Côte Brasserie Liverpool Visit: January 2017
Bonjour, fancy a French foodie fling? Well no need to book train tickets, pack your suitcase or grab your passport, as Côte bistro delivers authentic French Flavours in the heart of Liverpool city centre. Chic, cute comfortable entrance that had an inviting outdoor seating terrace that oozed a friendly family atmosphere balanced with a cool cafe culture vibe. This theme also continued into the main restaurant. Damian, the fabulous lovely manager, warmly welcomed us and settled us in our superb seating. Anna one of the servers pleasantly made her introductions and so began our fantastic French Feast. The Crab Mayonnaise served with avocado, cucumber, capers, and tarragon with toasted sourdough bread was lovely. The Chicken Liver Parfait with toasted brioche and spiced apple chutney was perfectly presented and tasted just as good as it looked.
