My wife and I ate out at the cafe rouge in Brighton Marina after one of their online offers caught our attention. The staff were unfriendly, didn't greet us very warmly, didn't ask us anything about the food, and generally gave us the impression we were an inconvenience just by being there and ordering. Even though the food was good... More

Usual Café Rouge food in a good location at the marina. There's so much room here - and normally people want to eat outside or at the front of the restaurant you do feel that they're ramming as many tables in as possible. Given that on our visit most people were outside and the table inside were practically deserted it... More

we have been going to cafe rouge at many venues in UK for years but on our last 3 visits with family to the one at the Marina, we were all appalled by the lack of service and the food was also most disappointing. In our view the manager and the staff should be changed to return this branch to... More

We chose this restaurant on a Saturday night because it wasn't packed. Often that's not a good sign but we each enjoyed our meals and the price was very reasonable with good service. What more could you want? Nice views out to the marina and parking nearby.

No Drinks, just a Starter each and a Main Meal . . . Burger and second main Trout Fillet which came to £37.75 which I consider to be expensive! Burger bun was over toasted (shattered when attempting to cut) the other Trout meal was luke-warm! Waiter/waitress were very good. Our last three visits have not been good so a fourth... More

Tough to find a good restaurant with fair pricing in the "New Marina" - it's a new area (the huge marina was built 30 years or so ago). If you want fish and chips, this marina area is right up your street! The waiter (certainly no "British Charm!) - was not a happy guy to say the least - although,... More

We usually go to this place and enjoy the views of the marina and we sit outside in the sun and watch people walking by...and relax! On average this place is average and sometimes even above average - depending on how busy they are. In certain days, they can be late with table service, but at least once they acknowledged... More

Regularly breakfast here, never crowded, delightful view of marina and special being able to walk along towards Rottingdean (we never get that far!) below the cliffs, afterwards. Service has always been efficient, if a bit slow sometimes, but quality of food excellent and the ambience, with a French music, sea air etc is wonderful. Plenty of offers available via Cafe... More

The usual high standards offered from Cafe Rouge and staff maintained the good experience we expect from this chain. However, having visited Cafe Rouges very often, the menu could do with broadening and some specials offered. Views over the marina are always a bonus Use Tesco vouchers to get best value

Service was slow but that didn't matter as the weather was amazing so sat looking at the boats with a bottle of wine whilst the food was being prepared. When it arrived the food was lovely and worth waiting for.
