Reasons for trip

I love Cote Brassiere and when All Bar One let us down, we were ambling aimlessly around the Trafalgar Square area and came across “Cote”: on St Martin’s Lane. Advertising a two-course lunch for £12.95 in central London, it was no surprise the restaurant was busy, but we were found a table straight away and offered water from their iconic stoppered brown bottles.

Being from Yorkshire, I had no hesitation choosing from the £12.95 lunch and pre-theatre “menu,”: which offered a good selection of starters and mains for both meat lovers and vegetarians alike. There was also a prestige set menu which offered slightly more choice and the a la carte.

My chicken liver parfait arrived in a small Kilner jar with clarified butter on top, a dish of cornichons and sufficient thinly sliced sour dough toasted bread. My guest decided to go a la carte with the crab mayonnaise at £8.50, which again came with sliced sour dough toast, but this time is was thicker.

As I was on a healthy eating campaign, I opted for cous cous with large chunks of coloured peppers, courgettes, aubergines, piquant harissa, black olives and yoghurt and mint dressing. My friend chose the fish Parmentier which was £12.95, which I’d had before in Cote Winchester. It looked good and tasted good but remained half finished as it was ‘larger than expected’.

A bottle of house white was reasonably priced at £16.95.

As well as liking the prices at Cote, I also like the service. The staff are always immaculate, professional and very friendly. You can’t go wrong with a Cote.
