The historic town of Leamington Spa is one home to Côte Brasserie, a firm favourite among foodies and casual diners. This classic French bistro is located in Regent Court on Livery Street in the town centre, making it the perfect spot to stop and indulge in some Parisian inspired French cuisine. With a light and airy space and outdoor dining area, Côte Brasserie Leamington Spa have also made a commitment to source ingredients of the highest quality to produce their French classics. With corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and English asparagus from Herefordshire, they pay homage to more than one culinary influence.
We recommend beginning with the sautéed salmon fishcakes with baby spinach salad, dill and a wholegrain mustard sauce, then following with the delicious seasonal rump of lamb with Jersey Royal potatoes, English asparagus and mint Hollandaise. Indulging in dessert is a must and Côte’s beautiful crème caramel is nothing short of dreamy when matched with a recommended dessert wine. This, we’re quite sure, is the perfect end to your Côte Brasserie culinary journey. Conveniently located in the town centre, Côte Brasserie does tend to fill up so booking ahead is advised.

We had lunch there using their fixed price menu. The food and service was Excelent. It was very good value. The atmosphere was very pleasant. We were celebrating my mums 92 nd birthday and she very much enjoyed it.
Had a great night out at Cote Leamington. Food lovely and staff attentive. Lots of places to eat but this ranks above most. Also try breakfast, fab!!
We love this restaurant. Most frequently go during breakfast / brunch but have recently had a couple of evening meals with our children. The staff went out of their way to make it special for our daughter ( balloon and card ) she was thrilled . Food and service , as always , excellent.
The cod wrapped in streaky bacon was really tasty. Paired with the house rose which for a house rose is very good value for money
Really easy and effective booking system. Amazing staff - so polite, attentive, just perfect service. The waiter chatted to us, but wasn't over bearing, he was so nice. Food was excellent, wonderfully tasty, good portions, and fast service. We were really impressed with our dishes and told the waiter so. We got our bill promptly, the only thing was that service was included on the bill, so it would have been awkward to have not tipped IF we'd been unhappy with the service. But because it was such a lovely meal, that wasn't a problem to us (I just always think it should be at the customers discretion) When we left, all the staff made eye contac, smiled and said good night. We had a really lovely evening, in a nice environment, excellent food, and a fair price.
The menu was very varied especially if you have ever experienced a brasserie in Paris. The food we received was perfectly cooked and served. The choice of available champagne and wine was excellent and we enjoyed those that we chose. The welcome we received at 12.15 was warm and professional, the service was excellent but did tail off a bit after 2pm (we were there until 4pm), was there a shift change? The flowers that the brasserie gave to my wife were just a lovely thought and were very much appreciated. The atmosphere in the brasserie was agreeably buzzie. The whole experience was just wonderful and all 8 of us, long standing friends together in our party agreed that we hadn't enjoyed a meal such as this for a long time. Well done, Cote.
We had a lovely evening with great service and great food. It was my husband's birthday and we were given a nice booth with a birthday banner and a candle in a complimentary ice cream dessert. The food was perfect in terms of portion size, presentation and taste. I particularly enjoyed the Fish stew with sea bream, prawns, clans, squid and mussels! A great restaurant which is definitely recommended for couples and older families - our 12 year old daughter somehow ate 3 courses of the main menu and thoroughly enjoyed it all.
The food was excellent as always, but the service left a little to be desired. I think our order had got lost and it was a long time before the starter arrived; then, although we were told that our main were waiting for us, they took a long time too! In between, we were given 2 more glasses of bubbly presumanly in recognition of the delay and they were plonked on the table (we hadn't asked for them, or for anything) and a little later the mains appeared. As I said, the cuisine is impressive ad we shall be coming to you again! So 6 for cuisine, 2 for service = 4!
Côte is always excellent, we go at least twice a week and it's consistently of the same high standard. Today Lesley ordered the French toast gluten free style my daughter said it was amazing it's taste yum and they provided extra maple syrup too. The staff are the best in town they go that extra mile, they look after you, they work like it's their own restaurant
I took my husband and two close friends for lunch at Cote Brasserie, Leamington Spa. We were greeted with very pleasant glasses of Kir Royale, followed by an excellent lunch, One bottle of Sauvignon Blanc followed by a superb bottle of Cote du Rhone. Service, as always, was excellent, a charming waitress and very attentive waiters. We look forward to our next visit. Judy Hall.
There was a mix up with our order but it was dealt with in a very professional and satisfactory way. So praise to the staff and management. The food was very good and I would be happy to return. The only thing I would critisize is a "voluntary" 12% tip added to the bill. I have never seen this before (10% is the norm.) and this is setting the wrong example for others to follow.
I would usually rate Cote (Leamington Spa) as 5/5. Last night, they had run out of mussels (which is what we went for) - though that couldn't be helped, you probably had a bad batch. My wife had a minute steak, which was (again) excellent. I've had them before - they are always very good and expertly cooked. I had fish pie (fish Parmentier) which was in a shallow dish and was dry and over-cooked (or over-heated). Not very good at all. The two salads we had wee both excellent. We had two free glasses of kir royale, as it was my birthday. The staff, as ever, were excellent. We will go back but need it to go back to being 5/5 again...
Excellent food once we were there and wonderful service! Note for restaurant - if you're gonna use an external company to manage your bookings make sure they know who has booked what - we had quandoo emailing us asking us why we hadnt attended and then another one asking what we thought, when we had attended and already given feedback! I'd say do not use quandoo because theyre not very good and make you look rubbish tbh which is a shame because you're not! Thanks for a great evening! xx
We had the set lunch (£10.95 for 2 courses) and had an excellent meal. We were impressed by the range of choice on the set lunch menu. The service was good and we had comfortable padded seats on a corner - just right for 2 - in a quiet area of the restaurant, which suited us very well.
Amazing place for breakfast lunch or dinner and the staff are amazing. Would definitely recommend. My go tos are the crepe for breakfast, the steak frites for lunch and the chicken and walnut salad for dinner. Just the fact I know the menu shows I have been there enough times to remember it as I love it.
Quiet lunchtime, good food and presentation. Service good upto and including main course but tailed off afterwards. The minute steaks were good. One of our party had veal, another, Breton chicken also good. Slight niggle, the buttered carrots were soggy and had obviously not been freshly cooked. There was little excuse for this as we had had starters, allowing plenty of time to prep. vegetables.
Greeting was pleasant, table was ready, starters and main courses were very nice. But after the main courses arrived the service seemed to disappear. I had to leave the table and find someone to clear the main course away (which took two goes over a ten minute period). No one came and asked if we wanted deserts or coffee, again I had to leave the table an ask some one for the bill as we were by this time fed up and just wanted to leave. In summary food is good (hence a 3) but what is going on with the management of the place.
Cote Brasserie Leamington is fast becoming one of my favourite restaurants. The service is excellent and they always try to be accommodating with food and special dietary requirements. The food is also very tasty and quick to serve. A place that goes above and beyond expectations in delivering an excellent customer experience.
The whole experience was excellent! The service is always friendly and knowledgeable without being intrusive. The food is always reliably good and I don't think you can beat the price considering the standard. This is one of our favourite restaurants in the area and we always look forward to our next visit.
I visit Cote in Leamington Spa fairly regularly and always enjoy good food and service. On my latest visit, however, I was slightly disappointed with my dessert - a peach crumble. Although the dish it was served in was piping hot, the crumble itself was only luke warm. However, it was quickly replaced - the staff are always very helpful and friendly.
