We have visited Plume on a regular basis over recent years and quite honestly the food, ambience and service is faultless. I would recommend to go during daylight to make the most of the gorgeous outlook. The food is of a really high standard. Highly...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.
