This was the first time I've eaten at Cote and I have to say that on the whole, it was very pleasurable. It was my partner's birthday and the maitre d' was very friendly and accommodating, as were the rest of the staff. The food was delicious and far exceeded the quality I'd expect from a chain restaurant. All in all, a fantastic meal. My only grumble is the 12.5% "optional" service charge. £11.25 on a £90 bill is absolutely taking the p*ss and yes I know in theory that it's optional, but trust me, nobody enjoys having the conversation about removing it with the waiting staff. I'd have gladly left a £10 tip without being made to feel like I had to. This practice is, in my opinion, a nasty one. You're already no doubt making a tidy profit on the menu anyway, and I doubt that the staff see all of this service charge. Get rid of it and leave to to your customer's good will to reward the staff if and when deserved.
It took a long time for someone to take our order and then it took over half an hour for the food to be bought to us.
This was the first time I had been for dinner and I will be going back again I had the seabass with the fennel and potato mash - that was really tasty. and had the apple crumble and vanilla ice cream for dessert ( I could have eaten another one) and had the Kir Royal as my aperitif :-)
Housed in a gorgeous white townhouse that oozes Abbeygate Street sophistication, the Bury St Edmunds Côte Brasserie is nothing short of a delight. When dining here, the French food on offer will send your tastebuds into party mode. Not just that, your bank account isn’t going to get upset because the menu offers astounding value as well. A win-win, we believe is the term. Inside this town centre location you’ll be met with typically-French decor that manages to find the line between being casual and igniting a certain sense that you’re spoiling yourself.
When it comes to menus, Côte Brasserie has plenty of them, packed with quality and fit for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The weekday lunch and early evening menu is superb and means two courses for £10.95 or three courses for £12.95, and following that the a la carte is laced with French flavours that are classic and memorable. Try the French onion soup, salmon fishcakes with a dill and wholegrain mustard sauce, roasted duck breast served pink, or a wonderful plate of beef Bourguignon. Casual diners of Bury St Edmunds also go wild for Côte’s 10oz sirloin steak, complimented beautifully by one of four classic sauces. Head to the centre of town this instant and see what all the fuss is about.
