Exeter is an ancient and historic city with a very modern and creative feel to it, so it is no wonder that Côte Brasserie has become a local and visitor favourite. Inspired by the brasseries of Paris and the rich flavours and ingredients used in them, Côte Brasserie Exeter is a modern and charming restaurant located in the heart of this stunning city. Situated in the Cathedral Yard, Côte Brasserie has a beautiful upstairs dining area where you can look out onto the picturesque Cathedral Green, or choose to relax outside in their street dining area where you can watch the world go by as you enjoy decadent French cuisine. Booking ahead is recommended so you don’t miss out.
Exeter is undergoing a sort of foodie revolution, with food and wine festivals and increasingly diverse and international dining options, and French restaurant Côte Brasserie in the city centre is leading the way in establishing this vibrant city as the foodie capital of the South-West. Situated in Cathedral Yard overlooking Cathedral Green, the team at Côte Brasserie have created a stunning restaurant and an equally as stunning menu and wine list, to offer guests a truly special experience. The perfect spot to bring the family or go for a romantic date night, Côte Brasserie has expertly created a space to suit everyone.
With an all-day menu, Côte Brasserie is open from breakfast through until dinner. This Exeter favourite has an extensive list of options, and from the evening menu we recommend starting with the crab mayonnaise with avocado, cucumber, capers, and tarragon with toasted sourdough bread for a refreshing beginning to the evening, before a main of the incredible seasonal rump of lamb with Jersey Royal potatoes, English asparagus and mint Hollandaise. Located in the heart of the city centre, this French speciality does tend to fill up so it’s advisable to book in advance to avoid waiting.
