Always a consistent,quality meal when dining at any of their locations
Good food, excellent value. Service was courteous and attentive, and my party of six had a really pleasant evening. Only drawback was that it was rather noisy. Highly recommended.
Enjoyable restaurant to spend time with a friend before going to a concert at the Barbican . Lots of choices on the menu for all pockets
The food we had from the 3 course set menu at £14.95 was amazing. Asparagus soup ..the best. Flatbread with caramelised onions and baked Camembert delicious, Haddock, and the best Creme caramels we have tasted in a long time...different and almost like a Panna Cotta. Beautiful rose wine...Laborie under £20 a bottle. We had a window seat overlooking the Barbican buildings, not the best sight but after this great value, delicious meal...close your eyes, you could have been sitting in a square in Provence. Staff we're lovely and friendly too.
Côte Barbican is our local, seven minutes walk away. We frequently go there for supper, before and after Barbican cinema trips. I also meet friends there for lunch. This evening, for supper, we were very well fed from the January menu - baked Crottin, sea bream, duck confit and lemon tart. Everything was very well cooked. The lemon tart, a whole tartlet, was not as good as the usual slice - pastry not classic. It was charmingly and efficiently served by Arjel from Greece/Albania. We had met him before and it is always a pleasure. Niggle: we had a voucher for a free bottle of wine but the choice was a Chardonnay or Merlot ☹️ no Sauvignon (as in previous years). The manager was not able to negotiate. It was pouring with rain or we might have gone next door to Iberico. We passed on the free offer and ordered the good Chinon. The lack of flexibility and narrow choice of offer was annoying and shows a lack of discernment.
My experience at Cote Barbican was fantastic. I had a perfectly cooked steak in a peppercorn and cognac sauce and for dessert I asked my waitress Monica ( who was very charming attentive and helpful ) if they had my favourite which was a crepe in grand marnier and she said we don't have all the ingredients to make it so I just opted for an ice cream. Anyway after going next door to the cinema to ask a question much to my surprise when I came back there on the table was my favourite dessert on fire and perfectly done. I called my waitress over to thank her and she said she had told the chef and he agreed to make it even though they had to go out and buy the oranges, so they went out of there way on a busy Saturday Night to make me a very happy and content man. Great place brilliant staff and good ambience with fantastic food. I will definitely be returning and would highly recommend this Cote Restaurant.
This was my second visit to Côte Barbican. Our party of three all had the pre-theatre menu. The food was very good quality and was excellent value for money, service was very good and helpful. What I really enjoy about this particular restaurant is that it's not too noisy: we had a really good chat and were able to hear each other without any problems. It's not deathly quiet either, just a really good atmosphere. Tables aren't crammed together which means that the restaurant has a very comfortable feel about it.
I'm a big fan of the Cote chain, but last night was both a bit of a disappointment and a really good experience! My friend and I ordered the chilled version of Vichysoisse, but were brought the hot version - quickly changed. We also both ordered steak frites (our favourite! which we often have), but the meat was overcooked. when a member of staff asked, a little later, "is everything OK?", we mentioned this. Immediately we were offered a rfeplacement, which we declined as we had already eaten some of the first steak without having complained immediately. So all that was a bit disappointing. The manageress herself came to our table and apologised, saying tbere would be an adjustment to the bill. I expected something like free coffee, but in fact the whole cost of the meal was deducted, and we only paid for drinks and coffee. Absolutely full marks. We will certainly be back at Cote before our next visit to the Barbican in a couple of weeks.
We had booked a table fr 6.15 to allow us time for a meal before the filmed opera started at 7.20. Because of terrible traffic we didn't arrive at the restaurant until 6.35. Our table was still reserved and waiting for us. We explained our time constraints to our waiter who was extremely helpful, took our order as soon as we were ready and the food - two courses, came up quickly and efficiently. We had time to enjoy a two course meal, with a bottle of house wine, pay and be out by 7.25. We arrived in the Barbican Cinema 5 minutes before the film began. Perfect timing and a very happy start to our evening's enjoyment. Also very reasonable cost - under £20 per head including service.
We visited Cote Barbican on a Friday evening. The restaurant was busy & had a positive buzz about it. We were greeted warmly by the manager who took us to our table. Service was good & our waitress was smiley, efficient & attentive - but not overly so. Despite the business of the restaurant, we didn't have to wait too long for our food. The food was tasty - two of us had cod goujons, minted peas & chips, another, grilled swordfish & ratatouille and the fourth person in our party had a fish & seafood stew which he said was really tasty. The four of us shared two very generous servings of profiteroles for desert -.they were really delicious! The bill at the end of the meal was reasonable -.just under £25 per head including wine & service. We'll definitely return to Cote Barbican another time.
