You enter through a crazy door with lots of marine bric a brac. OPen that door and your are greeted by a buzy, busy restaurant. A warm smile of welcome by Rose, (she is probably the BEST service person I have ever had, she should...give lessons on how to be a super front of house). The food was amazing and even though the place was really busy, we didn't have to wait long. Scallops, and squid was our first entrees, followed by Fishpie (!!!), blue cod and salmon fillet, all cooked to perfection and came beautiful and hot. We didn't take much convincing for dessert and had creme brulee, the brownie and lemon cheesecake. The wine and spirit list was extensive. LOve you guys!! We will be back. Thanks so much for a lovely evening.More

The blue cod was well cooked and well seasoned. Was pleased and surprised with the sie of portions. Felt like real southern hospitality. Thank you.

This was recommended to us by a former Otago uni student and was well worth the walk over the tracks. The restaurant was warm and inviting with a wealth of retro treasures on display. The food was plentiful, fresh, full of flavour and good value....Overall we loved the genuine family feel, the variety of seafood and relaxed dining experience.More

The food was cold when served and did not taste good. Could not finish my meal. Will never go there again.

This place never fails to impress. Great atmosphere, excellent food always beautifully cooked and always a bit different. Best service, relaxed but always professional. It’s a must do for dinner in Dunedin.

Quirky eclectic surroundings. Waiter was lovely and efficient. Food portions were big and rustic. Was a bit expensive.

We asked about gluten free when we sat down but then got so excited about the menu forgot to specify gf for hubby when we ordered. Realised we got non-gf dish when it arrived but it looked so good I said I would have it...alongside my order. They quickly got hubby the gf version. When we left they totally refused to let us pay for the extra dish. Amazing. The dish was the whole flounder in caper and butter sauce. Sensational. My other dish was the kingfish special of the day with a berry sauce. Very good dish. But to be honest, the flounder was the star and I would have happily paid for it twice. Highly recommend Plato for menu, decor and terrific staff.More

These meals are huge and far too big to eat but they are very yummy and enjoyable. Great friendly staff who are very helpful. If you like big meals then go here.
