Nice summer Al fresco

Enjoyed a leisurely Sunday afternoon sat outside with a bottle of wine and moules and frites. I had wanted the minute steak but they had run out, really nice meal and great location right in the hustle of brighton lower laines. Can't wait for it to be summer again to do this all over again.

My boyfriend and I ate here pretty late on a Friday night (8PM) when we were staying at the hotel just next to it (The Thistle) and the staff were so attentive, friendly and it was quite quiet.. The food was so delicious & I can't remember now which red wine we had but they had a great selection. I... More

Good meal, lovely food. Tried something new, had the vegetable gratin and will definately have it again. Side salad was delicious and simple. Everyone enjoyed their food, from starters to puds. Lovely bubbly too and coffee.

I hadn't been in Cafe Rouge for some time as I do find it over rated and quite expensive. I did visit today and ordered a Croque Monsieur (a toasted cheese and ham sandwich) which comes with fries. It was £8 which is expensive in my opinion and not only that - it wasn't toasted properly and was just a... More

In the context of a very bustling town of Brighton, even in the winter, it is a pleasure to be welcomed by this quaint French Bistro. With a nice menu that ranges from Croques Monsieur et Madame, to croquettes and salads, all is well! Even when we asked for a soupe de cresson that was not on offer for lunch,... More

Have previously been here on another visit to the city. The service is still as good as it always has been. I am never quite sure whether they are genuine accents for false ones put on as part of the show! The menu isn't very extensive but should have something to cover all tastes. I personally wouldn't eat here unless... More

Cafe rouge is one of my favourites on the high street. I was a little disappointed that at 5pm on a Friday they had run out of pate, as that's one of the reason we go. However the food and staff were lovely and we still enjoyed our time there.
