Why is ce restaurant plâit à nous wrong?

Why is ce restaurant plâit à nous wrong? Shouldn't ce restaurant nous plâit and ce restaurant plâit à nous both be correct?

The verb plaire takes the preposition à. Therefore the construction should read Ce restaurant nous plaît etc. where nous is an indirect object pronoun. Your construction is using "nous" as a stressed pronoun not an object (indirect) pronoun, which is incorrect.

No. You need to move the INDIRECT OBJECT pronoun NOUS to before the verb
