'Cote is fantastic' – Michael Winner, The Sunday Times
It’s likely you’ve heard of Côte Brasserie because it’s the go-to restaurant in the UK – and particularly in London – if you want fair-priced, well-cooked and authentic French cuisine. And with this particular branch, located on Tavistock Street as one of two Côte Brasseries in Covent Garden, you can expect only the best. Here is relaxed all-day dining in an elegant restaurant that’s surrounded by the buzz of one of the most happening areas of London. As groups of restaurants go, Côte Brasserie is one of the most dedicated and, of course, delicious of all of them. You will not be disappointed.
In the heart of London on Tavistock Street in Covent Garden, this Côte Brasserie makes for perfect pre-theatre or post-museum dining. A stone’s throw from the London Transport Museum, the London Film Museum and several theatres, including the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane, dining at this classic French restaurant is the best way to complement any day out in the West End. That said, the authentic food and dedication to service you’ll find at this Côte Brasserie – one of two in Covent Garden – make a trip to this part of the capital worth it on their own.
The decor at this Covent Garden location is typically French, complemented by a wonderful atmosphere and menu. If you’re stopping by for dinner (breakfast and lunch are available), consider starting with classic calamari or chicken liver parfait, then move on to rump of lamb, cassoulet de Toulouse, or a delightfully fresh Breton fish stew. The selection of steaks is fresh and varied, and you can pair any of them with a classic French Béarnaise, a simple garlic butter, or other delightful sauces. Ah, and we should also add that Côte Brasserie on Tavistock Street serves one of London’s favourite post-theatre menus from 10pm daily.
We were against the clock, it being an interval during the opera, and the staff totally rose to the challenge! Staff were delightful and super efficient. Food was great. BZ!
Our waitress Susanne was absolutely brilliant, very helpful, patient and smiley. The food was very good and excellent value for money. We will definitely return to Tavistock street London
Food of a commendably high standard given the prices, and service that is impressive in a restaurant that is extremely busy every evening. A favourite!
