What a great place to go for dinner!! We shared the Antipasto Platter, followed by the Seafood Platter and were truly satisfied. Thanks to the staff, too! They were always aware of our needs and really pleasant to chat with. Thanks for another great experience.

We were so happy to hear Plateau was doing first table for lunch now. My husband and i ordered half a dozen small plates of food and it was all so good! Fish sliders, chicken, calamari, eye fillet steak, curly fries..we couldnt eat it all Service was impeccable, couldnt fault a thing. Think this will be a weekly date for my husband and I.

Quality of food was alright. Not superb, but not bad either. With little change, food could be tastier. For example, beetroot bruchetta: need a bit More salt and honey to make it sweeter or calamari:dipping sauce great, but batter was grainy. Loved the little outside seating area and service was good.

We were seated a table away from a table that stared with one baby and then joined by four other infants and their mothers, babies cry and infants scream and that is normal so we moved to another area around the corner as it was too windy outside. However we were stopped by a waitress who informed us that area was closed during the day. It was hard to understand why and surely under the circumstances she could have given us a concession. She wasn’t mindful of the situation or she wouldn’t have seated us there in the first place. Hence we didn’t stay past our main course as thevibe was ....,. Disappointing.

We took friends from Auckland, they adored Plateau. They said best steaks they've ever had. The 4 of us had 3 courses each and none of us could fault any meal. This is our 3rd visit and its just as fabulous as the previous 2 visits.
