“The set lunch here is a bargain”
– Good Food GuideCôte Brasserie in the picturesque Tunbridge Wells has made quite the name for itself as being the go-to restaurant for quality French cuisine. Specialising in traditional and regional French dishes, this Côte Brasserie is located in the centre of the town on Mount Pleasant Road and thus gives this popular holiday destination a dose of French culinary culture. Côte Brasserie succeeds in creating authentic French cuisine while remaining affordable and relaxed, and it’s situated close to several theatres and the opera house. A visit to Côte Brasserie Tunbridge Wells is therefore a must while exploring all that this area has to offer. Book to avoid disappointment.
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.
Great food and service, as always. Making the reservation was easy, the staff were attentive and the food was really yummy. Great evening was had by all...
Visited early before going to local theatre, quick and friendly service even though the restaurant was very busy, food very good too! Would highly recommend.
Good service with friendly staff. Good set menu. Ideal location for dining before going to the Assembly Halls. Free glass of prosecco a nice touch
Very good and prompt service thank you, as we were going to the theatre the food was very good and there were no problems Friendly staff as always 👍
Côte Tunbridge Wells is based on lovely location in the middle of town. The service is very good and the staff are helpful and friendly. The food is is good quality and the lunchtime / pre 7.00 pm set menu is excellent value. The wine-list is limited but there is always a bottle to found in your price range that will complement the food. All in all a good dining experience.
It was the first day of the new Prestige set menu so thought we’d try it. It’s an excellent addition to the already first class choice offered by the other two menus. The food was delicious, great value and the service professional; prompt, courteous and always with a smile. We have never failed to enjoy dining at Côte Tunbridge Wells and most heartily recommend it.
Outstanding customer service. We arrived with vouchers for a free Kir Royale. The waitress noticed them before we had even presented them and arrived to take our order armed with a tray of drinks! A lovely touch. We had our first course which was delicious - Eggs Benedict and Mackerel Rillettes - and then my husband became unwell. (nothing to do with the food, which was perfect). We had to leave in a rush and our waitress, Gaby, was incredibly kind, offering to call an ambulance or a taxi. She even asked me to let her know how my husband was the next day. Just outstanding care and concern. We eat at Cote regularly and we will definitely be back. Thank you so much.
We had booked a table for 5.30 pm but actually completed our shopping half an hour earlier so went into Cote to enquire if we could possibly have a table and this posed no problem at all. By this time my friend and I were desperate for a glass of wine so ordered this immediately and it was brought straight away. The starters of Salt Cod and Pate were really nice and we both had the Steak with Frites which was amazing. We were both very sorry that we had to cut our visit short in order to catch the last bus home!! All in all a very good experience with a great ambience and faultless waiting service.
We had booked early as we were going to theatre. This branch of Cote is a regular venue for us pre-theatre. The delightful Manager showed us to our table (of our choice) and very quickly had a waitress come and attend to us. They were incredibly busy as I think almost every diner was going to the same show. They were efficient with the service and the food was excellent. At no time did we feel hurried despite having only just over an hour available. We were particularly impressed by the Manager who seemed to be very caring of her staff but was equally busy herself doing whatever was needed to ensure that everything ran smoothly.
The service was excellent and food arrived prompt but not rushed. Cote has always been a favourite restaurant but I'm beginning to find it not as good value as it used to be. But for the most part the quality is good except for the dessert we ordered. We ordered the praline pancake for dessert, the pancake had either been reheated in a microwave or been standing around on the hot plate for a while as it was inedible - so hard we couldn't cut it. But they deducted this off the bill without having to ask and did apologise. I've never been a fan of adding 12.5% to the bill, I would prefer the menu prices to reflect the cost to supply the meal and then if you feel you've had exceptional service a tip could be left.
