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.

Went to lovely Plateau last Thursday for a Christmas/Birthday combo with some friends. I dropped a cake off before the meal and the staff were lovely taking it in and arranging for it to be cut with candles on top and everything! We had the veggie, fish and charcuterie platters and the most delicious of white wines - les clous,... More

Lovely little stop off for a glass of vintage port and a cheese board. Not a very large choice on the menu and I don't remember seeing charcuterie at all??? Quite small but nice wine. Unfortunately there are only 2 decent cheese and wine restaurants in Brighton, and this is one of them. To be honest i'd much rather go... More

We first tried to go on Saturday afternoon when we went in there was one table for four left and they said we couldn't be seated at that table as there were two of us, I found that a bit rude but we went away and returned Sunday afternoon, it was quiet so the barman said sit...

We booked a lunch here for a birthday treat - staff were very friendly and helpful. We have eaten in many restaurants and frankly we just could not make our minds up about this......for example we ordered the meat platter and the meat was beautifully cooked and hot, however it was put on a bed of cold lentils, celeriac, etc....

We came across this place by chance. The menu looked a little different than usual. Quite small selection but unusual fare and no problem finding something to suit everyone. Very friendly and polite service. Like the food a selection of interesting beers wanted the great food down. No complaints at all. Very pleased with our chance finding

We had a meal booked for a Saturday night for 4 of us - on arrival it was fully booked and there was a great atmosphere. We ordered two meat platters which were delicious. Service was good. A tad on the expensive side but a lovely treat. Would go again and would recommend.
