Such a shame Platinum has missed the mark. Chirnside Park would benefit so much from great food in such a thriving community. Platinum suffers from an identity crisis, the food is not terrible but it is overpriced. Although they have worked hard on the decor I couldn't help but feel slightly ajar. Hoping my experience was a once off I have tried now on three separate occasions to no avail. Platinum misses the mark and leaves a void. Best still head toward the city for good food.

Truly excellent. An early Sunday dinner. Pork belly and calamari entrees to die for, and then came the mains - duck and eye fillet. Presentation of food was superb, quick service, and generous servings. Everything was fresh and the service couldn't be faulted. After two hard days of DIY renovations we were absolutely delighted with the perfect meal. None of the midget servings you encounter in many places and the quality was high calibre. There is no other restaurant in the area that can match it - and we've been in the area for a looooong time. Highly recommended.

Open for Breakfast, lunch and dinner this restaurant offers great food at a very reasonable price.

excellent breakfast menu that will fill that gap until lunchtime.

Lunch menu is varied and tastful. Start with a tasting plate of local goods and select mains including Calamari and Tender steak to mention a few.

Great meeting place just a little west of the Chirnside shopping centre.

This restaurant is an excellent place to have a light lunch a business meal or a celebration. I have done all of these. Haven't done breakfast yet, but I will!
Under the old management the food and service started well but failed near the end. But no more I am glad to say as there are few restaurants of this standard on the gateway to the Yarra Valley. Prices are good, menu range offers wide choices, with good wine list, food is excellent, service is attentive. The restaurant is full whenever I have been there. I would recommend it. I am a local who has travelled widely and hopes this place is here to stay for many years.

Attended on 25/2/13 with a friend whom I share a birthday with, quite busy for a Monday but the level of service and attention paid by our waitress was terrific, pumpkin rissotto with feta and rocket, beautiful, my friend had the steak which was cooked to her perfection, presentation was excellent, overall a lovely evening.
