It's plain and simple inside. The waiters are helpful and attentive with a sense of humour (so rarely found these days!). But the food is the best bit. The menu is extensive but not cramped. It is split into fish, grills and steaks - all at reasonable prices. For those looking for less of a hearty meal, there is also a range of salads and lighter bites.
It seems a shame to me to eat a salad in a French restaurant. And so for that reason, I've always had the steak! I heartily recommend the steak frites, which come with your choice of sauce. I also recommend visiting at the weekend when the price dips to a bargainiferous £9.99.
The wine list is extensive and French as one would expect. Prices range from £14 - 70 so there's something to suit all budgets.
The service was excellent. Not too obtrusive but still attentive. The staff saw I was cleaning my glass of wine round the rim and came over and replaced not only my glass but also the bottle of wine.
So altogether a delicious meal, good price and excellent service. Will definitely return for another meal.
Actually, going for breakfast on Saturday as they have a 50% offer on until 9th August.
I have a feeling that Cote might be owned by the same team as Strada, which presumably explains why the guy at Strada suggested it to us, but it was a good evening and the restaurant is recommended. I shall report back on the £20 lobster and chips another time.
