Enjoyed a lovely meal at Plume for my mother's 80th birthday. Food was beautiful and well presented. Wait staff were excellent. Just a pity we got a rainy day as it would have been lovely to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings.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.
