - the salmon tataki especially so and perfectly cooked. Service was prompt and friendly with good wine recommendations from the young German (?) chap. Would like to return for dinner.
