Without doubt. The best restaurant in Rugby.

This is not the first time my wife and I have dined here, but to go out on a Monday night is a first. I'm not sure how long the promotion has been running, but on Monday nights the restaurant offers a fixed menu with £13 for 2 courses or £16 for 3 courses. I consider this to be excellent... read more

So this review is based on I think my 4th visit to Cafe Vin Cinq, but better late than never? We should be grateful to have such a superb restaurant in Rugby. We ate there on 13th May for my wife's birthday. The food was fabulous - my pigs cheek was lovely, as was my wife's goats cheese. Our mains... More

This is a little restaurant from the outside but the food and service belie its small size. Portions are very generous and the choice of menu is great. We have been for lunch and dinner and both were excellent.

Not sure how they do it? some new members of the team yet still top class service, food simply gets better each time we visit. The management of this restaurant are in my opinion one of the best i've seen and I have been to some very exclusive ones just keep it up as Rugby needs a top class venue.

I met up with an old friend for lunch at this atmospheric bistro. I am always pleased to see a limited menu because in my experience a few dishes done well, is better than many done badly. True to form all three courses were delicious. My friend is mainly vegetarian, but will eat fish. I was a little worried that... More
