“Great food, welcoming staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

As part of a day out in Manchester with my mum and daughter (3 generations), we chose to have lunch in this branch of Cafe Rouge. We have been here before on several occasions, with mostly good results, but this visit stands out! We were shown to a table well away from the busy part of the restaurant. Our waiter, Kieran, was vary attentive, anticipating our needs and even agreeing with good grace to take a photo of us three ladies. The food was very good, as was the wine, and we were allowed a generous amount of time to finish our courses. The lift was not working when my mum wanted to visit the ladies (upstairs) and we were directed immediately to the ground floor disabled loos, with the minimum of fuss.
These occasions, when we meet up, are quite precious to us and I can happily confirm that Cafe Rouge ticked all the boxes on this occasion!

“just okay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

food was okay for the price but the service was very slow considering there were only two other tables in. had to eat with our coats on as it was freezing inside and the floor staff went out the front door for several cigarettes.
