I agree with the majority of reviews....

It's ok. Staff were nice, food was average, service was ok but the restaurant wasn't busy. The best bit is the fact that it's at the Marina and on a nice sunny day that means a lot

The Cafe Rouge in Brighton itself, which is in The Lanes, is better. At the Marina my salad was tired and the steak a little cold, although sufficiently rare, but with floppy French Fries. However the restaurant overlooks the sea and is very pleasant in itself. The service was good. For better food go to the one in town -... More

As it's part of a chain you'd expect the standard of food to be the same in each branch, but the one in Chiswick, which we visit often, is so much better than this one. My partner's omelette was rubbery, my mussels were chewy and overcooked and the onion soup was cold and came with some sort of light brioche... More

Popped in for a snack with the family. The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly with our one year old grandson - though one member of staff did say that all the wines were French including the pinot grigio (which was, of course, Italian and very average for the price). The sad thing was that the food was totally... More

A large Cafe Rouge with the typical red and yellow interior and all the classics on the menu. Always enjoyable, always good food that is prepared to order and very,very nice deserts .... yumm yumm. You either love or hate the old-fashioned, often french, music in the background. At this particular Cafe Rouge the staff are very helpful and very... More

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
