“Good Food, Good Value, Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

We had reserved a table in advance which was ready for us on our arrival. The restaurant has a contemporary feel to it and the menu is modern French. The food, ambiance and service were all very good and we were pleasantly surprised that the bill was very reasonable.
It has a very relaxed feel to it and we were able to have a conversation without feeling that other customers were too close to us.
Cote St Martins is part of a chain but it certainly didn't feel so. We would definitely recommend.

“Great food, Excellent service & good value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I came here after reading reviews and was not disappointed. I had the 3 course pre- theatre and it was excellent value for under £12. I could not fault the food. I had the terrine, fish cake and the creme caramel which was the best! Finished with a excellent Latte. I wish I could get the same value and service in Australia...

“Good food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

A very busy restaurant, managed to get a table for 2 without booking on a weds night. Both me and my friend ordered the 3 course, pre-theatre menu. The food was fresh and nicely presented, and a moderate size portion that made 3 courses possible. I got the steak, which could have done with some vegies on the side, but was tasty anyway. Creme Caramel for dessert was delicious. The service was attentive and we were served quickly, efficiently and politely. Would definately recommend!

“Excellent value, delicious food, cozy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Tried haddock and potatoes (advertised as one of their specials for the night) and it was delicious. Price wise, it's very good value. Atmosphere was lovely. Service was friendly but we had to fill our wine glasses ourselves which was no problem but expected. I look forward to my next visit here.
