A lovely restaurant with an intimate atmosphere and one where you could actually hear others and enjoy a conversation. We were not rushed but were well looked after and the food was excellent and very good value.

We had 2 tables at this restaurant - both had poor experiences. There is an affordable set menu, but I wont be going back. I ordered gluten free and, despite my salad being served with a gluten free flag, found fried croutons within it. This mistake could have sent me into anaphylaxis. The pea and mint soup was so salty... 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.
