Cuisine


Bringing to you the "Taste of Matakana" At Takatu Lodge & Vineyard we endeavour to express the rhythm of the seasons with a cuisine of vegetables and herbs from our own gardens and other in-season local produce and products from Matakana

A leisurely breakfast featuring housemade muesli, fresh and poached seasonal fruits, local yoghurt, juices and fresh baking awaits you.

And with time on your side, settle in for a cooked breakfast with each day offering something different. You could be delighting yourself with local sausages and bacon, free ranges eggs, slow roasted tomatoes, and field mushrooms. Herbs picked fresh from our garden make delicious omelettes and not to miss mentioning cheeses from our local and national cheesemongers.

 

Whether you dine under the stars in summer or cozy up by the open fire in the lounge during the cooler months, Takatu Lodge & Vineyard offers a unique dining experience.

Our very own gardens prompt our daily menu. Planning day by day picking fresh seasonal vegetables & herbs ensures that we provide a menu that enhances what has been caught locally in the seas that surround the Matakana Coast and the special cuts our local butcher has in store.
