Fresh tasting food. Large portions, definitely worth the money. Love their mussels and cream sauce, must try. Great experience will be returning back.

A very friendly busy, simple fish restaurant. The interior decoration is a bit strange but don't be put off. A very friendly reception made us feel at ease immediately. The range of fish offered was excellent - between us we had Brill, Gurnard and Haddock. All were excellent and the chips were perfect. Really delicious tartare sauce - the only... More

Absolutely amazing food, never had fish cooked so well and so simply with none of the frills that a lot of the modern restaurants seem to have, just fresh fish cooked on the grill, easy! Best place if you're a fish lover. Always have new fish on the specials board and you can tell the fish is fresh as a... More

I love places like this: it is established enough to be self confident in its output. It doesn't need to try to attract people with fussy, pseudo shabby chic interior design or trendy avocado-based dishes and green juices (although there is a place for that). It just is what it is: unpretentious, honest well cooked fresh fish. There's no need... More

We have just come back from a visit to Platters and would like to say what an excellent meal we had. We had a clam chowder (which you don't often see that often where we live) and crab sandwiches with the BEST chips ever! We are planning on going to Plymouth again if only for a visit to Platters

If you're looking for posh decor and trendy menus then this is not your restaurant . This is a traditional quirky establishment in the heart of the historic Barbican Plymouth. I don't mean to boast , but feel well qualified to write this review as I am well travelled , and have eaten in many fine restaurants , over the... More

Ordered chips and curry sauce to go and they were amazing! Chips were just as they should be, crispy and fluffy and the curry sauce was amazing! Only 99p as well!

As the national dish should be. Perfectly cooked fresh, local deep fried cod and haddock, abundant chips and peas, quickly and efficiently served. Everything to love about this place. I reckon it's where Rick Stein and Nathan Outlaw go for a night out! Always busy, which is a good sign, and at lunch the chowder is to die for, but... More
