“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.
Authentic French style food, simply delicious. varied choice and great value.
We enjoyed an excellent meal and service was quick and pleasant. We are always pleased with our visits to Cote. The restaurant is always very buzzy and we go regularly. Would recommend.
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.
Excellent service and the best value for money in Tunbridge Wells. Delicious, authentic French food in a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. You can’t ask for more!
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.
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.
I certainly do like the cuisine at Cote; it is, I think, the nearest thing you will get in England to true French cuisine. Delighted with tonight's choices (lamb chops done exactly as I requested and a crème brulee, partner had the fish parmentier and an Irish coffee.) The first table we were given was exceptionally noisy (this is possibly the only real fault with this restaurant and perhaps is more to do with the hard floors and high ceilings which echo noise than anything else) and were immediately found another, quieter table. Nothing too much trouble, polite staff and good service. A thoroughly enjoyable pre-theatre meal and can't wait for my next visit.
The restaurant has a very pleasant, amenable atmosphere on entering, which is further enhanced by the friendly welcome given by the staff. Having pre booked ( a necessity due to its popularity) one is quickly shown to a table and quickly asked if drinks are required as one considers the extensive and varied menu . One can recommend the delicious walnut and chicken salad but no matter what one chooses, one will not be disappointed . starters , Main courses and puddings are all reasonably priced and all delicious. The resulting bill is always reasonable considering the exquisite tastings one has just experienced . All in all, well recommended !!
Evening at Cotes at Tunbridge Wells. Service was excellent as every member of staff was helping out to ensure we did not wait for anything. partner had allergy and the order was change to remove an ingredient the manager came in at this point to make sure of order was fully catered for and checked at order and service to ensure it was Correct . A very enjoyable evening and food was excellent with quality and portions we right. Our main waiter was new and was lovely personally and checked on us regularly. If he did know something he would ask his manager and come back swiftly.
