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

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
