Pre/post Theatre
The inspiration for the fuss-free French food and the stylish interior comes from the traditional bistros of Paris. The emphasis is on simply, reasonably priced dishes and the menu includes familiar Gallic favourites like moules marinières, steak frites with skinny frites, duck confit and the Côte dessert speciality, crème caramel. Côte is ideal for a quick business lunch, mid-week dinners with friends, and pre-theatre meals. We guarantee you’ll come back time after time.

We booked but when we arrived they didn’t have a table for us and were turning away numerous other people who had also made reservations.

Won’t be going back given the level of disorganisation.

Very pleasant lunchtime get-together with a friend of many years. Food excellent and served efficiently - the waitress was a little frosty and did not exude any warmth or make much effort, she actually tutted when I had to re-enter my PIN in the machine that she clumsily held onto. Other than that - a restaurant I will happily return to.

Wilted salad and mussels past their best. Only two waiting staff so service slow

We enjoyed a very good pre-theatre meal - only time for two courses. The starters came extremely quickly which gave us the chance to savour them properly. There was then a very long break before the mains arrived - probably due in part to the fact that one of our party had not arrived until after starters were served, so I assume mains were held back. However they were served soon enough that we did not have to rush them. We had salmon - excellent; gluten free pancake - also excellent ; and chicken in mushroom sauce - too much salt. The staff were extremely helpful, even to the pint of warning our gluten-intolerant daughter that fries were prepared in a deep-fryer which had been used for products containing gluten. We would certainly recommend it and would like to go back with more time to spare.

It was a busy Tuesday evening@ the restaurant.our starters ( smoked salmon and chicory salad ) were decent and our mains ( bakes bream and lamb) were very tasty.the small side of roasted beetroot and pumpkin was also nice as well as the almond tart with cinnamon ice cream. A nice meal as always.

Always reliable...always good value...bit noisy but shows how popular this restaurant is....not really surprising that their neighbouring restaurant ,Bellanger , recently gave up the unequal struggle.

My friend and I shared the chateaubriand and were very impressed by the portion size as well as the quality of the meat.
The Chinon red that we chose to go with it was equally good.
