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.

We had a very nice meal, the duck leg and pancakes were yummy! Platter to share was also very nice.
Service let it down a little, staff ranged from professional to very abrupt.
We sat outside and the setting was stunning however I ended up 3 times with drowning flies in my wine, to which the waitress was very unhappy abt replacing.
Gorgeous setting though, fairly pricey but food great.
Worth a visit

The location and setting was gorgeous for a summers day lunch - unfortunately the Scallops let it down. They were served by weight which was fine, but when they arrived they were each about the size of a 20 cent piece. Being so little they were overcooked and the rocket salad they came on was slightly bitter! Not the best value for approx. $36! The wine though, was absolutely lovely. The service was informative but lacked confidence and polish. After having heard bits and pieces about this restaurant I had expected more.

We just enjoyed a great dinner at Plume on a rainy evening of the long weekend.
The food was fantastic, although I'm not sure the scallop dish was worth its price, particularly when compared to the excellent duck breast dish my husband had. The kids pizzas went dined a treat though, as did the chocolate mousse and passion fruit cheesecake. It a shame hater weren't more people at the restaufant. I'd definitely go again if I travel back to Matakana.
