The fresh quality of the produce, amazing flavours, presentation and the attentive service keeps us coming back.

We live in the Yarra Valley and Paper Plates is definitely worth the trip, it doesn't disappoint.

This was the second time we'd been to Paper Plate and totally happy with both times. The service is outstanding and the food is amazing. Have already put it on Facebook as the place to go.

The food was excellent but the main dishes took a long time to arrive at our table. We ordered four mains with meat or fish to share among four of us and because the other two members of our group were vegetarian they each ordered a vegetarian main. One of the vegetarian dishes arrived 15 minutes before any of the other mains & the second vegetarian dish arrived well after the other mains were finished. In fact, we had to ask for it twice. This meant that the two vegetarians were eating at a different time from each other and from the rest of the group - one finished their meal before the meat mains arrived and one didn't get to eat until everyone else had finished.

Wow! Had an awesome dinner at paper plate for my wife's birthday. Met the owner, Dan who was extremely accommodating and took us through the menu, which apart from maybe 3 or 4 items, was completely gluten free! My wife suffers from celiac disease, so she was pretty excited. We had 2 entrees and two mains and every dish was amazing! Atmosphere was relaxing, clean and modern with a trendy feel. Meal was also very well priced for the excellent quality we received. Will definitely be back!

Ask the owner to select our meals to share. His choices were excellent. The dishes were full of flavour, and the service was outstanding.

Excellent food, service and prices. It was a little quiet but we were there for lunch on a public holiday Friday. Can't wait to visit when I'm next in Melbourne.

We enjoyed our three different plates, except the coconut ice-cream. When we told the waiter (boss) about it, he said he would not charge us for the ice-cream. He would also tell the chef who made the ice-cream. This is a very generous gesture.

Tasty food and generous portions for the price - would recommend this place to friends. Nice atmosphere and lighting too. Staff were friendly and pleasant. Just a few little kinks in customer service would have made this experience even better. Booked a table for two and was showed the table by the waitress, right next to the other full, very close table. When I asked if we could sit on the other table for two spaced out I was refused. Why? Didn't time it but we sat for maybe an hour crammed next to other diners with less privacy until the other tables for two were taken. Not sure if service is formal or casual. Table service then expected to get up and pay at the counter at end. Noted the prominent tip jar but chose not to tip when the bill is not brought to the table. Finally received annoying message from Open Table claiming I did not honour my booking and had to waste time replying that I did. I clearly stated my reservation when I arrived at the restaurant.
