A successful restaurant at a busy Heathrow Terminal means a fast service without the customer feeling rushed and in a relaxed atmosphere with an attentive staff. My experience, and believe me, I have had many in departure halls, Cafe Rouge ticked all the boxes. The quality of the food was first class and made me want to linger awhile in... More

Food was very good but when I asked for the bill it took her to bring it 10 minutes even there were only a few customers there and her attitude was quite aggressive

I was struck immediately by the attentiveness, courtesy and efficiency of the staff. It really was special. I spent a relaxing 2 hours here over lunch on 16th Oct with two work colleagues and we couldn't have been better looked after. Cafe Rouge generally has a limited choice menu but it is always very very good in my experience -... More

We met family here on a stopover waiting for a connecting flight and we were very pleased with our experience. We have two very young children and were delighted that they had high chairs for both. They also gave the kids coloring pencils and paper which kept them amused while we waited for our food. The menu is as others... More

This was a good place to relax before a flight. The service was good. However, we did find the menu a little limited. The olives were a good way to start. They bring your bill after your main, before they ask you if you want dessert. They said this was to help people in a hurry. Not sure about this... More

The atmosphere in the café is welcoming and so is the friendly service. The menu offers a nice variety of good food, both, vegetarian and meet courses. The waiter was friendly and the service was efficient - just what is needed before departure to catch a plane. I will definitely go back!

We just stumbled into this restaurant, Thanx to our cab driver who dropped us at the wrong terminal. All not lost, we sat to eat at the Cafe Rouge. The food oooolala, your typical french cuisine. They were quick, and the food was fresh and tasted just like a home cooked meal. Awesome. Thanx to our cab driver.

A chance choice but was well worth it,service was quick polite,tables gave you a decent amount of elbow room and menu simple but tempting,recommend the French toast although the French£7.95 breakfast a good choice as well,good spot for people watching and was impressed with the girl wearing her onesy and packing her spare clothes into it and not her suitcase...

Stopped here after a busy week in London. Staff were very friendly. Nice menu and food was good although I would avoid a rare Bavette as it is quite tough. Restaurant is quite spacious and quiet. You don't really feel you are in a busy airport
