We dined on a busy Friday night and the vibe is laid back & relaxed. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the decor is french shabby chic and very informal which was nice. Great wine list and unusual choices of bio-dynamic and organic wines were...More

Just a great meal - we had wild sea bream with a couple of great sides. Fantastic bio-dynamic wine. Brilliant service from Christian and Pascaline what a wonderful place - highly recommended.

I wouldn’t usually go to somewhere marketing itself as a wine bar, as you would assume the food is a second priority, however this place was so much better than we expected. The duck large plate was exceptional - really smoky and tender. The two...More

Eating here is like a petit sojourn in Paris, from the lovely looped chalked menu to the elegant staff and the choice of meat-based French inspired dishes. The wine list offers some interesting and unusual choices, most reasonably priced. The staff are great at making...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.
