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.

We've been to Plateau a couple of times in the past few months, and it is a pretty good restaurant. The service was a bit slow on one occassion (Sunday lunch), and parts of the menu are a little on the rich side of things (which obviously is personal taste and not a major criticism), but overall we have liked the place when we've been.

Plateau is one of my favourite restaurants in Brighton. You can have a platter to share, a proper meal or you can just while away a rainy Saturday afternoon with champagne cocktails. Lovely!

I live in Brighton and come here regularly. Great food, great atmosphere, excellent wine. Can be tricky to get a table on popular nights, so book ahead.

Good wine, delicious food- the meat platter was divine!!
Friendly attentive staff and great music to boot. Was well worth the trip from Portsmouth.

The food was excellent, the tables are far too close for my liking, the lighting was poor as it was difficult to read the menu (maybe it was just my table) the service was hit & miss but pleasant! Good wines, good cocktails, good beers, overall it was enjoyable!
