More about Côte Exeter, Exeter

Exeter is undergoing a sort of foodie revolution, with food and wine festivals and increasingly diverse and international dining options, and French restaurant Côte Brasserie in the city centre is leading the way in establishing this vibrant city as the foodie capital of the South-West. Situated in Cathedral Yard overlooking Cathedral Green, the team at Côte Brasserie have created a stunning restaurant and an equally as stunning menu and wine list, to offer guests a truly special experience. The perfect spot to bring the family or go for a romantic date night, Côte Brasserie has expertly created a space to suit everyone.

With an all-day menu, Côte Brasserie is open from breakfast through until dinner. This Exeter favourite has an extensive list of options, and from the evening menu we recommend starting with the crab mayonnaise with avocado, cucumber, capers, and tarragon with toasted sourdough bread for a refreshing beginning to the evening, before a main of the incredible seasonal rump of lamb with Jersey Royal potatoes, English asparagus and mint Hollandaise. Located in the heart of the city centre, this French speciality does tend to fill up so it’s advisable to book in advance to avoid waiting.

A very pleasant lunchtime meal with your excellent staff and delicious food once again! Your blood orange Martini should be given an award🤗🤗 I wish I had taken the name of our waitress, because she was really top of her league.

The whole experience was fantastic. I booked way in advance to get a Valentine's Day Table, but a week before someone from the restaurant called up to let me know that they would be doing a set menu. It was great to be kept informed so we didn't turn up expecting something else! The food was amazing as usual and all the staff were really attentive and professional. It was quite noisy but that was just the buzz of the atmosphere, it didn't cause any issues at all. If you want a slightly quieter evening you can always ask to be seated downstairs where it is a bit more chilled.

A lovely family outing for valentines day. Nice food and excellent service. The children were very welcome as always and the small error with their meal was rectified promptly with their steaks cooked from fresh as the first ones were served with butter on.
