Cote: High St Kensington; eating an M&S food advert

We were in the mood for a cheap meal out last night so we went off to Cote on High St Ken. It is a not as busy as the Soho one and their is a more touristy vibe but it is perfectly pleasant. I had the roast chicken which was pretty good and my wife had a very nice fillet steak. My provencale sauce was very good indeed. We shared a bottle of nice robust red and we followed the mains with a very good creme caramel. The bill came to £70 with service which I thought was quite expensive but that was probably down to the steak. Service was variable our waitress was very good but some of the other staff were a bit disinterested.

I do like Cote but I sometimes feel I am eating in a Marks and Spencers simply food advert, it all looks very nice but lacks a bit of style and substance.
