This Cafe Rouge has the benefit of excellent staff...... great staff, great fun, great service. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners, I have done all here and not found fault, it is also a good place to sit, drink and watch the world pass by on the Water Front.

They were a bit stretched with a near full house on Saturday night, but coped fairly well. Food largely good, big sized starters. Four of us had escargot taster pots, undeniably. the worst I've ever had, they were cold and watery instead of hot and buttery. As a fairly frequent visitor I'm finding the menu a bit restrictive, and they... More

We had a steak with fries (19 pounds), Duck (14 pounds), Beef Bourguignon (14 pounds), a house salad (3 pounds). A bottle of house red was 15 pounds and a bottle of Leffe was 4 pounds. All was good. This was a nice place to eat. Very much French bistro.

Good quality food, good service, nice interior design. Only been twice to this place as with all the Marina restaurants it's always packed, but when have got a table, always really good.

The food and the presentation of the food is not up there with the other 2 I have visited! Don't get me wrong... More

It's a nice restaurant, of course it is part of the chain but it does always do good food! If you enjoy French cuisine it's an easy choice and a straightforward menu which always works. Nice variety in choice.

I've been a few times this visit was for breakfast. The food is what you'd expect of this chain, good quality mediocre in flavor with reasonable presentation. I had a full english which was better that a greasy spoon but then it cost a lot more. Others had a truffle egg jobby which was again good but not all that... More

I eat at brighton marina regularly at all of the restaurants but this was by far the worst. We arrived at 11:30 so we could get breakfast before 12 when last orders happen. We didn't get to order or drinks until 12:10 and then, we were refused breakfast when they reappeared to ask if we were eating, despite us asking... More
