I think that this set menu is exceptionally good value especially for a restaurant in the city. The location of Côte Liverpool could not be more perfect, as it is right in the centre of Liverpool One meaning it is the perfect place to head to for lunch or dinner after a few hours of shopping. Not that I have ever been known to go shopping of course. Ahem!
They also serve breakfast, and they do an impressive formule option, of full English breakfast, juice and a hot drink for £ 9.95.
We were warmly welcomed by our server, who led us to a pleasant table by the window and even took the time to ask how my day had been so far. We were immediately brought a bottle of filtered table water, a nice touch and I truly appreciate when restaurants do this without you even having to ask. I also ordered a glass of Lagarde Blanc, an excellent white wine with green apple and citrus notes.
I was feeling hungry (as usual) so I opted for a main course and a dessert. Quelle surprise indeed! I went for the chargrilled chicken breast with garlic butter and frites. My partner went for the classic French bistro dish of steak frites; chargrilled thinly beaten minute-steak served with garlic butter and frites. Delicious! I have to admit, I wasn't expecting greatness for £9.95 but what a pleasant surprise I was in for. The food was served so quickly and the portions were more than generous. The fries were crispy and fresh and my chicken was cooked to perfection with the garlic butter adding a touch of decadence and rich flavour. Piles of fresh and lightly seasoned rocket dressed the plate and I was offered a choice of sauces. I can see why the Sunday Times has called this restaurant 'fantastic'.

My partner said the steak was excellent, and you can gather by now that he is something of a steak expert! It was perfectly cooked and generously proportioned with piles of crispy fries. We were both so happy with our meals, and we were delighted with the sheer quality of the dishes.
The desserts were both excellent, and having eaten Crème Caramel far too often when I lived in France, I can confirm this was an authentic one, with a deliciously rich caramel. My partner had the chocolate pot (which I sampled of course!) and the sharpness of the crème fraîche really complemented the rich hit of dark chocolate cream which lay beneath. These were stunning desserts which rounded off our meal to perfection. What a lovely evening!

So that is all from me for now, what do you all think, do you like the look of this restaurant or have you ever dined at Côte? There is a great choice of locations for this restaurant, so I would definitely recommend it for a lovely French style meal. Oh la la. Ok I will stop now! I can't wait to read your thoughts on this and thank you so much for reading this post!
Until next time,
