Not overly fussy, always delicious.

COTE is inspired by the brasseries of Paris. Its style is relaxed all-day dining, serving dishes made from great quality fresh ingredients; not overly fussy but always delicious.

Provenance of food is important to Cote and its commitment to serving authentic French brasserie dishes, freshly cooked to order means that they work with ingredients of the highest quality. Cote source cheeses such as the Reblochon used to top its pissaladieres, the Roquefort on the cheeseboard and the Comte found melted into the French onion soup from the world-famous Rungis food market in Paris. Likewise, it picks up the meats for the charcuterie board starter here too. Another much-loved French classic, you'll find Breton chicken on the menu; corn-fed and reared in Brittany.

As well as provenance, Cote takes seasonality seriously too and you will find such delights as lobster and English asparagus on the specials when the season allows. The fortnightly-changing weekday lunch and early evening menu provides outstanding value at PS9.95 for two courses and PS11.90 for three.

Just as the French are famous for their desserts, Cote is renowned for its creme caramel, made daily to perfection. For some theatre, the Crepe Grand Marnier is one to order, arriving at the table alight with flames. Finally there are dessert wines to match, should that take your fancy.

When it comes to breakfast, there's not much the menu leaves you wanting for. Classic eggs Benedict made with free-range eggs, ham and rich homemade Hollandaise is one of the most popular choices among guests. Other favourites include French breakfast with artisanal Boudin Noir or, for something lighter try the granola with yoghurt and berry compote.

Cote really does champion brasserie dining at its very best.
