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.

My evening ended on a high note yesterday. I went to Plateau for a cocktail and shared a couple of desserts with my friend. The pain perdu was out of this world, I'm still thinking about it this morning. Looking forward to coming back and trying the new bites! Merci Plateau!

“As good as it's ever been...”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

and perhaps better. It had even a while since we had been to Plateau to eat...I'm not sure why as we have always loved it's fresh approach to the French bistro and it's innovative wine selections. I think it's no more than an indication of the growing number of new restaurants in the city we have wanted to try. Brighton gets better and better as a foodie destination compared to 18 years ago when I first moved here. There are great restaurants but this one of the best. See you again soon!

“Funky, modern, chic, tasty food and plenty of drinks to keep going”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Have been going to Plateau since it's early days. It's amazing to see the place has gone from strength to strength over the years. Menuwise, it has a dynamic, vibrant and creative feel, all come in a sharing plates or a main course for one. Ingredients are in the season and always fresh. Drink menu is an impressive work, as well as the cocktails! If you ask, the friendly staff would be happy to make one just for your taste. This place is a little gem, as a dinner you could do so much with it. Occasions, celebrations, pre- night club drinking or treating it as a comfort place to go on a rainy day, all good and satisfying. Anyway, there have been so many restaurants in this city have come and gone in the past, but would love to see Plateau go further! Come on French!

“Excellent !”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

A group of 6 of us came here for lunch ( all girls ) , we stayed all afternoon ! The food was outstanding , we had various mixed platters and the banana cheese cake with peanut butter ice cream was probably the nicest thing that I have ever tasted ! The cocktails were lovely and the staff were very attentive , we were made very welcome and never rushed even though the lunch board was turned over to reveal the dinner menu ! Can't wait to visit the next time that we are in Brighton .
