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.

This was the second time I have been to Plume, and once again they have made our dining experience worth the drive from Auckland for. The food was delicious, well-presented and not overly fussy. The service was impeccable – polite, attentive yet unobtrusive. We even had Farida (the manager) come and say hello, despite me having cancelled our previous booking... More

We really love the location and views however the views are hard to see when seated in the middle of the restaurant by the till (especially when other tables with views were available). Our waitress seemed confused as we had to clarify a few of our orders several times. The food was overall nice but very small portions for the... More

Beautiful fine dining experience, we've been here twice and there will be another visits. Love the foods (we tried 3 courses) and they have the best grape juice ever! The people are lovely too. i always recommend this place to family and friends.

Had a superb meal there on Saturday night with my wife and another couple. We had a mix of entree's to share which we really well prepared. Vietnamese spring rolls were delicious! I then had the venison which was beautifully cooked and my wife had the duck which she loved. We had the Runner Duck 2007 Syrah to match, and... More

We have just moved to Snells Beach and are having a lot of fun trying out the local restaurants. Last Sunday we went to Plumes for lunch and it was fantastic. The food is absolutely divine, I have not had such a delicious meal like I had in a long time, I had the lamb racks and they were cooked... More

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
