The setting at Plume is spectacular and we chose to go with friends to celebrate a special birthday, as we had in the past. My friend ordered chicken curry.... that was the description, no details. When it was served it was not only full of fresh coriander, it had a pile of it on top. She hates coriander with a... More

My Wife and I had lunch in Plume about three weeks ago and we were delighted with the service and the food quality. We dined there today, it was busy but the service was still excellent and we had the 5 course summer tasting menu and it was just awesome. The quality and flavours are a must to try, presentation...

Our friends booked here on Grab booking which had a restricted menu (3-4 choices per course), but this didn't matter as there was still good variety and the food was excellent, service this time (we had been another time) was also excellent. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful experience at Plume from the moment we arrived until we left. Upon being seated our waiter brought us a complimentary glass of bubbles and wished us a happy anniversary which was a lovely suprise. We also recieved a dish of lamb harrisa with Strawberry compote compliments of the chef which was incredible. We had the lamb... More

We went there for lunch and from the moment we arrived the staff were very attentive, this was matched by some amazing wine and the food was faultless.

Been to this restaurant several times over the past couple of years and I have never been disappointed. Friendly service, great food and an extremely lovely setting for this popular place.

We didn't have a reservation on a busy Saturday but a table inside was found for us and we enjoyed excellent friendly service, a delicious venison risotto with local Syrah followed by an excellent sticky date pudding. As we left we were tempted to buy some bottles of Syrah and ended up with a box of six! The lunch cost... More

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.
