About Côte Brasserie - Windsor
A type of French restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals.
No Côte Brasserie restaurant or location is bad looking, but Côte Brasserie in Windsor is nothing short of beautiful. Set next to Windsor Bridge you’ll find no spot more relaxing or more tranquil to enjoy fantastic French food. What’s more, as is the way at Côte Brasserie, the food is of astounding value which, quite clearly, makes for a win-win dining experience. Ingredients are fresh and prepared with love, this, coupled with Côte’s dedication to service make a trip to this historic Eton location a must. This restaurant gets very busy so we recommend making a reservation.

Meander west along the River Thames for long enough and you’ll drift past the quaint and extremely pretty Côte Brasserie in Windsor. Should boating seem a little old school, however, then feel free to take the train as this French restaurant on High Street is a short bridge crossing away from Windsor & Eton Riverside train station. It’s also close to plenty of parks, scenic spots and, of course, Windsor Castle, meaning any trip out to Eton can be made even more splendid with the addition of an affordable French meal from Côte Brasserie.
Côte champions all-day dining meaning you can stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner and regardless of time, you can expect traditional French favourites as well as dishes that are slightly more region-specific. We are particular fans of the weekday lunch and early evening menu that offers two courses for £10.95 or three courses for £12.95 – nowhere else in Eton, Windsor or even the UK will you French food of such quality for such a fair price. A few of many highlights from the a la carte include a warm beetroot salad, risotto vert, roast duck breast served pink with a creamy potato gratin, as well as classic steak frites.

Excellent pre theatre meal and service. Keeps to good standards and is in a great location. It is important to reserve particularly at peak times.
Excellent set menu - food very good as was the service. Pre theatre meal so a glass of Kir Royale was included. Lovely location by the Thames in Windsor
I was very happy to be seated with a good view of the River - and that the Staff accommodated our third diner easily (despite the fact that we had booked for three). I do like Cote and their three course menu - I will be booking to visit again really soon.
Our first visit to Cote, Windsor, but we have visited other branches before. Excellent food, friendly and professional staff and a complimentary Kir Royale as we had tickets for the local theatre!
This has to be one of the best appointed restaurants in the area, with views directly across the Thames to Windsor Castle. I have lost count of the occasions we have celebrated family events here - or just gone out for a quiet meal for two - and the quality of the food is exceptional. Our favourite as a starter is the Calamari; main courses with fish are always good value; with sweet, it has to be tarte aux pommes or crumble version with vanilla ice-cream. And with a bottle of Muscadet between us, the evening is just perfect. The atmosphere is always good wherever you are sitting. The attention by staff is always friendly and helpful. You will enjoy yourself immensely at Cote Windsor - probably the best sited of their great value restaurants.
We were a group of 15 and had already sent our pre-order through to the restaurant 2 days prior. When we arrived the table was only set for 12/13 which was a bit awkward. The waiting staff offered bread and olives, but only to one end of the table? The bread arrived, but the olives did not arrive until after the starters? The Pissaladiere with Reblochon was not very nice and my colleague could not eat it at all. As the waiter was serving the dishes he did not even seem to know which dish it was, and who it was for despite having their names on the list. He also served a white wine spritzer asked for lemonade as White wine and lemon ?! He also asked to remove plates even when others were still eating. As this was a group business booking I did feel let down as the staff seemed very inexperienced and it looked bad on me for selecting this restaurant. Unfortunately I would not return as a large group.
The food and drink was very nice and I was happy with the amount of time it took to come. However when we received the starters to share for two. We had to wait for somebody to come nearby and ask for two mini plates for our starters. I believe that good customer service is that we should be given two plates without waiting around to find someone to ask for two plates and we should of been given them before. As our starters were getting cold and it also wasn't very busy in that area of the restaurant. Overall the service provided from our waitress on the night was good, she was very friendly and it is most likely that I will visit Cote Brassiere again for a meal.
Great food and good value. Only downside for our party of 4 (all aged 60+), 2 of us walk with sticks and there was no indication on the website of 4 steep steps up to restaurant entrance...we then baulked when about to be shown to our table down a spiral staircase. Waited an extra 15 mins in a seated 'holding area' for a table upstairs. Would be useful to show on the website that the restaurant would be totally inaccessible to wheelchair users, and for the less mobile to be given the option of requesting an upstairs' table. We were unfortunate to have an extremely noisy group of middle-aged men (probably 'the worse for wear') who were later seated beside us...we couldn't wait to leave.
Easy to book a table online. We chose a five o'clock slot. Friendly and pleasant staff from welcome to ordering and service. Helpful regarding food allergies. One or two options were off the menu but as the menu is wide and varied this wasn't a problem. We were all pleased with our meals. Tasty, hot and attractively served with the exception of the 'special' pavlova. Served in a glass rather than a dish or plate and included a jam like substance that we didn't feel added anything to the dish. Minimal waiting time to be seated and served. Would recommend and will revisit ourselves.
