Fresh, fun and old school

Had the pleasure of visiting Cafe Platia for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I am spoilt by so many restaurant choices in the area, and it has taken some time to get here!

Food tasted like leftovers from the day before. 2 people, average size lunch and 2 glasses of house wine = $92. I almost fell off my chair when I got the bill.

Lamb cutlets (5) juicy and tender. Whitebait (loads!) crunchy and flavoursome. Terrific menu and specials. Wait staff very helpful. Book or you mightn't get a table.

If you fancy the taste of Greece then try this one. Has everything on the menu that Greek food has to offer the meatballs were good along the whole fish, if you're in the area then this restaurant is worth a visit.

Three times and each time excellent - so tender and tasty. I have been solo, the family were eating their own meals but nothing was a problem. Portions are generous and twice I struggled! I have also had a special request to have an order filled to take home for a sick relative; it was graciously done for me. I... More

I had an amazing time at this terrific little restaurant in Camberwell. The food was plenty, tasty and presented well. The best part of the service was that the water they serve was cold! The owners were very obliging and nothing was a problem.
