For great food, excellent wine, fair prices, and good service, look no further than Le Côte. For just 30 Euros a person, you can get a half bottle of wine, a starter, main, dessert, and a coffee. Start off with the homemade foie gras, which is remarkable, and then go for the scallops or the pork cheek in a mushroom and wine sauce.
