Tried the quiche of the day, light flaky crust with variety of vegetables, olives and a delicate egg-cheese filling. Mixed greens on the side with a flavorful balsamic dressing. Excellent service, superb chef. Loved it!

Quaint, perfectly convenient location, wonderful food and service. The specials are always on point, and while varied from week to week, always decidedly French. Delicate croissants, fresh preserves, and French toast that will ruin all other French toast for you. Looking forward to coming back...More

Small restaurant with feel of French Bistro. Owners give personal attention and you feel very welcome. Food is authentic, fresh tasty as only the French prepare. Bruch is special with all the traditional dishes available. Best French Toast ever !

My wife and I had a delightful lunch, the food was superb. She had an omelet with a salad and I had Chicken Basquaise w/rice, a traditional French Basque dish. It was terrific.

This restaurant is run by someone from France, and the food is very authentic, creative, and delicious. I had lunch there and sweet potato soup and escargots. The atmosphere is cozy and contemporary. The service was excellent. Good French restaurants are hard to come by.

Booked with two friends for quiet dinner. Three courses--shared the terrine for starter, mains were scallops, coq au vin, risotto, various deserts, wine. All delicious. Authentic French cuisine, good honest food, well presented but not artificially 'arty'. Our favourite restaurant in Venice. Easy free parking...More

Description
Originally from the South of France, Stéphane and Myriam have a deep connection with the traditional French cuisine of their home country. They will take you on a gastronomic "Tour de France", particularly for Dinner, uniting top-quality ingredients and dishes with a wine list featuring some of France's best wine estates. Coté France invites you to experience its warmth and convivial atmosphere. Come enjoy at any moment of the day the shady patio or the main dining room, or for more relaxation and privacy the mezzanine. Seating options include indoor main floor and top floor seating, as well as outdoor patio-style seating with umbrellas for shade. Reservations are welcome. Bon appétit from the Coté France team!!
