Fancied fish and chips for lunch but wanted to sit in somewhere so tried Platters for the first time - we will certainly be going back. Shared a whitebait starter, haddock and chips for me, cod and chips for him plus a beer and a cider all for £34. Really good fish and chips with lovely batter (not greasy at... More

This is a must stop everytime my wife and I visit out UK friends. One of my favorite items on the menu is their fish stew. The stock is tasty and is also loaded with bits of the local seafood. The fish and chips are excellent, as is the crab salad. Certainly not a fancy place, and the booths are... More

The food was nice but the restaurant lacked atmosphere especially for a Saturday night. Service could be more professional

Stopped in the takeaway section whilst enjoying a stroll around the Barbican. The chips were the best I have ever had. Regret not going here before. Had onion rings which were huge they were lovely though.

I eat here often, always good. My wife doesn't particularly like it, so when she had prawn and crab salad for Boxing Day lunch, it only confirmed her worst fears. The minute prawns were barely unfrozen and the crab out of a tin. She complained at the £12.95 dish but was told it would be more expensive if fresh and... More

Well situated on the Barbican. Delightful small restaurant serving local fresh fish with daily special catch. Prompt service by very efficient and friendly staff. Wine list a bit limited

A big family favourite in Plymouth. Fantastically fresh fish, beautifully cooked,with the best chips ever and fabulous tartare sauce. A bit cramped perhaps but lovely staff and a great, unpretentious fish eating experience.

I was with my wife and my son looking at menus for lunch in the Barbican area. The menu at Platters caught my eye, there was a recently vacated table at which we were cordially seated. Drinks were served with no delay whilst we made our choices from the extensive menu. The timing of the arrival of the food was... More
