Had seen the sign but never ventured into this little gem of a restaurant /bar / music venue. If you are looking for a great afternoon/night out, look no further! The menu has an interesting mix that caters to all tastes. However, the burgers and...pizzas are really amazing. The service was excellent, and the waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, it was a very nice spot to spend an afternoon into an evening. The music is awesome, and you get the chance to support local, which is always a good thing.More

Very disappointing. I ordered a salad and the waitron says... we don't have avo. Can you believe it. The Spar is next door. The staff said they are not allowed to go next door and buy an avo. Poor show Platzz

My wife kindly invited me to lunch at this little gem of a restaurant tucked away off the main roads in Hillcrest. I had the Beef Curry (with salad as I'm off rice!) and my wife had the Chicken Schnitzel with Pineapple from the specials...menu. We were both delighted with our meals which were tasty and well presented! The service was first class and the attention of the manager was subtle and appreciated! Highly recommended for a relaxed meal!More

We had.our year end function at this restaurant. Decor is modern, area a bit small for 50 people. The outside area was beautiful. Unfortunately it was raining so we had to stay indoors. The food was mediocre. Some of my colleagues complained their meals were...burnt. The service was chaotic and disorganized. Overall not the best Xmas function we had.More

We popped in for breakfast on Saturday morning. My wife and I both had breakfast bowls and were very impressed with the food which was fresh and wholesome.

Loved the decor and the staff all very friendly.Play There is a ladies night on a Wednesday 6pm to 9pm ladies R79 INCLUDING A SHOOTER , GIN AND SUPPER ladies dining with ladies.

We have only had breakfast at Platzz, the options are excellent with a wide choice so makes it difficult to decide. The so called “small”breakfast is great, two eggs, plenty of bacon, grilled tomato and a slice of toast for R49,00, just don’t ask for...extras, another slice of toast will cost you R13,00.... I didn’t want the loaf! My husband had the same but had the Rosti, R20,00 extra. The service, is a bit slow but friendly and Management is always visible. It’s a lovely place to take the kids as their playground is fully fenced and parents can keep an eye on them from where are sitting.More

We regularly stop for breakfast in the week but decided to try it sunday with friends. We arrived at 8am anď waited 40 min for our meals to arrive even though we were the only patrons in the restuarant for a while. When our meals...eventually arrived the frittata was cold and the eggs benedict came with bacon instead of ham as requested. As regulars here we will rather try alternative restuarants in future .More
