Went as 2 couples, excellent attentive staff, particulary the manager, middle aged guy with glasses, really nice guy, fairly good selection, didn't see any burgers but maybe thats a sign i should stop choosing them. If you order steak, they slightly undercook it, 'medium rare'...More

I ate here with friends on a Saturday night and had one of their booths. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was broadly the same as other Cotes although the chicken was a bit dry.

Had a meal here before going to the theatre and was not disappointed. Both had the Fougasse to start - something we don't get elsewhere, followed by the Steak Frites. Truly tasty and plenty of it. See you again.

Service Ok, but food overall very average. Poor endive and roquefort salad, steak frites - steak was overcooked, incorrect dessert brought, incorrect digestif, just generally a bit expensive for really average fayre. The service was fine except for being served and charged for incorrect orders....More

From being greeted by the manager to the excellent waitress service, it was a special meal. Food excellent, veal escalope and pork belly highly recommended and minted peas are to die for. That's before the desserts which are also very very tasty. Highly recommend and...More

The food was delicious - we are vegetarians, and were a little concerned about finding food on a French menu...but we managed to stuff ourselves with several veggie dishes. SO yummy. And our server Ioana was so attentive and lighthearted and sweet. Just a really...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.
