    Having asked for a quiet table, we were sat in the front room with a wonderful view of the cathedral. Nice ambiance and no thumping Muzak - well done Cote! I think the menu has been cut down but nevertheless we had enough choice for dinner with a good choice of wines too. Efficient and friendly staff made for a good evening out. Well done everyone.

    Well, our first disappointing visit - and we have been a lot of times! One meal was only lukewarm, the starters never materialised and the other meal was very average. Hopefully this was a one-off, we will soon find out, we are bound to go again in the next 10 days.

    Great steak cooked as it should. Nice taste. Nice busy vibe. Good bread, baguette and much better choice of cheeses this time. Sad to see one of the Breton Chicken options go but it’ll come back and the one on the menu is great too. Steady option and never disappointed. 😊

    Food is consistently good at Côte in Exeter and we were afforded a lovely window table looking out over the Cathedral. For some reason service was slow and the food not quite up to normal standard. This will not stop us returning again very soon.

    Had a really nice meal with good service. Great views of the cathedral. The steak was cooked perfectly and all the courses were really enjoyable. If I'm going to be really picky, the croutons were a bit too dry, so you couldn't stab them with a fork (see, really picky!). Will definitely visit again.
