We had a great meal at this lovely venue. The staff were great, wine great and the ambience surrounding the restaurant was so relaxing. The food presentation and taste was "first class" and far exceeded what we thought we would get for a lunch. I would and definitely will go back again.

As always we chose Plume as the dining venue for a couple of life's milestones. Upon entering the restaurant we noticed that the decor and seating arrangements had changed which is one of the great things about Plume as it keeps things fresh and interesting. I had requested a table by the window which was dependent upon how many large... More

We are so dreadfully sorry to read this! Yes most definitely it should have been informed to you that the dish was "very hot" thus avoiding this mishap. The matter has been taken up and reinforced to all staff. Please do contact me offline so that we can talk about this. Do wish you had informed us immediately as we... More

We went to Plume armed with our Grab One voucher to celebrate a birthday. It was our first visit and we were seriously impressed. Well worth the drive up from Orewa. Neither the food nor the waiting staff could be faulted. The rural setting is lovely with outlook across the gardens and vineyard to the hills beyond, We recommend you... More

We discovered Plume on a Grab One deal voucher and we were impressed. Our deal included our choice each from all main meal options, a glass of wine and a dessert. IT WAS DIVINE! Our meals were both so delicious, we kept the wine flowing and initially extend out to sharing an entree as well so we were really indulging!... More

Great venue for a Golden Wedding! Many guests (from out of town) commented on the beautiful location, great food and service. Portion sizes were large with the set menu and well presented. Staff all very helpful and accommodating, going the extra mile. Thanks Plume, a great day had by all!

Fine food and fine wine, with prices to match. Unfortunately the waitress was irritatingly insincere and repetitive, and kept using the royal "we" and I had to try hard not to let that colour the enjoyment of my lunch! It was a beautiful winter's day so the waitress seated us in the semi-outdoor area in full sun. We were awfully... More

Went on a Grabone voucher and I must say we had a truly delicious meal. Everything from the wine, starters, mains and dessert was excellently prepared. A great meal of the highest standard comparative if not better with any Auckland.
