This was the second time that I had visited Cafe Vin Cinq. I knew that they did good food but on this occasion it seemed that the food tasted better than before. My wife and I visited as a treat to ourselves for a well earned break. As we entered the restaurant we greeted by the waiting staff and shown... More

My wife and I had been meaning to visit Cafe Vin Cinq for a while and finally had lunch here - we wish we'd gone sooner! We sat outside with our daughter in her pushchair and the staff were great - really helpful and accommodating without crowding us. We both ate from the fixed menu and it was great -... More

It's a shame we were only visiting Rugby for the day as Cafe vin Cinq is such a lovely place, I wish there was one in my hometown. Couldn't believe how reasonable the prices were for such a classy, pretty venue, great friendly service and gorgeous food. The menu per meal period is reassuringly limited and has something delicious for... More

This was our first visit to Cafe Vin Cinq following a recommendation and we certainly weren't disappointed. A very warm welcome greeted us and all the staff were very friendly and efficient providing excellent service throughout the evening. A good choice of dishes are available and all those chosen were presented and cooked extremely well.

Cafe vin Cinq is one of our firm favourites in Rugby. A beautifully decorated restaurant, it's got a great ambience for a nice meal out. The menu is always good with plenty of choice, and the food always well executed and presented. We always mean to have the cheeseboard which comes highly recommended from a friend but always get far... More

My husband and I went back to Cafe Vin Cinq to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. Great service, great food and a great place. Great choice of food and all served to a very high quality. We both loved every element of our visit. Thank you again for a wonderful night.

Me and my friend came for lunch. Ordered Eggs Benedict & Beer Battered Fishfinger Sandwich. Both were fresh, hot, well presented and delicious. The ham on the eggs benedict was really thick, proper home style cooked ham and the 'fishfingers' couldn't have been more posh! Beautiful batter, fresh lovely fish fillets inside and stacks of tartare sauce. The bread was... More

An outstanding meal in an intimate but friendly setting. Superb decor, service, food and ambience throughout our visit, which started in the very comfortable cocktail bar where the drinks were excellent. The 40 ounce sharing steak was mouthwatering, it's like a Spanish chuleton de ternera, and was cooked perfectly the way we wanted it, truly blue; so many restaurants get... More
