Further Information

Côte Brasserie is committed to providing diners with the most authentic French experience possible, and that’s why they put so much care into sourcing the best ingredients in order to create the world famous cuisine for a domestic UK audience. The pork rillettes and Charentais melons come directly from the famous Rungis market in Paris, while the corn-fed chicken is sourced from rural Brittany. Start your day off at Côte Brasserie in Hale à la française with the crêpe complete (a warm crepe with two-free range eggs, bacon and shaved Gruyère cheese), or the croque monsieur. Tuck into a light meal at lunchtime like the tuna niçoise, spinach and mushroom crepes or salmon fishcakes, or go all out with a three-course meal in the evening.

We recommended beginning with the French onion soup before moving on to the sautéed salmon fishcakes with baby spinach salad, dill and a wholegrain mustard sauce, then round off the experience with some creme brulee or chocolate mousse. Experience a little piece of Paris in Hale at Côte Brasserie on Ashley Road. A popular Trafford choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seats can fill up quickly so remember to book ahead to avoid missing out. Bon appetit!

As always at Hale the service was excellent, the food was as I would have wished for and , overall, a most enjoyable meal. It remains my favourite restaurant in the area.

Throughly enjoyed our lunch today in the company of friends. We all chose from the well priced set lunch menu and the choice of garnished pate for 3 and my langoustines were all very tasty. For mains 2 praised their choice of moules in a cream sauce, the charred chicken breast and my steak frites were all highly rated. We did not intend to have puds but with apple crumble and chocolate pot on offer who could resist.? We rounded off with coffee. The service was efficient and very pleasant without being intrusive. Our choice of wine was unavailable but our waitress redeemed the situation by offering a very acceptable alternative at the same price. I would recommend this venue.

Four of us went to Cote on Saturday evening and had a lovely time. We all had different starters and main courses and we were all delighted with the food, presentation and service.

My husband and I enjoyed an evening meal recently. I had a Roquefort salad and hubby had the calamari both simple and tasty. My main dish was pork belly and hubby had a huge juicy steak. Desserts were creme caramel and ice cream with hot chocolate sauce followed by coffee and calvados. We also enjoyed a very nice bottle of pouilly-fuisse I would like to say that the menu is good, food and service very good. It was a fairly busy Saturday night and the only thing that let it down for us was a 20 minute wait for the dessert but this was rectified quickly after I complained and coffee was taken off the bill. Overall a most enjoyable evening

Slightly chaotic but the food was nice enough. The staff who greeted us didn't ask if we had a reservation but we got seated after some confusion about how many parties had turned up and who was with who. My wife did get hit by the waiter taking the disabled access ramp away from the front door because it hadn't been secured properly. The kitchen is located upstairs and the staff have to bring all to food down the stairs that lead to the toilets. Not sure I'm comfortable with the possible hygiene issues this may pose. When my wife went to the toilet she met a waitress on the stairs who had dropped a tray of food. It turned out to be our starter so we were given complimentary bread while we waited. The food was reasonable for the price paid and the decor and surrounds are pleasant. On balance I wont be hurrying back as there is plenty of competition in Hale and the toilet / kitchen thing doesn't sit well with me.

I really like the ambience of this restaurant; it is stylish but not pretentious, very comfortable and welcoming. Tables are a good size (I often find restaurant tables for two are very small). The service is very friendly, prompt and attentive without being intrusive. And the most important thing is the food, which is excellent, and reasonably priced. The menu is very interesting and varied and now they have a vegetarian menu, which suits me. The other thing I really like about it is there is no music; many restaurants in Hale have loud music to accompany your meal, which really detracts from the pleasure of the meal. Overall, faultless, and I would recommend it highly.

A total surprise, i anticipated the usual chain restaurant offering and service, how wrong I was. I had to change our on line booking by phone it was dealt with courteously and efficiently. This carried through to our welcome and the service from our waiter Elliot. On querying two of the dishes on the menu he sought and advice from the kitchen and returned promptly with confident answers. The food was served in a timely fashion, hot and well presented, none of the side dishes nor drinks were forgotten or delayed. All in all an exemplary result compared with the myriad of chain restaurants that have opened in and around Manchester of late. Well done!

Good food and excellent service, but the menu a bit limited, so only on the list for an occasional, rather than a regular visit. Main negative issue was the 12.5% optional service charge, which we think is taking the mickey. We always leave a tip if the service is good - but like to decide how much - and really object to this being stuck on the bill - for a big party, maybe acceptable, but for a party if 2, think not! Be interested to know how many people don't spot service has been added and add even more! Sharp practice in our view.

The food is great, staff very (but not intrusively) friendly and helpful. Space between tables is a little small, so you willnotice other dinners coming and going. If you ask, there is a wheel chair ramp as well as the standard few steps for entry and exit. If you don't like steps, ask to be on the main floor, as there is a small sunken area at the back. The lunch time special menu is great value at £11-13; but vary away from that and the cost grows unexpectedly! The 4 of us at lunch yesterday agreed that this is a jolly good place.
