Unfortunately I cannot comment on the food at this establishment. What I can comment on is the kindness of its staff. My husband and I overextended ourselves on the days walk from the ferry to the beach etc. We ran out of water, and my husband implored the kind gentlemen inside to buy water. He wouldn't hear of it, and... More

My 1st ever sweet corn stack, it was served with bacon, olive salsa and (not enough) avocado, very tasty & filling, my husband had a more traditional brunch of scrambled egg with smoked salmon on very high quality bread. We left very happy and full; the restaurant is positioned well, offering a lovely view across the water - the only... More

The food is quite nicely prepared and the portions are large. Very friendly and competent service and lovely owners. However as someone who cares, I simply can’t condone that mineral water and even the salt is imported from Turkey. Flown halfway around the world to a country with perfectly good mineral springs and salt. Even the juice that I wanted... More

We arrived rather late but were served without any problems. The portions were huge and my "Seafood Fettuccini" was the best I had in a long time as the seafood was prominently present on the dish: Scallops, prawns, the works! Only one thing disturbed me: The only sparkling mineral water available in the restaurant is brought all the way from... More

Stayed in Auckland for a couple of weeks and came to this place for several times. Not only because of the wonderful view but especially because of the delisious food. First time I had breakfast was very good, made me come back for lunch another day. Finaly I couldn't resist having a try on the dinner menu. Delightful food, great... More

What a fabulous place to eat and while away the time. Fantastic flavours and food combinations and divine coffee. The views over the harbour are lovely. The service is efficient and friendly. Will definitely be visiting again and again.

On a sunny day, it is hard to beat sitting on the waterfront in Devonport catching up with a friend. Parking is easy, and Platter has lots of outdoor tables, just across from the beach. The menu was interesting and fresh, and the service was warm and friendly. I had the warm chicken salad which was delicious, and a fair... More
