Beautiful restaurant location and scenery. We entered and was taken to our table. It wasn’t busy when we arrived but started to fill up soon later. I had pre-booked and asked for a nice little area for my partner and I as it was my partners birthday. We were seated by the window and it was a lovely spot, as it was quite intimate. The lights were dim and it was very lovely as we had some privacy. We were offered some seared beef. Not sure of the name but it was lovely. I ordered the • Okonomiyaki (Japanese Pancakes) • Meatballs of the day • Vineyard Trio My partner ordered • Vension Pie • Crispy Duck Leg • Sticky Date Pudding Wine • Runner Duck Passion I loved my Okonomiyaki. The combination was beautiful. The Meatball of the day was made with coconut cream and noodles. I was really looking forward to this but it really didn’t please me, however my partner liked it. I felt it was missing something and wished I ordered something else, but this was my first experience so it’s not stopping me to come here again. The Vineyard Trio was a lovely dessert. The gelato was delicious, and all flavours worked well. My partners Entree, Main and Dessert was all delicious. However I felt that his main which was the Crispy Duck Leg, didn’t seem like a main. The flavours were lovely but didn’t seem to be enough filling for the wraps. However his dessert was delicious and they had written happy birthday as requested. Overall my experience here was lovely. The waitresses and waiters were all lovely and provided great service. We were also approached by the head chef which was a quite nice of him. Never been visited by a head chef of a lovely restaurant before so it was nice to talk to him. •Food 4/5 •Service 4/5 •Ambience 4/5
This was my second visit to Plume and I was dissapointed. I took my father in law for lunch as a special treat. The mains were good but the dessert (pavlova) was below average and overpriced. There were a few other issues that I found very dissapointing for a restaurant such as Plume. The table was dusty which I found odd since one would think that they wipe them at the beginning of a service and after tables are cleared. It was a thick layer of dust that I dragged my finger through. Most of the wine on the wine list was not available which was very dissapointing. Our mains were served but we had to ask where our sides were and had to wait for these while our mains got cold. The ladies toilets were dirty and full of cobwebs. I was embarrased to have chosen this restaurant to take my father to. I don't think I will go again. The restaurant responded to my feedback in their Facebook page denying that the wines were not available and made excuses for the dust and cobwebs saying that they are rural and that they were very busy. I will take my money elsewhere.
Was able to be seated at lunch without a booking. The vegetable curry was great, lots of vegetables, mild spiciness, came with salad, rice and papadams, decent portion size. Menu is affordable (curry was $27, glass of wine was $10), wines are good. Very enjoyable.
