Staying in Richmond prior to our Holiday flights. Having visited Cote in January and found it to be a nice atmosphere with a good choice on the menu, we thought we would get an update. We were not dissapointed. Full house, nice meals, we both...More

Cote in Richmond is always full (so quite noisy) with a good atmosphere. The food is ok - it's now feeling very mass produced rather than authentic French. Enjoyable evening.

It has all the pluses of Cote except for the atmosphere and service. On more than one occasion staff not exactly friendly. Food good but with not a great welcoming feel.

Live locally and have visited many many times... most recent visit was a disappointment particularly front of house... erratic and disorganised. Seems like the Ive Cafe has rattled this previous gem.

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.
