Cote is a favourite of mine so I'm always happy to see one when I'm in a new place. That said, this one really did stand out on service. Friendly, happy and efficient staff. Food served hot on hot plates (a detail sometimes neglected).

Both of us had the steak and chips - tender, flavoursome meat and light, crisp fries. We finished with the Creme Caramel - divine!

Would strongly recommend this Cote, couldn't fault it.

If you like your food plain then this restaurant is for you. I had a chicken dish and it was beautifully cooked, it was just a shame that it was not seasoned.

Staff where friendly with just the right amount of attention.
Food was delicious with just the right amount of time between courses.

Fantastic place to eat.

I reluctantly ordered the fillet stake , reluctant because you never seam to get what you ordered. No problems here our waitress was perfect in communicating our wishes to the chef.

Visited this establishment at 7pm on a very busy Friday evening with my family . Our party ranged in age from 12 to 47 and everyone had the best foodie experience imaginable. The staff were friendly and completely professional, service was swift and efficient. Drinks and starters arrived promptly and were well presented . The atmosphere was completely relaxed and comfortable while still maintaining an " evening out " feeling of opulence. The wine choice was good and fairly priced. We chose both specials on offer , and happily enjoyed a sublime skate and some glorious beef. The pork belly dish was also knockout and the steak beyond comparison. Desserts did not disappoint and our chocoholics were purring. The cheese board was also the best I've had locally , a bit of apple alongside the grapes would have been an extra nice touch and is the only mini smut on the evening. Totally top notch, fair price for a stunning meal , the added gratuity was very well deserved and not a problem at all. Will defiantly return and sample much more of this wonderful menu. Top marks !
