We were staying in the Holiday Inn and this is just a five minute walk from there. We arrived just as they were opening (7:00) and were offered the 'last table', which we thought was quite funny there was no one else in there. We started with a glass of Kir, which came with croutons and tapenade. Being as we were in France we had to have escargot, this was a real surprise (yes we've had escargot many times before) they were beautifully served in a light tempura batter, absolutely delicious, and if you're a bit squeamish about escargot this would be a great way to try them. I had sea bream for my main this was served with a pasteisse sauce which worked well. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her moules. To finish we had some local cheese. All washed down with a bottle of Cote du Rhone. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and speak good English! By the time we were leaving the restaurant was full and buzzing with locals queuing for tables. Definitely worth booking for a Friday or Saturday night. Our meal came to €68.30, which we thought was good value.

When staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Bougival,whose restaurant is to be honest average, a short walk to the Cote Seine restaurant, gave us a culinary experience which was a pleasant surprise. A good freshly cooked menu.On ordering our main course, Madame la Patronne pointed out that if we wanted either of two of the dessert choices the Chef would need to start preparing them now. We chose the Saumon mi-cuit and the chicken with dauphinoise potatoes, Both were excellent. For dessert the good old standby, creme brulee and the specially cooked banana crumble were accompanied by good house wine and followed by coffee. The charming young man who served us could not have been more attentive. Being fluent French speaking ,ordering was no trouble. Others in the restaurant, who were non French speaking had no problems in ordering and had as good service as did we.
The restaurant is small (about 20 covers)and it is possible to book.
Highly recommended.

We dined twice at this lovely little restaurant during a recent stay at the Holiday Inn Bougival for the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe. Fortunately we had read reviews on Bougival restaurants in advance, and easily found the Cote Seine just a few minutes walk from the hotel. The young serving staff were charming and welcoming, and the meals were excellent - we had beef on both nights. Prices, including a bottle of wine and liqueurs, were very reasonable for the quality of food and service. Had the restaurant been open on the Sunday evening, we would certainly have eaten there again. Most enjoyable and highly recommended.

We visited this restaurant after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. It was a short walk from the Holiday Inn and we prebooked on a Saturday evening which was good as every table was taken by 8.30pm. The restaurant is very attractive and we were greeted by a charming waitress who offered us an English language menu. There is a relatively small choice which is good as it usually means that the food will be fresh and well prepared. Likewise the wine list was relatively short but obviously carefull chosen as all the choices looked good - and there is the option of house wines which were popular. We had afabulous salmon slad to start which was huge and so shared it between us! The steak I had was among the best I have ever eaten with home-made fries which were delicious. It is clearly known for its steak as the majority of tables seemed to be having this. My wife had pork which she enjoyed. We only had room for ice cream for dessert. The service was excellent - courteous, unhurried and helpful. The cost was very good for the amount of food and quality plus a very good bottle of wine - 64 Euros. Overall a really good experience and one of the best meals we have ever had in France.

I dined here twice during my stay a few days ago and could not have been more happy with the service and quality of food! A great, simple menu with quality ingredients cooked as they should be! Staff were very friendly and accomodating! Would definitely return if I'm back in Bougival! Cannot recommend highly enough! I went both with friends and my wife and have to say it is suitable for both friends and couples as well as small groups!
