Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Shabby chic French Tapas restaurant in the South Lanes. We had been searching for a restaurant that did steak tartare and stumbled across this one !!! It did not disappoint. It was a starter portion , but we were not looking for a big lunch and it was the perfect size . Very tasty and delighted we found it. We saw other items from the menu being served , the croquettes looked good. The wine was unusual in that the white we ordered was cloudy, but it tasted good. The staff were helpful and this is well worth a visit, we will return !!!

Stumbled across this lovely spot. We were looking for a mid-pm glass of wine and bite to eat. Perfect. Sat at the bar, had a carafe of white wine and some small plates that were delicious. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.

Probably ok for younger people with good eyesight and hearing but we struggled to see the food and hear each other speak. I did ask if any additional lighting (even an extra candle ) was available but the waitress said a flat no. Lots of young hipsters around who looked like they were staying at Soho house. A bit more style than substance and can never recommend anywhere where the eating of the food however tasty feels like a chore (like eating steak with a broken arm in plaster).

I booked an early supper on Saturday night as I had my longest standing friends over from Portugal (as I was celebrating a very big birthday). Unfortunately (I am hearing impaired & use hearing aids), the music was SO LOUD that you had to shout to make yourself heard ( even the waitress had trouble when explaining the menu!). I did explain my impairment and asked if the music could be turned down a little, i.e., just to be able to have a normal conversation? Apparently not??? As we were offered a table upstairs where it was (allegedly) quieter, which it was, though we were seated right under a speaker. I can only say that I was mortally embarrassed (as my friends find lovely places to take me in Portugal). I have been to Plateau for many a year ( but only at lunch), but previously, it was a " French-style subtle venue playing Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel etc ". Despite the fact that we could not converse, my friends loved the food & we had a very acceptable Cotes du Rhone. I'm not sure that I'll be rushing back, though.

A little disappointing as limited choice of food and generally overpriced (however, accept it was a quiet, wet and windy January night). The menu didn't grab me (others might like it), had difficulty in choosing some small dishes, but what came was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Had cheese plate to finish, tasty but £12 for 3 small portions of cheese. Only 2 choices of sweets. Service was very good, very attentive. Red wine very good. 12.5% service charge added automatically. Sorry, but won't be returning.

This is my second review of plateau 8 years on from the last. It's not our second visit though we always go to plateau when I'm Brighton 6 or so times a year. It's so laid back whilst keeping standards very high. Exceptional food, wonderful wine and marvellous, knowledgeable, engaging staff. I didn't hug the waitress this time ( I asked first the last time) but I could have. Lunch here is exceptional. Evolve yes, but don't change. Thank you

I can’t believe it’s taken us seven years-having had a beautiful cocktail here-to come back to Plateau. This really is a fabulous place, full of gorgeous attentive staff & an amazing menu…small plates of locally sourced heavenly food. Everything was wonderfully presented & tasted absolutely glorious. The atmosphere was buzzy & warm & the music being played was spot on. We had a superb evening & can’t wait to return!

Despite being Brighton residents, we’d never been here before. But took a punt and it was amazing! Really cool place. Small and intimate but a great relaxed vibe. I tend to be critical of restaurants but couldn’t fault this place in terms of food, drink and service. Everything was balanced and lovely, even the loos were cool,lol. Out waiter, Georgia, was completely fabulous. Professional, informative, efficient and genuine. Highly recommend.

Lovely food in small portions, the tartare and the oysters were delicious. The wine list was good but too complicated if you are not knowledgeable

Chose to eat here with my husband on a Saturday evening after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we went in with high expectations. The menu sounded very interesting and the place seemed very buzzy. We were seated upstairs and our orders taken quickly, which was good. Whilst we were way for our drinks though we noticed that, as some other reviewers have mentioned, the music was very loud and we were having to shout to communicate. This ended up being quite tiring by the end of the meal! When I went to toilet downstairs, I noticed that the music was just as loud (maybe even louder) downstairs. When you have a busy restaurant anyway, loud music just make the atmosphere quite stressful! The waiters were very nice and attentive, but the food was slow to come…I had a beetroot sort of dip, which was delicious, but it was nearly an hour after we sat down before I got any of my other courses. The food, when it came, was absolutely delicious - smokey, unusual flavours and reasonably priced. There was a good balance of meat, fish and vegetable options on the menu, which was good to see. If this review was solely based on the quality of the food, I’d give it 5/5. Neither of us enjoyed the wine (Riesling) and don’t end up finishing the bottle. We often order a Riesling as we enjoy it with food, but this one wasn’t pleasant at all. I understand that everyone has different tastes, but it’s the first time we have ever left any wine!! Seeing as the food was so good we would return, but only in the summer when we were not in a rush and could sit at the tables outside, away from the music!

We went for lunch today. We used to go often in the past, but slowly the quality of food went down; there is no consistency. The food was very oily and did not taste great in general. We complained to the waiter (in the most kind way possible), who did not take it very nicely, saying that the kitchen was quite busy, which explained the quality of the food. It was a disappointing experience. I don’t think we will be back, and neither will our friends.

Great ambiance, bare brick walls and low lighting, a buzz of animated and satisfied diners. Mainly small plates, all bursting with flavour, a great selection of wines from smaller vineyards, superb cocktails. Service was spot on too.
