The menu is fairly standard for brunch fare, but with a touch of Middle Eastern scattered throughout - from the Turkish yoghurt with the muesli and Mediterranean scrambled eggs, to Turkish bread and halloumi.

The look is spacious, with dining areas and an outside courtyard. Artworks are well placed around the walls. The main attraction, of course, is the sea view and we appreciated the waiter seating us on the same side of the table, looking out to sea, rather than on either side of a table where one person gets a view of the dining room.

The coffee was just right.

We ordered the halloumi bruschetta with grilled tomatoes, spinach and scrambled eggs on ciabatta ($18) and eggs benedict of poached eggs, spinach, grilled tomato and salmon ($17.50), both cooked to perfection and well presented.

The service was friendly and professional.

Overall Platter is a pleasantly relaxing venue for a meal, with its marine outlook. And the neighbouring art gallery is definitely worth a look while you're there.
