Nice meal, as usual with all of the Cote branches we have tried. This would have been a maximum rating, but for one niggle. Much tempted by the October Specials we visited Winchester to learn that they had run out of the Chateaubriand, which we really fancied. We even booked for a very early lunch at 12 noon to guard against this! The same had happened in the Basingstoke branch two weeks ago, so doubly frustrating. If you publicise an offer you really should stock up those dishes which are expected to be popular. I had the T bone steak was quite good, and my daughter had the Fish Parmentier which was OK, but a bit on the small side she thought. As usual the service was good.
Always great food and great service! We love coming here.
A nice dinner, with good food and a pleasant atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive. Love the food choices but would prefer more gluten free options. Also, despite a good wine list, the spirits / cocktails choice was limited.
Not far at all from The Great Hall of Winchester and the Westgate Museum, Côte Brasserie offers an all-day dining arrangement that casual diners and fans of the French go crazy for. And we’re not surprised, because all you need to do to see that Côte Brasserie know exactly what they’re doing is step through the restaurant doors on High Street and embrace the genuinely warm welcome and aromas of the French kitchen drifting straight up your nose. The dedication to service at this city centre location is second to none, and the produce of the kitchen is of the same calibre it would be safe to expect from any independent restaurant out there.
As a champion of all-day dining, Côte Brasserie Winchester offers every meal of the day at astounding good value. So much so that you’ll leave every time not only with a warm glow in your stomach, but wallet that’s still heavy in your pocket. The a la carte menu in particular is made up of traditional French flavours as well as some slightly more region-specific, but highlights for us include the pan roasted pork belly with gratin potato, braised Savoy cabbage, apples, thyme and calvados jus, as well as the roasted duck breast, served pink with a creamy potato gratin.
