Winner | Best Value Restaurant in the UK
... all the elegance, informality and buzz of a classic Parisian bistro”
– Good Food GuideAs one of two Côte Brasserie restaurants in Cardiff, this one on Mill Lane in the very centre of the city is doing its bit for French cuisine in Wales. And with a menu made up of both regional French specialities and traditional classics, let’s just say we’ll be very surprised if Wales doesn’t see a whole lot more of Côte Brasserie soon. There’s a reason – actually many reasons – why Côte is so well-loved up and down the UK, and that’s because it gets the simple aspects of restauranting bang on. In turn, this produces service and plates of food that make you smile.
Côte Brasserie in Cardiff Central is where people of the Welsh capital can enjoy continental tastes and plenty of French flair. It’s excellently located on Mill Lane – right amongst the shops, not far from a host of museums and the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena, not to mention Cardiff Central train station – making it a flawless choice for casual dining whatever time of day. It’s difficult to overstate the sense of satisfaction that dining at Côte will induce as typically French decor and hospitality pave the way for a menu laced with fresh ingredients and plenty of creativity.
Among a breakfast menu, a weekday lunch and an early evening menu, the a la carte options comprise a strong showing from classic French dishes prepared with passion. Chicken liver parfait? Check. Charcuterie boards? Check. Saucisson sec? Check. And all that is before you’ve even got to the mains. If a light fill is all you’re after, we’d recommend the spinach and mushroom crepes or the salmon fishcakes. Should you desire French food more substantial, try a classic beef bourguignon or pan-roasted haddock fillet wrapped in French bacon. Côte Brasserie at Cardiff Central is an essential part of a day spent in the heart of the capital. Reserve a table now!
