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.
