“Too Grand for Takeaway”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I believe you have to be a "someone"to get in over the holiday season. We visited out of season and could not order take-away pizza which should be standard at a holiday resort, in my opinion.

I am terribly sorry to hear that you were not able to order a take away, that is certainly not our policy in season or out, we always try to satisfy our customers not matter what. I will definitely look into it and thank you for reporting the problem. I have to also address you last comment, on having to be " a somebody" to get in during season. We have a very strict first come, first served policy, not matter what size your bank account or if you are blue, green or pink, we look forward to having all creeds, colours and bank accounts in our establishment. Perhaps its some "somebody's" complaining when they do not arrive in time to get a table!

“Good Food”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Good position with great sea views. We visited twice this week, and both times the restaurant was busy and buzzy. Surroundings are a bit dated, but good service and great Italian food. We had lovely salads, pizza and pasta. Reasonably priced wine, nicely chilled, and by the glass you get a large measure. They also seemed to be doing a roaring trade at the other side with take-aways. The second evening it started raining really hard, but the blinds were quickly and efficiently pulled across - no big deal. Nice waiters too.

“Tasteful combinations”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

I love the view from the deck. Very lively atmosphere and even better food. Different pizza/pasta combinations that are delicious. Waiters are slighly slow..but it aint a train smash

“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

In the past i have visited this restaurant a number of times at different times of year. I really avoid during high season because they really dont care, there's people queueing so what does it matter for customer service? Went there 2013 mid January, like a similar review earlier, food was the wrong order and the service was terrible, lazy and disinterested despite the place being virtually empty. Perhaps thats why it was largely empty in January? Food can be good but service often a let down. Better places in Plet for sure.
