Yes, Plato is a bit hard to get to on foot. You have to cross over train tracks on viaduct with somewhat incidental footpath. Yes, the decor is eccentric: who knew there were so many 70s era coffee carafes left on the planet or so much kitschy Bric-a-brac and figurines. That said, the tables and chairs are simple and clean.
But the food and service were exceptional! We had the seared yellow fin tuna coated in dukkah and the pan fried gurnard coated in kelp. Also some of their own summer IPA and a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Dessert was a stunner: house made scoops of mango sorbet, cherry ice cream, and passion fruit ice cream on a bed of homemade cookie crumb topping.
The wait staff was personable and helpful and the food came quickly.
We’d go back in a heartbeat if we weren’t leaving tomorrow.
