Description: 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?

My Family and I went for a celebratory 'quick drink' at Plateau about a week ago. We were first struck by the great atmosphere, it was a Friday night in Brighton and that usually brings out quite a good crowd. We were seated upstairs, which was a LOT quieter, but as we did not have a reservation we were glad for the table. The wine selection is quite frankly, huge! So for any wino's this is the place to be! We enjoyed a very pleasant bottle of White and ordered some bread and dips. There was a great selection of nibbles on the menu, we also ordered a plate of cheeses, which were splendid. My only dig was perhaps the waiting service was a tiny bit too attentive. But overall we had a wonderful start to the evening at Plateau!

We only managed to get to Plateau for a pre-dinner drink before moving on to another restaurant so any detailed review here would not be rounded.

It was recommended to us by our hotel and from what we experienced, they were right to send us there! Great little french bistro with a lovely atmosphere and great cocktails. The bar was very busy (good sign) and they impressed us straight away by saying we could use a reserved table if we promised to give it back in 40 mins, which was far longer than we needed. We saw plenty of food coming out which all looked interesting and very french! It looked excellent!

My only regret is that we went elsewhere, which in hindsight was a mistake as our restaurant wasn't that great; i suspect that Plateau would have been far better....we'll go there next time for sure!!

the staff were very friendly, very knowledgeable about the food and wine, the food was amazing although the portions were a bit on the small size. the only criticism I would have would be that they do like to cram you in, too many tables in the restaurant, you can hardly move without knocking into someone else's elbows.

A spontaneous night away to Brighton allowed us to stumble across this little gem. Fabulous, knowledgable, friendly staff and a warm inviting vibe with cute, comfy decor.We tasted a few different wines - not convinced by them all - but on the whole it was a brilliant night.
