More about Côte Cardiff Bay, Cardiff

If you’re enjoying a day out in the heart of Cardiff, chances are you’re going to be heading to Cardiff Bay. When that’s the case, a French meal at Côte Brasserie – whatever the time of day – is essential. This is a fantastic spot on Mermaid Quay, just down the road from Cardiff Bay train station and a stone’s throw from Wales Millennium Centre, the Welsh National Opera, and the famous Roald Dahl Plass. There’s a lot going on, and Côte Brasserie is the perfect pit stop before, during, or after it all.

Everything at Côte Brasserie is inspired by the brasseries of Paris, and this one at Cardiff Bay is no exception. The decor radiates elegance and the menu is oozing with charm. Côte is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply just a coffee. Either way, produce is fresh and dishes are prepared with oodles of French passion. If dining from the a la carte then consider starting with steak tartare or some crab mayonnaise with avocado and toasted sourdough. Past that, Cardiff’s Côte Brasserie offers light mains in the way of chicken and walnut salad. Then plenty of prime meat, fresh fish, and corn fed poultry from Normandy. Reserve your table at this gem on Cardiff Bay now.

Spotlessly clean with very professional and polite, friendly staff. They learned that is was my birthday and we had a complimentary glass of Sparkling. Good choice of menu and a very tasty meal which was well presented. It is my favourite restaurant in Cardiff Bay.

We are regular customers of Côte at Cardiff bay. And on all our visits the food and service has been first class. If your visiting the Millennium theatre this is the place for your pre theatre lunch or dinner. Lovely unhurried atmosphere the staff are attentive but not overly so. The Breton fish stew in particular is truly wonderfull. Also watch out for their monthly specials.
