First of all, the dishes were nice. We went for lunch and, to be honest, we thought that the place offered a very good value for money. But there is a point that greatly disturbed us. We went to this restaurant thinking we would eat French food. That was not the case. In the menu half the items were written... More

We had a lovely meal on a Saturday night just before we went to the theatre. The quality of the food was excellent, a little pricey, especially when you order your meal, and every thing else, i.e. vegitables, are extra. The restaurant is snug, and can be a little noisy from time to time. The staff were very good, and... More

A Cote breakfast never disappoints. Great value £9.95 for any breakfast from the menu with glass of orange or apple juice toast and any hot drink. Always cooked to perfection. TIP: Scrambled egg automatically comes with chives so remember to ask for them without if you prefer it plain. CRITICISM: The jam comes in a shared jar that stays on... More

great execution of a winning concept. Very good quality food with excellent value for money. Best brassiere concept by a chain. The lunch and pre-theatre menus are amazing value. The staff seem friendly and importantly are well-trained and attentive. Wide choice men, and a good wine list

There is a feeling of bistro about this restaurant, from the atmosphere to the waiting staff. Some were definitely French but without the French approach to customer service which I can find annoying. The staff were very attentive but not overly so and the meals were served without any delay. I always like it when the waiting staff smile and... More

We loved the chance to catch up with friends for breakfast at this friendly restaurant beside Guildford Castle. Excellent service, a warm friendly ambience and delightful food meant that our 90 minute stay was excellent

Well presented food served with sensitive approach, topped off with a cost that was keener than most restaurants recently visited and a good ambience. Would visit again.

This restaurant looks so much bigger on the inside rather than out! I really like the relaxed vibe, the lighting, the candle, the cleanness and the wood work! Love the style of the place, good service, friendly staff. Very causal fine dinning. Free water is always good! Our starters were a let down as my partner found that there was... 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.
