A family of 5 had an excellent lunch sitting outside in the glorious bank holiday sunshine. The meze starter and fish and chips were delicious. Prices were very reasonable and service was fine in this busy little seaside location close to all the action.

We pre-warned the Owners of our wish to have a table for a number of family members to 'meet and eat' and once again we were not disappointed. Drinks were served while we waited for everyone to gather, food orders taken, then served altogether fresh and piping hot. Would like to thank the Owners for their hospitality and patience.

Travelled from Surrey to Hastings on yet another house hunting trip & my friend and I were starving ! Desperate for fish & chips we spotted Plato,s .
It looked clean and pretty busy with tables outside in the sunshine ... Perfect !
The lady that took our order was lovely, very friendly and obliging !!
Fish & chips with mushy peas were fab!
Good size portions !!!
They even serve alcohol so we had a nice cold beer with our meal !!!
We felt full & happy .
Well done guys !!!

We took 30 Cadets for a fun night in Hastings, Plato's Café supplied the fish n chips, Wow!!! fantastic service, food was cooked to order so was hot for all 34 of us that ate, thoroughly enjoyable and cannot wait for the next trip with the Cadets.

We recommend Plato's to anyone visiting Hastings, Staff were so attentive and couldn't do more for us! Thank you very much.

Stopped here for a quick breakfast. They had only just opened and setting up but the staff were friendly and pleasant.

The food and drink (I had a latte that was presented much better than I've had in a chain coffee place as well as a gooey cheese and ham toastie) were enjoyed by all.
