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.

Worth a visit

Plume is a nice option in Matakana and we really enjoyed our meal. The only letdown was that we were asked several time whether we we using a voucher... A bit annoying to know there was a "deal" when we were paying full price.

Once we go past the "do you have a voucher" questioning (we didn't, we were "full fare") things got better. Food was good, Terrine perhaps a bit dry however their rendition of Peking Duck was great. Good decor, had a private dining room that looked like it would be a nice spot for a group meal.

This restaurant is in a very nice location about 45 minutes' drive north of Auckland. Our recent visit was the first time my wife and I had been and we used a GrabOne voucher for lunch. The first surprise was that we had three different explanations of what we could and could not order from the menu from three different... More

Great location and fantastic food. Wine tasting was excellent - fabulous wine and great service. Would thoroughly recommend. They also have a great kids menu so we might have to pop back with the kids. Thanks so much for a great experience!

We had never been to Plume but had a voucher so thought it would be a great place for my son's 21st treat. His wife and my husband were with us. From the start - booking was easy. I had to change the first date and push it out - this was done with minimal fuss. I changed the booking... More

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. We were greeted at the door by a charming gentleman who gave us the option of dining inside or out. We... More

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
