“Good choice”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Found this restaurant on a visit to Oxford last weekend and would certainly return. Four of us had different dishes from the early evening menu. All dishes were excellent and we felt this menu was very good value for money. The staff were attentive and friendly. Altogether a pleasant experience. I would recommend this restaurant to friends visiting Oxford.

“Excellent Service, Excellent Value!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We had a wonderful meal at the Cote Brasserie on Saturday evening. Thankfully we booked a pre-show table (and we were glad that we did, as they were fully booked by the time we got there and turning away disappointed guests).

We were served by a very attentive waiter who was incredibly cheerful.

Our meals were superb! (Pork belly slow roasted and Medium Rib Eye steak cooked to perfection!).

Stunning meal, lovely venue, very attentive staff and lovely atmosphere! I will most definitely eat there again!

“A little gem”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

It was by chance that we found this restaurant when visiting Oxford.
The staff were welcoming and attentive. Food was very good as was the choice of wines and especially cider for my husband.
The service was outstanding. A very enjoyable experience.

“Enjoyable dinner”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Went on a date during the week and had an enjoyable evening.
Had booked a table and arrived on time, but waited around 5-10 mins to be seated as the table wasn't free. Not the best start to the evening but everything improved once we were seated.
Ordered the duck with some green beans and had creme brulee for dessert. All the food was excellent. Duck was cooked to perfection. Also enjoyed a nice glass of merlot.
Service was attentive. Considering how busy it was, was impressed with the time taken to check on us throughout the evening.
Very good value for money. With mains starting from around £13/14, was worth every penny. Have paid a lot more for an average meal in other places. Ambience was nice too. Perfect for a date night. Was busy but noise was not too loud for good conversation.
Had a great evening and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting excellent French cuisine in Oxford.
