The Stables Restaurant Matakana

Open Wednesday-Friday from 4pm, Saturday & Sunday from 10am

An empty shell of a building sat in the midst of the beautiful Matakana country.

The ambition and inspiration of chef Daniel O’Donnell was to fill this empty space with creativity, comfort & style. The Stables Restaurant & Bar began late 2010. 4 years on The Stables is a local go-to, a home away from home at the Matakana Country Park. It showcases the picturesque scenery of rural New Zealand offering an À La Carte menu with an attention for every detail.

The Stables only use the best of local produce unique to the area including dry-aged beef, free range chicken, fresh fish & seafood from Leigh and organic ice cream from OOB.

Unique recipes over decades & stylised cooking methods make this menu compelling from entree to dessert. Not afraid of diversity, The Stables also offers dishes such as wontons & cerviche as well as traditional gourmet Fish Fry on Fridays embracing the social side to dining.

Compulsory to any kitchen, freshly baked bread, homemade desserts & gourmet pizza are always present. It also boasts the best local burgers in the country & a great menu for the kids.

The bar offers a extensive range of local, New Zealand & Australian wine to accompany any of the food options available. A large range of spirits, beers & ciders are also available as well as some unique cocktail recipes to try.

From a glorious summer afternoon on the lawn to a cozy winter night by the fire, The Stables is the destination!

See you again soon.
