I love this place. It is very nice even to have a glass of wine. We were there couple of time for dinner and was amazing. Portions quite small but very tasty. I will be back for sure.

My friend and I stumbled across this restaurant on a impromptu Saturday in Brighton and we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were excellent and never made us feel like we were waiting to order. The menu was confusing at first, but it was well explained after we had asked. We started with artisan bread with dips and the heritage... More

Came across Plateau whilst looking for something a bit special for dinner, and we certainly found that! Service was relaxed, friendly, attentive and warm. The meals were outstanding, interesting, unusual flavour profiles beautifully presented without pretension. Great selection of excellent, unusual wines. Atmosphere was quite funky and cool, but the funkiness was not compulsory, as in our mid forties we... More

I had lunch here with friends after their wedding. 12 of us had the room upstairs. The staff were so helpful and charming in getting us settled and underway with what would prove be a wonderful lunch with lovely wines to accompany and great deserts and cheese to die for. I had the steak bavette, it sailed into my view... More

Went there for lunch whilst visiting Brighton. The location is perfect, food is gorgeous and the staff is very friendly and knowledgable. This place is not big so if you're a larger group of people then try and book a table in advance.

Went here as a celebration. Lovely waiting staff, but we didn't understand the wine menu which seemed fiendishly complicated, like a code. We just didn't get how it worked. In the end we just asked the waitress. It was a great bottle however; so no complaints. You guys need to make more of the fact that the wine is so... More

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.
