We asked a waitress what time they finished service and she said 10 pm. We got there at 9.40pm and were refused food. The Indian we went to was excellent. You either serve till 10 pm or you don't.

The food was brilliant, albeit a fish restaurant it did have selections for those who did not like fish and for those who were vegetarians. Value for money and service with a smile

You won't be sorry you came here. We were happy! Faced with lots of choices, all good, our friend who lives in Plymouth directed us to eat at Platters. This tiny restaurant runs like clockwork as is its staff works together like a pit crew for a car race. The moment a table empties, it's cleared in a flash and,... More

As always Platters Restaurant is the place to go for a great meal. The Seafood Paella and the Scallops are excellent. You have to book or you are going to be disappointed. Can't wait to be back in Plymouth for another great meal. See you soon.

For its modest, even slightly outdated (in the most affectionate way) decor, this place does some of the best seafood I have ever had and for a reasonable price. This is a family run restaurant that lets the food do the talking. Possibly not one for date night, as it's garlic heaven, you can order the freshest seafood cooked with... More

We had a fantastic meal here last weekend. My husband had Dover Sole which was an absolute bargain at the price. I had Haddock. Both were cooked to perfection, and the portions huge.. We got a table with no problem, although in the past we have had to wait a while, but no wonder when the food is this good.... More

We know we're always going to get a good meal at Platters. We went there on Friday and as usual the food was good and loads of it, and at a reasonable price, with a good atmosphere. Always an enjoyable night.
