We had a lovely evening here. Yummy food and would definitely eat here again in the future. The service was a little bit of a let down but the food was great.

Was not expecting to be blown away - but wow. Loved every mouthful. Restaurant was super busy but they managed to find a place for us. We had not made a booking. Staff were obviously busy but they were all happy and very helpful and made us feel welcome.

Worst service I've experienced. I heard good things about this place, so went there for brunch all the way from Auckland. It was raining, so was quite busy. A waitress told us just grab a free table, but everytime we try to sit down a waitress come put a reserve sign on it. And finally we got a table, we... More

Tried dinner here after a long day. Very nice staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. Good specials at a fair price served pretty food with great flavor. Unusual clams and linguini flavored by a touch of chorizo sausage.

We stopped off for brunch at the Matakana Market Kitchen on a busy Sunday at midday. The laytout and atmosphere of the restaurant were delightful, but even better was the can-do attitude of the staff to accommodating us even though they were jammed to the gills. The crowdedness didn't affect either the service or the food: both were excellent.

We had lunch here beside the river. The food was fresh, different & delicious. Only negative was that the service was excellent at first but it appeared they forgot we were there so had to go in & ask for extra things eg coffee. It's certainly worth going to.

A very pleasant lunch with friends after the Saturday market. The service was amazing with nothing being a problem for our enthusiastic young lady. A few different things on the menu such as crispy hens eggs.

Went here for brunch. Have been previously a few times and always enjoyed but not this time. My eggs in big breakfast type meal weren't runny. Crust on bread was so crunchy I couldn't cut it, food Wasn't overly warm or freshly cooked and came out very fast as if all pre-cooked / it wasn't busy. Hubby wasn't impressed with... More
