Second visit in a few months for family birthdays and definitely hope to make a third trip soon. Sharing steak is thoroughly recommended.

Always here for date nights/dinner and excellent cocktails on the top floor for nights out. The a la carte menu is small, but seaonal. The few dishes on there are well chosen and perfectly prepared. Excellent value during the week if you have a tastecard too. Highly recommended. Really beats soulless places like Prezzo and the rest. (And the wines... More

This is my absolute favortite resturant in rugby. It's is beautifully furnished with a shabby chic french cheatu feel to it. The upstairs cocktail bar is friendly and warm and there staff there are brilliant. Fizz especially. (He's a good laugh) The food is delicious and presented beautifully. Like I said, my favorite resturant in Rugby!

Haven't actually eaten here (yet) but the cocktail bar has become a staple of a Rugby night out. The cocktails are very good value for money and it has a really good atmosphere. The staff are always polite and helpful. Will eventually get around to sitting down for a meal here.

I ate here in July for my birthday. It's a great looking place. The food was nice but we went on a Monday night and they only offered us the set menu so I'd like to go back and try the main a la carte menu another time. The set menu is really good value though. We had 2 courses... More

We went for brunch and it was delightful ! I had a massive English breakfast - really well cooked whilst my wife had the best granola in the world apparently ! My fruit smoothie was excellent. The coffee was good too. Staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We are looking forward to going back.

We visited Cafe Vin Cinq on Monday evening of this week. Monday is set price menu night. 2 courses is £13 3 courses is £16. Unbelievable value for food and service of this high standard. The restaurant was nicely busy and the waitresses were running around up and down the stairs very efficiently. We had pigs cheek to start and... More

Visited with my wife for our wedding anniversary meal. The starter of scallops was to die for! Steak was good as well. Service was slow and we were told that one chef had walked out and that only two waitresses on duty. We actually had to request attention for extra drinks and to get the sweet menu. The sweet (Eton... More
