We came here before going to the Albert Hall. I'm coeliac so need GF food and all the waiters/waitresses were very knowledgable and all my food came with a little 'gluten free' flag; it really shows that Cote have the accreditation from Coeliac UK and take it seriously. Plus, the food was delicious. Only minor downsides- we were a little squeezed next to table behind us, and the waiter was a little over-pushy trying to persuade us to have an after dinner drink! But otherwise top-notch.

It was just a quick visit to this Cote restaurant after an evening performance at the Royal Albert Hall, but we enjoyed it as usual. The staff were all very nice and efficient, and the starters we ordered came very quickly together with a complimentary Kir Royale. The place was quiet and so my sister and I were able to catch up without any interruptions. I can definitely recommend this place.

The food is always superb and the service attentive and polite. As a disabled person on a restricted diet, I appreciate enormously that they will always help with slight adjustments to the menu. And the disabled toilet facilities are always scrupulously clean and completely accessible. I am always happy to return - it’s a firm favourite of mine - and many friends, to whom I have passed on its many attributes.
