Further Information

When in the seaside town of Brighton, a wander through the beautiful Pavilion Gardens and Royal Pavilion are an absolute must – so the perfect end to a perfect day of relaxing and taking it all in is to pay a visit to the French specialists at Côte Brasserie. Located close to these beautiful gardens and opposite the equally beautiful Brighton Dome, Côte Brasserie specialises in high quality French cuisine without the exorbitant price point. With a stunning rooftop terrace as well as street front dining, this Church Street brasserie in the city centre will have something to satisfy everyone.

We recommend beginning your evening with steak tartare, finely chopped raw beef mixed with shallots, capers, cornichons, egg yolk and cognac, before moving on to the delectable pan roasted haddock fillet wrapped in smoked French bacon with braised puy lentils and wilted baby spinach, dill and beurre blanc. Dessert is a must and with the Côte speciality of crème caramel it’s not hard to see why. Situated in the heart of the Brighton, it’s definitely worth booking a table at Côte in advance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambiance of Cote. The food and service were excellent and a most interesting menu. It was a bit noisy but that was only because everyone was having a good time ! We will be back .

Stylish decor. Friendly attentive waiting staff. Gluten and dairy free, no problem at all. Lovely food, hot and cooked to perfection. I do like the filtered water in stylish flagons, drink as much as you like. My partner said his wine was good quality. A very peaceful experience.

The great thing about Cote is that you get exactly what you expect to get. The menu has just the right selection and variety of dishes to meet any palate and culinary need. The food is always well prepared and hot. The staff always attentive without being overly so. Its a great place to take friends, knowing there will be something on the menu they will want to eat and it will arrive perfectly prepared with the minimum of fuss. Perfect.

Overall the restaurant is pleasant and overall the staff are friendly. We have found that the food is generally ok with a couple of terrible mistakes. 'Grilled or Roast' chicken swimming in oil and last time a risotto floating on about a quarter pint of olive oil. I get the impression from these chains that little cooking is done on the premises and what cooking is done is by numbers. Anything that causes the plan to go awry and the cooks don't show much cooking skills.... avoid the house white or just order vinegar.

Friendly welcoming and efficient service. Very good options on the great value 2/3 course set menu. Tasty, well presented food. Always an enjoyable experience at Brighton Cote. I highly recommend this branch of Cote which I rate higher than the various other branches of this chain I have visited, as much for the staff as the food.

Very good value. Delicious food and good service. Roomy and pleasant atmosphere. Saturday night very busy but staff had time for everyone. Half of my wife's rib eye steak was grizzle and she left it. When the waitress asked her why she left it, she explained that it was grizzly and uneatable. The Maitre D' came along, profusely apologized and offered the desserts on the house.i

Good service, good food, good value. we have eaten here several times over the last couple of years and would happily recommend anyone to eat here. This used to be brighton Music library, hence the room is large......and can be the noisy when busy, particularly if you sit in the central area of the room.

Pleasant and attentive staff, well organised and efficient service even though the restaurant was filling up and just about full by the time we had finished our meal. We will continue to use Cote at home and on holiday because the quality and service appears to be good at all locations.

Great lunch place and great food, however, I was meeting someone and as we both arrived separately, we were also seated separately for 15 minutes until the staff realised that we were waiting for each other - a better mechanism for ensuring 'matching'. Unusually it took ages to have food order to be taken so it was 45 minutes before we actually started our lunch... This time rated 4, previously much higher.

A consistent high standard is maintained both food and service. Food is of good quality and this judged against similar French restaurants in France. Service high due to personal service by motivated and well managed servers. To achieve this, as they did, on Saturday night is commendable.

Sometimes a great experience, sometimes not so. Today I really enjoyed my food and the courtesy glasses of Kir Royal for my birthday, however my dining companion was not so keen on his steak..he asked for rare and it was quite well done and some of it did not taste good. A little spasmodic in quality but usually I enjoy it, particularly the duck!

The foods and service are very nice. The mussels and the fish pie are my favourite. The price is medium, good for small party between family. To be honest, when my parents come for my graduation I will bring them there!

It's a lovely restaurant in a good location. The food was good, however I found the cod goujons tasteless. There also isn't a separate allergen menu so there was a limited menu for me to choose from. Overall a good restaurant and I would recommend it.

I have given top marks as the staff (all of them) made lunch out with a friend seem like a special occasion. Nothing was too much trouble and everything happened with professionalism and a friendly smile.

Consistently excellent service and a great menu at Cote Brighton.. Works well for our gluten free, non meat eating daughter as well as for our highly carnivorous son. Simple food, great flavours, well cooked and served by really nice and well trained people..

This is a lovely venue with reasonably priced food and great service. It was disappointing to be told they don't sell any cocktails (especially as there are two on the menu!) and the vegetarian options are very limited (two things on the menu). But a lovely experience and very good value.

The meal and the service was very good. The only complaint is that Cote always add 12 & half % tip. We would prefer to add our own tip and feel that 10% is quite adequate.

Generous Calamari starter cooked in crispy batter enjoyable. Steak frites was also good value and tasty. We are at a table upstairs because downstairs was full and the atmosphere is not so good up there. Staff always pleasant.
