Waitress was very polite & friendly. Food was very good. Overall was a very pleasant experience.
On arrival I discovered that I had sent in a pre-order form from 12 mths ago. ! It could have been a disaster. Luckily I had a hard copy of the correct one with me. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, and took it all in their stride. Everything was served exactly as ordered at just the right time, and our party of 16 had a most enjoyable evening. We'll be back.
Excellent food and the staff were most helpful we went prior to the opera had a great experience and will certainly be booking again
Fantastic! Excellent service and really delicious charcuterie, pork belly and beef bourginion. Thanks to all the team at Cardiff Bay.
Cote is, simply, reliable. Food is always prepared to a consistent and high standard. Staff are well trained, striking the right note between friendly and professional. Customers are only bothered and interrupted once when in the middle of their third mouthful of the main course by being asked "Is everything all right?" (a pet hate of mine - if we're munching contentedly OF COURSE everything is all right - otherwise we would be turning red in the face, frowning, turning over bits of the food on the plate and inspecting it with a look that says "unimpressed" and generally looking grumpy - and if everything is all right we do NOT want to be interrupted.... Grrr). But as this affliction is obvioulsy one of the ten commandments in the world's standard reference manual on "how to train a table server", Cote still gets a thumbs up, as at least their staff do it relatively unobtrusively. But for all of this, they still get one demerit point and I score 5 instead of 6. Tales are big enough to avoid feeling cramped and, finally, the bill is reasonable for good food cooked fresh (budget £40 a head including drinks for three courses). In the last year I have visited Cote at Covent Garden, Windsor, Bristol and Cardiff Bay and have enjoyed all four visits. Keep it up!
I went here for breakfast and what great service. Yes, this is a chain restaurant but do they offer good value food along with good hospitality and professional service!! I have to admit this is probably one of the BEST Côte Restaurant’s I’ve been to. I’ve been to at least 10 across the UK. From the moment you step in, you feel welcomed and valued, right until the time you leave with a genuine and meaningful good bye. The meal was well cooked and tasty, I had the full breakfast which comes along with a hot beverage of your choice, fruit juice and toast with three kinds of jam. The atmosphere was perfect with a great view of the Welsh Millennium centre in the background. It’s been an absolute pleasure dining here and I would definitely be back when I return to Cardiff in the near future. I was there on Tuesday morning, 17 July. Well done to the two staff members running the breakfast service and to the rest of the team who made it such a great experience!!
We had a wonderful evening. I had mentioned when booking that we were celebrating my wife’s birthday and we were greeted with kir royales! We love Côte and have never been disappointed with the meal itself. Tonight the moules starter was excellent (still surprised though that this French restaurant does not automatically provide bread with the starter!), the mushrooms with the pastry topper was really tasty too. For mains the fish pie was brimming with fish (including lots of juicy prawns) and the Breton chicken was moist and tasty. All rounded off with the ice cream dessert (my wife’s served with a birthday candle 😀). Overall excellent as always. The staff work hard and are efficient and courteous especially on an evening when the restaurant was packed there being both a WNO opera and a BBC concert in the WMC. We’ll be back.
We always come here prior to a show in the Millennium Centre. The food is always good and the set menus are real value for money. It can be a little noisy as everything is a hard surface so sound just bounces off - especially if it’s full of women going to see Calendar Girls. That can sometimes affect the conversation especially if there are any members of the party that are a little hard of hearing. That aside, the staff are always friendly and the customer service is always excellent. Booking online is also convenient and I would recommend as it can fill up quickly. We are regular customers and will continue to be as long as the quality remains. We are yet to have a bad meal. Well done Côte Brasserie.
First time visitors. The previous week we had been to a 'top' restaurant in Cardiff. However, the consensus was that the Cote was a better experience, the food was just as flavoursome and the extra space we had made it more relaxing as a place to eat. We were met with a smile and friendly faces. The standard of customer care then continued to be excellent throughout the evening. Our food was served without delays and the menu has encouraged us to plan a return, to try different items. It was almost like being back in France on holiday! Finally, I liked the service charge being added to the bill with the written assurance that the staff would share it. All in all , a great night was had by all.
Côte has this uncanny ability to be both elegant and relaxed at the same time. Six of us went there on a rainy night to celebrate my partner’s birthday. The atmosphere inside was warm, inviting and full of energy., but perhaps a bit noisier than I expected as it was almost full. Our servers could not have been nicer. The food? Just amazing - fresh and cooked to perfection. I ordered the ribeye steak and it was heavenly. We ordered drinks, starters, french onion soup, main mail and desert. We paced ourselves as the food was delivered like clockwork. They knew when to bring the food to us and the service was immaculate. All the guests at our table had a lovely time.
