You can tell the Platters is one of the best of it's kind for sea food when tables are reserved. We were lucky enough that a table for two was cleared for us by the very busy and profession waiter. Our order was Lemon Sole and Haddock, fresh from the sea that morning and a 275ml of Pinoi Grigio and... More

I visited this restaurant about 15 years ago with an old business aquaintance of mine for lunch and it was brilliant, so when we had to visited Plymouth for our daughter 30th birthday I decided to seek out again. The ambience is not at all pretentious; very much like a eating in a fish and chip shop actually (no insult... More

A uniquely decorated restaurant. It's trying to emanate the look of an mermaid's cave maybe. The fish served is fresh and locally caught. The lunch menu is particularly good value. My partner and I ate for just over £20. The speed of service is good and the size of the portion of chips served was large.

Had a lovely evening here, with very wonderful food and great service. The portion sizes are rather large, so be careful when you order - bring your appetite! Would love to visit again, the staff were so welcoming and accommodating too - very good at dealing with my food allergies.

Very cheap meal deals. Staff very freindly. However portions on small side ( you get what you pay for i suppose) and if you get the 99p deal you have to have a side order over your chips i.e gravy curry sauce etc. Not good when you have picky children who insist on plain chips, so you actually have to...

Called here for takeaway fish and chips. The fish was quite bland and quite greasy. I have had worse to be honest.

We ate here twice during our holiday in Plymouth. On both occasions, the food was superb and incredibly inexpensive. The clam chowder, garlic mushrooms, plaice fillets, and fried haddock were all excellent. The wine list is sensibly short and the Sauvignon Blanc was really good. The seating is comfortable, although not luxurious, and this is not the place for a... More

Once again Platters did what Platters do well; fresh great tasting fish, great service and the wine was quite acceptable. It was a quiet weekday evening. Often we've had to sit close to others (but that is irrelevant).
