Having been a Cafe Rouge fan for many years we were disappointed by the evening at Henley. The restaurant has had a refurb but not much seems to have changed. The new menu was not up to much and what we fancied was unavailable. Tempura Moules were tiny and the charcuterie was tough and not much flavour. Ordered the burger... More

A quiet early Thursday evening for a meal before a show. There were few diners inside and a few more drinking out on the pavement seats. No pressure on the staff then so the service should be good. Not a bit of it. Slow and tardy will best describe our experience. No-one to greet us as we arrived. We had... More

My normal rule is to quietly leave a restaurant if no service interest is shown after five to ten minutes maximum. Because I like Cafe Rouge Henley, today I left after sitting for fifteen minutes on their outside tables in the sunshine without being approached by one member of staff. The restaurant was not overly busy at 15.00 but the... More

Visited here on several occasion with both family and friends. On some occasions both the service and food was very good. But on others both have been poor. There are better places in Henley to eat and for the same price or cheaper. Due to its varying consistency we probably won't be visiting again in the foreseeable future.

great staff who clearly have a number of regulars who they seem to know well. Had a lunch there which meant we recived a voucher for 2 for 1 breakfast for the following day. This meant two breakfasts and teas for a tenner ! Plus we got another voucher for the next day so went back again !

Poor acoustics but the food is tasty. Basically you know what you are going to get and they deliver. I cannot think of much else to say but if you want to park you can go to the car park at Waitrose or you if you are lucky you will get somewhere on the street after 6pm. Maybe that is... More

Pros If I were giving stars on food only then we'd give this establishment 5. Very very tasty food indeed. Good clean restaurant Cons We visited 4-6pm and only a couple of other tables were being used when we arrived yet we had to remind waitress the kids would like to use the pencils and colouring sheets she'd mentioned to...
