We stopped in for lunch after a morning walking in the park. We luckily came early - it gets very busy! There seemed to be a lot of ladies meeting for lunch. The set-up may be a bit "standardised bistro", but very pleasant to find that in a UK high street! The food is very good and excellent value. Great... More

Shopping - tired. aching feet & poor weather - what is needed? The tried & tested "Shopping Assistant" Gin & Tonic (revives all areas) - visited a busy & bustling Cote Bistro & after explaining our plight - were warmly welcomed. Delicious Bread & Olives & perfectly served G & T's - we were ready to 'hit-the-road' again. Not the... More

Was staying locally in Richmond for one evening, and felt like venturing into the town, rather than being stuck in a hotel restaurant. Previously spent some time on Google researching the local eating venues and came across a French-style bistro in Hill St, Richmond, Côte Bistro, which appeared to satisfy my palate admirably. Decided before I left for London that... More

We took our 80 yr old aunt for her birthday lunch yesterday, the food was lovely, but what made it so special was the great service we had from our lovely waiter. He gave her a cake, he and his colleagues sang happy birthday (which none of us were expecting) and he waived the cost of her special birthday drink!... More

I booked a table here for 8pm & when I arrived it wasn't ready, however the manager was brilliant. He apologised profusely which wasn't a problem. These things quite often can't be helped & the restaurant was heaving. He kindly brought me & my friend a complimentary drink whilst we waited. It didn't seem that long at all before we... More

Busy Bistro, nice ambiance, food good. Service a bit slow, probably because it was busy, was not a problem, was having great conversation with wonderful friends.

The waiter came over didn't make eye contact or say hello, mumbled "were we ready" so we ordered after a while and watching our starters being show to every table it finally came with " is this yours". We were on a small table now filled with drinks and our starters when they came with our mains, they didn't ask... More

We went for dinner with a friend who is a local and a regular at Cote. We enjoyed it immensely. It was fairly late on a Friday evening. We had no trouble getting a table for three. We had a very good meal with good service. Our three meal choices were lamb stew, veal with spinach and potatoes dauphinois, veal... More

Went on a Saturday night as totally forgot to book somewhere else. First impressions were not great as it was packed and took a while to get seated. We ended up on the first floor which was fine until you needed to start the expedition to the toilet. Anyway what changed our perception was the waiter who came across as... More

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.
