Restaurant Review - Cote, Sloane Square, London
Restaurant name: Cote
Location: Sloane Square, London
Description: French bistro-style chain offering breakfast, lunch and dinner
Reason for visit: My choir was performing around the corner at Cadogan Hall, so I had dinner here beforehand with my boyfriend and his mum, who had come to see the concert.
I ate: cod goujons: breadcrumbed slices of cod fillet with frites and tartare sauce, £10.95, followed by tarte fine aux pommes: fine layered apple tart with vanilla ice cream, £5.45.
My companions ate: goats cheese salad: warm goats' cheese and roasted vegetable salad with black olive tapendade crostini £9.50; 10oz rib-eye steak and frites, £14.95. For dessert my boyfriend had the dark chocolate mousse, £4.50; I can't remember what his mum had.
The food was: My meal was basically a posh version of fishfingers and chips but was very nice. The only complaint was from my boyfriend's mum whose salad was served in a relatively small deep bowl, which she said made it hard to eat. My dessert was lovely.
The atmosphere/service was: Good- we didn't have much time before the concert and service was prompt and friendly
Price range/value for money: I would say pretty good; this is a mid-range restaurant though from looking at the menu the starters seemed a bit expensive - many were around £7.
Would I recommend it? Yes, I've also been to the Chiswick branch and like this restaurant chain.
