I was lucky to attend a wedding at Plume Restaurant. The restaurant is quite big but still maintains a cosy feel and the view is breathtaking. Try to go for dinner and watch the sunset while you sip the Runner Duck wine. I particularly enjoyed the Rose and Bubbly ! For the main course, I had the Lamb Rump with... More

We spent a lovely meal as a family here and had a good range of choices with matching wines from their vineyard. Highly recommended if staying in the area for a upscale dinner. Food was delicious and wine too.

A splendid fine dining experience with a Hollywood type setting for a wedding. The venue was perfect, the flowers gorgeous, loved the rose of Runner Duck winery and must have had at least four glasses. As for the food it was a veritable fine dining experience with delectable morsels in the entree and the dessert. I had the lamb for... More

My second time in NZ I had to stop by Plume Restaurant. The food is quite exquisite. I enjoyed the lamb, and went back the next night for a wonderful wedding on this property. Really enjoyed the mains and appetizers as well as all the canapes and bubbly served. What a great location for a wedding combined with a gourmet... More

We received a voucher for the Go Summer 6 course tasting platter. Beautifully presented, delicious and a wonderful experience. The estate Rose was very drinkable. They made one of the meals gluten free upon request, and it was equally as good as the other meal. Lovely country surroundings, peaceful and quiet. Near Matakana, so we went to the markets first...

My spouse and I were regular patrons of this place for more than 3 years. The very first time we came to Plume for a dinner because of the GrabOne deal in winter 2013. It was already dark at 6 pm and rainy, and while driving to Matakana from Auckland we asked ourselves why did we need to go so... More

We have been there three times over the past year most recently this week. We went for a lunch but with the intention of booking their private room for function if we enjoyed it. The positives, the setting is superb, great ambiance, planting and Vista. The food is ok, it seems a bit pretentious and doesn't quite hit the mark.... 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.
