“Robust French flavours, cheery continental vibes and brilliant value for money”
– Good Food GuideWinchester is as elegant and historical a British city as you could wish to find, so it’s fitting that Côte Brasserie has set up shop here. Be assured that French food lovers in the heart of the city and indeed on the outskirts are very glad they did, too, as this little restaurant is busy and buzzing every day of the week. Here you’ll find authentic French dishes prepared with knowledge and passion, served in a dining space on High Street that’s spacious, light and perfect for relaxing. Whether you’re visiting Côte for the first time or for the tenth, you’ll be made to feel special.
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.

I had an enjoyable lunch with two friends. The fish parmentier was delicious and the service was excellent. The standard remains consistent in the restaurant.
We eat at Cote regularly and went this time for my mums 80th birthday. The restaurant were very kind and let us park right outside and seated us close by so we could keep an eye out for traffic wardens. The waiter ( sorry I don’t know his name but he is Hungarian) was so kind with my mum. The food was tasty as always and very good value for money. Thanks again, you made us feel very special.
My friend and I really enjoyed our lunch at La Cote. The cauliflower soup was delicious and the sea bass and pork well cooked. The service was excellent and all the staff friendly and helpful . Well done and thank you
