At Côte Brasserie, pretence is not on the menu. Here you will find only authentic French cuisine, cooked with honesty.

The restaurant itself is elegant and inviting from the outside, then simple yet sophisticated on the inside.

Côte Brasserie champions relaxed, all-day dining as well as high quality ingredients. Once seated here in the New Town you’ll find an appealing and thoughtful menu with tastes fit for any time of day, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. Consider a starter of steak tartare made with cognac, some tuna carpaccio or a rustic French onion soup. If you’re in the mood for something light when it comes to mains then consider goats cheese salad or baked spinach and wild mushroom crepes. That said, if you’d rather something a little more substantial then do try the traditional French beef bourguignon, the roast duck breast with potato gratin or the rich, marvelously satisfying cassoulet de Toulouse. As it’s clear to see, Côte Brasserie brings authentic flavours of France right into the heart of Edinburgh. You simply have to pay this New Town restaurant a visit. Côte Brasserie will wow.
First class food with friendly efficient service. Can be a bit noisy with wood floors and little sound deadening materials. Good value though. The upgraded fixed price menu is probably the best value although selection is a bit more limited.
Everything was up to Cote normal high standards in fact this visit was one of the best Cote experiences. We will certainly return and we highly recommended you try it.
Great food. Friendly staff and child friendly. Lovely experience. The restaurant looks lovely too. We have been several times before and it is still a favourite for us. Will be returning soon I hope
