About Côte Gloucester

“Here were good ingredients handled with skill and care to create dishes of far higher quality than many I’ve eaten in bistros in France”
– Paul Fulford, Birmingham MailIt couldn’t have been long before Côte Brasserie made it to Gloucester, and it’s also apropos given the French bistro-style restaurant family’s tendency to trailblaze through the UK hinterlands that they’ve set up shop among the exciting developments at The Docks. Possessing all the warmth and quality that this family of restaurants is known for, Côte Brasserie’s Merchant’s Road location at the Gloucester Quays is ideal for a working lunch, a bite to eat after a spot of sightseeing, or for an evening out with friends.

More about Côte Gloucester, Gloucester

“Here were good ingredients handled with skill and care to create dishes of far higher quality than many I’ve eaten in bistros in France”
– Paul Fulford, Birmingham MailThe Gloucester incarnation of what is perhaps the UK’s most recognisable family of French restaurants finds itself down at the spruced up docklands, the Gloucester Quays, alongside a clutch of other eateries, bars, and shops. This ex-industrial quarter is being sensitively transformed, with the beautiful brick warehouses of Merchant’s Road preserved even as they serve a new role. A visit to Côte Brasserie makes you feel as though you’re sat by the Seine.

At Côte Brasserie there’s everything from an early French breakfast (two scrambled eggs with boudin noir, bacon and a field mushroom on toasted brioche) to light lunches, main course meals, and, of course, an array of decadent French desserts. Here in The Gloucester Docks we recommend starting by sampling the charcuterie board or the steak tartare, before moving on to a light main like the chicken and walnut salad. For something larger, the traditional beef Bourguignon is always a win, as is the half chargrilled Breton chicken served with fries and your choice of sauce, or the pan-fried haddock wrapped in smoky French bacon with braised puy lentils and wilted baby spinach, dill and beurre blanc. However you approach this new French restaurant addition to Gloucester’s waterfront, be sure to beat the crowds by booking!

Excellent food and service. We have eaten here many times and food is superb but equally as important the staff actually appear to like you which is in short supply these days in customer service! The online booking requests for preferred seating are also listened to. Well done all round!

Very friendly staff, clean, excellently furnished and (most importantyly), the food was delicious. Online reservation was easy just an hour beforehand and we were expected.

My husband & myself visited Cote, Gloucester Quays for the first time for a celebration and were most impressed with everything. The restaurant was well laid out clean & smart, the staff were most welcoming, friendly & efficient clearing tables swiftly, our main waiter Antonio was most helpful. There was a good choice of menu, meal was cooked just right & most satisfying. The only slight criticism was tables too close together giving no privacy didn't really effect us as the adjacent diners were nearly finished.I was not really happy with the mandatory addition of service charge on the bill I always prefer to chose how much & give it directly to the staff, but went along with it as our waiter seemed to accept it. We will certainly visit this restaurant again.

Its was a lovely sunny day and everyone was in Cote in Gloucester - well not everyone. Very busy and not too many staff on duty, (some were very new - 2 days on nice young man told us) we did have to wait slightly longer than normal, but there were others who waited rather longer than we did. Despite the wait the food was excellent as usual, the starters were really nice, but I would like to see the portion size of the "belly pork increased" it was rather small, the deserts also very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a delightful waitress to take of our table and she was very busy but kept her smile at all times.

We are regular diners at Cote Cheltenham but as we live half way between both, decided to visit Glos. The decor and layout of the restaurant was superb. We were seated in a booth which was private yet we could still feel the atmosphere of the rest of the restaurant. We had slight waitressing problems but spoke to the manager Jonathon, who addressed the issue with no fuss immediately and professionally. The food was beautifully presented and it ate very very well. Thank you - very very impressed and will definitely be visiting again.

Very disappointing. My sister and I were taking my mum out for her birthday but the service was very poor. Waited ages for plates to be taken away despite at least four staff milling around and our waitress even looked over at our table then promptly went off and did something else. My mum's dessert had to go back as it wasn't set and looked curdled. It was replaced and that was fine but we were still charged for it. When I asked for the bill we waited a long time but the waitress who we asked disappeared to the other side of the restaurant and obviously wasn't getting our bill. Another waitress finally came over to us and I said we had asked for the bill but hadn't got it. Of all the staff she was the most efficient as she went and got our bill immediately and even apologised for the wait. It doesn't matter how good the food is when eating out because if the service is lacking it does ruin the occasion. Won't hurry back there.

We dined on a Thursday Lunchtime and it was fairly quiet. We had a mix of set daily menu and A la Carte. Starters were Asparagus Soup + Mackerel & Beetroot Salad both of which were good. Mains were Poulet Grille and Chicken Pillard both were good but the Pillard needed a bit more taste. Dessert was the Iced Berries which was as usual very good. The lunch bill came to £59.85 which includes the tip. Overall a good lunch with good service.

Food was very good. Probably the best creme caramel I've ever had. Service was attentive and helpful but a let down a little by a couple of things. Oil and balsamic wasn't on hand for example when the bread arrived and by the time the waitress had found some the bread was nearly all gone. I'm never keen on imposed gratuities and whilst the bill said it was optional the fact that it's on there always grates me. I didn't want to create a fuss in the company I was with however so let it go.
