My children like Cafe Rouge food and having had a few problems with our oven last week we happened to go twice in one week to our local one in Little Clarendon Street, Oxford. The first visit we were initially served by a wonderful waiter and everything seemed fine until the shift changed. Our new waiter seemed to think we... More

We had not visited this branch before and there was a sign outside saying they had a rear courtyard but when we asked to be seated there we were told it was closed, this was around 5.30pm. A jug of water was brought to the table with our drinks order, without asking for this, which was a nice touch. We... More

This was our 2nd time at the Cafe Rouge, both times we left fully satisfied with the food, and warm service. It's even off the beaten path so to speak. We love cafe Rouge and will visit again!

Quite a walk from the main centre, but worth it for the food....and when you have a 25% off voucher! Tucked down a small street with other European cafés/restaurants. Loved the decor as usual and the snooty frenchness of the waiter :)

We are regulars, thanks to tesco clubcard deals,and never have we been disappointed. Tonight's meal was superb as usual, 3 courses each, all lovely, a beer, a large glass of wine, and water, and we had to shell out £9.75 (plus tip). We said, as usual, that if we had paid full price it would still have been good value.... More

Sullen and slow service. Had to ask for dirty table to wiped, was still left wet and sticky. Menus the same. Food was same old menu but okay. Maxed how varied service can be, we have some real gems in Bristol, both the Park Row and the Cabot Circus restaurants are excellent, but in Oxford, don't bother

8 of us ate here last night and the whole experience was excellent. We all shared 3 mixed starters which when we ran out of bread were topped up quickly with lovely warm bread. I had fillet steak and it was cooked to perfection with fries and garlic lobster butter. All meals were fantastic. We had copious amounts of alcohol... More

This rather special Café Rouge has a special advantage in hot weather, a back yard with tree and parasol shade making it a welcome oasis.For this reason it can be crowded and noisy but that adds to the atmosphere. Very well prepared and presented food with adequate wine list. Service frantic but efficient I don't know how the friendly staff... More

Despite being a chain, the Oxford Cafe Rouge has provided us with many good meals at a reasonable price. A good and varied menu, maintaining a high standard of food and wine.
