“Côte is a winner, try it”
– Chris Gray, Oxford TimesStudents at the neighbouring University of Oxford History Faculty building are particularly well placed to enjoy a thorough exploration of the classic nooks and crannies of affordable French brasserie-style cuisine at Côte Brasserie’s George Street outpost. However, the whole hungry population of the city of dreaming spires are likely to want to book a table at this sought-after spot in the city centre, given Côte’s famous menu and inimitable atmosphere accompanied by service that’s at once polished and relaxed. Côte is for sure a dining experience you won’t forget in a hurry.Dear diners, to reserve for groups of more than 8 people, please contact the restaurant directly.
Breakfast at Côte Brasserie’s Oxford outpost begins at a satisfying 9am. Book an early table if you work or study in or near the city centre and begin the day à la française with traditionally simple fare washed down with plenty of quality coffee or tea, from English Breakfast to fresh mint. Croissants, pain aux raisins or chocolat, croque monsieur or madame keep proceedings simple, but you’re more than welcome to take morning dining up a notch with the crêpe complète, eggs benedict, florentine or royale, and much more besides.
As the UK’s largest purveyor of quality, affordable French cuisine, the Côte Brasserie family is perhaps best known for its lunch and dinner offering. Step into Oxford’s George Street outlet between 12 noon and 7pm Monday to Friday to enjoy two or three courses for a fantastic price, or check out Côte’s monthly weekend specials that always cleave close to the principles of rustic, no-fuss French food. Whether you book a table to share half a chargrilled, corn-fed Breton chicken or dip in and out for one of the plats rapides, you’re sure to be booking at this Oxford city centre restaurant again.
We are regular customers in Cote. We decided to spend our Sunday day in Cote Oxford. We had a good time in the restaurant. This is a nice place to have a good Sunday lunch.
We had a family reunion at the Côte Oxford. The food and service was excellent. However, the wine, by the glass, was very expensive at £8.20.
Six of us had a great lunch here celebrating an eightieth birthday. The food was excellent, served by friendly and welcoming staff - we weren’t rushed but nor were we ever kept waiting. Can’t fault Cote, it’s my go-to restaurant.
