We have dined here before, and were very impressed. This time was even better. Although we were using a discount voucher, we still got the same excellent service and delicious food as everyone else. The Mushroom Risotto with 2 lovely pieces of Venison Osso Buco was to die for! And the bones still had their marrow - good for me... More

We had a great experience here. A group of 7. None of us could fault the service, food or wine, the chef popped out at the end which was nice so we could congratulate him & his crew. Fine dining but also friendly and relaxed

Excellent service and food. Great grape juice if you are looking at an alternative to the wine. Location, views, and facilities very clean and comfortable

Thank you, David for taking the time to put down this review - we appreciate the same! Our Grape Juice is made from wine grapes - syrah and malbec - and is a rich and vibrant juice- likened to "liquid dessert"! Glad you enjoyed it. More

We came here in summer and again this winter. First time with a group of 12 and then just 4 of us. Both times we have vouchers for the 5 and 6 course lunches. Both times the service was excellent, the food was wonderful and we have a very, very nice time. Thank you

Stunning food with fantastic infusion of flavours. Excellent a la carte menu and the recommended 'dishes of the day' were sublime. Good service, premises was warm and the wine memorable. Will be back again!

We sat in the covered verandah on a gloomy winter's day. It was warm the view was stunning over the vineyard, the lovely gardens and the hills and the food - excellent. Forget those over the top priced Auckland venues with their rip off wine lists. Here, every course is beautifully presented , the food is excellent and the wine... More

The food was excellent, service friendly but not very good. Were seated for at least 10 minutes before we had to request a wine list. Besides this, it is a restaurant well worth visiting

Girls lunch to celebrate 3 birthdays and the start of a weekend away. We had the 2 course Grabone offer and were very happy with the service, meals and setting. Between us we had the Osso bucco risotto, chicken curry, sticky date pudding, creme brûlée and mango panacotta. Favourite was the risotto and creme brulee. Fab service and would love... More

A group of family and friends (14) thoroughly enjoyed their lunch at Plume. Food was excellent, atmosphere was very good, and staff very good and prompt with any requests. Will certainly be going back sometime soon.

Description
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.
