Relaxed atmosphere and Darina`s excellent service and knowledge about the meals is the reason why I like to go to Cafe Rouge in Chelmsford. Being vegetarian make it hard to get good food everywhere, in Cafe Rouge had never experienced that it`s not possible to swap bits to keep me happy and my belly filled up. Darina approach to customers is brilliant, very friendly with good humor.

Before I start I must say our waitress was pleasant and friendly and was clearly embarrassed by the food she had to serve us. The actual restaurant feels very dated, grubby and just lacking atmosphere. Regretted choosing here as soon as we arrived but it wasn’t busy and everyone was starving so we just went with it.

We returned the stone cold, burnt and flavourless omelette, left all of the sone cold beef burger (just ate the fries). The chicken burger was dripping in grease and was far from fresh so 3 bad out of 4 meals.

The waitress was helpful and removed the 2 uneaten meals from our bill but we didn’t stick around for deserts as we were desperate to leave.

Maybe not all CR are the same but seems this place has had its day.

In no rush, but main course and pud were s-l-o-w to arrive, though all served piping hot by helpful staff, particularly the lovely Darina, keen to ease the wait with some gentle joshing and good humour. A pleasant interlude in central location and good menu.
