More about Côte Bath, Bath

A short stroll from Bath’s spectacular Roman and thermal baths, lies the charming Côte Brasserie. French specialists, the team at this Milsom Place locale have created a dining experience that is reminiscent of French bistros in Paris. Offering all-day dining and a menu that ensures only high quality and seasonal ingredients are sourced and used, Côte Brasserie Bath is the perfect place to relax and indulge after spending the day exploring all this historic city has to offer. The wonderful team at Côte Brasserie pride themselves on being committed to serving only the best, while remaining affordable and accessible.

We recommend starting with the chicken liver pate with toasted brioche and spiced apple chutney, and then for the main event sampling their famous poulet Breton chicken reared in the heart of rural Brittany in the west of France, served with frites and choice of sauce – we recommend the provençale sauce, a blend of cherry tomato, basil, garlic, caramelised onions and black olives.

Be sure to book in advance because this très magnifique brasserie is fast becoming the go-to restaurant for relaxed, yet elegant dining.

Beautiful sunny day in Bath and the lunchtime service was as always spot on. With three menus there’s lot of choice for food as well as some good wines. My daughter and I had two courses and the presentation and flavours were really good. The food was also piping hot. A very enjoyable lunchtime with great service, can’t wait to go back again.

It was a lovely day sunny and bright. We wanted to sit at a window seat, however we were told they were all taken, we were given the nearest seat and it worked out well. the food was really tasty, and plenty of it. the waitress that served us was fab, she was from Bristol and was covering Bath for a few days. Would recommend and defiantly go again. Good value for money. Well done

Lovely situation - upstairs outside in the sunshine - and excellent food. I like the set menu for a reasonable price idea - we are used in France to having no choice for a fixed menu - if the price came down slightly I would be very happy if you did that, but having choice is good. Excellent lunch - thank you.

Booked on line and claimed free bottle of Sauvignon Blanc on joining the Rewards Scheme - this was all easy and worked well. One had Moules and Frites and the other Pork from the a la carte menu followed by a shared dessert. All delicious and helped by cheery and helpful staff. Cotes Brasserie continues to be a favourite for pre-Theatre dinner.

The food was good and reasonably priced. Service was a little slow; they really could have done with another person waiting on the tables. You also have to factor in the 'voluntary' tip which runs to one eighth of the bill - so adding on another £6 or so to a £50 menu/drinks price. It also surprises me that for a restaurant serving French cuisine they do not automatically put bread on the table.

Great atmosphere at Côte Bath. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food and drink are excellent quality. The evening menu is also very good value for families.

I have visited Cote in other towns I think this is the best branch l have been to - good location , well set out , very pleasant and helpful staff Not exactly a criticism, more a comment ; we were upstairs , l think that ( on a busy Friday night ) l would have found the noise a little overwhelming downstairs ( and l don’t have a hearing problem)

As usual we were impressed with the high level of service at Cote. Naomi made sure that my meal was served with the dressing on the side as requested. Our food was delivered as requested - promptly but not too quickly after our wine was delivered. We find it difficult to find any flaws in their excellent set menu.

If you want a well cooked meal in a pleasant atmosphere without breaking the bank then Cote Brasserie is definitely the place. I travel around the UK a fair bit and if I'm on my own in a strange city I will always seek out a branch of Cote. The quality for a chain is remarkably good in fact I don't think I've ever had a bad experience. Thoroughly recommend.

As ever, excellent food and service from Cote. This restaurant has never let us down. There are choices of whether to sit inside or out, weather permitting, in a quiet area without car traffic fumes and noise. Can't fault it, it's our most regular place to eat out in Bath - where there is a lot of competition!
