Meals are very small and your choice of drink is wine or a beer. No spirits. Wait staff attentive compared to a lot of places. I had the Pork, very dry.More

The lunch we had at Plume was very good, from the waitstaff, quality of food, attentive service and the great weather (we are very lucky with that). We would return to try the other dishes adn wines.

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.
