As always the service was excellent and the staff efficient and friendly. But on this occasion I was very disappointed by the small portion of smoked haddock and spinach. They might have added potatoes but as it was if I hadn't ordered a side order of chips I would still have been hungry. I did mention my disappointment to the... More

Two years after my last review of Cote Brasserie, I arranged a lunch before Christmas for a family party of six. Despite being packed and despite being somewhat cramped (this is a very old building!) the atmosphere, service and - most importantly - the food were absolutely first class. Very happy to see that standards have been maintained so well... More

A buzzing place to eat and always consistently good or even excellent. Good quality food at reasonable prices, great staff and a convivial atmosphere makes this one of the best restaurants in Guildford.

This place never fails to please. I think that any place of worth should serve a good house win and great coffee and this place does both plus an affordable and very nice glass of champagne. I like individual restaurants but I know that I will get good food and service here at a reasonable price - arrive before 7pm... More

Cote Brasserie breakfast is one of the nicest around. It's very popular so need to book if going at the weekend. Recommend the 'Formule' at £9.95 that includes any cooked breakfast with fresh orange or cloudy apple juice and a hot drink.

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.
