Côte Brasserie - St Katharine's Docks, 1 St Katharine's Way, E1W 1UN London

Further Information

Nestled on St Katharine’s Way by the banks of the Thames, pay a visit to Côte Brasserie and feel as though you’re sat by the Seine. This French restaurant brings the flavours and feel of France to central London with a casual yet refined atmosphere and menu of authentic French cuisine. There’s everything from an early French breakfast (two scrambled eggs with boudin noir, bacon and a field mushroom on toasted brioche) to light lunches, main course meals, and, of course, an array of decadent French desserts.

We recommend starting by sampling the charcuterie board or the steak tartare, before moving on to a light main like the chicken and walnut salad. For something larger, the traditional beef Bourguignon is always a win, as is the half chargrilled Breton chicken served with fries and your choice of sauce, or the pan-fried haddock wrapped in smoky French bacon with braised puy lentils and wilted baby spinach, dill and beurre blanc. Whatever you choose, we’re sure you’ll be more than happy with your choice, so make a reservation at Côte Brasserie at St Katharine Docks now for a French dining experience in the heart of London.

Excellent service, lovely location and good food. Thanks. The table was available and ready upon arrival. Broad choice of menu with a value for money lunch deal which was superb. Will be back again soon.

I eat here a lot - mostly for business lunches but also occasionally in the evening for a private dinner. The food is reliably good, staff are attentive, has cloth napkins (so much nicer than paper) and refreshes the lunchtime menu monthly. Add to that a view of boats - what is not to like.

This place has a great location with a view over the dock; there is nice outdoor seating area for fine weather. There's the usual Côte menu, with some good value set meals for lunch and early supper. Our French inion soup was copious and tasty, so too was a starter of pear, endive, Stilton and walnut. Salmon fish cakes were good and came with a small salad on the side. Smoked haddock parmentier was a bit on the salty side, but otherwise fine. The wine of the day was a very acceptable French dry white. Service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely come back when next in the area.

We were a party of 8 on a Saturday late afternoon celebrating a birthday. The food and service was good. We brought a surprise cake and candles into the restaurant for the birthday girl and the staff were very amenable and presented the cake and candles after the main meal. There was only one hiccup and that was that one member of the party seemed to have been overlooked with his main meal. It arrived soon after we asked the waitress where it was. Overall though, it was a good experience in a lovely location.

Spent a really enjoyable evening at Cote. We chose to sit on a table on the terrace, overlooking the picturesque St Katherine Dock and were served by an excellent waiter who was attentive without being overbearing. We were able to enjoy our birthday celebration in a perfectly relaxed way . The food was very good, as always, and the menu offered a great choice for all, French in style, well cooked and presented. We enjoyed two excellent bottles of wine and wandered home well satisfied with our birthday celebration at Cote.

Have visited this restaurant many times and it has been fine but last night was very disappointing. I ordered fishcakes with poached egg - no egg. when I queried it the manager(?) said it didn't come with an egg but if I wanted he would get me one! I have checked and it is on the menu. Ordered dark choc pots which we have had before but what turned up was not what they usually serve - tasted horrid and the running chocolate was grainy. We complained and they did change them. I asked for a glass of wine which didn't turn up so had to reorder and then they tried to charge me for the glass I didn't receive. And to cap it all no toilet paper in the toilets! If I hadn't had such good experiences before I would certainly not go back!

Food was up to the usual standard and service was very good - as it usually is. However, the big downside is about the noise level - which is very high indeed. It was only just possible, with a table of 4 people. to converse normally. Later this week, I will be a member of a group of 6 people and we will go somewhere else as I fear that a table of 6 would make conversation impossible given the level of noise at this Cote. I strongly recommend Cote management seek some means of ameliorating this problem. It is a significant downside for an otherwise excellent restaurant.

We were given a wonderful table with a view of St Katherine's Docks. Our Waitress, Alice, was really welcoming and very attentive. It was my Husband's birthday and she went out of her way to make sure our experience was special. She even flambéd our crepes at the table! The food was perfect and the 3 course Anniversary menu included a glass of complimentary Champagne. Thoroughly recommended.

