Great Breakfast

Found table outside as very busy on beautiful sunny day. Waitress very welcoming and gave us a bit longer to decide on choices. Coffees arrived quickly and not long after eggs bacon and toast. Waitress offered pepper and sauces. All very hot and delicious. Would definitely visit again.

Rude, inattentive serving staff, left after 20/25 minutes and still not managing to get my order taken, unsure what the 2 serving staff were actually doing except trying to avoid any type of contact with the customers.

5 of us visited this restaurant this evening. What a disappointment! We sat at table for 10 mins waiting for menus then eventually after asking for the menus they turn up! Ordered drinks-these took 20 minutes to arrive! When they did arrive, they had forgotten the latte! The restaurant was not busy! Starters / bread basket & kids meal arrives.... More

You could be snooty about the place, but i believe its value, most courses cost the same as a good burger and chips. Waitress very helpful very polite. Seems like new management improved recently..

barely welcomed to the restaurant and then offered squashed table outside or table inside (at back of empty restaurant). Drinks and Food order taken promptly and staff all friendly enough. Bit of a delay (which upset the kids) between main meal and desert order being taken / served. Then a huge delay between being given the bill and someone coming... More

I went there today with a group of friends. I paid about £10 for a smoked trout salad as a main course. When I eventually got it, I asked if it was a main course as the portion size looked so small. I was informed it was a main course. I was in a rush so I ate it (stupid... More

Not a good visit. Have been to Café Rouge a few times, normally in a family group and this occasion was no different. There were 8 of us, 6 adults and 2 children. Booked a table for 2pm, all good so far. Our waitress was very professional through out the visit, I want to make that very clear. So, we... More

We thought we would give this restaurant a try and were pleasantly surprised, the waiter service was exceptional, the food was good and very hot. The fish was not cooked through and the waiter with no questioning took it away and brought another steaming hot and cooked, for which the restaurant did not charge. We were very impressed by the...
