In principle, Côte Ouest is inspired by food from Brittany, and the menu hence includes Galettes de Sarrasin and the occasional Breton dish. But it is also known for more typical fare, such as Moules / Frites, Steaks / Frites, and Confit de Canard. Anna had an outstanding bowl of Moules with a superb, classic white wine sauce & great frites. And for me, the succulent Confit de Canard was the best I have ever eaten (and I have eaten many). An excellent Chinon (Loire) was available by glass, carafe or bottle, along with a small but varied list. Very busy on a Saturday night, but friendly service largely managed to keep pace. Warm atmosphere with a pleasantly worn interior of hand hewn wood. Note the specials -- apparently, the Lapin à la moutarde is (along with the Confit) one of the several dishes they are known for.

We found this place as it was close to our hotel, we tried to go on a Saturday night but it was fully booked so we booked for the next night. The food was amazing but the service went down hill after we sent back a meal which was covered in chives (my friend had allergies). I would still recommend this place as the food and atmosphere were worth it.

My father visited this restaurant the previous year and recommended it, this year offering to take me out to dine there. Needless to say, the steak was fantastic, and even better was the superb seasonal Dubbelbock beer that was served. The icing on the cake for what was already shaping up to be an excellent meal was the service provided by the owners/managers, Claudia and Lawrence. They interacted with us throughout the night, even sitting with us at some points, ensuring our meal was an enjoyable experience as well as a delicious one. A night to remember in Amsterdam, and one made possible by Cote Ouest and its warm staff.

The theme is "French Dining with Dutch Ingredients." We walked in on Saturday night after 10:00PM, so we were quickly escorted to a table. Our party of three each had a different version of the mussels, which were complemented with a nice Dutch beer. The food was excellent, and was delivered very promptly.

The owners were our servers, and they went out of their way to make certain we had an enjoyable evening.

I recommend finding Cote Ouest when visiting Amsterdam.

After visiting various tourist venues in Central Amsterdam enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant and excellent service provided by Joey followed by a delicious and well-prepared & presented meal including the to-die-for Tarte Tatin - look forward to our next visit!
