Well, my wife and I went for an evening meal at this restaurant. I must say that the atmosphere was really Good, the staff was extremely assertive, the decor was set to a very high standard.
We both ordered a steak, extremely well cooked, full of flavour and made great use of the fantastic wine menu.
In terms of price, what you pay is what you get in most cases.....very good value for money. I have no problem paying for great food and drink. We shall definitely return here. Thanks

We often frequent the local Cote, food is enjoyable, ambiance is pleasant, service is attentive and pleasantly not rushed.
Yet this evening deserves a review; upon arrival a waiter that served us previously and really was a notch above, welcomed us, and arranged for our usual booth, but was unable to serve due to section arrangement; yet we had a blonde lady whom one can only assume must be a manager, assistant manager or soon to step up; evening was almost faultless, one mains was the wrong order yet actually the first choice but being a cynic with experience that seldom does a franchise produce truly succulent tender chicken; the order arrived and we wouldn’t permit it go back; it looked too good.
So credit to the chefs in the kitchen! Credit to management! And credit to waiting staff!
Any honest review does need a suggestion for improvement, and ours would be the ladies and gentlemen that care for the clientele for an evening should introduce themselves by name, so one can give appreciation if it is deserved; like this evening! Top notch, and thank you.

Food was well presented and tasty but was expecting slightly more from our visit! The staff were very attentive which I find hard to come by nowadays! Drinks were prompt and couldn't fault the service. Food was adequate but nothing special!

Celebrates my wedding anniversary at Cote . The food was amazingly tasty , The atmosphere was calm and serene , the service was welcoming and friendly. I HAD STEAK and it was the best sirlion steak ever with mushroom sauce. Their Garlic bread oh my soft and just yum. The prawn started heavenly sweet. . The crepe banana dessert was very satisfying and endulging wanted more.

I will recommend this restaurant any day anytime would have given 5 star but am just not that nice. But it was a great dinner served.
