The restaurant was barely half full but we waited over 40 minutes for our food. When it arrived it was very good. We enjoyed the art work on the walls but the rest of the décor was tired. They are lucky to have such a lovely view.

This spacious neighborhood waterfront cafe showcases Devonport's old world for new age morning cuppa lovers. The view alone is worth the stroll

I didn't actually choose to visit here, an NZ friend of ours suggested to meet here for a catch up. I'm glad we visited. It was mid afternoon, so not busy and therefore we had decent service. The menu was varied but much the same as many other places we have visited locally. The food we had was tasty and... More

My husband and I went to Devonport for a nice day trip from Auckland and we ate at the Platter. We absolutely loved it! It had a nice view of the water, and the food was amazing. I'd recommend the soup of the day (chicken orzo) and the Cajun chicken sandwich. Food was delicious and ambiance was bright, clean and... More

We ordered the fish n chips (snapper) and the Seafood Chowder which were both fantastic. Great service with a gorgeous view back to Auckland

We had walked past this cafe on a Sunday and it was packed. We went on a drizzly Wednesday morning and were not overly impressed. We shared corn fritters, which were a bit stodgy. Not as good as the Torpedo Bay Cafe. One flat white which my MM said was a bit grainy, I had a double short short black... More

How good was that!? Good food. Good service. Good view. Good value. We had the Spanish deluxe and Mushroom & chorizo. Flavors were exploding and celebrating in our graceful mouths. Devonport also turned on the best sunny day. Cannot have any better brunch. Great experience.

Nice view and relaxed outlook. But over priced for what you get. Photos don't do this justice. Not as good as it looks . Better to eat in Auckland and just visit here for coffees. Rest of Devonport appears a tourist trap. Nice for a walk and coffee for an hour or two. But that's about it.
