Great restaurant / bar with an excellent range of vegetarian options and specialty beers. Platters are a great sharing option and there were other nice sides. The only problem was it was so dark in the restaurant it was difficult to read the menu!

I had great hopes for the place and, although I enjoyed my time there I was a bit disappointed with the food and the selection of wines. I don't know the scene in Brighton so well but this place should not be a homerun.

At last! This is what Brighton has craved for years. Others have tried and failed; whilst a few thrive on the theme but fall flat on the delivery. Quality wine, cocktails and food. Very laid back Balearic tunes intertwined with other chilled varieties. Knowledgeable and...More

Been here to this little gem a few times just for drinks. Bar staff always pretty attentive and drinks nicely presented. A great atmosphere in there, not too loud and in your face. Obviously the drinks taste good too!

A tiny place with a French orientation. Very imaginative menu. Wine suggested was superb, not too pricey, and served at the correct temperature. The main courses on the menu are for two and offer several dishes on one board, with the sides in very unusual...More

A strange mix of formal and informal...ie posh informal. We love to come here as the staff are lovely and the wine really, really good. A fabulous range of cocktails - not cheap but served beautifully and it's a lovely place to hang out. The...More

We walked in on a rainy night in March and were greater with a warm greating. This is a real French bistro with the dishes written up on the blackboard and slightly idiosyncratic service. The food was excellent and the have an extensive wine list...More

Independent bar à vin, restaurant & cocktail bar based in The Lanes, Brighton. We 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?
