About Côte Brasserie - Windsor
A type of French restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals.
No Côte Brasserie restaurant or location is bad looking, but Côte Brasserie in Windsor is nothing short of beautiful. Set next to Windsor Bridge you’ll find no spot more relaxing or more tranquil to enjoy fantastic French food. What’s more, as is the way at Côte Brasserie, the food is of astounding value which, quite clearly, makes for a win-win dining experience. Ingredients are fresh and prepared with love, this, coupled with Côte’s dedication to service make a trip to this historic Eton location a must. This restaurant gets very busy so we recommend making a reservation.

Meander west along the River Thames for long enough and you’ll drift past the quaint and extremely pretty Côte Brasserie in Windsor. Should boating seem a little old school, however, then feel free to take the train as this French restaurant on High Street is a short bridge crossing away from Windsor & Eton Riverside train station. It’s also close to plenty of parks, scenic spots and, of course, Windsor Castle, meaning any trip out to Eton can be made even more splendid with the addition of an affordable French meal from Côte Brasserie.
Côte champions all-day dining meaning you can stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner and regardless of time, you can expect traditional French favourites as well as dishes that are slightly more region-specific. We are particular fans of the weekday lunch and early evening menu that offers two courses for £10.95 or three courses for £12.95 – nowhere else in Eton, Windsor or even the UK will you French food of such quality for such a fair price. A few of many highlights from the a la carte include a warm beetroot salad, risotto vert, roast duck breast served pink with a creamy potato gratin, as well as classic steak frites.
Went out for a family dinner. Service was excellent. Food tasty and fresh. The 5 of us were seated in the bay window near the entrance and it offered us lovely views of the bridge and river. Planning on back soon. Can recommend.
Lovely food, super service and it was wonderful not to be rushed - made a birthday lunch very special! Thank you, we shall look forward to coming again!
I have been on a number of occasions and never had a bad experience. The restaurant is in a beautiful location, making the evening even better. Service is great and the quality of the food is tremendous. I would always recommend Cote Windsor to everyone. I loved it.
We were a group of six for lunch and were all happy with our food (including well cooked steaks) and excellent service (sadly don't know the lady's name).
This has to be one of the best appointed restaurants in the area, with views directly across the Thames to Windsor Castle. I have lost count of the occasions we have celebrated family events here - or just gone out for a quiet meal for two - and the quality of the food is exceptional. Our favourite as a starter is the Calamari; main courses with fish are always good value; with sweet, it has to be tarte aux pommes or crumble version with vanilla ice-cream. And with a bottle of Muscadet between us, the evening is just perfect. The atmosphere is always good wherever you are sitting. The attention by staff is always friendly and helpful. You will enjoy yourself immensely at Cote Windsor - probably the best sited of their great value restaurants.
Made a reservation and requested a river view table, however the table that was allocated for us was given to the couple who arrived just before us, a matter of seconds before. We were actually taken to the table but made a sharp turn when he saw it taken by the previous couple. Anyway, the waitress at our table was very Polite and friendly who managed to turn the whole situation around. without knowing what happened. Food was Good, had calamari starter which was PERFECTLY cooked and the Sirloin steak for main which was a bit fatty but cooked to the way I wanted it. I would have rated it a 6 but that mishap seating us lost the extra point.
We had a fantastic birthday meal for my sister's 30th birthday. The staff were lovely & presented us with complimentary Kir Royales on arrival to mark the occasions. (When I accidentally knocked one over they even replaced it without question). The team also let us arrive early to decorate the table, and brought out a birthday cake which I provided. A really special occasion we will remember for a long time. The food was also delicious, and we will definitely be returning.
It was a difficult day for the staff due to a very busy Mothers Day. People were not willing to vacate their tables. Staff had to put us on a temporary table outdoors and gave us complimentary drinks. We were eventually shown our table (40 minutes later). The staff acted in a very correct manner. Despite the long delay we were delighted with our meal and most of all the polite staff and how they dealt with the problem.
Good menu for breakfast . The "formule" deal of cooked breakfast , fruit juice and tea or coffee all for under £10 is great value . Cote food is consistently good . The windsor branch has great views . If you sit at the front near the river you are behind the bar area and it isn't always easy to catch the eye of the waiter /waitress to get the bill but that's a minor thing. Have always found the staff here to be excellent. They are all friendly and polite . Recommended
I thought the service was very slow. We sat upstairs in the room that over looks the river and it was extremely noisy. Originally my girlfriend and I were sat at 90 degrees to each other which meant I was sitting facing another couple who were right next to us, a little off putting for them I'm sure so I moved to sit face to face. I have been to a Cote before and was very impressed so we had been looking forward to this occasion very much. I could just of been because it was busy but I've been to busy restaurants and service shouldn't be an issue. Very disappointed to be honest. It appeared to me quieter towards the front and downstairs so if your out for a quiet meal sit there instead of the large room at the rear.
