How does it look and feel?
The feeling and ambience of the PLATES Restaurant is of unmatched beauty and is full of tropical splendour. It is situated facing the pool and the guests are always in for a good view! You can even enjoy our outdoor seating spaces whilst you enjoy our mind-blowingly yumscious food or even be seated within our indoor, airconditioned, and contemporary interiors.
Although PLATES is set within the space of what was previously Taprobane, a complete overhaul of the location with a modern palette of white, blue, and copper with a highlight of furniture and fittings blending in perfectly to create the perfect ambience, will make you feel like you’re visiting this place for the first time!


Is it safe?
Safety is and has always been one of our top concerns. The food will not be directly accessible by the guests, a crew of friendly and helpful staff will ensure they serve what you prefer just as you like it. Their smiles and cheer will brighten up your buffet experience and will definitely keep you coming back for more!
With the Cinnamon Care initiatives rightly in place with stringent health and safety measures we ensure that all our guests and visitors are free to enjoy our yummy food safely without any fear or worries.
