Great good, awful service

Food was lovely but unfortunately this was let down by the service. We were constantly waiting for drinks, cutlery, sauces and even trying to pay the bill. Not sure I wound return.. It's a shame as the refurb is great and the steak was good - even if we did have to wait 10 minutes for a steak knife!

We have eaten here on a number occasions as we live in 5 mins from the town centre and every time we have eaten here something has been wrong - Cold food, poor service, wrong drinks you name it. We are so unhappy with this Cafe Rouge that we would rather drive to Esher and eat at the Cafe Rouge.

Spur of the moment decision to go here for lunch as an early wedding anniversary treat. The food is excellent, well cooked and tasty. The staff were friendly and attentive.

The staff are brilliant always welcoming, we are regular visitors. The staff go out of their way to make sure everything is as good as can be. We always find the meals are good value. We will sometimes go for breakfast as well as visit in the evening for dinner. The Macon Rouge is a must!

We live in Epsom & visit Cafe Rouge about once every 2 months. We went on a Thursday night in August in the week that it opened after having been refurbished. There are new tables and chairs and it had been redecorated, a lovely new fresh feel about it. Also noticeable that there were more staff in attendance so the... More

A lovely place to relax with the morning paper with an espresso. Quaint and charming with a high quality of breakfast, whether that be a french or english.

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...
