'Simple yet great value' - Olive Magazine
Côte Brasserie loves London, and London loves Côte Brasserie. Yes, as we’re sure you well know, this is a group of French restaurants that one simply has to admire, not least because of the authentic menu on offer that’s comprised of traditional classics as well as regional specialities. At this particular Côte on Battersea Rise you’ll find menus tailored for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you can be sure that whatever time of day you stop by, the food you eat will satisfy. Côte Brasserie exceeds in doing the simple things right and the result is a delightful dining experience.
Nestled in Battersea – one of the most exciting areas of London – this Côte Brasserie is as charming as it is French. On Battersea Rise, the restaurant can be found between Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common and is one you can’t afford to miss if you want casual French dining. Donning the trademark Côte awnings out front and some typically French furnishings inside, it’s clear the whole Côte operation is brimming with thoughtfulness. This restaurant, before you’ve even looked at the menu, is a place you’ll be quite happy to sit and savour for quite some time.
Once you get to the menu the smile on your face is only going to get bigger, because the food is brilliant. Share some olives alongside a charcuterie board to start, or indulge in your own plate of tuna carpaccio or chicken liver parfait. When it comes to dishes more substantial, highlighting any as standout is difficult because all are laced with love. But, for the finest French flavours, the beef bourguignon or the roast duck breast will melt on the tongue. Battersea, London, and far further afield recognise Côte Brasserie as a mark of quality and affordable elegance – soon you will too.
Efficient but friendly and unintrusive service. Sunday evenings are evidently quite quiet (suited me fine) and they therefore closed down the back section of the restaurant, which kept the place seeming alive. Good food, well-served.
Fantastic brunch offer. I had a great service, table was ready for my party. Coffee was good. Fresh mint tea was fresh. Toast was delicious, next time will get the brown as it’s seeded.
Friendly staff, great food and perfect location. We booked online and requested a table by the window and that is what was reserved for us.
