Located on the waterfront at Brighton Marina, Café Rouge embodies the style and je ne sais quoi of French dining, offering a winning combination of stunning sea views, great food and a unique selection of wines. With a fantastic menu filled with delicious innovative takes on the classics and dishes inspired by different regions of France, there's something to suit everyone.

I've been here a lot of times and reviewed it before. The last one I gave 4 of 5 (just tipping a 3) as food quality and view offset the painfully slow service. The location of this Cafe Rouge is second to none offering outdoor seating in the summer and some great views across the marina. On my last visit... More

go every month on vouchers giving half price breakfasts, lunch and dinner but it's still good value at full price with big space no clutter or noise and great location over the marina

I for one love this place, Coffee here is very nice and there selection of light deserts or sandwiches at lunch time. I also had a work get to get her here and ate the garlic chick and fries which sounds so boring but was amazing juicy and flavoursome 💯❤️🙌

Eaten here a few times. Always enjoyable. Food good staff friendly and helpful. They take gourmet cards . You can also use tesco points to change to vouchers to use at most cafe rouge places. The one at Brighton marina is in a good location overlooking the harbour . There are other restaurants around and shops.

Popped in for dinner. Had a perfect attentive waitress, who didn't constantly hassle us, but knew exactly when we needed her. Bit of a star by the name of Anna. Loved the food. Everything was really well prepared and we both enjoyed it immensely. Can't wait to go back.

It was about 4pm and we were greeted by a waiter that without any hesitation told us immediately "The place is full, we can not... More

We're staying in Brighton for the Christmas week. As the Marina is a 10 min walk, it's a handy place to eat. We love Cafe Rouge & we were not disappointed, I had the Confit De Canard it was cooked to perfection, even had to send my compliments to the chef!! Our waiter did a really good job as well,...
