There’s no finer example of the brilliance of Côte Brasserie than at this particular restaurant in the glorious Tunbridge Wells. With an array of delectable dishes on offer, we recommend beginning your meal with the warm roquefort salad with endive, walnuts, croutons and a warm roquefort cheese dressing, then continuing for a main of fish parmentier – cod, haddock, prawns and salmon cooked in a creamy white wine and leek sauce then topped with mash potato and Gruyère cheese. It’s also an idea to keep some room to sample the praline crêpe served with caramelised bananas and crème chantilly for dessert – it will be worth it.
Côte Brasserie Tunbridge Wells is situated along Mount Pleasant Road in the town centre and also offers weekend specials with the choice of half a succulent roast chicken, steak frites or the delicious Côte burger. Also a stone’s throw from several of the stunning theatres in the town centre, Côte Brasserie Tunbridge Wells supports the Assembly Hall theatre – enjoying a delicious meal before catching a show makes for the perfect evening out.
Good food well presented and reasonable prices. GOOD ATMOSPHERE. Service responsive without being intrusive. The Crab Bisque was a little peppery but improved with the addition of butter. French Onion Soup delicious.
A long lunch, a set menu of a very tasty cauliflower, followed by a beautifully well cooked haddock on crushed peas, which was delicious, and a pot au chocolat which was all nicely executed. Service, while good, still feels occasionally ever so slightly rushed, meaning the staff get very little time to build any kind of rapport with their guests. Still well worth a visit, nevertheless. The manager is still excellent.
As always, good food and pleasant staff. As service goes, it can occasionally feel a little bit rushed, or a little bit impersonal. The manager is excellent.