I had pre-booked a table. When we arrived we were promptly seen to our table, however after 15 minutes no one had come to see us or take a drinks order. I had to get up and find someone and ask them to take our order. They did not seem to know that my reservation came with 2 x complimentary kir royals. The person that saw to us apologised and offered us a free bottle of champagne Instead but we said we preferred the kir royals and so we were given a bottle of champagne to bring home. Thereafter the service was faultless and food delicious.
We visited Cote in Windsor today for their Mothers' Day Champagne Breakfast and it was absolutely lovely. We had a nice table with a view of the river. We both had the full English breakfast. I had mine with scrambled eggs and they were perfectly cooked - soft and moist, just the way I like them. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. Can't wait to go back.
Back to its best! We had a very nice meal, all 3 courses, with very friendly service. Have been disappointed a couple of times but the standard was right back to the first few months Cote opened in Eton. The only slight complaint was the number of attempts it took to book on-line - it seemed as though the problem was with entering a contact number!
It was our 37th anniversary and we asked for a window seat overlooking the river and that is exactly what we got PLUS two complementary glasses of rose champagne! Wonderful start. The food was extremely good, served and presented very well and the staff could not have been more attentive. We will definitely be going back and highly recommend it to anyone. Well done Cotes.
Cote Windsor is in a fantastic location overlooking the Thames and Windsor castle, and we ate outside by the waters edge for lunch. The French Onion soup was great and my partner had the Moules, also very good. My partner had the Half roast chicken which was good but I had the Roast Duck breast which unfortunately was very chewy, so spoiled it really. No time for desserts as service was quite slow on this occasion but they were busy as the sun was out and tourists were a plenty!
My wife and I have been going to Cote in Windsor for many years, for breakfast, lunch and pre theatre meals. Always excellent food, friendly and efficient service plus stunning evening views of the river and castle. I also entertain clients on odd occasions as I can be confident that the menu will always have something of appeal. :-)
My wife and I have been a customer of Cote Windsor since its inception and have enjoyed many good meals and drinks. Cote is always consistent with its offering of food and drink, the staff are very attentive and friendly and there is usually a good ambience. All in all Cote Windsor is a good place to go.
Had dinner there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. When the waiter heard us wishing her many happy returns he immediately disappeared and came back with a complementary Kir Royale for all of us. A very nice touch. The food was as goos as ever and the staff friendly and helpful. Cote has become my go-to restaurant in Windsor.
Always like going to Cote. Primarily it's the location. But also the food is usually interesting and good value. The staff are always friendly and efficient which also counts for a lot. I like the way there are several different levels/areas so that the experience can be different with each visit. [And it beats the food/service at Brown's which is probably its nearest similar competitor!]
Service charge of 12.5% is excessive, especially on large bills. It should be 10%. Having said that the service was very good . Menu is starting to feel a little restrictive and tired. Could do with a bit more choice. I really don't like your final ratings categories. They do not represent an accurate gradation. e.g Noise. I hate eating in a silent restaurant.
We appreciate that the restaurant was a bit busy, expertly so, given it was Mothering Sunday. But there wasn't enough staff. One poor guy st the door who was also showing guests to their tables, so inevitably a queue formed to get in, come on guys. We waited a full 10 mins to be offered drinks and a menu. Same wait for our starters to be cleared. Saying that, the food was excellent and the waiting staff, polite.
We cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The Fish Pie is to die for and the service is great, with particular mention of Kareem. Thank you for giving us the table we asked for, excellent selection of wine and wonderful menu. I love this place and will come for many many more lunches.
Service was good, But the seating was not as expected, rather awkward as I had to sit on a sofa seat and my friend sat on a chair that stuck out a bit into the aisle. We had asked for a table seat as it was a special occasion to celebrate my birthday. It also got a bit confusing, we arrived early and then I got a message to say the booking was cancelled!!
I really enjoyed my meal. I especially liked it because the staff were very nice and helpful. One more thing I have to say if your book online you will get loyalty points and when you have quite a few you get a 10 pound or more. :-)
Have been to Cote a few times but this visit fell short of expectations. After being seated there was a 20 minute wait to order drinks. Our seating was a little to close to another couple as we had to share a sofa. Staff were friendly. It will not put me off from visiting again but will definitely be looking for a more speedy service and a better seating plan next time.
We were welcomed well and seated quickly on a very busy Saturday night. Starters were so so - the beetroot salad tasted too much of vinegar, which is surprising as the beetroot is apparently fresh. Steaks were good. Service was excellent. But it was all a bit rushed and I feel they concentrate too much on fast turnover when they are busy. nevertheless we will return but not on a Saturday evening.
