We’re very proud to announce that we have expanded and opened a brand-new Côte Brasserie at the Royal Festival Hall. Opening our doors on 10 March 2018, we welcome you to dine with us during your next visit to London’s iconic South Bank.

Situated along Festival Terrace amongst old railway arches which add stunning structural architecture to the décor, our Royal Festival Hall location is a slick eatery set across two floors. Relax and enjoy the classic Parisian-style surroundings and recognisable Côte design with beautiful baroque tiles, leather rivet chairs and marble tables. Fine glassware adds some uncompromising French bravura, pared back with an uncomplicated colour palette. Alongside the dining area is our open-plan bar, stacked up with French coffee, regional wine and the very best freshly baked bread.

Indulge in elegant French dining with a menu that’s sure to titillate your taste buds. Begin with an assortment of hors d'oeuvres or an extra-special Kir Royale. For your first course, sample our must-try classic French dishes, including warm Roquefort Salad, Prawn Gratinée and, of course, the quintessential French starter: French Onion Soup.

For your main, we are delighted to offer a selection of dishes from our à la carte menu. You’ll be hard-pressed to choose between fresh Moules Frites, creamy Spinach and Mushroom Crêpes or a traditional Beef Bourguignon, to name just a few, but whichever you go for, complement your choice with a glass (or bottle) from our extensive wine menu, brimming with a wide variety of provincial French wines to savour.

We also run a monthly specials menu, so be sure to drop in to taste this month’s limited-edition dishes.

Every member of our Côte Brasserie family is passionate about French dining and this comes across in the friendly, attentive and personable way they’ll look after you during your visit. Pop in today for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Al Fresco Dining

We’ve also got an outdoor dining area where you can watch the world go by (and catch a glimpse of the Thames) over a bottle of chilled wine. Sink into our comfortable outdoor seating and snuggle up under one of our blankets and shelter to enjoy al fresco dining on the South Bank, whatever the weather.

Things to Do at the Royal Festival Hall

As the cultural heart of London, the South Bank is a bustling hub of activity. Whether you’re in London for dinner or a show or just staying in the city, the South Bank is a vibrant and atmospheric place to visit.

As well as taking in fantastic views of the Thames, you can expect to hear music from a plethora of street artists: from jazz to contemporary, there is always a talented performer lining London’s South Bank. The South Bank Centre is also renowned for hosting a diverse programme of events, so be sure to pay it a visit before you leave.

Finally, enjoy a long stroll along the river bank pre- or post-meal for a sightseeing experience to remember.

Where to Find Us

Find us along Festival Terrace, between the Southbank Centre and the Royal Festival Hall and just a few minutes’ walk from Waterloo Station.
