Description: Independent bar à vin, restaurant & cocktail bar based in The Lanes, BrightonWe are a unique bar à vin & restaurant with a passion for great food & wine. We have put a great deal of time & love into selecting our wines. At Plateau you can discover interesting & affordable wines that you are unlikely to see on other local wine lists. Our selection is mostly natural with some biodynamic & organic examples. We have sourced wines from local Sussex producers to renowned names & newcomers. To soak up the wine we serve ‘bites’, small dishes perfect to share or great as a starter. Follow your ‘bites’ with a ‘plateau’ to share or a 'plat' & that’s our dinner experience… although don’t forget dessert! Our chefs source organic, fresh, local produce as much as possible.Did we mention the cocktails? They’re probably the best in town & although we don’t serve Carlsberg we do serve some pretty imaginative beers from around the world. We have some top quality spirits, including some rare rum, whisky & cognac…and I almost forgot, keep an eye out for the ‘cocktail de la semaine’ & ‘beer of the moment’.There is no set way to visit Plateau, you can match the wine to the food or the food to the wine. Pop in just for a drink, a few bites or a three-course meal – the idea is that you do whatever suits you.

It is hard to find a tasty, economical and interesting lunch in Brighton if you want to avoid chains and pubs but we struck gold.
Plateau serves seasonal food and has a very good wine list. We shared a starter of broad beans, peas, mozzarella and mint and it was sublime. The quality of the ingredients was excellent. They do a choice of plat du jours for £10 and I had steak with new potatoes and my daughter had confit duck with veg.
Staff are friendly and will help with the wine list. We will absolutley go there next time we are in Brighton.

Evening meal for my wife and I while visiting Brighton overnight. Came recommended. What a decision to make. SUPERB food. One of the nicest and tastiest lamb dishes I have ever had. My wife loved her spring veg tagliatelle. Fabulous custard tart pudding! Lovely service. Well done, keep it up and open a branch in Sheffield please!

Unusual starters - ox tongue and pigeon breasts served in an interesting way followed by tender steak onglet. Plenty of other things on the menu I would have enjoyed. Only complaint is that the wine is very expensive - only one red and one white below £20; not what we are used to up North or even elsewhere in Brighton. Other members of our group came the next night and were also content.

Spent a wonderful evening eating and drinking some of the most sublime food and wine we've ever tasted. The service was magnificent especially when trying to navigate our way round the extensive wine list, would highly recommend giving Plateau a visit if your in or around Brighton.
