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.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Four of us were in Matakana for the weekend and our friends had a Grab one voucher to use at Plumes. Our waiter Juane was superb!! We had Runner Duck wine and that was superb. We could not fault our meals but it was the service and the fun we could have with Juane that made it a truly memorable night. Thank you to the Team at Plume. We will be back!!

“A real treat for us”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Our daughter gave us a "Grab one" deal voucher to Plume as a gift. We really enjoyed a very special dinner in a warm, relaxing and beautiful venue. The wait staff were very informative and helpful about their menu. The service was excellent and our meals wonderful. We both enjoyed the duck breast mains. A couple of minor criticisms: is there any reason why you can only select 1 x cheese for the cheeseboard? (we were given a choice of blue, cheddar or (?) .. yet the portion size served was 2 x very generous pieces of just the 1 x variety) and, as a tip for the (junior) wait staff: you should really wait until the diner has enjoyed at least a couple of mouthfuls of their main before enquiring if everything is fine with their meal. We are looking forward to returning for lunch.

“Excellent Experience.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great atmosphere and stylish decor coupled with a breathtaking view of the neighboring vineyards make Plume an unparalleled venue in Matakana.

On par with the scenery, the food is faultless and the staff are friendly and efficient, which makes for an incredible dining experience.

I would recommend Plume to absolutely anyone.
