I have been to Cote often throughout the past 5 years and found it to be a great restaurant to have a reasonably priced luncheon with good service. on this visit I was not disappointed. As usual the food was good and the service impeccable. Worth a visit if you are in Guildford.

Was in town for the Saturday and here for 5ish, for pre Theatre dinner. Had the Charcuterie Board followed by Ribeye steak with Roquefort butter. Both were fresh, tasty, succulent and cooked to perfection, washed down with an excellent Chemin Du Marquiere Merlot. Those with me had Charcuterie board and Fillet with Peppercorn sauce, Calamari and Sirloin plus the Poulet... More

Visited this establishment on a midweek evening and found it almost full.Having been there before on a number of occasions and also to other branches of the chain in Salisbury,London (\wardour St ) and Chichester,it is always a pleasurable experience. We were served by the same french waiter throughout the evening who was both friendly and attentive.The food is always... More

We were looking for a late afternoon meal in a central Guildford location with good quality, good value food. The pre theatre dinner was the perfect solution: a good selection of dishes which pleased everyone in our party and the service never wavered as the restaurant filled up. Proving once again that Cote delivers time after time. Congratulations!

My wife and I arrived very hungry for dinner on a Saturday night and the place was almost full. In my opinion this was a good thing as the tables are far too close to each other and a bit on the small side. We were attended to very swiftly and ordered some drinks and pushed to have some olives... More

The food we had was simply stunning, absolutely loved it. I recommend the haddock! However the atmosphere inside is a little odd. We felt like we were always on the way (as our table was between the door and the reception desk). The staff were a bit brash, but I think it was due to it being a Friday night.... More

Pre Theatre Dinner. Friendly welcome and very efficient service. Interesting Menu so enjoyed a nice meal. Received a Free Wine Voucher to encourage future visits, which would be no problem.

We came here for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday morning, even though it was really busy, we still received a good table with great service. Nice atmosphere whilst we ate too. Had eggs benedict which was amazing and my partner had the cooked breakfast. Couldn't even finish our pots of tea as you got so much! Will definitely be back.

Loved the french onion soup. Toasted bread appetizer... pissaladiere reblochon... like a cheese and caramelized onion topping was ok, main course of steak frite was ok...was looking for great flavors and got a little bland. Can you get a flavorful medium rare steak in the UK??? I'm zero for four and afraid to try again. Great atmosphere and service. Lots... 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.
