We always enjoy our visits to Cote. Today was no exception. Despite the restaurant being busy we had prompt service and excellent meals - cod goujons and Cote burger followed by creme caramel. The recommended wine for July was also good.

There was a free table so we sat. After 15 minutes waiting I went to the counter to order and the waiter refused to take my order as they were too busy. And we were sitting at a free table... never happened before!