Another pleasant meal with good service. We eat regularly at Côte restaurants and the food is always good but the wine list is the only weakness, Offering only unremarkable French wines with no other counties listed. We enjoy our wines and it is a real shame that Côte's list does not match the quality of the food.
Went with two friends for lunch, one of the ladies had a birthday, so unknown to us we had a complimentary glass of pink fizz each, with was a lovely surprise. Food was gooood value for the price and ambience of Restaurant was lovely. Will be back.
Table not ready when we arrived last night. Stood in reception area for 20 minutes with lots of other people waiting too. Shown to our table but waited 20 minutes before anyone came to our table to take our order. Steak was very dry. Disappointing and not the first time we had to wait for our table. The restaurant need to address the reason tables are not ready on time not keep offering free drinks thinking it makes it okay. We will probably stop going if it happens again.
A very nice welcome from the staff.Food excellent and a lovely view of the river.Booking is important if you want to enjoy your meal.Finished with a lovely dessert.Would recommend the restaurant to any family or friends who want to have a relaxing meal
Fab food, fab staff, fab location, a truly memorable time overlooking the River Thanes with a magnificent view of Windsor castle. I have been to cote restaurants in Birmingham, Brighton, Sloane Square an Windsor. The standard across the board is first class.
We booked a table to celebrate a birthday, from the minute we arrive we received excellent service. The food was delicious and we were seated by the window over looking the river. Thank you to the staff for making it so enjoyable.
Great location (Windsor), waiters/waitress friendly and helpful but seemed bit short staffed as we had to grab someone and ask for everything. Food tasty (Cote chicken salad always a fav., other dishes we had tonight were fine), would like to see kids dessert option as £5 for dessert makes it virtually as expensive as their main. 1 scoop ice cream would be fine.
The restaurant is in an excellent location on the Thames at Windsor. The food as with all Cote restaurants is excellent. My only comment regarding this restaurant would be that there are plenty of staff but only a few that are waiting staff and they seem rushed off their feet.
The food was lovely as always, I have the duck all the time and it's always superb. Service was nice, not too overbearing, and the lighting was almost perfect. Always good at Côte Windsor, though wouldn't mind sitting next to the window for a view of the river one day!
Great location, friendly efficient staff and wonderful food. Our five yards old was treated like a grown up, we watched the ducks and boats gliding past in front of the castle and even the black pudding was home made. Perfect brunch.
Friendly and helpful staff, very good food, and a good view of the river Thames. We asked a week earlier for a table with a view of the river and we were very pleased that this was possible. I would strongly recommend a visit to Cote Brasserie in Windsor.
Cote is set right on the bridge that crosses from Eton to Windsor . Its a lovely venue, great staff and the most amazing breakfasts each time we visit . A favourite! with my social group, colleges and friends .
Food was first class - the only thing I would say let the evening down was the quickness of the service. Starters arrived literally seconds after the waiter took the order, main course pretty much arrived as soon as the plates were cleared. One hour for the experience.
The service was excellent and the drinks reasonably priced. The choice of food was very good and all most of us were very happy. One of the main meals was very dry, as though it had been under heat lamps for too long. Generally a good meal out.
Great service, lovely food and stunning location. Set right next to the river Thames this restaurant serves food which is excellent value for money. The breakfast menu is delicious and the lunch and evening menus are broad and cater for all tastes. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Quick friendly service. Great views of the river, and lots of menu options, such a plates rapides or full menu and specials for whatever the occasion. The food was cooked well and arrived quickly, definitely good value for money.
Another wonderful meal at our favourite Cotes in Windsor. We love going there before the theatre or for breakfast on a Saturday morning, especially if the sun is shining on the Thames and the swans are out in force.p
Very good experience. Nice place with good view and intelligence service. Manu quality is excellent as usual. We love it. I like fish soup and dessert from March special menu. I will advice this place to my friends
Very busy today,but service very good,and food excellent,we said compliments to the chef. Location of Cote in Windsor it perfect for a lovely view over the river,pity today it was raining. Would recommend this Cote...the Kir Royal is a great start to a perfect meal.
Great service in a perfect setting. Stunning views of the River Thames and Windsor Castle and a very diverse and balanced menu. All the staff were courteous on arrival and maintained a jovial and professional attitude throughout.
Food is exactly as you'd expect from this type of restaurant. Service is great and very friendly and the setting is excellent! Thanks for a fun evening, good times had by all in our party of 6
Everything was very good...staff was helpful and polite and didn't feel rushed. We chose food off the small menu and it was served hot and there was a lovely ambience to the downstairs conservatory overlooking the river.
As always a great experience at Cote Windsor. The set lunch menu for March was very varied and I was spoilt for choice! The customer service is of a standard found in a top London hotel.
The restaurant is base in an incredible location, by the river with amazing views. Great place to have lunch to complement your visit around Windsor. Food very good quality and variety. We'll visit this place again in our next visit to Windsor.
