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

Recently I bumped into a friend while shopping in Epsom. We arranged to meet up an hour later and go to Cafe Rouge for a bite to eat and a catch-up. We were greeted with a friendly smile and taken to a table of our choice as the restaurant was busy but not full. Service was excellent and we enjoyed... More

This restaurant has always been a bit of hit or miss affair but today's Sunday lunch was most definitely a miss ! The butter that arrived with the bread basket was thrown on a napkin... No dish ! The sauce ordered with the steak was missing. Don't go at peak times.... They just can't cope.

This particular Cafe Rouge have never disappointed us with their meals. Steaks are cooked till perfection, starters are small but very appetizing. And it is not pricey at all. sometimes they have two for one options or lunch deals. Great
