A mouthwateringly tasty meal, very good service, a pleasant well-priced wine, and a superb value set lunch menu. Would recommend the sea bream and creme caramel. Might have been six stars but for the somewhat loud and intrusive canned music.
Cote always provides delicious food and excellent service at reasonable prices
Another good meal in 1 of our favorite restaurants and food is always good and never delayed good staff.
What makes a great restaurant? That, we think, is a combination of many things, and these many things you’ll find at Côte Brasserie in the heart of Reading. Start with an appealing space which this French restaurant on The Riverside amongst the buzz of The Oracle Centre absolutely is. It’s spacious yet cosy, and it’s typically French. Then add in a dedication to service that’s refreshing to see and a delight to receive. After that, atmosphere? Check. A sense of the restaurant knowing what it’s about? Check. Then, of course, splendid food prepared with high quality ingredients? Yes, check, yes.
Côte Brasserie Reading champions modern, relaxed, all-day French dining, hence quality menus are present around the clock from Breakfast right through until dinner. Dishes are often traditionally French, but that’s not to say you won’t find some that are a little more region-specific. Think French toast or a simple pain aux raisin with coffee for breakfast, chicken and walnut salad for a light lunch, or roast duck breast, rump of lamb or Breton fish stew in the evening. Any or all of these can be complemented nicely by a quality cup of coffee or glass of wine. In fact, you may find yourself sitting on The Riverside feeling like you’re by the Seine.
