Having been to Plato's before, we had high expectations of the service and food, it had been 18 months since our last visit and had read some worrying reviews on Trip Advisor. Well we should not have been worried, the service was excellent, and the food sublime. We both had pork belly for our main course and it was utterly delicious. A special mention must go to both the young waiter and waitress on our Saturday night, everything was done with wonderful charm and smiles to match.

We enjoyed our meal in this restaurant, although a bit pricey for what it was. Good wines and service.

This restaurant was described by a taxi driver as one of the best restaurants in Kirby Lonsdale - I can certainly see why, the food was great. We phoned to book on the Saturday afternoon for the Saturday evening and they told us we would have to be sat downstairs, having not been we were unsure what to expect. We weren't let down. The food was of a very good high standard, I had the scallops for starter and my girlfriend the pate, both full of taste and I recommend the scallops for any seafood lovers! Great main meals of chicken and paella. Would visit again!

Went here recently with familly for an evening meal. The restaurant is modern and very nicely decorated. We were shown to our seats, drinks ordered and menus distributed.

The service rapidly goes down hill when the orders are taken. We ended up spending two hours for two courses. the waiters / waitresses never once checked if eveything was ok, and we had to try and attract their attention for additional drinks etc. At the end of the meal depsite asking for the bill, and another 15 minute wait, I had to approach the front bar, where both waiting staff seemd to be "busy", and i had to ask for it again.

Overall very disapointing service spoiled a nice meal. the Rib eye steaks were very nice and the Meatballs from the Tapas menu were excellent. However again, when we ordered desert (Ice cream and a cheese board) the wait was far too long. No explanation of the cheeses and too few biscuits as well.

Staff let the restaurant down for me.

Managed to squeeze in without a reservation, which was pure luck as this restaurant is obviously very popular. Smart, chic setting - perfect for OH's birthday. Quite a long wait for the food to arrive, but this just gave us more time to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Staff were all friendly and polite. Overall would definitely recommend - but make a reservation first!
