    Amazing garlic bread and tasty beef burgers. Was my boyfriend and I’s anniversary meal and they went to the effort of putting a happy anniversary banner on the table for us. Good service, and delicious wine and beer. Would highly recommend

    We have eaten there many times and had both good food and good service. I took my family there for a pre theatre meal and service was very slow to the point we had to ask for our main courses twice and when they arrived we had to polish them off very quickly. The waiter asked if it was ok for my tuna to be pink and arrived it was tough and over cooked. I sent this back and due to the timing issues there was insufficient time to re order or fix. We also had a very angry man sitting near my teens and he has continuously rude to his wife. It was quite upsetting for the girls, this was not the fault of the restaurant staff but they could have spoken to them or asked them to leave. All in all a rushed and unsatisfactory evening. Sorry Cotes I will not be back for a while.

    The steak tasted like the grill hadn’t been cleaned in months. The kids portions were for children of no older than 3 years old. Poor value and very much lost its way from Cote of old. Quel domage.

    We were a party of three and we all ordered the same meal - Poulet Grille and Clafoutis Plum on the Fixed Price menu. The chicken was very thin & a bit dry, was not sure if it had been sitting waiting but definitely not freshly cooked. The sauce however was delicious. The dessert of course was terrific. The restaurant is lovely, service was good and it was quiet on a Tuesday lunchtime.

    Atmosphere was fine. The food was OK, no more. Very small portions, however very expensive. FISH PARMENTIER had a microscopic portion of fish, no salmon and plenty of potatoes. The fillet steak was tiny and raw inside although I ordered Medium-Well done. The onion soup was good. The tomato salad was merely a sliced tomato. No imagination, no vision. Only very expensive and very standard food. Disappointment.

    A social group event. 10 people on a Tuesday evening to take advantage of the fixed price deal. Normally a way to try the venue without spending a fortune. Very slow service despite the restaurant being quiet and enough staff. They were very professional and polite but very slow. Was there over 2 1/2 hours. Card only and their computer/till system made it more difficult to split the bill. Unable to pay for drinks as we ordered. I wouldn’t organise another social event here. Other venues are more flexible and accommodating

At Bournemouth seaside I’ve gone for muscles they weren’t fresh I’ve got a big stomach problem. Sent a complaint not responding yet. Service was good recommend me a sophisticated choice of wine.

    A really enjoyable evening, beautiful food, set menu for new year, fillet steak cooked to perfection, cheese board for one to finish was lush. The atmosphere was pleasant, a little breezy when the main door opened and would recommend you ask to be seated upstairs where possible. Staff were really friendly, pleasant, chatty and welcoming. An overall memorable experience with a meal I keep thinking about, would absolutely return without question.

    We had such a lovely evening our server was very attentive and friendly...all our requests were answered. Great atmosphere...the place was clean and social distance was kept between tables. We had a lovely table by the bar and window. Lovely evening food was great so was the Champagne...although dint appreciate the service charge as there was only two of us and we would have tipped anyway.
