A small, informal restaurant that serves beer and wine as well as simple food.Côte Brasserie cares deeply about the quality of its food and maintaining reasonable prices on its menu, hence this group of French restaurants is extremely popular in the UK. And it’s the same story with this particular restaurant in Bury St Edmunds, a quaint affair serving authentic French fare and providing many good reasons to stop by – a relaxing environment and a commitment to top draw service being just a couple of them. You’ll find Côte Brasserie Bury St Edmunds on Abbeygate Street in the very heart of town, meaning it’s convenient, too. Reserve your table now.
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.
Very nice meal in pleasant surroundings with good, polite service at reasonable cost. Gluten free menu was excellent and varied. Ideal as pre theatre treat.
As usual, excellent service and very good food. There can be no better place to eat for value. There is always a pleasant atmosphere and pleasant service.
As always excellent we had a excellent supper, it is a popular destination for my children when they visit. Many thanks, will come again very soon
A fantastic meal as always with great service. Look forward to returning. The set menu that you do before 7pm is fantastic value which is why I’m guessing the restaurant was so busy.
Note: It is difficult for me to rate my experience because you have not explained whether 1 is excellent or rubbish. Perhaps 6 is excellent - please clarify. We were greeted as we entered Cote and asked to choose a table ,when seated the waiter asked if we would like a drink. We said we would wait until our guest arrived and as we waited we were not pressurized in any way to buy a drink. The waiter brought us water and glasses which were served voluntarily. When our guest arrived the waiter brought to us the complimentary drinks offered as part of our online booking. The waiter furnished us all with a copy of the extensive menu and we placed our order for Starter and main course and requested wine. The food was served very promptly after placing the order. It was delicious non of us chose the same I had asparagus with hollandaise sauce, my son chose French onion soup and my husband black pudding with poached egg and apple it was delicious! For main course we all chose steak with french fries and salad garnish for my husband, my son and I chose vegetables with salad garnish and no fries. Again we very much enjoyed the food. There was no long wait between courses and the waiter called back to see if everything was satisfactory - which it was. We were then asked if we would like to see the desert menu and from that we each selected a sweet, my son had lemon tart with raspberries and my husband and I chose ice cream with hot chocolate sauce - most satisfying. We completed our meal with coffee. The whole experience was a delight in a relaxed friendly atmosphere, the restaurant was busy but not crowded , the staff were courteous and helpful, I can thoroughly recommend Cote in Bury St Edmunds
Like a lot of busy women with domestic responsibilities eating out for me is a great treat and I want to eat food well cooked by someone else - something that I would not do at home. Our meal tonight, for my husband and I before we went to the theatre, was just that - well cooked, nicely presented and very tasty. The experience was enhanced by a complimentary bottle of wine courtesy of the loyalty points - we wouldn't normally buy a bottle of wine unless it is a 'big night out', (If I was out with the girls it might be different!), consequently we ordered 3 courses. The service was good - attentive without being overbearing. All in all a lovely meal. I/we will definitely come again. Thank you.
It was our 3rd visit to Cote and was much as we expected it, very good food and the waiters were very attentive and we weren't kept hanging around waiting for each course. When the food arrived it was nice and hot and we weren't constantly bothered by questions such as "is everything alright ". It is a bit pricey and you have to be mindful of the 12.5% service fee that is automatically added to your bill. I am sure we will be going to Cote again, probably at around Christmas time when we have all had a chance to save up a bit and talk to to bank mananger!
We had a lovely celebration for my daughter's 18th birthday on Sunday 11th June. The staff were great - very kind and helpful, and service was excellent but not at all intrusive. I had mentioned it was an 18th birthday and without asking the staff had gone out and bought an 18th birthday balloon which was tied to our table. We were also treated to a complimentary drink and my daughter was given a complimentary sweet dessert, with a chocolate message piped on the edge of the plate. The food was really good, and we left feeling very happy. Cotes really stepped up to the mark. Definitely return. Thank you !
Cote (Bury St Edmunds) is our favourite restaurant. We are frequent visitors. The atmosphere is great, very relaxed and friendly. The food is always really good, in fact, we've never had a bad meal there. We particularly like the way the food is brought out from the kitchen as soon as it is ready, not sitting around waiting for service. Therefore, it is always served hot. This is my "go to" restaurant and I'm always happy to recommend. Just a minor point- I don't like the complimentay water. It tastes horrible, possibly because it's been sitting around in those stone flasks? No big deal, I just don't drink it!
Five of us went to Cote last Saturday. The food, service and general atmosphere of the restaurant were all of a very high standard. Before retirement beckoned I had four restaurants of my own and I would of been very happy to have the tall young man who served us ( we were sitting fairly near the kitchen door, working in anyone of my restaurants, he was excellent. I was at another restaurant in Bury St Edmunds on the previous Tuesday evening, this cost me twice the price per head as Cote and I enjoyed Cote equally. My Squid followed by Belly Pork were both very good and I loved the fact that we where both very comfortable, without being crammed in by other tables. A really enjoyable experience.
