Have been to Cafe Rouge at Brighton Marina a few times, but not recently - so were looking forward to a reasonable meal and good service. Arrived around 6.50 on a Saturday evening, to find the restaurant mostly empty - where almost every other restaurant in the marina appeared busy. Seated immediately - with our choice of tables. Went towards... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food as I hadn't really been expecting that much but as a group of 5 we all had 3 courses and everything was really good. The waitress was prompt, polite and friendly though it was a very quiet Sunday evening so she didn't have many other people to look after.

We have enjoyed many family occasions at this restaurant but this time was our first disappointment. It was crowded (but also has been in the past as it is a popular place) and it was difficult to get to our table with a buggy and get through the tables to the toilets. And being very busy, we had to wait... More

Ok so have eaten at many a branch of these rather ubiquitous 'bistros' and always felt they were a notch above the usual chain type places. Let's start with the good points yeah? The food was tasty...like in a big mac kind of way. The end . I had to ask our waiter to return one plate ( chicken baguette... More

We like the Cafe Rouge, we go quite often to the one in the centre of Brighton. Two years ago we had a delightful Christmas Lunch and it was for this very reason that we decided to go for our Christmas Lunch to the one at the Marina. We booked some time back with confidence and looked forward to a... More

Having been to this restaurant previously, I was looking forward to having Christmas Dinner there. Oh what a disappointment! The place was packed, and this establishment was clearly unable to cope with the bookings that they had taken. All around our table for four, people were complaining and refusing to pay. The table for four next to us just walked... More

Although part of a restaurant chain, the service felt personal and the food of a high standard with reasonable prices. We all had a very good evening and, unlike other chains, didn't feel as though we were being rushed to finish and leave.

We went here last Sunday before going to see a show at the Brighton Centre and had a lovely meal. It was not very busy and our waitress was very pleasant and the food was excellent, we ended up having a very relaxed meal over nearly 2 hours. First time at a Cafe Rouge and definitely won't be the last.

Nipped in here for a coffee whilst briefly visiting Brighton. The hubby had a brunch which was superb. I opted for a coffee which was good. The staff were polite, the atmosphere lovely & toilets immaculate. Lush views over the marina too.
