A type of French restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals.Côte Brasserie are without a doubt connoisseurs in high quality yet affordable French dining. With a commitment to producing exceptional food and service, look no further than this charming brasserie family, inspired by the bistros of Paris. Located in the spectacular Bluewater shopping village in Greenhithe, Kent, Côte Brasserie Bluewater is perfect after a day of retail therapy or perhaps for a break halfway through, and given the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Côte Bluewater is extremely popular. Book ahead to reserve your table and guarantee a spot.
Côte Brasserie at Bluewater shopping village has fast become the main dining destination for shoppers and Francophiles alike, and it’s not hard to see why. With great pride in creating interesting French brasserie-inspired dishes using seasonal produce sourced from both England and France, here, the Greenhithe team have created an environment that will have you nostalgic for the streets of Paris. The decor is charming, almost vintage, and the whole experience feels unique. As is the way with Côte, this restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with weekday lunch and early evening specials.
We recommend stopping in for breakfast and trying the eggs benedict or florentine served on a toasted muffin with perfectly balanced homemade hollandaise sauce and a choice of gourmet ham or spinach. For dinner, perhaps sampling the roasted duck breast with gratin potato, followed by the tarte au citron for dessert, a traditional lemon tart with Normandy crème fraîche and raspberries is the way to go. Then again, the menu is so laced with quality that it makes little difference what you go for. Greenhithe’s Côte Brasserie Bluewater is not to be missed – book ahead to reserve a spot at this French delight.
Unlike other eating chains at Bluewater we find Cotes' staff to be of the same high standard as their other venues. This certainly does NOT apply at across the board,.
The Breton Chicken is fantastic. I couldn't eat it all as we had a Fougasse to start which is very tasty but also very filling! We always eat in Cote when if we are hungry when in Bluewater.The srvice can't be faulted.
You really can’t do better whilst at Bluewater if quality food and drink are needed. Usual high standard of service, food and wines, a welcome break from the stress of shopping. This is why we return as often as we do.
Yes my visit today was very pleasant. Food is wonderful and the service is great and very friendly. Can't wait for next visit for another great meal.
Food was lovely we did have to wait 10 mins before someone took our order for drinks and food and our starter came before our drinks did. Two things we wasn't happy about was the mussels my husband had more shells than food but when mentioned to a member of staff he did get another bowl. Second one is when given spoons for our dessert one was dirty and not a little mark but covered in dry food, again this was dealt with and apology was given. It was Valentine's night so they were busy but starters before drinks and dirty spoon shouldn't happen, but food amazing. Would I go again yes but not for a while and not in an evening as I like to a drink while waiting for food.
Staff were especially jolly and showed an interest in our party of 5 ladies. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and the kit royals were a lovely treat. Only negative was that the liquor coffee was served in a glass only half full and not very hot - it was if it was the last in the coffee pot and because it was the end of the evening the server didn't want to make more. That said, when I mentioned the very short measure the waitress apologised and immediately replaced with a fresh one. Really good atmosphere for a Wednesday night.
The staff were very friendly and helpful at this large, busy branch of Cote. I met with friends for lunch and we all chose from the special lunch menu which we thought was very good value. I enjoyed the heritage tomato salad, though I was surprised that it did not come with any bread which had to be ordered separately. This was followed by baked Camembert, salad and toasted baguette. I found the toast very hard indeed and the Camembert almost tasteless, very gooey, if not gluey, and hence awkward to eat, leaving an unpleasant feeling n the mouth. I must add that my friends would not agree with this as they polished off all of theirs. The desserts we chose were the peach crumble and the chocolate pot were excellent. I would definitely revisit this branch but would order more carefully in future.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, and gave us a choice of where we wanted to sit, and didn't rush us out after we had finished our meal. We were six friends who don't see each other very often, so lots of news to catch up on, we were allowed to stay seated at our table for around three and a half hours, so we had a lovely relaxed meal with good friends and good food, overall it was a really great experience, well done Cote Brasserie, we will certainly come again!!
This was our first visit to Cotê. What a brilliant experience. From the very friendly young woman who showed us to the table, to the lovely waitress who was attentive without being oppressive. We had the 3 course lunchtime meal, and it was bloody lovely! Really don't go to your average restaurant that throws a salad bar in, go here where the food isn't expensive, but looks and tastes like it's been prepared and cooked with a bit of love. Our first visit? Yes...Our last?....Not a chance...We ll be back soon.
I made a reservation for 3 people for my Mums 81st birthday. No mention was made about her birthday even though I put details on my reservation. Last year she got a free glass of wine, this year - nothing! Object to service fee automatically added to bill, we prefer to leave a tip based on good service (usually 15%) rather than the restaurant deciding we should pay regardless of service. As it happens, service was good but would have preferred to leave the tip ourselves. Not sure I would go again for a birthday celebration if it is not recognised.
