We ate here for an early evening meal with our daughter just before Christmas, and were very happy (as always). The waiters are always very nice to her, which she loves and we find the food to be very good. There is a reasonable selection of wine, and we find the atmosphere to be friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

I went here as a celebratory meal with my mom and her friend. We had a 50% off voucher and decided to treat ourselves to a garlic bread sharing board (very tasty, although my only complaint is that there needs to be way more garlic butter/sauce on the side!) which was well presented. I ordered a sirloin steak medium rare... More

Not very good value for money. The food is ok, just. The fish and chips looked grey, but the Beetroot and Goats cheese tart was very good. The Boeuf Bourginion was delicious but tiny. Desserts were also overpriced. It was only ok and if we hadn't had a voucher code we would have been even less happy.

Food was very basic and service was pretty poor. We didn't get much attention from our waiter - was pretty disappointed.

Visited for breakfast with my daughter, waitress was helpful in informing me what was available for children. Full English was a good size, coffee tasted nice and atmosphere was relaxed. Our waitress gave my daughter a balloon as we were leaving which made her day. I will definitely be visiting again.

After my last experience here (see previous review) I wasn't coming back but decided it was ok (and convenient) a lunch. I had the quiche with frites. I was a bit surprised as the portion was small. It was just a slice of quiche, rather than a small quiche that you used to get at Café Rouge, so for the... More

When one family member suggested Christmas dinner at Cafe Rouge I was a little bit perplexed! However, after looking at the five course menu at £50 per person I thought why not, saves on the washing up!!! The youngest of our group was four and the eldest well.....older. From the moment we stepped through the door we were welcomed. There... More

Although this is part of a chain the feel is of an authentic french brasserie . The food is really very good at equally good prices. The service was efficient and slick as well as attentive without being " in your face " the whole mealtime . We will certainly be back and strongly recommend it.