The location, decor and quality of food never cease to delight, but on this special occasion- my birthday- it was the efficiency of the service that really impressed. The staff were aware of the special booking, and I had a lovely table overlooking the river: my Kir Royals were delivered immediately with compliments. We fell so pampered. It is plainly obvious that the Company belong to "Investors in people"- Service is impeccable, flawless, and professional each time I visit. The food is truly good French fare- and I am French- and the value sensational. Cote is the best restaurant in Windsor
Made a reservation and requested a river view table, however the table that was allocated for us was given to the couple who arrived just before us, a matter of seconds before. We were actually taken to the table but made a sharp turn when he saw it taken by the previous couple. Anyway, the waitress at our table was very Polite and friendly who managed to turn the whole situation around. without knowing what happened. Food was Good, had calamari starter which was PERFECTLY cooked and the Sirloin steak for main which was a bit fatty but cooked to the way I wanted it. I would have rated it a 6 but that mishap seating us lost the extra point.
We were 4 persons visiting Cote. We experienced that the meal our guests had was really dry (cod in bacon) and seemed to have had been too long time in the oven. Me and my wife got the Tuna Nicoise, and also here the tunas was well done. We mentioned the tunas to the waitress and she immediately informed us we would get a new tuna and it would be rare as announced in the menu card. After 20 minutes of waiting we asked the waitress about status of our replacement tuna. She mentioned it was forgotten and at the same time she made an immediate decision to take both the Tunas of the bill. That was a bold and right decision, which somehow mitigated the overall view we had of this dinner. We got our replacement Tunas and they were prepared as expected and were really good. So in total the only good thing about the experience was the ambience and the waitress, and for the first time we did not experience a well prepared dinner, as we have got all the other times we have visited you.
My mum and I came for dinner at 6.30 on Tuesday 22nd August. The lady that served us our meal was lovely, very friendly and attentive. I meant to ask her name to inform her manager how great her waitressing was so glad I've had the opportunity to leave a review. We had a starter main and dessert each, all of which were delicious. We never waited too long for the food or the bill but equally felt that we weren't being rushed. The venue was beautiful also. I will definitely come back again.
I visit Cote regularly in Windsor and apart from one experience with a difficult waitress on 17th July (table booked under the name of Gainher for 3 people) I always enjoy the food and the experience. We are always miffed by the fact that we regularly ask for window tables and the answer is always the same - they are already booked and yet we can never book one!!! The other criticism is that we never see the same staff - there seems to be new faces every time we go so we never get a nice welcome from a member of staff we know. Otherwise we are happy with our visits.
Excellent choice of menu. As usual the staff were very attentive and pleasant. The restaurant was very busy but this did not affect the superb meal the four of us had. The pace between the courses was perfect. A nice touch was the complimentary drinks we were given prior to us ordering the drinks and food . We took two friends who had never eaten at Cote' before and they were also full of praise for the choice and quality of food, together with the excellent service and river views.
Yesterday, my husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Cote Brasserie - Windsor for our Wedding Anniversary. When reserving a table, I had requested to sit outside or beside the window with a view. It was a beautiful summer's day, all windows were open and our table was right beside a window (with a balcony) with a lovely view overlooking Eaton Bridge, River Thames and Windsor Castle. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were pleasantly surprised by the overall cost - definitely good value for money. Service was also very good - relaxed but attentive. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you Cote Brasserie.
We were on the eve of moving house and wanted a relaxed venue, overlooking the River Thames in Windsor. It was a great evening, excellent food from the new September menu, old favourites in the desserts, an excellent starter and a chicken dish that was filling and flavoursome. It was relaxing, just what we needed on the eve of one of the most stressful house moves to date. All rounded of with a coffee and first class friendly service.Many thanks Cotes, we will see you again.
It is always a lovely experience at Cote Windsor- the welcome is extremely friendly, this time we had pre- booked and we were taken to our table without delay. Staff were very pleasant( a suggestion- staff should remember to speak a little more slowly, we did find we were suffering from lack of comprehension and we are Scottish, how do our foreign friends fare!!) Food- second to none. Lovely to have superb river views,much appreciated. Would definitely recommend and we look forward to our next visit!
Have just enjoyed a lovely lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday. From the moment of entering Cotes in Windsor we were made very welcome. We had the set three course menu, which was delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter Hicham was very attentive to our needs and had great customer skills, very polite, very courteous and very attentive. Our meals were piping hot and delicious. We go regularly to this restaurant and always have good service and great food. Thank you for a memorable time.
We had a fantastic evening with delicious food and exceptional service from Andy and his team. It was our daughter's 14th Birthday and we were greeted with 3 glasses of fizz ( one non alcoholic) followed up with amazing steak/ frites and finished with a chocolate cake dessert including a candle and Happy Birthday singing to make it a memorable dinner. Absolutely fantastic! Thank you Andy and the rest of the Cote Team. We will be back soon!! The Galvin Family :-)
