Description: 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.

“A Little Slow”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Popped in for a coffee and one round of toast as we didn't have much time. Greeted nicely and sat in the back room, the place was quite busy.

We asked for 2 cappuccinos and a round of white toast. The coffee arrived in due course but was extremely small compared to other top end establishments. The waiter then informed us that the toast would take a while as they "only had a small toaster" ! We drank our coffees and were about to ask for the bill as we'd given up on the toast when it arrived. The toast was brown not white and the butter was unsalted.

This place is nice but it needs to sort out very simple issues.

Will be back though to try again as we don;t like to use the bigger High St chains !

“Very nice meal, attentive service”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

It must be very depressing for other restaurants in the area to be virtually empty whilst this place is rammed.

Very nice meal, attentive staff who are knowledgeable

Only possible complaint would be the tables are a little crammed in in places and it can get quite noisy.

“A good place to eat in Guildford”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

One Sunday afternoon - found ourselves in Guildford - time for Lunch - discovered the Cote Brasserie, I would certainly recommend it. Food was of good quality and although not cheap was around the sort of price you would expect for an establishment at this end of the market. The staff were particularly friendly and pleasant with out being intrusive. We (me, wife and (adult) daughter) really enjoyed our meal there.

“Fabulous food and service was superb”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Celebrated my sons engagement with a fabulous meal. My husband and I had the rump of lamb and I can honestly say it was the best lamb I have ever had. The rest of our group all had steak and they also said that it was cooked to perfection. Medium rare was cooked perfectly. Would recommend fully
