Was craving some good fish and seafood for dinner and came to Plato after seeing it here as a good rated place. For those of u who haven’t tried it yet, GO HERE! GO HERE! GO HERE!!! We shared the fish platter of which the muscles and clams were my absolute favorite!!!! 2 of us had the tuna steak, and there was also the salmon dish and fish pie. Happy to have gone early, as we winged it not having booked a table ahead of time. They took us in with a smile and the rest is in our bellies..... errrrr history!!!! Sorry, no pix cuz we devoured everything before I had a chance.

The venue for our daughter's graduation family dinner, Plato lived up to its billing. We were treated to excellent service in this slightly quirky harbourside restaurant, where the three course set menu has a focus on the fresh local seafood.

The portions for all courses were very generous, yet beautifully presented and a bonus for me was the on-site brewed pale ale, which meant more bubbles for the girls.

Overall a very enjoyable evening, along with I suspect, quite a few other very proud parents.

Our large group booked in here for lunch and were given the upstairs room with it’s own bar facility. Cramped in on a very warm day with windows that only partially opened soon became uncomfortable but the rear fire exit door was able to be wedged open which helped considerably to lower the temperature. The lovely waiter did offer to relocate us in another room downstairs but would have had to set it all up. He coped very efficiently on his own attending to our orders for drinks and menu selections that everyone thoroughly enjoyed and made up for the surroundings. Decor is dated with the appearance of being in an op shop - desperately needs a makeover. Go there for the delicious food and great service.

We had a lovely dinner at Plato. Dishes are delicious and the staff very very kind! Our waitress was the best! We had our baby boy with us so she brought him toys, was nice to him which meant that he was happy and enjoyed the dinner with us.
He loved the seafood chowder and the paua.
Child friendly, nice concept and lovely food.
Thanks Plato!
