About Côte Oxford

“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.

Further Information

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.

First visit. Good experience. Staff were attentive and helpful, and paid careful attention to my ( coeliac ) wife's requirements. Service excellent. Food was appetising and portion size was good. Would recommend a visit...but book first !!

Excellent food and wonderful service. Great value for money. As a coeliac I was very well looked after and staff were very aware of the problem.

Great food, great service, what more could any one ask. I have used around seven different locations of Cote restaurants and the food is always of the same quality wherever you go.

With good food, friendly service, a nice ambiance and good value for money. I would recommend this restaurant in the centre of Oxford, near theatre and cinemas.

Lovely food and attentive service. Our starters were sublime; the French onion soup was rich and tasty and the Boudin Noir (sautéed French black pudding with caramelised apples, poached egg and frisée salad) was delightful. For the main course we chose Côte de Boeuf to share (chargrilled 22oz aged rib-eye steak, served sliced off the bone, with frites and béarnaise sauce), which was perfectly cooked and delicious. A mishap in the kitchen meant our steak was delayed but the waiter and manager wasted no time in rectifying the situation; our main course was on the house. We were very impressed with this. Mistakes happen it's how they are dealt with that counts. Top marks to Côte Oxford. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening. Would certainly eat there again, sadly we live in Margate so it will be a while.

Really nice atmosphere, super fast service and delicious food. We were really happy with everything we ordered and as one plate was taken away it was replaced with the next course. If there are any criticisms at all, it would only be that the service was so fast we didn't properly relax into conversation like we usually do going out for dinner and they add 12.5% tip to the bi automatically - we usually pay a tip anyway but it might make some people uncomfortable that they can't choose their own tip unless they want to have an awkward confrontation with a waiter to ask them to take it off. Otherwise will definitely come back!

Sadly this was not the best experience at Cote Oxford. We booked as we were going to the theatre nearby and arrived in very good time for our booking at 5.15 pm. We ordered within about 10 minutes of arrival when there were a lot of tables free but the two starters didn't actually arrive until about 10 to 6 and then the four main courses arrived some 1 hr 10 mins after our original order. We were advised several times that it was busy but that is what you would expect and I am sure as a restaurant hope for on a Saturday evening. When we asked for the bill we mentioned about the very long delay and asked for this to be reflected in the bill which it was plus we have been given a Cote business card that gives us a free bottle of wine on our next visit. Staffing levels on a weekend definitely need to be reviewed as when you have a time limit you need to feel confident that this will be met. Food was OK but 3 out of the 4 meals were cool!! Not as we would expect and Cote will need to buck up their ideas if they expects to retain its business in a very competitive restaurant scene in Oxford.

This restaurant is always very busy so best to book especially on Saturday night. In fact we had booked but had to wait a while for our table but we were given a complimentary drink while we waited. The only thing is the restaurant is small and there is no seating area to wait and you end up stood in the doorway or passage. However, excellent meals of Belly pork and steak and very good service made up for it. Service charge is on the bill but I'm not sure if waiters get it or not as forgot to ask. I noticed there is a set lunch for around £10 so worth trying that out. We will go again.

We arrived half an hour late due to a bus problem, but the staff got us seated right away and we not only had a 3 course meal with a delicious bottle of Picpoul, but the food was excellent and we were out within 1 hour to make it to the theatre. Normally we would like to take more time to enjoy each course, but we really appreciated the efficient and courteous service to get us to the show on time. Also we like the atmosphere at Cote Oxford. We'll certainly go back again.

A bit mixed! First we hadn't realised (from looking on your web site) that your three course special offer was not available at weekends and we did not find your weekend specials attractive. You had run out of our choice of starter - mussels - your ARE a French Restaurant? and you had also run out of my wife's all time favourite dessert - Creme Brulee! Having said that, the staff were all very welcoming and attentive and the food we did have was excellent and the manager made up for the problems with a reduction in the bill so all in all we will be happy to come back another day!
