“Lovely loction - watch out for inaudible airport announcements!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

The Cafe Rouge at Gatwick is a pleasant place to have coffee or a meal: it's the standard menu of course, but unlike most other establishments in airports, there are large windows. BUT be aware that you will not be able to hear airport announcements! One traveler realised they'd lost their passport and boarding pass only to find out the airport staff had been calling out their name for two hours!

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I visited Cafe Rouge with a work colleague whilst waiting to fly out on a business trip. I had moules mariniere which was not only very tasty, but generously portioned too. Good value too - definitely recommended

“Surprisingly good at busy Gatwick Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Just before catching an early flight departing from London's Gatwick Airport, we found Café Rouge on its South Terminal. An amazing surprise, indeed. Delicious French style breakfast, with unforgettable crispy croissants. Extremely friendly service and a Portuguese waiter, Mr. Miguel, that really makes the difference. Good food and excellent service. What else you need on an early morning breakfast? A smiling and friendly welcome. Thank you, Mr. Miguel. And Bon Apetit!

My son and I love to have an English breakfast just before we go away and we chose Cafe Rouge. Food was lovely, service was good - the staff were very attentive.

“Quick breakfast before a flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

My partner and I had breakfast here before a flight. The food is brought quickly which is obviously important at an airport and it was good quality for the price.
