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.

Quite rare to find a restaurant that has the chef come to your table to check how your meals have been, and also rare for us that not one of us had any complaints with our meals. Wonderful atmosphere, and looking forward to return.

a change of chef has breathed life into a well established restaurant in Matakana. The flavours are rich yet tangy and well balanced. We shared a number of dishes which didn't throw the staff or the chef. We started with the chicken curry and they split it into two dishes for us so it was easier to share. One doesn't... More

My wife bought a coupon degustation meal as part of a short birthday holiday from Auckland. After reading the mixed reviews we were a little nervous, but needlessly so. The restaurant was well designed and decorated with a great indoor/outdoor flow. The views of the gardens and terraces added to the great environment. We had 6 courses and each one... More
