i generally enjoy Cote Brasseries for a quick and cheap dinner. whilst there is an amazing one in WIndsor, I was extremely disapointed by the food at the Richmond branch. furthermore the staff could be a little more friendly.

I recently visited this restaurant for dinner and had a delicious Breton fish stew. The restaurant had a busy happy ambiance and several other diners appeared to be regulars. Good value for money and tasty food, will go again.

we are regulars at Cote and always enjoy their well priced, tasty food and excellent range of wines. Cote will no doubt be harmed by the Ivy opening opposite but we won't abandon it as a local favourite

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.
