“Terrible food and worse service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Children's food was cold as were our main courses. Children's ice cream was melted to which the waitress replied "oh well pretend it's milkshake". Definitely avoid

“Standard food, OK service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The Cafe Rouge menu is standard and the food is what you'd expect from a 'fake French' chain - not bad but not exactly inspiring. That said, if you know what to expect it will not disappoint, however the service here was not as efficient as in other locations and the surroundings of Whitley’s rather dead & soulless.

I would return though, for a quick bite on a weekday or for lunch.

“Standard fare but good, nevertheless”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Cafe Rouge is a British take on French food and, in many cases, it does it better! This restaurant is rarely busy so a table is always available. Good cooking!

“Very nice service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stopped in for a quick dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the great service. A very friendly waitress with a french accent and very eager to please brought me my food quickly and always with a friendly word.

Food was good and the bill quite reasonable.
