Our inspiration for the food and design comes from a modern interpretation of the many famous bistros that populate Paris. There has been a resurgence of interest in simple bistro cooking in Paris as locals turn away from expensive and over complicated cooking in formal restaurants to return to the basics of French cuisine.

Our menu always offers classics dishes such as steak frites, moules marinieres, corn fed chicken from Languidic in the heart of rural Brittany, alongside lighter dishes such as pan roasted salmon with basil potato puree and a tomato and garlic dressing. Crème caramel and crème brulee are house specialities for dessert.

Open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Côte also offers regular changing seasonal specials. Our atmosphere is informal and friendly. Cote recently won the Good Food Guide award for “Best Value Restaurant in the UK for 2009”.

Slight lack of atmosphere when you walk into the place but this is improved by taking one of the tables further into the restaurant. Mushroom sauce with puff pastry starter was superb but the Steak Hache was too salty. Second visit and the Cote Du Boeuf was slightly tough. Not bad overall and will probably give the chef a third chance.


The Cote restaurant is fantastic and a welcome addition to the rosta of fine dining in
St Albans  - food excellent and great value for money, friendly service too!

My first trip to Cote in St Albans and was quite impressed but not massively. The menu was a tad on the light side, no more than 10 options, and the Grill only had one option which was chicken. I had the Moules to start, no more than 10 in the bowl. To follow was the Lamb Shank which was very nice, fell off the bone, perfect mash. The only thing that annoyed me was paying extra for sides, £2.95 for a handful of french beans is a bit much. We decided not to opt for dessert. The waiters were very attentive and great knowledge of the wine list. £140 for 4, 2 bottles of wine, 4 starters and 4 mains. I will no doubt go again.

Excellent restaurant - food is lovely, service very good, good value for money


Had a lovely lunch here- superb steak frites and chocolate pot to finish, sat outside on the comfortable shaded terrace, very good, and good value for money menu.

Dreadful. Most of the menu 'unavailable' - even at Saturday first sitting! Wine was sent back - awful  rancid. Service OK. Food dreadful - how can you muck up Mussels!!!



Have eaten lunch and dinner here several times and loved it! Refreshing change from all the Italian restaurants in the town


Had lunch on my own on a market day recently. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice and waiting staff polite and attentive. However, the lunch was quite disappointing. I had the grilled salmon followed by apple slice as part of the 2 course lunch offer @ £9.95. The salmon itself was nice, but there were barely any potatoes and vegetables hiding under the fish. Too good a helping of hollandaise sauce, would have preferred this on the side. The apple slice was clearly not prepared on the premises - had a very processed look and taste. What a shame.
