About Côte Covent Garden - Tavistock Street


“Cote is fantastic”
– Michael Winner, The Sunday TimesIt’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.

Further Information

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.

Excellent service and a very good choice on the brunch menu, and great value too. Good to make a reservation as it gets very busy.

As a regular visitor to this branch of Cote in Tavistock Street I decided to have my birthday party here. I realized as this was a Saturday afternoon the restaurant would be incredibly busy because of the pre theatre crowd so booked in advance. The staff were absolutely magnificent and as each guest arrived they were welcomed with a glass of Kir Royale. Both the waiting staff and kitchen staff deserve a medal with 11 people ordering difference starters and main courses etc. and each requiring their own personal preferences as to what they did and did not want. I can honestly say everything was absolutely perfect. The synchronicity which all starters and main courses arrived at the table was fantastic, and I can only complement both the waiting and kitchen staff for the fantastic service. The food as always @ Cote was par excellence both in presentation and taste overall this was one of the most memorable birthdays I’ve had everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and said how fantastic the restaurant is. Once again a thank you to all the staff both kitchen and waiting for making this such a special day. This review is the consensus of all 11 people in the party

We dined at the Tavistock Street branch of cote this evening. I had booked in advance and as it was a special occasion. We chose that special 10 year anniversary menu, I can only say how delighted we were by the exquisite food on offer. For starters I chose the charcuterie board, my colleagues had a crab mayonnaise, Baked Crottin, respectively. For the main course I chose the Roast Duck Breast my colleagues one had the Roast Pork Belly, the other had the Breton Fish Stew. We all finished with the crepe Grand Marnier. The comments that went round the table regarding the food from my friends was they had not had such exquisite food apart from when they dined in Paris. As per usual the service was exemplary and I would like to pass my congratulations on to the kitchen staff as all the dishes were exceptionally well presented and absolutely delicious. I can highly recommend the anniversary menu and as always at cote it is exceptional value for money

We were advised by a friend to book in advance as the Restaurant was popular. We booked for Saturday the 8th of July at 17:30 hrs. When we arrived there were a few people in front of us who had not booked and had to be turned away. We were then immediately shown to our table by the window. Food was very good indeed. Service was efficient and fast. One very small niggle - it was a very warm day but the heating was on by the window! We mildly complained and it was promised that it would be seen too. This was a first visit to Cote Brasserie. The price was very reasonable for the West End. I like the fact that a small percentage (lower than 10%, I think) was added to the bill and a notice given that the gratuity all goes to the staff. We intend to book Charlotte Street branch for next Wednesday we we go to 'An American in Paris'.

Myself and a friend went for a meal after going to a matinee on Saturday afternoon, knowing the restaurant would be busy we pre booked a table for 5.30pm. And despite the fact the restaurant was extremely busy, the waiting staff were extremely attentive, the food and service was up to the excellent standard I have come to expect at this branch of cote. I was quite sad to learn that many of the regular waiting staff that I have come to know over the last four years as a regular customer at this branch of cote are leaving, and I do hope the new waiting staff that are replacing them, will be an improvement on our experience of last week when it appears the regular waiting staff were off duty. I think the upper management need to keep a close eye on the service because restaurants can lose their excellent reputation overnight by poor service.

We had the 3-course pre-theatre lunch. Excellent value at £13.95. Whitebait for two, sea bream (could have been served with some potatoes!) and steak frites, creme caramel and apple crumble - all dishes first-rate ingredients and very well cooked. A glass of muscadet and one of chinon were very good. Total bill for two including service was £43. Service was friendly and efficient, and we enjoyed a relaxing hour and a half lunch before going to our theatre showing. The one jarring note was that when we arrived we were given the choice of three 2-tops - one beside an occupied 4-top, the other two intruded upon by a pillar. We asked if we could sit at an adjacent 4-top (the restaurant was almost empty) but that was refused, so we chose the least uncomfortable 2-top. By the time we left, the restaurant was half full, and we might easily have been given any of half a dozen vacant 4-tops. We won't go back to this restaurant as a couple just because there are so many (TOO many) uncomfortable 2-tops.
