Have visited numerous times and the food is always excellent and lots of choice in the menu. Popular amongst locals and visitors and pays to book first.

Dined here with another couple and had the plates to share. Amazing flavours in every dish. Definitely worth dining here during your Matakana visit

Food and drinks excellent. Waiter very, very patient with guests who wanted one more drink long after everyone else had left

Ive been here a few times now, & never been disappointed by the food or service. Overlooking the river with the bubbling water caressing the large rocks, in a peaceful setting is just beautiful. The market kitchen is a lovely restaurant that caters for the occasional diner or groups & functions. Sit inside or out, depending on the weather. And... More

Hubby had the flounder which looked ok. I had the prawn and scallop cakes which were bland and so pasty they just stuck to the roof of your mouth. Any prawn or scallop that might have been in there was minced up so tiny I couldn't taste it so may as well have been non-existent. Extremely noisy on Saturday mornings... More

We always have a yummy meal here. The menu is huge, so many options to choose from! My daughter can be pretty fussy but always gets the Banana and Nutella Pancakes (did I mention they come with smashed maltesers and ice cream?) and told me yesterday it's her favourite place to go for a meal. The service is always friendly... More

Ate here a couple of times during our visit to Matakana, 4 of us had mixed reviews on the food some really good but sadly crumbed fish badly overcooked. Its a nice spot but still think a bit of work could be done on the consistency of the food

This is a gorgeous spot for a yummy brunch or snack or lunch. Nice location and a good organic selection on the menu. I found the service a little slow and there is no true 'host' ... but overall it was a nice experience.

Have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. A diverse and interesting menu that promotes local fresh produce and wines so good for the community. Service is friendly if a little laid back. Fabulous options for gluten free people who get a whole menu to themselves! Book ahead as often busy. There's outdoor seating for fine days by the... More
