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.

Ok, so we go all the time, but its been about 6 visits at least since Ive reviewed Plume. We went the week before last for lunch as usual. Imbibed quite a lot of wine as the grab one vouchers start you off with a glass. the neighbours we went with paid as normal. We spent a total of 40 dollars over the 75 for the voucher. My Hapuka was divine. My dessert divine. Everytime we go the display of food on the plate is changed so even if I have say my fav Salmon, it looks different with some added twist. Unfaultable as usual. Wonderful service, Sebastian is brilliant. Great outlook in the covered porch area. LOVE IT STILL! might just pop in today....seriously. I think I will...

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!

Most enjoyable lunch. Large varied menu for all courses and wine. Very pleasant service and surroundings. We sat out side by choice although raining were very warm , heaters, and clear plastic drop down sides.

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 hot - the sun being magnified by the plastic blinds - would sit inside if we were ever there again. Great spot - a must-visit if you are in Matakana and love good food.

We stopped for a really yummy meal there and i will be back next time. It was quiet that day, and our service was very quick and the staff friendly. i purchased beautiful bread to take home and enjoy the next day as well.
