    We were there for a pre-theatre meal, the service was fast, food was good. the only issue is the crepe was cold (expect a warm crepe). The restaurant became very busy from 1800, hence we have waited quite some time for a bill.

    Enjoyable meal with guests. We were from Suffolk and enjoyed the location. We were earlier, and even though the restaurant was packed, they were able to find us a table. Excellent service very friendly and knew their menu. We will be going to the Bury restaurant just because of the excellent service we received at the Cardiff Bay location.

    We always enjoy our visits to Cote Brasserie but sadly this was not a great one. My first choice of main course was not available. The calamari had a lot of burnt greasy "bits" on the plate, the fish stew which used to be amazing was less so, more liquid & less fish with two thin pieces of baguette on the side. The biggest let down was the truffle chips, not only did they initially send out the wrong chips, so they were delayed, but they were dreadful, so dreadful we had to return them & the cost removed from the final bill. This is not the usual standard we expect from Cote - let's hope it was just an off day!

    We went early on a Wednesday evening before attending a performance at the Wales Millennium Centre. We explained that we would need to eat quite quickly; even though they were very busy, service was prompt and efficient and we left in good time. The food is French bistro style, and was well executed and tasty. Overall, this was a good experience, and we will certainly return.

    The starter had little similarly to the menu description. Our main course arrived one hour and 20 minutes after our arrival resulting in us hurriedly eating to make the theatre for 2pm. My triple cooked chips were raw. All around us people were complaining of under cooked chicken and poor service. Diners on the table next to us had been in the restaurant since 12.00 and only had their starters, when our mains arrived before theirs, they paid and left. Appalling service and mediocre food

    I have eaten at this restaurant numerous times before but on Saturday the Service was really poor. I think the restaurant had booked too many people in at the same time and couldn’t cope . My son & I had our starters which were fine, except my son’s was missing bread. After 1.30 hours we left as there was no sign of our main course arriving & we were going to the Theatre. I felt sorry for the staff but no one even came over to say there was a delay.

    Poor service and food quality was also substandard compared to prices charged - overall an expensive but disappointing evening

    Cote is always reliable and caters well for non meat eaters. Our waitress was particularly good and well deserved the service charge which she asked if we were happy to pay.
