Have just left Côte in Richmond feeling very sick! My friend and I had booked a table in advance and upon arrival found there was no table ready for us downstairs in the main restaurant so were shown upstairs. No one else was sat upstairs at all and the lights and music were actually only turned on once we got... More

A regular haunt for us. Sometimes mixed levels of service as the staff seems to change frequently, however, the managers are usually dependable and happy to get involved to make sure you're comfortable. The Cote chain provides great value, dependably good food. Recommendation: start with a Kir Royale, follow with calamari and either steak frite or the goats cheese salad.

I love the Côte chain - always delicious. This was my first visit to the Richmond branch. Lovely atmosphere, charming staff, but they forgot our order ... After an hour of waiting we almost walked out, but the staff were so nice, and our salads - when they arrived - were good. They made up for everything by not charging... More

We had an early evening meal which is excellent value for money. The food is good and the staff are helpful. You almost always need to book as it gets very crowded.

Failed to get a table on Saturday evening so booked for Sunday and were not disappointed. Restaurant was warm and welcoming the young lady most attentive and spot on with her recommendations. Moules & onion soup for starters followed by pork and fish pie finishing of with coup noire and coffees. An excellent meal well served. Well done Cote.

I like going there regularly, can get busy and sometimes you need to book a table, the food quality and atmosphere are good. The times I've been, the service had been generally good. I don't think it's very expensive , they have a lunch menu which is of good value. The restaurant has a french but relaxed atmosphere and it's... More

Having just arrived in Richmond for the first time we were unsure where to eat. Having walked down Richmond Hill from our hotel this restaurant was the first to appeal to us. We were warmly welcomed & we were so pleased we arrived when we did as it started to fill up very quickly. Staff were attentive, food was excellent... More

This is a nice place for some french food and is reasonably priced. We were provided with a table as soon as we walked in on a Saturday afternoon and the service was good overall.

Fortunate enough to have eaten at a few Cote restaurants. Richmond experience was by far the worst. The queue to be checked in and taken to table was so long at first we waited outside the bistro. It was a 10 minute wait to get to table (despite booking for 6.45pm). We had been in the restaurant for 25 minutes... More

Our inspiration for the food and design of Cote is a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros of Paris. Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities.
Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly.
