A small family lunch on a Saturday. Food great and service very good but not a particularly quiet place to eat, bordering on 'cafe loud'. The menu was excellent and all of the choices made were beautifully prepared and presented. The Sangiovese wine was also...More

On a rainy day, Plume was the ideal lunch stop. A buzzing restaurant that still delivered a great wine tasting - followed by excellent lunch. All combined with friendly and efficient service. Highly recommended.

Lovely atmosphere staff and food. The pork belly was the best we had ever had! The wine selection is also very nice and the waiter helped us make decisions on which would pair well with the food we were having. Would definately eat here again

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.
