Having had very pleasant meals at Cote before, we booked it for a pre-theatre joint birthday/anniversary celebration on 1st July. Being a warm summer evening the restaurant was very busy, so understandably the kitchen was a little slower than the usual speedy service we have received from Cote in the past. We frustratingly had to cancel our order as we... More

We visited this restaurant before going to see Felicity Kendall in Hayfever. We were lucky to get a table because we hadn't booked and it was busy. The service was good and the place had a lovely atmosphere. The food was wonderful we all enjoyed our meals.

We arrived on a Sunday morning for breakfast. After being seated in the window we waited 15 minutes while the staff chatted amongst themselves behind the bar. A waitress finally emerged and started cleaning tables, avoiding our gaze. Avoid - Muriel's Kitchen is close by with great atmosphere and location.

I'm a huge fan of the Cote chain. There are several Cote restaurants in London, I've tried 2 in Covent Garden but this is my favourite. I chose this one to review as the staff here are particularly great. Cote's fixed price menu is amazing value. I don't know many places you can get a Kir Royale for £4.25 either... More

Dined here on a Saturday evening and chose from the set menu which was good value for money. I had the smoked salmon followed by the minute steak with Béarnaise sauce. It was all really tasty especially the steak and the vinaigrette on the salad. Didn't fancy any of the desserts. The menu had good variety of choice and the... More

This restaurant offers a preset 3 course menu with some really nice options for all 3 courses. The A la Carte also had some really nice options and well priced. Important to prebook as it does cater for theatre goers.
