We had the special lunch menu with a bottle of excellent French Wine. The service from "Benny" was impeccable and we had a most relaxing & delicious meal after several hours of Oracle Shopping! We'd recommend the Steak au Frites as well as the Mushroom Soup & Sea Bream Fillet. We were already full so skipped the deserts even though the menu was most tempting! We'd certainly visit again on our next Oracle Shopping Expedition! Thank-You once again to "Benny" and the Cote Brassiere Staff who made our lunch so enjoyable!

Went here for an early evening meal and the food was very, very good. The homemade burger was sublime. The location is very good too being right on the 'waterfront' development. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable too. All in all a very pleasant experience and at very reasonable prices too.

I visited with someone with a mobility scooter. We were able to get in easily and park the scooter in the restaurant alongside our table so my aunt could transfer to a seat. Good menu choices with a prix fixe menu as well as à la carte. We had fish parmentier (£12.50), lamb shank (£14.95), a side of creamed spinach (£3.75) enough for two to share and a crème brûlée (£5.95). There's an good wine list and suggested wine pairings. We had a kir royale (£4.95) and a large glass of Traviac (£5.75). The restaurant is happy to serve tap water. 12% service charge is automatically added to the bill. All tips go to the staff so we chose to pay the total food and wine bill on credit card and leave a cash tip. Staff are helpful and the food was plentiful and well cooked and flavoursome. I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant. If you found this review helpful please tick the box.

Me and a friend were trying to find food at about 10 on a Sunday so obviously everything was closed and then to our delight this place was still serving! Our waiter Benny was brilliant and didn't mind serving us so late and getting everything we needed and was professional but friendly and funny at he same time. I had the goats cheese salad and my friend had the beef bourguignon followed by apple tart and choc mousse, all amazing, and I could honestly just have eaten the bread! Lovely place, great food, good location and great staff, thanks for having us so late!

I and my colleagues tried this restaurant, in terms to discover if french cuisine is good as described. Meat fresh and good cooking, side dishes plenty of vegetables, dessert worth to enjoy.
A good time spend with pleasure and friendship, eating and drinking with satisfaction. To try.
