Living Like The French…in Glasgow | Côte Brasserie, Review

11th August 2018Sophie

Côte Brasserie takes inspiration for both its food and interior from many bistros in Paris. From Moules Marinières, Roast Duck Breast, Steak Frites and of course Steak Tartare, it’s not hard to see why French food is popular no matter where you go.

Between my obsession with the French food, their language and their capital, it’s safe to say I’m practically French now.

Sticking well and truly to the French theme, I opted for the Charcuterie Board which included jambon de savoie, smocked duck breast, saucisson sec and duck rillette served with baby gem salad and chargrilled pain de Champagne.

Next up for me was the Breton Fish Stew whist the table ordered the steak fillet, sirloin steak and duck breast. The fillet (being the most expensive) was the most flavoursome out of the two, however both were cooked well. The fish dish was divine and the sauce was nicely soaked up by the bread, included as part of the meal. I did however think the price was a little much for the dish. A few more squid pieces or clams would have done it for me, or even a bigger piece of Sea Bass given the price.

After having our starter and mains, yes…we went for dessert!

The Praline Crêpe was “decent” (and yes that’s a direct quote) whilst the Tarte Fine Aux Pommes and Chocolate Mousse were both lovely. I really enjoyed my Frozen Berries with White Chocolate sauce. My dish was smaller than expected but nevertheless, I throughly enjoyed my evening at Côte.

When booking, there was an offer that every adult at the table could order a complimentary Gin & Tonic…so naturally, we did! Upon seeing our bill we noticed we had been charged for them, so if you receive the complimentary G&T’s, be sure you’re not charged!

With both a friendly welcoming and departure, great service and French food, safe to say I’ll be back again!

So what’s the score?

Food & Drink: 5/5

Atmosphere: 5/5

Menu variety: 5/5

Value for money: 4/5

Service: 5/5

Overall: 24/25

      There’s a lot of vegetarian and gluten free options! Not 100% sure about vegan but I’m sure they would do at some point! X
