A piece of Tala Bay

Tala Bay's trademark *only* restaurant. The prices are quite cheap next to neighboring hotel restaurants. The location is beautiful, right on the marina. The Penne Arrabiata is usually what I get, and it tastes pretty good!

We had lunch here recently. The location is very good, on the marina in Tala Bay, beautiful setting. Food was average; Caesar Salad and a grilled cheese sandwich. Service was fine.

There aren't a lot of options in Tala Bay for food and this restaurant was the cheapest among the others in the area. We had pizza twice and drinks there twice. The staff were really helpful, however the food was slow to come out. We asked them if there was a store in the area and they said just a... More

The restaurant is inside Talay Bay Marina, nice place to chill out for dinner. The food is average and mi price. Don't expect top top dishes. You can choose from local food to pasta and pizza.

I had the chicken burger, was a huge burger full of fatty creamy sauces that you hardly taste any chicken in it. I will give it another try next time before making up my mind of the overall experience

Wonderful food at a fair price, friendly staff and lovely location. Having tried other restaurants available, Platters is the only one I'd go back to! Family friendly also.

Excellent food and good service. We were promptly seated and served our drinks, wine was the right temperature and the ice bucket for other drinks and water was routinely changed/filled. Salads and appetizers arrived quick and were very delicious, I would personally recommend the Fried Jalapenos and cheese sticks, with the Caesar Salad. Although they serve a lot of fresh... More

This restaurant has the most disorganised and unprofessional Zombie like staff. Last night I had the worst dinner experience of my life. Lots of servers were chaotic ally running around but there was no one to do the seating or clear the tables (I tried to reason with four of them). After usurping a small table ourselves and after many... More
