Had the most amazing family meal at Cafe Vin Cinq in Rugby last night. It was our first visit and we were impresed with the surroundings. Our waitress Briony was attentive and knowledgeable and couldn't have been better! The starters were great but the mains were even better. Two of us had the Pork Belly and the the other two... More

My first experience of so called 'fine dining'. Not the kind of place we tend to eat but as it was my daughter's birthday and we had a taste card we thought we'd give it a go. Have to say, it was possibly the most satisfied I've ever been after dining out. Would have been quite expensive if it hadn't... More

The food is exquisite, the staff are very friendly, the restaurant itself is intimate and fantastic. I've never had a meal where I've been disappointed, so in my personal opinion, it's the best restaurant in town.

My wife book us a table at Cafe Vin Cinq to celebrate the New Year in. At £65 per head, it's not cheap, by any standard. But let me tell you......it was worth every penny. A glass of fizz and canapés on arrival served upstairs (2nd floor) in the wine bar area, We were then shown to our table on... More

Have been a big fan of Cafe Vin Cinq since we moved to Rugby few years ago, the food is consistently delicious, atmosphere intimate even when really busy (which it usually is) and customer service is second to none with Anna the maitre de running a tight ship. The addition of the cocktail bar on the top floor makes Cafe... More

We have eaten at Café Vin Cinq on a number of occasions and from time to I have to write a review. Perfect yet again, this time we both ordered the Ultimate Surf and Turf and it was beautiful. Needless to say the service was outstanding. Love it.

we wanted to go somewhere nice for my mums birthday lunch on Friday 12th December so thought Cafe Vin Cinq would be the ideal place. We hadn't booked but they were not full so got a table upstairs. There were other people sat up there too. We sat there for almost 30 mins and not one member of staff acknowledged... More
