We visited for a casual lunch, it was difficult to choose just what to have off the menu as there were many exciting and different choices. The coffee was good, nice and hot and with perfect taste. The staff were casual but very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Thanks. You can choose indoor or outdoor seating, we sat at a big... More

Lovely setting, looking back over the harbour. Enjoyed the food, good portion sizes and very attentive staff. Will definitely return on future trips to Devonport.

Davenport is worth a visit, even if just a few hours, and catching lunch at Platter, on the waterfront, is the way to go. Food in NZ tends to be excellent, and this pace does not disappoint. They serve breakfast late through lunch, which is great for kids, but, perhaps even better, they have amazing salads. Prices are reasonable for... More

We bought my 90 year old mother here for brunch and people here really looked after her. Great food, coffee, lovely staff and great Service - all was good. Really recommend this place to all and sundry.

I found this by accident and am so glad I did. Platter is more of a bistro, with a limited menu, but of fine quality. I thoroughly enjoyed my light lunch, attractively presented - delicious hummus, tzatziki and beet spread, washed down by a yummy cider - whilst enjoying the view of the harbor.

Skip the tourist traps and walk down past the library towards the yacht club. When you pass the sea scouts, Platter is on the other side of the road. I had salt and pepper squid. It was a generous portion and delicious for around $20 and I ate it over-looking the sea with an ice-cold beer. Will be back. It's... More

Platter was recommended to my friends and I by the driver on the Devonport Explorer tour and it was the perfect place for lunch. Great views of the water, great food and great service.
