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.

A busy Friday night but very friendly staff and chef (who visited most tables during the evening) . I did not try the curry , but I suspect it was great based on some of the comments from the next table to us. Good quality food at good prices

Had a 5 course meal with family from UK last weekend. Every single course was delicious and well-presented. The variety of food and flavours, not to mention their wine was impressive. The view from the covered garden area was stunning and the staff were efficient, professional and very friendly. A wonderful experience.

Excellent degustation meal; the location is beautiful, and the restaurant is very nicely presented and the staff were extremely friendly. The waitress provided excellent and professional advice on wine selection; really liked that the Head Chef came out to talk to us at the end of our meal and was very friendly...the meal was beautifully presented, very tasty, and the wine from the local winery excellent in taste and for value.

The team managed to squeeze us in, and even provided the perfect table - tucked out of the way, with plenty of shade. Food was to die for, wine (& beer) was excellent, staff were brilliant. Can’t recommend the place enough, and that’s even without factoring in the most stunning location!
