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

We visit here almost every week and it never fails to delight. This is the best cooked fish in the world with the friendliest staff. Always ask what is the best fish of the day. The chips are crisp and golden and the salads fresh and light. there is a reasonable choice of mid range wine and a real ale... More

Always eat here when I have 'non Plymouth' visitors, great seafood and the service is one of the most relaxed and welcoming we have ever experienced. Would always recommend this restaurant for a lovely meal, great value for money.

Have eaten here before a few years ago and had good memories of the place, thought to give it a shot again. Ordered fish and chips for the kids which was decent and delivered quick. Ordered calamari which was so so. Garlic prawns also 5/10. Plaice was just plain bland. No taste whatsoever...not eating that again. The crab salad was... More
