We have brought visiting friends and families over the years to this Guildford branch of Cote Bistro and people have always mentioned how super the food is. Through the many visits over the years, we have probably gone through the entire menu and all of the dishes are consistently cooked to a high quality. Staff are always polite, attentive, sprinkled...

I went with a large group to the Yvonne Arneau theatre and we had lunch prior to going to the theatre. The restaurant was very busy and we were elbow to elbow. This was soon forgotten as the waiting staff were very good and amusing. The food was more than acceptable for a chain restaurant. I had the asparagus in... More

Third time at Cote Woking. Not disappointed. This time I feel they excelled themselves. Everything was well presented, good portions, and tasty. I had duck breast which was pink and loads of it. My husband had the three course early evening deal as did both our friends. They had chicken and my husband had the cous cous as the main... More

This place is never disappointing, always great delicious food, friendly staff and cosy modern decor. Cote Guildford is my favourite one together with the one in Woking. Also a very good place for parties or meetings. Highly recommend and I can't wait for my next visit!!

Always reliable Great food and service. Although this is a chain of restaurants I'm always impressed that they pull off the feel of an individual restaurant

A girlfriend and I booked a table before going to the theatre. We ate well, the food was delicious but the evening was marred by the service ... one of the waiting staff was pleasant, but the rest were distant, cold and not engaging. Having said that, the price was good value for the 3 courses we enjoyed!

Visit for lunch today. Booked on line and the booking was not recognized. Very good food but the sevice was not as good as we would have liked. Lovely fish stew and creme caramel, duck with cherry, Apple tart plaice, creme bruele and haddock. With pancakes. Portions were very good. Worth the walk up the hill through the castle grounds.

We were lucky enough to win a £50 voucher for Cote so decided to have a relaxing Saturday lunch with the little ones. Can't fault the service and the kids are really well catered for. Grown up food was nice and well presented, complimented by a great bottle of Viognier Will definitely return

Our inspiration for the food and design of Cote is a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros of Paris. Inspired by new trends, we are dedicated to serving authentic classic brasserie dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices. On the menu, guests will always find brasserie favourites on our a la carte menu such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn-fed chicken from rural Brittany and tuna Nicoise, for dessert, Cote's creme caramel and creme brulee are much-loved house specialities.
Seasonality and Cote's commitment to sourcing high-quality ingredients results in a monthly changing specials menu, ensuring there is always something new to delight regular guests and gastronomes alike, as well as the excellent value set menu. Open early every day for breakfast, through to lunch and dinner; Cote's atmosphere is informal and friendly.