I really liked the decor, atmosphere and service of this lovely restaurant (despite it being a chain) next to the Tower of London. We chose it for its location to the Tower actually - we were going to see the Ceremony of the Keys and wanted to get supper somewhere convenient first. I would recommend the food (we had fish/salads/chips) - it was tasty and reasonably priced.

The quality of the food was excellent. The service was also very good. Quick but not rushed, polite and efficient. The only downside was the large group with children allowed to run around the restaurant. Staff were very good at moving tables of other customers who had clearly complained. We were tucked just clear enough that we weren't bumped into and could put up with the noise. We'll definitely be back when we're in the area though.

Nice position for restaurant. Good table, not too close to entrance with a view of the dock. Gluten free menu, very helpful waitress who asked if there was a milk intolerance too and was able to identify which items on the menu had milk in. the food service was slightly slow. Steak asked medium to well done (more on the well done) but still quite bloody. My steak was very gristly but didn't ask for a replacement due to lack of time. Sides and starters good. Coffee good.

A lovely venue. It was very hot but we had a seat on the veranda so it was cool and a nice view over the marina. Because it was so hot we weren't very hungry but the food we had was good and the service was friendly and efficient. Please bring the brand to Ringwood, we need you!

The staff of the restaurant is great, nice and attentive at every moment. The food very good, french style and tasteful. The terrace near to the docks great for a familiar or couple luch or dinner. We didn't went with children but there were families in the other tables and the staff was great with them.

Visited cote Saturday evening 2nd April. Me and the wife both thoroughly enjoyed the meal and returned for breakfast before we travelled home. This too was very good. Much better than the mass produced in most hotels.Cost of eating here very reasonable for London. Staff pleasant and helpful food arriving very swiftly.Would 100% visit again.

The food was delicious and so was the wine. Although the wine was served too warm. We had a great time. The down point was that our table was close to the door, which the staff kept leaving open. It was a cold evening and the breeze was very unpleasant. Our interventions didn't help much, likely because closing it was a real strength exercise and there were people outside waiting to be served. Note to the management: Fix the door.

The view on the outside promenade was lovely for a summer night, and although I had to send my steak back as it was a little over done, the replacement came back perfect and very tasty. The service was brilliant and help make the night a great success.

The food was amazing perfectly cooked, however service wasn't the fastest it took about 15-20 mins before anyone came to get our drink orders, cant complain about the food thou, if your okay to wait and not in a hurry then its worth a visit. luckily we had no plans for the night.

Lovely helpful staff, great selection of tasty food. I was really impressed with the vegetarian menu. Hubby really enjoyed his crab salad and pork belly. I loved the French onion soup and the veggie sausages and crepes. Great wine selection and a lovely setting.

I rated this as 4 because our main courses weren't very hot. I have often had the duck and cherries at other Cote restaurants, it's one of my favourites, for some reason here it was smothered with a very tasteless sauce which spoilt the whole dish. The service was excellent and both starters and desserts were fine and it is a super location.

Food serine & ambience were excellent. Our server was very accommodating for one our fussy eaters. Meal ordered but wasn't aware it came with a cream sauce and they happily changed it and made her another one without the cream sauce

Very average food, initially the female server took our drinks order with requests for bread & olives, bread did not come until the starters were served and drinks order was incorrect, missing some items. Young male server took over her tables and he was efficient. Food was very average, we remember it being much better in the past and certainly would recommend St Martins Lane Cote restaurant over St Katharine'svDock Cote. There are far better restaurants in this area notably Bravas Tapas.

The booking experience is seamless, it is a good practice that Cote contacted me on the day to confirm the booking. Overall, we had a great lunch at Cote, St Katherine's Docks. The food was delicious and service was timely.

Almost faultless. Perfect service, waitress was very friendly and not over pushy so atmosphere was a relaxed one; didn't feel like we were being rushed. Food really lovely. Only slight complaint was pudding was slightly warm, not hot, but other than that I would definitely return.

Good service and good food. However, there were some issues with the meals we ordered. The sides that came with the meals were different to those listed on the menu. They were still delicious but it would have been good to have been informed when ordering.
