Côte Brasserie, Cirencester

Côte Brasserie, Cirencester

Inspired by a modern take on the classic Parisian brasserie, Côte provides a relaxing, yet chic, environment in which to dine.

On the menu you will find authentic French favourites such as tuna Niçoise, steak-frites or half chargrilled poulet Breton and starters such as chicken liver parfait, Roquefort and endive salad or French onion soup.

The specials menu changes monthly so that there is always something new to try and it’s based on what’s in season. The weekday lunch and early evening menu also changes monthly and is planned around market prices. It can include delicious items such as pork rillettes with sourdough toast, followed by fantastic fresh hake and finished with Côte’s speciality crème caramel.

Breakfasts at Côte are special too, including eggs Benedict with homemade velvety-thick Hollandaise and a fantastic vegetarian breakfast. The French toast with maple syrup and fruit salad makes for a great brunch and of course there are always fresh pastries on offer.

With friendly and welcoming service and a varied but reasonably priced French wine list, Côte is a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
