Great place with quality food. The ceviche is absolutely stunning with fresh local fish. The seafood chowder really is a stand out and you can see the popularity with the locals on this dish. The only thing I would fault is the menu insanely HUGE and it is quite overwhelming when you want to order if you don't know what your wanting.
Stopped by for brunch while we were at the markets nearby. The kitchen is the building located right beside the farmers market. We had a table outside which had a nice view of the stream and the markets. It took a while to get the attention of the waitresses but once we did we were able to order. I tried the vegetarian which was quite nice. They did, however, forget the crumbed eggs so they were sent on a separate plate. It was a nice mix of flavours and textures. Sister had a cabinet cake and that took longer to come than the kitchen food. We also had to wait a while for the hot drinks since they had a backlog which we weren't aware of. We had to get the drinks for takeaway since we had already finished our meals when the drinks came out. There were a few hiccups but the food and location are quite nice.
Delicious, the crab and prawn cake entree is excellent. Beef Wellington cooked very well, could have had a bit more pate but still very good. Deep fried mushroom yum but quite rich, probably best to share. Friendly service without being intrusive.
We popped in here after looking around the Saturday markets... big and spacious... was getting busy but lots of staff around, friendly service... great big yummy menu selection and we saw plates coming out that all looked very delicious. We started with 2 drinks: Jar-garita & Berry bourbon iced tea-yum The we ordered brunch salad and avocado on toast... great presentation and very delicious..
My last post was about the Matakana Village Farmers Market and I said in that post that I’ll share about the place we went for brunch which was the Matakana Market Kitchen. This place is underneath the Matakana cinemas. We chose this place because it was the closest to the market and we were lucky we managed to get a table as it was a busy morning.
