“Simple yet great value”
– Olive MagazineOne of many compliments we can pay Côte Brasserie is that dining here never feels like a chore. Quite the opposite, in fact, a meal here is effortless. All one must do is sit back amongst typically French decor and enjoy typically French food served with typical French hospitality – easy peasy. This particular Côte Brasserie is in Dorchester nestled on the charming Brewery Square, and when in the centre of this lovely town, it’s almost rude not to pay Côte a visit. Nowhere else will you find this calibre of dining experience for such a wallet-friendly price tag.
When Dorchester wants French food, the black and white striped awnings of Côte Brasserie are extended from morning until night. In other words, all-day dining is championed at this marvellous French restaurant, and the atmosphere could not be more relaxed. Set right in the middle of Dorchester at Brewery Square and almost equidistant from Dorchester West and Dorchester South train stations, this Côte Brasserie is perfectly placed and, in fact, one of the larger restaurants when compared to its brothers and sisters up and down the UK.
Breakfast with French toast, eggs benedict, florentine, or royale, or opt for a simple French pastry with cup of quality coffee. Should your visit be a little later in the day, however, then light lunch with chicken and walnut salad with French beans or some sauteed salmon fish cakes, complete with a dill and wholegrain mustard sauce. As terrific and continental as all of that is, we must say that it’s the larger plates where Côte Brasserie Dorchester really shows off. Try the roast duck breast served pink with potato gratin, the rump of lamb or a traditional beef Bourguignon. This restaurant is a town centre treat so reserve your table now.
The atmosphere was lovely, the menu is so comprehensive, the food was delicious, well-cooked, beautifully presented, and the service was really pleasant and efficient - what more could you ask for!
Excellent meal and service yet again. Staff very helpful and food delicious as always. Nice atmosphere and we like the way the menu changes regularly
We do so enjoy the food here, and the staff are delightful. We’ve been served by the lovely Romanian girl before. The calamari are perfect - still soft but in a crunchy coating, whilst my husband enjoyed the excellent French onion soup. and the pork on the October specials was excellent, enjoyed by 2 of us whilst our friend loved the butternut squash risotto. We all followed this with the October special Grand Marnier crepe.
