    Upstairs with no atmosphere and poor service as just one server. Had to move empty glasses, ask to order more drinks, chase the server for our bill etc. By the time we had our food the upstairs was empty so no atmosphere which made our family Christmas evening out flat. Shame as food is so good.

    We were welcomed, seated, served with friendly efficiency, and all our dishes were up to Côte’s usual high standard, with a good wine list. The only disappointment was that the Vegan starter was not available for whatever reason, which limited one person’s choices.

    Had lunch for 4 people today. The service was very good but the food was absolutely awful for all 4 of our party. For starters the garlic bread was incredibly dry and the board it was served on smelt of fish. My husband and I both had the Mushroom & Camembert tart. Both arrived with the poached eggs that were so over poached they were all scrambled. The tart was undercooked and almost inedible. The courgette salad which accompanied it was very old with bits of the rocket that were black in colour. One of the party had the crispy duck salad which again the rocket was old and again just thrown together. We visit the Cote in Cirencester often as do our whole family and feel extremely let down by our visit to the Cardiff establishment. The Server did however take money off the bill and at the time did ask if we wanted an alternative. We all felt very let down by our experience as it was a gathering with an old friend and my elderly Mum.

    This was a celebratory meal. Very very busy during graduation week. Had run out of many dishes including nibbles which suggested the restaurant did not plan well enough for the number of people who would be in Cardiff at the time, nor accounted for the number of bookings it had taken. My meal consisted of wilted watercress with steak which was actually very nice.

    We used this restaurant because it was near our hotel and have been to a Cote Brasserie in Salisbury and thoroughly enjoyed it. We can only say that we found everything to be to our liking and will certainly be back for a treat in the evening before going to the theatre as on this occasion. The staff were very helpful and polite too.
