I booked last minute to go to Plato for a family birthday. They bent over backwards to help me with a cake and candles and played along with the surprise, which was very nice of them.

The food was amazing. The fish dishes were cooked to perfection and the lamb was awesome as well.

The place is funky and retro without any stuffyness of a "posh" restaurant. But the quality was 5 star standard.

Best restaurant in Dunedin and probably the best I have been to in NZ.

Will be making this restaurant a regular.
Well done. Fabulous.

Had a nice breakfast, but nothing out of the ordinary. Venue was cute and quirky. Service staff were friendly. No gluten free bread was a disappointment.

Went to Plato's on a weekday evening on a work farewell do. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious no complaints from anyone from our group which comprised of two vegetarians. Only slight niggle was that menu made no mention of whether there was a gluten or dairy free option... A very enjoyable evening, will certainly take visitors there.

The guy who served as was great. Food was nice but it didn't have the wow factor.
If you like sea food then it would be a great place to eat. I think it might be the best service I have had at a restaurant.

It is great when restaurants continually provide high quality food and service. A great maitre'd doing his stuff and ensuring it all works seamlessly. An excellent range of fish and a tasting platter with a little of everything. A unique atmosphere as well.
