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.

“modest bistro with excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

We visited this unassuming French style Bistro as a groupof seven. The short excellent
menu indicated the food would be freshly prepared and we were not disappointed. We shared a fish platter as a starter. Salmon, prawns squid etc were well presented and obviously fresh. The main courses included Duck, Fish and Steak, and all members of our group were pleased with the quality and presentation. The wine list which was extensive included some non-french wines. It included an excellent Spanish Albarino, reasonably priced at £25. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for an informal relaxing night out.
