Terrible service - we had to go searching for service after sitting at an outside table for 10 minutes without menus or any kind of sign of service. The worst coffee I've had in a long time. Appalling pastries - the ones you buy at M&S in a packet are better.

Went for a catch up with friends, the Camembert was still cold in the middle, the dauphinois was appalling sent one back as dry and totally over cooked, the next one was nearly as bad, service was very slow but that was because there was one waitress for the whole restaurant who was actually lovely but needed support and only...

Great big sign outside proudly proclaimed ' breakfast served until 12 noon' arrived at 11.40 to be told no breakfast available As breakfast 'was finished' and they'd finished serving. No lunch orders could be accepted until 12 noon. But we could have a drink if we liked. No thanks

I have eaten here a number of times before and always had a good experience, however this time service was poor. The main course arrived before the table was cleared, the empty bottles were never cleared away so we were cramped. The waiter although polite, was only enthusiastic about the house beer. The food was mediocre. The toilets were not... More

Popped in for lunch and received a lovely friendly welcome. We had a sharing platter which was lovely, though maybe a bit small for the price. The options for dessert weren't explained so we went for 'coffee and cake' option (of which they only had 2 available out of 3 on the menu) without being advised there were other sweets... More

Have eaten here a few times for lunch and dinner. Always great service. Lunch and dinner both excellent for meal choices. Atmosphere at lunch very busy and noisy. Just as we like it. Lots of happy people enjoying their friends and family. Definitely recommend for your next meal.

When Café Rouge first started out in 1989 it had a fresh feel about it and found an attractive niche as a French styled restaurant. However many takeovers later and some unsavoury PR apropos Tipping, so much so that in 2008 the company was reported as paying staff less than the legal minimum wage, relying on tips to make up...

I am not a fan of restaurants that constantly offer vouchers as it just means they inflate their price and people who do not have vouchers are disadvantaged. Always check for vouchers before going - food is ok does what it says on the tin although had to send mussels back as they were so salty - service is good... More
