About Côte Bristol Quakers Friars

"Cote is fantastic”
– Michael Winner, The Sunday Times

As one of two Côte Brasserie’s in Bristol, this restaurant on Quakers Friars in Broadmead is helping to fly the flag high for French cuisine in the southwest. And, we’re happy to report, it’s doing a splendid job. At this modern little restaurant you’ll be made to feel special with an unbeatable combination of fine service, ambience and food that doesn’t try to be something it’s not. Here the food is humble and exceptionally-priced but still packs French flavour in a way that proves a restaurant doesn’t have to be independent in order to care. Reserve a table now.

Cote Brassiere must be one of the best restaurants in Cabot Circus Bristol with their excellent choice of either set price or premier or a-la-carte menus,

Everything was wonderful. All the staff were polite and very helpful, they gave us a high chair as soon as we asked and having a baby with us was no problem.

My best friend and I had our annual 'Christmas lunch' at Cote Bristol Quakers Friars last Saturday. We loved its central location and had a great selection on the menu without being overwhelming. My starter of French onion soup was really delicious and my friend loved her calamari but our real treat is to have steak frites. Mine was medium rare and hers was medium and they were cooked perfectly. My creme caramel was to die for. I can't remember what my friend had but I know it was delicious! We had a bottle of the house red which was light and fruity - perfect for a lunch time drink. The staff were all really friendly - relaxed to just the right amount and there if we needed them for anything. All in all, it was just what we'd hoped and we'll be back for sure.

We have been to other restaurants in this chain where we have always had excellent meals. This was our first visit to this outlet. Meal was excellent when we got it - would we go again - yes. Our problem was that we received our pre dinner drinks, and starters, all fine, but then we waited and waited. Eventually we called a waitress over, apologized, came back - dinner would be a few minutes - fine. Another 10 minutes no meal, free basket of bread to nibble on. Called waitress over again asked what is the problem - apologised it would appear order got lost, we were given free bottle of wine and not charged for our main courses. Main meal from starter was nearly an hour of waiting. Staff - excellent - once aware of the problem, apologetic and wanted to make amends which were gratefully accepted.

We took full advantage of the free bottle of wine offer. Beautiful restaurant, fabulous food, friendly service, what a perfect place. My BF and I love it here, it's our favourite restaurant chain and would go out of our way to visit in various cities. I had the French onion soup and it was like a dessert! Gooey, cheesy and full of chopped onions. My partner had the giant garlic bread pretzel and wouldn't let me have any.. then for main I had duck with glazed carrots and green beans, my partner had chicken wrapped in crispy bacon and again wouldn't let me touch it! Totally yummy and delicious, love the French decor, keep sending us your fantastic offers!

Lovely friendly staff, gave us plenty of time to consider the menu - which took a while as there were 4 of us having our twice yearly catch up! Food was great as usual and as a newly diagnosed coeliac I was thrilled to be handed a full page gluten free menu with lots of choice. The staff were all completely on the ball with me being GF and every dish for me turned up with little flag in it to ensure there was no risk of confusion! Full marks for a great experience and when my local one reopens I will be there.

The restaurant is in a nice location with lovely big windows. We had a seat next to the window for breakfast. The service was good; we were a couple, but larger groups with children and couples with babies also came and everyone seemed to be enjoying the space. I had a vegetarian breakfast and I found it a strange combination of food - the food I received was what had been described on the menu, but it wasn't as I'd pictured it. Next time I would stick with the granola and some pancakes. It said there was avocado and tomatoes, and I'd assumed this would be on toast, but it was actually half a sliced avocado, and a fried tomato. The rest of the breakfast included sauteed spinach, eggs and a vegetarian sausage. It just seemed an odd combination. My partner had the non-vegetarian cooked breakfast and enjoyed that.

It was a fantastic evening. We chose 2 starters which we shared, 2 mains and 2 desserts. All of them were lovely. High quality food, mid range prices, nice atmosphere, great servers - not too nosy, not too late to come either when needed. Portion seizes were perfect, not too large to stuff, not too small to leave you wanting for more. Knowing that we were celebrating our anniversary, they went above and betond with the service. All in all, a lovely restaurant, with a great view over the old priory and the square and gorgeous food. Thank you!
