Food was great. They have the food sorted. Lunch menu had a good selection. However, three people ordered fettuccine. When they arrived one bowl had considerably less than the other two. When the waiter was shown the huge difference in the portion sizes he just said "swap plates then"!

Late lunch on a wet Monday in September and place was pretty well empty - interesting range of choices on the menu, and all three main dishes we had were very nice. Good range of seafood. Manager had just returned from several weeks overseas and was very friendly, as were the stdaff who served us. Would definitely go back!

Went for family lunch on a Saturday. I really enjoyed my meal of seafood pasta however my mother had the calamari & I found it below average, calamari is a hit & miss meal to order & Platter missed by far. Husband had the Moroccan salad which again was very average. Had the french toast kids meal for my toddlers... More

I've been to Platter twice now, both times for brunch on a Saturday. The location is fantastic, the food is very good on the whole, but the staff need some training! One staff member in particular is so indifferent (bordering on rude) that it spoils the whole experience. Like the previous correspondent said, you don't feel welcome, more of an... More

Service ok nothing to make you feel really welcome and would be the main reason for marking as I've done. Coffee was good. Had poached eggs on toast...pretty hard to get this wrong. Really like the multi grain toast and they cook it well just the way I like it. It wasn't average but wasn't very good...just good!

We went for dinner .A great selection of small plates - tapas - meat balls were delicious and a huge portion. Chicken breast was tasty.The restaurant needs some heating for the winter! Staff attentive. Nice location on the waterfront.

Sensational brunch after a walk up North Head. The service was friendly and efficient and the Eggs Benedict and Haloumi/scrabbled eggs were terrific. Highly recommended.

Yes it's a lovely view over the bay ... But it's the food that you come here for and ours was quite ordinary .. Dry scrambled eggs and little or no thought as to presentation. Coffee pretty average too .. Perhaps a place where there is no view but more attention paid to the food would be better?

We spent a day in Devonport and walked all the way to the Naval Museum. We passed this restaurant on the way and figured on stopping for lunch on the way back. The staff were friendly and prices comparable to other restaurants around Auckland. We sat outside with a beautiful view of the water. We are big fans of chowders... More
