Lovely French bistro with excellent menu

We had a late lunch here, opting for an outside table, it being a warm sunny day in such pleasant surroundings. We were attracted by the menu which offered a wide variety of French cuisine.

Very disappointed... What should I say... It's supposed to be a French café-restaurant... Normally, when you ask for a rare or medium rare cooked steak, you are supposed to have it. You must forget it, as long as you have ordered it in Café Rouge... It's a shame... Pass your way, unless you like your meat very well done...

We had a lovely meal at lunch time. The staff were excellent and very attentive. The steak meal was cooked to perfection and though busy there was not a long wait. There is seating area on the lower floor and and more unstairs. The toilets are in the basement so not ideal for those less able.

We were staying at the Brighton Thistle on a room only basis and needed to find breakfast. Whilst Cafe Rouge is a chain, and I always support local whenever possible, it is consistently excellent. It's also 20 metres from the Thistle, so very convenient.

My Husband & I decided to go to Cafe Rouge for dinner, we had booked a table for 7.30 but had arrived early. We made the staff aware of this but they didn't really seem to be grateful as we didn't want them to leave a table tied up with a reservation sign. We ordered bread and olives to start,... More

I like Cafe Rouge,and this was my first time in the Brighton one. We enjoyed our lunch and every thing was how we expect a Cafe Rouge to be: good food, the décor is interesting and the atmosphere relaxing.

If you ever want to eat French in Brighton, try the Café Rouge. Nice Restaurant which gives you the Feeling of Montmartre, fine food (try the "Poulet Breton) AND the best Crème Brulée I ever had (I always do the Crème Brulée-test)

Stopped by after many years for coffee vand snack. Still like the décor but service was only average as was the fare but at least a lot better than a chain but I couldn't stretch to 4 star sadly.

Fantastic breakfast, even better as you can get a 2 for 1 voucher which makes the cost extremely reasonable.
